To many guitarists influenced by the progressive rock movement of the 1970s, Steve Hackett stands as one of, if not the high priest of the six string. Hackett built a name for himself as a guitar shreader during his career with the band Genesis, where he would go on to perfect a system of guitar playing known as "tapping" - a technique that many would often (falsely) attribute to Eddie Van Halen. Following Genesis front man Peter Gabriel's lead in the mid 70s, Hackett would leave Genesis to pursue a solo career, allowing him to focus more on perfecting his guitar technique, particularly with classical guitar, on top of releasing several critically acclaimed progressive rock albums over the course of the last three decades.

London-based electropop band Bastille is the project of producer Dan Smith. Though the band started off as a monicker for Smith, it quickly evolved into a four-piece ensemble that helps fully realize Smith's bedroom-produced tunes with rippling melodies. With its newly rounded sound Bastille released its debut effort Flaws/Icarus, in 2011.

Since signing up as the lead singer of Led Zeppelin, arguably the greatest rock band of all time, Robert Plant has enjoyed a long and storied career that's seen him bring his singular voice to a diverse array of musical endeavors. As Led Zeppelin's iconic front man, Plant created the model virtually all rock front men have been measured against. After Led Zeppelin broke up in 1980, Plant has continually flummoxed his critics by having voyages into the worlds of new wave, country and world music.

Some musicians are a perfect reflection of the time, place and scene that they exist in. In the case of electronic producer Skrillex (real name: Sonny Moore), his sound manages to perfectly encapsulate the ever changing, and evolving, modern electronic scene that exists in America. By incorporating elements of glitch, dubstep, electronica, electro-house and other dance-friendly genres, Skrillex makes a unique style of music that is rarely boring and almost never lifeless. Born in 1988, Skrillex is a young producer who's eager to prove his worth amongst other well respected artists and if his debut 2010 album is any inclination of where he's heading, it's safe to say that he'll have a fairly successful future as an electronic producer.
