This is a list of musicians who remind me of musicians from the past. I'm not talking in terms of their music, per se. If I were, we could just put in Wolfmother and Jet and be done with it. But I'm talking about their effect on music. I strongly encourage you to disagree or suggest your own. But give some reasons, I thought sort of hard about this.
1 Rush
Dream Theater

Amazing musicality all around. Questionable vocals. At times they have been accused of giving up the song for wankery, sometimes accused of lacking soul.
2 Axl Rose
Kanye West

Whiners. Known to rub their fans the wrong way. They think they are the messiahs and challenge those who think otherwise. I'm waiting for Kanye's Chinese Democracy.
3 Pink Floyd
The Mars Volta

Spacey music. They both sing about friends lost. Spaced out. Space. The Mars Volta needs a lazer light show, the transformation would be complete.
4 Frank Zappa
Mike Patton

They have created some crazy, diverse music. They voices are far from ordinary, both have led their bands to great heights and embarrassing downfalls (I'm going on hearsay for Patton).
5 George Clinton
Snoop Dogg

Have either of these guys been sober? The drugs have permeated through both of their music, in Snoop's characteristic delivery and Clinton's trippy funk.
6 Prince
Pharrell Williams

Nice, tight little bodies oh my. The ladies love them. Both enjoy the falsetto.
7 Michael Jackson
Justin Timberlake

Again, the ladies love them. Fantastic dancers. Came from...boy bands? Is Jackson 5 a boy band? Whatever.
8 Led Zeppelin

Both took their genres of music and brought them to a completely different level, through great musicianship and great albums. Both are mystical in a slightly pretentious way. Also, I'm sure if you played "Blackwater Park" backwards, you'll get some nice Satanic messages.
