A musician is a person who plays one or many musical instrument and is also referred to as an instrumentalist. History has given us some really notable music composers and performers the likes of which include names of people like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig Van Beethoven. Just like everything else, music too evolved through the ages to churn out various genres. The most noticeable evolution took place in the last 50 years. There was the Rock ‘N Roll era, which preceded the music of the 1980’s. Music underwent yet another slight change and evolved into the music of the 1990’s which was followed by pop music, house, club, trans and many others. To say that the hall of fame is reserved only for the classical musicians would be folly because even the new age music has given us people who have become legends in their own right. We have seen guitarists like Jimmy Hendrix and Jimmy Page (of Led Zepplin), drummers like Mike Portnoy (of the band Dream Theater) and John Bonham (from Led Zeppelin) and even disk jockeys like David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia, and DJ Tiesto. All of them have led very interesting live which deserves a read through. Therefore without further ado, here are the biographies of these famous men and women, along with a few details about their life stories, timelines, trivia, including information about their personal and professional lives.
