Keeping in mind these are my favorites, not who might really be the best

Don Henley
No list of mine would be complete without Blackmore, Gillan, Glover, Lord, Paice
Jagger-Richards
Roger Waters
Tyler Connelly is one of my current favs

by the name of Allah the Gracious the Merciful
Say, "I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak From the evil of that which He created
And from the evil of darkness when it settles And from the evil of the blowers in knots
And from the evil of an envier when he envies"
truthful was Allah The Most High And Great

At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new.
This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense. -- Carl Sagan
