5. Paul McCartney
The amount of music that Paul McCartney has released since The Beatles broke up is stunning, and much of it has stood the test of time. Songs like "Maybe I'm Amazed," "Band On The Run," "Live And Let Die" and "Let Me Roll It" are flawless to the point that we'll forgive him for "My Love" and "Silly Love Songs." He's also quite willing to experiment, as he's proven with his ongoing series of Fireman LP's. Despite his completely irrational fears, nobody will ever think of him as Salieri to Lennon's Mozart.
