THREE GREAT MUSICIANS BORN ON SEPTEMBER 23RD- HOW WOULD YOU RANK THEM?

Bruce Springsteen's 10 Greatest Concerts | Consequence of Sound

Every September 23rd I spend at least 15 minutes thinking about this question- three music legends born on a September 23rd- Jazz legend John Coltrane in 1926, Ray Charles in 1930 and Bruce Springsteen in 1949 – how would you rank them in order of greatness? I have listened to more Springsteen than Coltrane and Charles-but I have spent a lot of time listening to all three over the years. In order of greatness-[Jim Morrison was born on this date also- but not THE Jim Morrison- a baseball player Jim Morrison- if it was The Doors singer he would be a distant 4th-}

  1. The order for me would be Springsteen, Ray Charles, and Coltrane…has nothing to do with talent…it’s who I know the best…but either of them would be #1 on different lists.

  2. Yeah, I also have no real idea how to rank those three.

    (There is an actual distant 4th though – Julio Iglesias whose superstardom I find baffling)
