Favorite band or artist of all time?

1st of all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone at Audiogon!
I've Have been thinking about it(hundreds of choices)and lately  just wondering, If you had to pick just one, what would be your favorite band or artist of all time???
 Extremely hard decision!, but Mine would be Elton John.
(deeply rooted since I was 10 or 11) Old fart now😎
My go-to is 311. A little bit of everything, mixed into one. 
The Grateful Dead
The Disco Biscuits 
Anthony Phillips, his early stuff to include the Private Parts & Pieces series.
What, Ant Phillips, not Steve Hackett?  Interesting choice!
I am appalled by this blog's nearly total lack of jazz, blues, and classical artists listed, not to mention music from this century.  Jeezus, I'm 72 ,but I'm not too old to appreciate current greatness.  Do most of you just listen to Alternative Rock and Country stations with short playlists of old hits.  Go to a thrift shop and risk 50 cents for some classical CD's.  For the price, take chances.  Go to a concert.
