Wow, can't believe ?uestlove is that low... Probably the most unique/talented of all those on that list. That being said, I'm not sure about everyone on that list, but Dave Grohl and Phil Collins should be considered multi-instrumentalists shouldn't they?

Dave Grohl didn't really make his money from drumming. Just saying.
