Musicians Who Defined Their Genre
There are a million different ways to judge a musician's or band's talent. Regular listeners might judge it by seeing if the singer can hit high notes, or if guitarists are able to do high-speed riffs.

There are times where planning out family meals can become too hectic or filled with too many options.
