    No, but i'll suggest Claude Debussey as among the runners up.

    Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

    Greatest Musician is a dead end arguement, someone else is always better at something, it's too broad of a feild for anyone to ever be the best.

    Coltrane's damned good though.

    I waffled for years between Mozart & Bach,
    then decided Bach was too pretentious to
    truly be the "Greatest" - Mozart was such
    an extraordinary, unexpected talent -

    now, I love Willie Nelson to no end -
    if I had to choose a world without either
    willie or bourbon, I'd have to drink gin ...

    but Willie's importance/contributions in the long-term history
    of music pales in comparison to the likes of Coltrane & Mozart
