I reckon we all show a bit of Bias when choosing people/acts for such lists. I really wanted to shoehorn Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits into my list being as they're my favourite band. Knopfler is also a very good guitarist Alchemy Live is one of my go to Albums and Mel Collins is also a great Saxaphone player who session worked on that album. I kind of held back though and put down people/acts who truly were amazing in my eyes/ears. 

The reason I went for Freddie Mercury as best male voice is due to his versatility, the man was an absolute genius. Greatest overall musician was Elvis, purely because of what he did for music at the time and his stage presence which was second to none.
