Who's The Greatest Living British Musician?

rexfeatures_3643804m.jpg

26th November 2015 – mark that date in your diary. It is not the Day of Reckoning, nor yet another Eighties film anniversary, but the day the world receives ShortList’s 400th issue. Momentous indeed. The theme we’ve chosen for the issue is ‘the greatest’. It’s broad, because that’s the way we like things.

Leading up to that date (which is now definitely in your diary), we’d like YOUR opinion. We’ve come up with some completely arbitrary lists of great living Britons, which we’d like you to rank. Simply swipe right if you think they belong on the list or left if you don’t. Like celebrity Tinder, except the people you like won’t sext you at 3am.

VOTING IS NOW CLOSED
