- Bono (Paul Hewson)/The Edge (David Evans)/Adam Clayton/Larry Mullen (U2)
- Garth Brooks
- Leonard Cohen
- Elvis Costello
- Dion DiMucci
- David Gates (Bread)
- Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens)
- Tommy James
- John Mellencamp
- Lou Reed
- Leon Russell
- Maurice White/Philip Bailey/Verdine White/Larry Dunn/Al McKay (Earth, Wind and Fire)
