Legendary producers

I just found myself writing the words "legendary producer", and stopped myself. According to the first 100 results in Google, the following people are 'legendary producers': Dave Bascombe, Clive Chin, Youth, J Rawls, Rick Rubin, Phil Spector, J Dilla, George Martin, Tony Visconti, Arif Mardin, Joe Boyd, Steve Lillywhite, Frank Filipetti, Ski, Phil Ramone, Dr Dre, Stephen Street, Nile Rodgers, Rhythm Masters, Jim Dickinson, Kramer, King Jammy, Tom Dowd, Joel Dorn, Jack Clement, Clive Davis, Larry Smith, Trevor Horn, Jerry Wexler, Junior Vasquez, Orrin Keepnews, Flemming Rasmussen, Jimmy Jam, Owen Morris, Steve Levine, Leif Mases, Quincy Jones, Chris Tsangarides, Tony Platt, Brian Eno and John Beltran. I decided to just write "producer".

There are 146,000 references to "legendary producer", 184,000 references to "legendary hero", 96,300 to "legendary guitarist", 7,400 to "legendary engineer", 1,500 for "legendary blogger" and just 11 for "legendary guitar tech".
