Head-Fi-holic: With headphones would just be a benny.

Hillary Hahn -- my second favorite violinist of all time, and favorite living one.
Neil Peart -- greatest drummer ever -- yes, still.
Can't really compare the two, so I'll just mention them both.
Honorable mention to Steven Wilson, yes.
Buckethead -- while I'm a huge fan, he really needs an editor. He doesn't need to put out a record every single time he touches a guitar string. Cuckoo Clocks from Hell was an exercise in wankiness, I couldn't even finish listening to it. I refuse to buy anything from him without hearing it first anymore.
