The Music Industry 100

If there was a list of the top 100 most influential people in the British music biz, surely Simon Cowell must be sitting smugly at the top? You’d perhaps think so, but according to the Guardian’s power-list a 23 year old lass from London is the top dawg.

The Guardian’s now annual Top 100 media list was released at the weekend and Team Adele came in at number 1. Which considering she spent a magical 16 weeks at the top of the UK charts AND sometime at the top of the US charts with her second album, it's really no surprise. Other musicians also fairing well in the list were Lady Gaga (11), Damon Albarn (24) and Team Dizzee Rascal (28). Whilst the others were mainly made-up unknown behind the scene faces.

And where did Simon Cowell come in? Number 3. See the full list here.
