Are there any 'famous' users - such as musicians, journalists, authors, major bloggers?

I'm up for discovering some new music - and I thought it would be very cool if any of my favourite musicians had a profile - any ideas?

Warren Ellis is on there. So is William Shunn.

Joi Ito? He's pretty well known in some circles.

I think Jason Kottke uses it as well. Can't think of any musicians, though.

Gerard Cosloy (of Matador Records fame) visited my profile once (you can see who visits you if you're a paid member).

Matt Biddulph hooked up the stations BBC Radio 1, Radio 2, 6Music and 1Xtra to upload what tracks they broadcast.

Well.. depends on your definition of 'famous.' If you're an Art Brut fan, you'll find the guitarist that preceded Jasper Future (His name's Chris Chinchilla) here. That might be of interest to some.

There are lots of famous bloggers, probably a nearly all of 'em. But the other categories are there too, especially if you expand to include people who update their playlists infrequently. Here's Newsweek's Steven Levy. Hey, it's Cory Doctorow, famous blogger and author. Or Lynne Johnson, editor of and ex-Vibe and Spin. And I think Waxploitation is actually an account for that record label.

Wil Wheaton. He loves the Pink Floyd.
