"I take sounds and change them into words."

My final musician isn't quite the flamboyant icon he once was...but, in many senses, he's become a cornerstone of modern music (and one of the most frequent musical crossword answers, alongside Yoko Ono).  That of course is Brian Peter George St. Baptiste de la Salle Eno, or simply Brian Eno.  Eno has worked as a musician, a producer, a multimedia artist, and a technological innovator.  His professional music career began with his two album tenure with Roxy Music, after which, he went on to record a multitude of solo albums, collaborations with the likes of David Bowie, John Cale, and Robert Fripp, and has produced albums for The Talking Heads, Devo, and U2.
