None of them had perfect pitch, that coveted, abstruse, and rare ability many musicians both secretly and openly desire. So, if you are an aspiring songwriter, musician, or composer, these three names might be enough to convince you to forget about absolute pitch. Some of the greatest composers in history changed the world without it. It is far more important to develop your talent and optimize that much more crucial, powerful and world shattering attribute: imagination.
Wagner did pretty well with it.
For put perfect pitch and imagination side by side and one the other will contain.
Same goes for perfect pitch's wicked stepsister, synesthesia.
Good luck to all aspiring composers and performers.
