August 13th marks the celebration of all things left-handed. Although 10-15% of the world's population is left-handed, the percentage is considerably higher among musicians. Because left-handed instruments were rare back in the day of some of the individuals on this list, they didn't a speed bump get in their way. Some had to re-string their guitars, or re-arrange the orientation of their drum kits, or even learn to play the guitar upside-down!

So in case you wind up in left field, give your favorite left-handed person some left-handed compliments and a left-handed high-five!
