I am a devoted video-game fan and a constant cheerleader for them to be considered art, but honestly, I would give up most of the compelling stories and high-definition graphics in the world for simple pinball machines. They're crafted and mechanical, and when built with a loving hand, they can turn almost anything into a game of skill while simultaneously paying homage.

They're like themed slot machines, but with less crying...usually. Today we look at some tables based on our favorite musicians.
