We all know the lenends, the old magicians that have left history in the world of magic, that have offered a great lot to the magic community with their inventions and their contributions. Some of these magicians are Ed Marlo, Larry Jennings, Jean Hugard, Le Paul, Houdini, Dai Vernon, Devant, etc. I could go on all day.
Unfortunately though many of these magicians don't exist any longer, we still do learn from what they have published. In our modern days new magicians come to the hall of fame more than we would imagine, i.e. Morgan Stebler all of a sudden to the magic community with his co-opperation with Penguin, same with Oz Pearlman. Alright I am not exactly referring to these, but we have modern magicians as Bill Malone, Lee Asher, Paul Harris, Paul Green, John Carney, Jay Sankey, Jamy Ian Swiss, Harry Blackstone (is he still alive?
), Tommy Wonder, Michael Close, Allan Ackerman, Rob stiff
So yeah you get the message.
These are basically the modern magicians we depend on for the magic community today, releasing their next biggest effect or DVD.
So I'd like to know your thoughts of which modern magicians today sort of make you feel with their contributions that all the legends still exist in our modern days. I can't think of a way to explain this question but I am doing my best. Which magician/s do you admire as much as you used to admire the oldies? Every magician is unique and offers something different to the art, but for example you cannot compare Harry Lorayne with Rob Stiff or Oz Pearlman
I think I get what you mean.
There are a lot of modern magicians I do admire, Paul Harris for his "killer" ideas of new moves and new effects, Lee Asher for his wonderful effects...Tommy Wonder, Jamy Ian Swiss, Michael Close...Michael Ammar.
I do not believe still that I will ever admire a modern magician as much as I have admired the oldies, that is just me. I'd like to hear you out on this one.
Also let me know if this is a silly question!
