Default Longest Creativity Peak

Some great lad from some other place has put forward the following suggestion: "let's discuss what musicians have maintained their creativity peaks for the longest." Wouldn't it be interesting to talk about this?
I'd single out Steve Morse, a somewhat underrated musician: "The Great Spectacular", by his D. Dregs, came out in 1975; and this above par creativity lasted until 1996, when his wondrous "Stressfest" appeared.

Paul McCartney 1962-1984. Then he recorded Press To Play that sucks.

JUST A FEW musical geniuses that never had a creativity "peak" because their creativity never decreased during their careers (the years represent both the duration of their career and their so-called creativity "peak"):
Mikael Akerfeldt 1992-Present (Opeth, ex-Bloodbath)
Jari Maenpaa 2001-Present (ex-Ensiferum, Wintersun)
Devin Townsend 1993-Present (ex-Strapping Young Lad, Devin Townsend Project)
David Gold 2002-2011 RIP (Woods of Ypres)
John Haughm 1990-Present (Agalloch)
Benjamin Burnley 1998-Present (Breaking Benjamin)

Totally agree with the Steve Morse, even while with Deep Purple he still shines. Saw this one live not too long ago, and he played it flawlessly:



Also, Joe Satriani has been solid for decades.

Totally! Morse is famous all right, worshipped by some and all; but I still think him underrated: his albums are beyond amazing: tango is one of the only styles he might no be able to play (well). Glorious musician!
Let's hope Guthrie Govan will keep his "creativity peak" throughout his life!

Isn't self portrait in there though? Not that I'd know anything about it (I do like wigwam) but I know everyone hates it.
