comment Do musicians that began playing from an early age have an incontestable advantage?
@AmericanLuke at least according to Wikipedia the critical period for language hypothesis is not totally uncontroversial. The chances that anyone has observed an unambiguous signal for a similar effect on highest levels of musical skill acquisition are slim to none. That's why I prefer the formulation in terms of "famous performers who started as adults" -- by construction, we (should) know who the ensemble of famous performers are.

comment Do musicians that began playing from an early age have an incontestable advantage?
+1 IMHO Jimi Hendrix's start at the age of 15 (the latest start I could find) does not count as a counter-example since it was pre adulthood. Dr. John's transition to piano in adulthood (the other reasonable example I could find) occurred after an early start on guitar does not count as a counter example. It is hard to prove a negative, but in this case I do believe that we (collectively) would know of the counter-examples, if they in fact existed.
