Doesn't get enough props round here IMHO. The new RHCP album is first class.

A :-)

Could be because of his dark years. At least he is plaing with the peppers better than ever now :) .

For right now, for bass at least, it's the unknown guy who plays the walking line in the song "Somewhere Beyond the Sea" in the animated feature "Finding Nemo;" the end title sequence.

Frank Zappa somehow is an influence as well, though I can't specify why, really.

Neil Geraldo

And...Dave 'Feet' Rogers.

Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and Eric Clapton are my top 3 I guess. I think I learned the most about guitar from Jimmy Page.

I was big into Steve Howe of Yes as well. Great guitarist.

So many, I liked Chuck Berry, Alvin Lee, BB King, Marc Bolan, Ted Nugent, Peter Frampton, and on and on.

If you know something better than Rock and Roll, I'd like to hear it - Jerry Lee Lewis

Carlos Santana, for his phrasing.
Stevie Ray Vaughn, for his fire.
George Harrison, for his taste.
Jeff Beck, for his innovation.

But by far, Roy Buchanan, before I heard him, guitar playing was just a diversion, but after hearing "He will come again", I wanted to play just like that! That was the biggest motivation in my guitar playing life and I'll probabily never be that good but I have found my own voice. Thirty plus years later I'm still chasing that man and am grateful that I can still run the race!

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming......
like the passengers in his car.

My biggest influence is Eric Clapton, I play in a very similar way. Probably because he is my favourite guitarist. Also Carlos Santana, although his studio stuff is great, some of his life stuff is even more amazing.

Jeff Beck, Adrian Belew, Mark Knopfler and very early on Maury Mulheisen and Ritchie Blackmore; but I end up sounding more like Gilmour or Django depending upon whether I'm electric or acoustic. Go figure.
