Sorry man you're absolutely right about leaving Hendrix out and such. Unfortunately I was only allowed 10 threads for a poll and was limited. I tried to be somewhat diverse in my selections, but you are totally right in Page and Hendrix. I'm a left handed player so can agree with you Hendrix selection. Page is great in the studio, but exceptionally sloppy live, in my opinion. Hendrix on the on the hand, was an open door for musicians to go through and was an innovative master. That was one creative guy. Van Halen wasn't influenced too much by him though and considered Clapton his greatest influence. Even though he doesn't sound like him, which makes me appreciate him even more.Originally posted by dolfan25
I would say Clapton, BUT you have failed to put in some of the best. Jimy Page of Zeppelin, Hendrix, Pete Townshed of The Who, Edge(U2), and I think Keith Richards of the Stones, oh and I even though I hate the band AC/DC's Angus Young. My top 2 are Page and Hendrix.Steve Vai is not in their league creativly.
Yeah we is one of Joe Satriani's proteges' and his totally AWESOME in his own right. He has declared a sound and tone all his own. Fast fingerwork too. Played with Alcatraz with Frank Zappa early on to get his career going. Totally amazing player.Originally posted by QuebecFinsFan
they're all great guitarist but Vai is something special.... Just listen to Ã‚Â«For The Love Of The GodÃ‚Â»...
No, I don't have a mullet, my hair is practically 2 feet in length around my head, and no she doesn't have Pat Benatar hair, haven't you seen her pic? As for the music, music from different generations is good. There's good stuff from the 50's, 60's 70's 80's, and 90's. We're working on the 21st century right now. The music you grew up with is generally your favorite, and we grew up with the 80's stuff. What is your favorite? Says your were born in '78, the year my favorite album came out, Van Halen's self titled debut. Lot's of good stuff came out of the 80's it's just right now, it's still considered too new. Remember when disco was in in the late 90's? Same thing. Give it time it'll come around. Good music came out of every decade and generation, you just have to open your ears to appreciate it.
