Rest In Peace, you bad-ass youPosted Image

P.S. "Sundia"=Rest in Peace in Kobaian, the language invented by another of the drummers on my list, Christian Vander of the pic from their site, Elvin was Vander's first drum teacher when he was a wee lad.

Hmm, I guess I misread. I thought we were naming our favorite/influential musicians for the instrument we play. So my choices must have looked very limited! Tori Amos, Annie Lennox (Eurythmics), Bette Midler, NIN, Pink Floyd, Stabbing Westward, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Radiohead, Counting Crows, Smashing P, and I could go on for hours...

Peoples Peoples Peoples,

Som many of my fav's here are redundant that I will only mention those who I think have been left out:

Joe Tex (a poor man's James Brown, but no less a genius)

Fugazi (The Godfathers of Modern Punk)

Ray Charles (God got tired of listening to the records and recently demanded a live show)

Rollins Band (auditory amphetimines)

Clifton Chenier (the Jimi Hendrix of the zydeco, it IS possible!)

Smokin' Joe Kubek Band w/ Bnois King (the Lone-Star-State heir apparent to the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn)

Little Charlie & the Nightcats (Blistering westcoast jump blues....Little Charlie Baty slays 'em with the theme from "Batman" for an encore!)

Alejandro Escovedo (A thinking man's Bob Dylan)

Nils Lofgren (I'm not capable of further comment)

Derek Trucks Band (see comment above)

Lightenin' Hopkins (The inspiration for all of the ZZ Top songs you ever dug)

Freddie King (Texas Blues Giant)

Jim Carroll Band (NYC 80's punk visionary poet)

George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers (Modern slide guitar at its finest)

I could go on and on....

Seriously one of my favorite guitarist is Tony Iommi. Some people say that his playing is simplistic and it's what I first started learning to play on the guitar. Black Sabbath is still one of my favorite bands. Ozzy is at his best with that band.

For all you guitar players out there, there's this relatively new guy on the scene, Mick Barre, from ORTHRELM.

I've posted it here a few times, but I don't know if anyone ever checked it out. The link sends you to a page with some video footage that I've never been able to open up, and a full concert in MP3, divided in 3 parts, and all 3 in one big file.

This stuff is just Drums and Guitar, and it's nucking futs! It may be a bit too much to take...super-fast Heavy Metal fragments going at light-speed. But if you can wrap your head around it, this guy's doing shit on the level of a kind of Thrash-Metal many ideas going by that you gotta pay attention to catch it all.

In fact, if you like Coltrane's "Interstellar Space" album, I think you'll like this tooPosted Image

I don't think you can right-click and save the file, so if you like it, get your tape-decks connected to the PC. And if you know a way I can grab the MP3 without needing a tape deck, please let me know.

My friend described it as "The sound of a million spaceships colliding at once", so be warnedPosted Image For adventurous listeners only!
