It seems like it could be a common name (even if it is a famous one). You also tend to know a lot of obscure artists, so I assumed you knew another musician by that name.

Miles Davis' popularity has reached that juicy point where if you want to address Mr. Miles Davis who is the butcher down the road from you, you have to directly state his occupation alongside. Miles Davis owns his own name. Can't be mistaken for no impersonators.

Talking about Miles (the famous one) got me thinking about Sonny Sharrock.

Some of my favorites have already been mentioned, but here's another one:

Nels Cline



He's currently the guitarist of Wilco, but I got to know him first through his pairing with Carla Bozulich on Geraldine Fibbers and Scarnella. He has a long background in experimental music, jazz fusion, free improvisation, noise. The list of people he collaborated with is long, among which are Lee Ranaldo, Thurston Moore, Mike Watt, Elliott Sharp etc...

Speaking of ...here's two in one: Nels Cline & Thurston Moore

I thought someone was going to explain why Derek Bailey was so great?

His music fills an important void. The free movement was taking jazz for a ride and he brought the guitar along.

What about Robert Fripp? and Joni Mitchell? or Bark Psychosis (I don't know the lead guitarist) ? or maybe Godspeed You Black Emperor? DO they deserve a mention in this thread?

Can`t believe there were 57 posts to this thread before Robert Fripp got a mention! He`s responsible for some really ground-breaking guitar work, and his first collaboration album with Eno, No Pussyfooting, is a masterpiece. Ironically, after that album, there was perhaps too much pussyfooting, as he adopted a more minimal/ambient style.

And how about Adrian Belew ? His solo albums, like Desire Caught By The Tail, are pretty avant-garde as far as I know, though I`ve never taken the plunge and bought one as his style seems to jump around a lot from album to album. If anyone has a recommendation, it`d be welcome !
