My list is very extensive, but to narrow it down...
Janis Joplin - Her voice...amazing, just amazing.
Flea - One of the great bass gods. He is my main influence on bass and was the one to inspire me to pick a bass up.
Omar Rodriguez Lopez - No traditional music training, but still comes up with the best solos and spontaneous jams I've ever heard.
Jimi Hendrix - Self explanatory, but he's one of my favorites mostly because he pioneered a different way to play the guitar.
Johnny Greenwood - A musical genius in my eyes. He plays, experiments with, and records so many different instruments in amazing ways.
And 100 miles is a long drive inside a car
200 miles is a long drive inside a car
300 miles is a long drive inside a car
400 miles is a long drive inside a car
500 miles is a REAL LONG DRIVE INSIDE A CAR
600 miles is a long drive inside a car
700 miles is a long drive inside a car
800 miles is a long drive inside a car
900 miles is a long long long long ways in a car
