Right now it's

Kurt Heasley: he can never really seem to stick with one sound or genre for more then one record and it's taught me to not set a limit for yourself when writing songs.

Spacemen 3: 2 chord songs can be the best, especially if they have loads of feedback in-between.

David Grubbs: His music helped me get into some more extreme avant-garde.

Sonic Boom: Shit guitarist, not really great at playing the keys but, somehow I think he's influential because of his influences... if that makes any sense.

Sun Ra: I don't know what I could say about this man, he has accomplished so much and gotten almost no recognition in the black community... if I had to write about anyone on black history month it would Sun Ra.

1. David Gilmour : maybe one of the best guitar players/song writers ive ever heard, the amount of emotion in his solos/songs are incredible.

2. James Hetfield : wrote almost all of metallicas riffs (my fav ever riff is either all of M.O.P or this one disgusting one in sanitarium. ) not to mention he has THE metal voice. its to incredible and will never be properly repeated.

3. Danny Carry (Of Tool) : his drumming is amazing, definitly expands your mind listening to all the crazy time signature changes and polyrythms he puts in his songs.

4. Robert Plant : this is how vocals are meant to be sung, his tone is weird and he has a very high pitched almost girl like voice but hes one of the best singers ive ever heard. his singing isnt just lyrics its actually a vocal solo.

5. Jimi Hendrix : So much emotion in his guitar work, its incredible.
