ok who is your favorite musician or band

not most talented...not who can shred the best..not who can do the most 1/64 notes in a row without missing.I'm not looking for some esoteric bullshit no one ever heard of either

At the end of the day while sitting on the back veranda drinking a sam adams who do you unwind to that people actually have heard of? What is your *that's just fucking cool* stuff?Any genre...dont care.50's doop to metal to pop to whatever.

Lets see the bottom line that when you need to unwind what you play

1. Eddie Vedder and Pearl Jam

his/their music just hits me in the gut. I've been listening for 20+ years and don't see any chance of ever stopping. My favorite PJ memory were the three San Francisco shows back in the summer of 2006. Eddie sang "Last Kiss" and held my daughter's hand for part of the song and sang part of it to me. I am such a dork.

btw - what about you??

7. That's a tough one Bob. Really depends on the type of day I've had and the mood I'm in.

Little Feat if it's been a rough day.


Montrose if I need to get my motor running.


Stevie Ray Vaughn for everything else.

30. +1 - - after several years of personal deliberation

And of the many bands and artist I have enjoyed and followed, it has finally come down to The Pink Floyd.
I've been churning through the entire discography in the past few weeks, and, to coin a phrase, they "Speak to Me"

Here's Chewbacca. I love this stuff b/c it doesn't have the Dream Theater vocalist.

15. Led Zeppelin

ever since I first discovered music.


Without Led Zeppelin I never would have been interested enough in music to discover all the other wonderful bands and styles of music that I love so much today.

20. Jackson Browne. Because he thinks like this...



There's never any lack of thinking or feeling in his songs, and it's said and played so well.

2nd - Bob Dylan
3rd - Moody Blues

22. Easy one: Leo Kottke



I heard his "Armadillo" album at 19, and it changed my outlook on music forever. I spent thousands
of hours trying to figure out how he did what he did, and went out to Escondido, California, to meet
the guy who made his guitars at the time, and get him to make me some as well. I've still never met
Leo, but Božo Podunavac has been a friend for 30 years now.

What Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix have been to the electric 6 string guitar, Leo Kottke is to the
acoustic 12 string guitar.

26. I went to a workshop he put on back in about 1975 or so.

Four hours of the best time of my guitar playing life.

He's a genuinely nice, humble brilliant musician.

31. I would have given a LOT to have been able to do that

Especially in 1975, as I might have turned out to be a much better guitarist because of it. I was
playing old Guilds back then (still have 2 mid-sixties vintage 212 XL guitars). I did some touring
anyway, but was always in awe of Kottke. Still am, really.

Not a choice I'm prepared to make.
