Gary Moore - Highly excellent ballad blues, power rock, extreme solo rock etc legend.

Ry Cooder - Slide blues? He's the man, fucking brilliant stuff, also he can play some of that neoclassical spanishy stuff, ever watched crossroads? If you haven't I highly reccomend it just for the head cuttin' duel at the end.

Chuck Berry - I love his stuff because it's so typically bluesy, he influenced a lot of the music that came out in the 50's and 60's. Gotta respect him, and also he came up with 'cruisin'

Hard to say...I'm no longer a musical fan in the sense of worshipping musicians on their talents, more on what their music does for me....

Love the early Hendrix sound (before he killed it with some shitty effects), fender strats and marshall amps are a winning combo....

Quite like some Beatles stuff (probably George Harrison) for tone, really crunchy naturally distorted sound, and love the 12 strings on the likes of day tripper etc.

Trever Keith from Face To Face, whilst not being the most advanced player, has a great tone and good ideas, fuller sound with a Les Paul and the nice Top Hat King Royale amp.....never distorts past 4 and gets a nice cutting clean old pure tube driven sound

Brian Baker from Dag Nasty (and later Bad Religion) is probably my "fave" guitarist I can think of.....love his style, lots of open notes or repeating patterns with one note changing...isn't afraid to wack in the old 12 string, or some nice old sounding clean sounds (gretsch)....my guitar playing comes from this guy! (as Does Billie Joe, who mine first came from)

Ian MacKaye and Guy Piccioto have got some cool stuff going on aswell....nice tones too

Pete Townshend (early who days) aswell...again good tones (strat and marshall, ricky and vox, can't say much for the sg and hiwatt, his sound got real shit from woodstock onwards....)

Were not comparing E106 to Slayer. Its just a tongue in cheek in joke between us. I just feel that a band like Slayer, who are very good at what they do have solos that are not a patch on Dimebag or Mustaine etc.

Us original , em, true, dont know what that has to do with Slayer solos though. Im off to make a band which sounds like Tom Waits meets Kermit the frog meets jungle music with jazz interludes, just so it sounds "original " for you.:finger:
