Your favourite musician/s

  spuds 13:03 17 Jul 07

Do you have a particular favourite musician, or a couple more of the new or old mould, who would be the top choice in your collection.

I have recently been checking through a new range of musicians or artists, with some surprising results. In particular I have been heading in the direction of people and music from the likes Tony Remy and Angelique Kidjo, and I would like to broaden my field on other peoples choices.

Matt Bellamy is mine. He is such a talented guy, plays piano, guitar and has a great voice. He is lead singer in the band Muse.

For pure talent on guitar it has to be Mark Tremonti though.

If it had not been for Ry Cooder and Julian Bream.

Nicky Hopkins as the non-classical Pianist of the last 50 years.

Jackcoms - Who are you referring to? Hendrix? BB King?

One of my other favourites is Eddie Van Halen, he doesn't even break a sweat when playing Eruption. Although Tremonti can play it one handed :)

Big Tom Morrelo fan too.

Oh yeah Jimmy Page too, how could I forget him.

Sorry Jackcoms, didn't see the EC at the bottom of your post.

Clapton is a great technical guitarist, not a huge fan of his music/playing style though.

Sorry for all the posts.

John Williams, Chet Atkins, Les Paul. Without Les Paul's contribution some previously posted would possibly not have an instrument.
