    I also like some assorted other songs of the same kind of genres...I actually like most bands, but those are the ones I listen to the most.

    Stormbringer just earned another couple of cool points in my book by listing Cliff Burton as one of his favorite bassists...he's one of my biggest influences...along with Steve Harris...Cliff was a complete musician, and one of a kind...Dave Ellefson on bass and Marty Friedman on guitar were both nice mentions as well (both Megadeth veterans)...listen to Valley of Eternity on Marty Friedman's "Scenes"...the solo at the end in INSANE...

    Always nice to hear from people who share in some of the more obscure appreciations of music...

    I want to see if someone is going to be gutsy enough to admit they listen to Air Supply and Liberace...

    METAL!!!! that's my genre. Though specific subgenre? None really, I like heavy, death, thrash, speed, hard rock, classic rock... anything of and related to metal.

    Not to say I don't like anything else... I have a decent collection of punk (both sides, Offspring/Green Day and Antiflag/UKsubs), quite a few classical albums, some spoken word/comedy, and a good amount of world (celtic, norse folk, etc), Christian alternative. The one band that truly stands out for me is Dream Theater, I've seen em live the last two times they came through, I own all their full length albums and a DVD, and some music books. If only I had a 7-string to play that stuff.

    Though my favorite groups and CDs change almost weekly, here's what's been on my playlist lately:

    Carcass - Heartwork
    Petra - Petraphonics
    Pirates of the Carribean Soundtrack
    Debussy - compilation
    Dream Theater - every single album!
    Opeth - My Arms, Your Hearse

    .... and William Hung pwn3$ :)

    This guy has taste!! (seeing in flames in under a month :D )

    I listen to a lot of metal, mostly melodic/heavy metal. although i do go for a bit of rock and more mainstream metal.

    children of bodom
    dark tranquility
    devil driver
    iron maiden

    i also like a lot of unkown bands from around where i live, something about the 'undeerground' metal scene i just cant get away from :grinthumb

    In Flames

    They kick major @$$...I saw them with Slayer and Soulfly last time around, AWESOME show...I have to say, that the best "Metal" musicians and bands right now are coming our of places like Sweden, Denmark and that general area...the musicianship is just unbelievable...just check out Opeth if you don't agree...those guys are just machines when it comes to playing and putting on a live show...and the funny things is, most of them are kind of on the underground side of things, as opposed to the mainstream, which is good in a way...

    ...and as much as my musical taste has grown over the years, agressive, melodic and technical "metal" will always be the bottom line for me (I put "metal" in quotes, because that term has been so abused over the last 20 years - I mean, people call Motley Crue and Poison "metal")...anyway...UP THE IRONS and BANG THAT HEAD THAT DOESN'T BANG!!!!!

    that's my 2 cents...


    METAL RULES:grinthumb

    Dear god!
    We have FAR too many SoaD fans on this board! Where has all the decent music gone? You should all be shot the lot of you. :D

    Me, I am (mostly) a Prog Rock fan:

    Pink Floyd - Pulse Live on DVD - the best concert ever....full stop - they broke records for the number of lights used :D
    Genesis - The early stuff, up till about '78 when Hacket left - Suppers Ready live anyone - 3 12-string guitar intro....incredeble
    Yes - anything - its all so damned clever
    Dire Straits - "And its your face im looking for, on every street"
    Meat Loaf - The only original band i have seen live - everything else has been tribute bands.....
    Mike Oldfield - playing guitar and keyboard at the same time is quite impressive
    Queen - Seen the musical 'We will rock you' twice!
    Steel Eye Span - Has anyone heard of these guys? Take old folk songs + guitar and drums = Steel Eye Span
    Griffion - Steel Eye Span but different
    The Who - most of their stuff i quite good
    Metallica - in moderation some metallica is actually quite good
    Tenatious D - some of there stuff is good "Tribute" - some is just s**t "Karate" for example
    Robbie Williams - dont ask i dont no - i just like his music
    Bryan Adams - play when your depressed - it helps.....

    Thats most of my (varied) music tastes.....
    I worship the guitarists of old, the like of which is not seen today: Dave Gilmour, Steve Hacket, Brian May, Mark Knopfler etc all contending for the 'Best Guitarist Ever' award.

    BTW - i am 15, my brother/friends all listen to SoaD, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blink 182 and other such rubbish :D

    EDIT - Typos......

    Lol telling SoaD fans that we should be shot, then you claiming to like that list you produced - that stuff was all before your time.

    Perhaps you aren't but the only word that came to mind when I read that list then saw your age was: Poser

    Feeder and Tchaikovsky are favorite. I like everything apart from rap, despise rap, r & b, hiphop and anything similar, does my fricken head in.

    Rage Against The Machine are good too.
    so is Mozart, Beethoven bit crappy.

    Not to mention saying SoaD is rubbish, and saying that you like Robbie Williams...hmmmmmm...

    To each his own, that's all I can say about music. Other than that, if you are making a list of greatest guitarists of all time, you left out several major players:

    Steve Vai
    Joe Satrianni
    Yngwie Maalmsteen (Yes - he is a conceited jerk, but he can play his *** off and is a consumate classical musician)
    Alan Holdsworth
    Jimi Hendrix
    Django Reinhart
    Randy Rhoads
    John Petrucci

    And several hundred players who never made it big but will blow the doors off of 99% of the well known guitarists out there...

    My 2 cents

    Frank Sinatra, 2Pac, DJ Shadow, The Orb, Lenard Bernstein, The Black eye peas, Morcheeba, Marvin Gaye, Gus Gus, Pete Namlook, Richie Hawtin, Bill Laswell, Nusfrat Fateh Ali Khan, Django Reinhart, Last Poets, Eminem, Nora Jones, Higher Intelligence Agency, Irrestible Force, The Herbalizer, The Roots, Hendrix, Beck, DJ Shadow, Public Enemy, Bauhaus, Radio Head...

    I could go on. I have ~50gig of mp3's and over 400 CD's
