Paul Kossoff
Brian May

Stevie Ray Vaughan

I’m struggling to omit one of those, but Nuno definitely sits on a par with a few of those guys. Hmmmm

Slash
Zakk Wylde
Gary Moore
EVH
Clapton

Generally if I can’t think of anything to put on the stereo it will be something from them, however with Spotify streaming there’s no shortage of other options.

Ironically he’s the player that comes through most in my playing, but yeah out of the five he would likely be the one to be dropped!

True, I started with 5 but grew to eight and my list would grow again seeing some of the selections here. You can add Rory to my list for example.

Yep 5 is just too hard, for an all time thing, I'm mostly playing bass at the moment and my influences are.... fuck knows.

And I'll play.
Jimi Hendrix
Rory Gallagher
Billy Gibbons
Lightning Hopkins
Muddy Waters
Muddy worked his way into things I do somehow by osmosis most probably from the upper 3 listed.
Every dog has it's day and there's been times I've heard some of you play and that has inspired me too.
Sometimes a riff or a sound will pop from the radio just for a moment from someone I've never known and sometimes one I've forgotten.
Most of all I want to be me.
