    Nowadays, it's probably Claypool for me - back when I was a metalhead I thought he was just all noise, but I have just recently come to hear his playing as just amazing.

    Also - Justin Chancellor of Tool is definitely the keeper of the Tone these days. Yow! (well, until tool went by the wayside or whatever)

    Then again, my inspirations of all time are Geddy Lee, Victor Wooten, etc. the usual suspects.
