    hoppus and delonge are awesome. I think they have hidden messages in thier music cuz for sum reason i really really like them. also the bassist from the living end is awesome. He is a really really technically talented bassist. Any one who can play amazing slap and pop solos with an upright then swing the thing around is allrigh in my book.

    That's funny, I could have sworn the thread title said "musicians"....hmmm.

    Anyway mine is without a doubt Paul McCartney. Simply the greatest all-round musician ever.
     
  9. paul mccartney is amazing, as is his former bandmate george harrison, but my favorite muscian is either miles davis or ben folds. davis is definately the more innovative, but folds music is just fun and interesting.
     
  10. I like Neil Young, he's my favourite musician ever. I especially like his early stuff with Buffalo Springfield, and with Crazy Horse. I also like how he seems to change styles so much, from kinda folky country rock, to harder rock, to that weird rockabilly stuff in the early 80's, to grunge, to whatever he's doing now.

    Miles Davis is definitely up there. I also have a lot of respect for Prince. And favorite drummer is Carter Beauford, with Buddy Rich a close second.
     
  15. My props go to Mozart, his music is timeless and will still be played when our great, great, great, grandchildren are around. He is the ultimate! Whether you like his music or not, you have to acknowledge his greatness as a prodigy and as a musician.
    As far as a bassist, my vote would have to go to Michael Manring. His compositions are really innovative, emotional, and intelligent.

    Miles Davis, hands down. He's influenced my writting and soloing style more then any other musician I've ever listened to (and that includes Jaco). Also, I can't get over the fact that he died on my 11th birthday. Creeps me out to no end.

    My favorite musicians would have to be Mikey Weiss, Kurt Cobain, Beck, and Krist Novelisect (I'm pretty sure I butchered Krist's name, but I can't spell....).
