For me they were Jesus Christ, My Grandpa and Grandma. Who were you yours?
Good Day Major,
Same here, Dad and Grandfather. As men, and as Bassists.
Also, the astronauts (Gemini and Apollo). It was the times.
john edwards. (world record holder in the triple jump)
Their was also Captian Kirk, Spock and a few of the Parish Priest.
Dad, mom, God, Joe Namath, Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townshend
Bret Favre... Farve? i dunno. Stone Cold Steve Austin
Optimus Prime, Voltron, Macron 1, Lion-O, Brave-Star, the SWAT Kats (the Radical Squadron), and Robocop, Batman (60s version, go figure), Patrick McManus, Hank The Cow Dog, and basically any and all giant robots/transformers/aliens/superheroes.
And then right around age 9, Frank Herbert's Dune, and then around 10, George Carlin.
I'd like to think I turned out pretty okay. Who else asked "What would George Carlin and Prime do?" ...I think that probably explains a lot about me.
Mom, Dad, my former pipe major (of course I recently learned he's been having an affair with a piping student for six years), Captain Jean Luc Picard, Commander Benjamin Sisko (trek!!!!!), Victor Wooten (more for his way with people, though I do dig his stuff with Bela), Jaco (musically), etc etc.
Which in the end becomes everyone...
I always disliked my grandfather when I was growing up. After he died last year, I've grown to appreciate him as who my role model should've been. He taught me that farting is funny, urinating in public is OK if no one is looking, double dipping is Kosher*, cursing is an art and that taking naps RAWKS. The list is endless. Without him, I probably would've grown up into an overly serious person. Although I'm a firm believer in Nature over Nurture, the ironic part is that he became this way due to brain damage from years of alcoholism.
*He was Catholic, but I like this expression.
Me too. Never really had a grandfather, though.
I'm still growing up.
My father and maternal grandfather are my biggest role models. They appeal to me because they both found success after starting with very little.
I like you, you need to get a supporting membership so i read more of your posts
Yes i would think Jean Luc would be a good role model.
well The mars volta musically.
As far as living, not really sure.
