Favorite guitarists :
I've always admired the guitarists who had a certain "feel" in their play, such as Slash, Jimmy Page and Steve Vai, who play emotionally rather than speedy.
Don't get me wrong, i admire fastplaying guitarists such as Eddie Van Halen or Randy Rhodes, but they haven't the same "feel" in their playing
Favorite books :
I like to read biographies of famous people.
The main reason is not that i want to spy on their private lives, but more that i want to hear what people have experienced in their lives and are willing to share their advices with "the average Joe"
