Favorite bands :
I say, there are styles. In every style you can make something that's called music, and some which are not. Only you might have not yet heard the good stuff in that. Bands: e.g.: CoB, Eleven Hold, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth, Deep Purple, Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Kraftwerk, Agalloch, Ska-P, ...
Favorite guitarists :
Alexi Laiho, Steve Vai, John Petrucci, Joe Satriani, Kirk Hammett, Adrian Smith, Eric Clapton, Hughie Thomasson (R.I.P. :( ), Richie Blackmore, ... just too many!
Favorite bassists :
Billy Sheenan, Shavo Odadijan, Tom Araya, Steve Harris, Cliff Burton, Lemmy Kilmister
Favorite books :
Just too many ... Bradbury's 451 Fahrenheit, Orwell's 1984, Huxley's Brave New World, Iacocca's Manager's life, P.Howard's books, R.A. Salvatore's book, Frank Herbert's Dune, ... but the absolute fav: Isaac Asimov.
Favorite tv :
I don't watch that grey, "stupid" box.
Circa 3 years ago, I've moved to my new room. In this room all the walls are yellow, and my mother wanted to somehow decorate it. She had an idea, and put my dad's 40 years old sunburst guitar in the corner (matched in color), with a plant in front of it, like a still-life composition... That was the beginning of my guitar career ...
