Favorite bands :
It's probably not seen as being "core" by some of the younger members on this site, but I actually don't mind most kinds of music.
I can go from listening to orchestral music to Meshuggah. From Linkin Park to Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Avril Lavigne to Aqua. Opera to Opeth. Behemoth to Lady Gaga. I do hate some songs but I'm not really that picky (unless it's something like Nicki Minaj or Dubstep).
Been playing guitar/bass since 2006. Although haven't touch a bass guitar since 2009 and I took a two year break off playing guitar (2009-2011). Just started playing again, hoping to become the next Buckethead.
