Favorite bands :
I guess I've got to compress this list, (pun not intended toward the gear lovers)
Red Hot Chili Peppers
(Early) Green Day (seriously everything after Warning just started going down hill)
Favorite guitarists :
Favorite bassists :
Assuming that you read my screen name I'm a bassist. But I also play guitar (but that sounds like a dying cat, kinda like vocals in screamo ) I'm a fan of those smooth and funky bass lines. Jazz and Funk are my favorite genres, but rock and punk never hurt anybody (ok in some cases it might have). When it comes to metal, I don't listen to much else but Thrash and somewhat progressive metal (is Tool really considered progressive metal?).
