    Plain chocolate? I don't eat much ice cream, but when I do I like some chunky stuff in it like brownie bits or broken up chocolate covered waffle cone pieces.

    Yeah, Lars is a bit of a clod. I don't think he plays up to the level of the rest of the band. I would have to include Bonham.

    And I was a big EVH fan in high school but you can't leave out Jimi. Hendrix just played with a lot more melody and feeling than those other guys.

    Tons of amazing rock musicians out there.

    Oh I've been around here, just lurking, due to my reputation. Best way to stay out of a fight is not to get in one in the first place. And I've been working full time for the last few years, it keeps me quite busy.

    Ditto that, rad guy.
    I'll give friends to casual acquaintances who play, or are into bass and think they know music and all the bass greats but have never heard of Watt a copy of "Ragin Full On" by firehose and without fail they are always blown away.

    I was on a road trip and went out to eat in the little town on the entrance to Zion and who's playing in this little podunk restuarant but Perry Ferrell with Mike Watt and I guess what Hellride was. Being a huge Watt fan from Minutemen on, I couldn't beleive it! Long storey short my girlfriend and I end up drinking wine with them in the Zion lodge untill 3 AM. When I woke up in the morning it took a while to register that the previous night had really happened. Super nice guy.

    Drummer, most are going to miss this one: Jimmy Chamberlain from the smashing pumpkins! Runner up: Coheed & Cambria, many roster changes. I think they keep internally combust.

    Bassist: Mike Anthony. I'd thought I would never say this being a VH fanatic. ChickenFoot is pretty good, it's his harmonies and warm bass tone.

    Vocals: Serj Tankian

    Guitarist: funny I used to play tons in my formative years, I cannot think of one that inspires me. George Lynch is still amazing, Ed Van Halen too.

    Just like with music, so many good choices it astounding. It's more like what you're in the mood for, or what you're partial to because of what your exposure is limited to. Travel the globe and you find all sortsa chocolate ice cream varieties that blow your mind wow.

    As an example, the Spanish seem to have connection to the guitar. A certain type of music might not be your thing, but when you see talent you can't help but be in awe.

    One of my faves, too. There's a lot going on in there when he plays, some of it very subtle.

    They are back together and touring now.

    Mars Volta and Antemasque were more my flavor. Mars Volta being one of the best shows I've ever seen. The intensity and duration they plat at is athletic.

    Wonder if they will come to the east coast? I'll have to research it.

    On a related note, I enjoyed Sparta.

    old school metalhead/hardcore/punk guy here. Also into jazz and classical. I am a percussion instructor/band director for my 9-5. IOahve played drums for 40+ years and bass guitar for 35+ years

    There is never any "best", only personal favorites:
    These have been the most influential to the formation of my career:

    1. Drummers: Gene Krupa; Neal Peart; Nico McBrain; Mark Zonder; Chad Smith; Dave Lombardo; Joe Morello;

    2. Bass: Geddy Lee; Steve Harris; Sting; Joey Vera; Esperanza Spaulding; Mike Dean; Mike Watt; Les Claypool; Eddie Jackson; Eugene Wright; John Taylor; Chuck Panozzo

    3. Guitar: Dave Murray & Adrian Smith; Chris DeGarmo and Michael Wilton; Randy Rhoades; John Fruisciante; Jim Matheos and Frank Aresti; Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King; Andy Summers; James Young and Tommy Shaw

    4. Singers: Ian MacKaye; Geoff Tate; Ray Alder; Bruce Dickenson; Sebastian Bach; Tom Araya; Chuck Billy; Mike Muir;

    I am in the minority who does not believe that Bonham is a great drummer...he was adequate at best. I am also usually underwhelmed by Buddy Rich....
