    Rush, the "Hemispheres" album. I was into a lot of guitar-based music,
    so hearing the bass and drums on that album really got my interest. Plus,
    I had just stopped smoking, so I had a lot more disposable income to spend on gear!

    My younger brother. I started before him, but he was an absolute natural. I've taken lots of lessons - theory, technique, (blah,blah,blah) and only now can appreciate how far he got without any of it. He passed away in 2008. He always encouraged me to keep playing. Not a day goes by I don't think about being able to play with him again. A very good guitarist -

    The guitar players I was most inspired by to start playing guitar were James Murphy (Death/Obituary/Testament), Lars Johansson (Candlemass), Tommy Vetterli (Coroner), Yngwie Malmsteen, Andy LaRocque (King Diamond), Uli Jon Roth ...and later Steve Vai & Mattias Eklundh.

    As far as bands go I'd add Black Sabbath, Autopsy, Manilla Road, & Celtic Frost to that list above....my first band was a doom band.

    As for non-metal players.... Gary Moore, SRV & Buddy Guy...
    Revenge solves everything.

    If I had to put it on one guy, it would be Mr. Alex Lifeson.

    For me, the biggest inspiration to play music was to be able to express myself in ways my words cannot.
    Facebook - My facebook page
    Sundown Audio - My band
