Re: What NON-Drummers have inspired you?
I started playing saxophone a 9 yo. My main inspiration back then was Davis Sanborn. I got to know the sound of Marcus and Steve really well then, too.
I like a lot of singers, but the main ones would have to be Joni Mitchell, Al Jarreau and also Peter Gabriel.
I am am only an electric guitar player and I've listened to them all and had many favourites, but these days, to degree I listen to guitar music at all it's Mike Landau all the way.
Martin Luther King
There's also no way to get away from Star Trek, Star Wars and Clint Eastwood.
I like Jazz-rock, it both swings and rocks.
