Ooops! Am I? :-)

I was going to mention Yngwie Malmsteen but for some reason I crossed his name with Ritchie's.

First thought is Eric Clapton, with Johnny Clegg a close second.

Jaco Pastorius. He's from my hometown. Every older drummer I know has a Jaco story. My keyboardist's dad studied with him. My uncles have seen him live, my boss met him backstage after a Weather Report show, my mom has seen him a few times. There's just so much about Jaco's playing and character (rowdy and drug influenced as it may be) are just something I love so much about him.

Jaco is the reason I'm starting to play bass now.

I'm surprised I only saw Frusciante, Mike Patton, and the Mars Volta guys on this list once (each in different replies, too)!

Here are mine:

Sade (and her band)
John Frusciante
Omar Rodriguez-Lopez
Cedric Bixler-Zavala
Dustin Kensrue/Teppei Teranishi/Ed Breckenridge
All of Radiohead
this list could go on

I'd have to say Stevie Wonder, with Ray Charles a close second...

... can you tell I'm a Detroiter, with southern roots? :D

Devin Townsend, previously of Strapping Young Lad, The Devin Townsend Band, and now of the Devin Townsend Project (which has one of the best band logos I've ever seen)
