Ya gotta love the Bladerunner soundtrack.
Not just Blade Runner and Chariots of Fire -- I love everything he does. I'm working on the "Needles & Bones" section of Heaven and Hell, just because I love his music so much. (It's the one that sounds like one of Tchaikovsky's "Danses caractéristiques".) I even love his albums The City and Direct.
DJ Lady Miss Kier
.... I have a new found respect and admiration for you.
The last name I expected to see in this thread... bad-@$$.
Flecktones / Bela Fleck
Dave Weckl Band
There have to be more but I'm drawing blanks.
I could happily listen to nothing but Sade for the rest of my life.
She was/is the sh!t. Dew Drops In The Garden is a masterpiece.
Top 5 non-guitarist influences:
Criminally underrated. Duran Duran was the sound of the early 80s and he was the heart of it.
Ok more -
Seals and Crofts
David Lee Roth
Etc etc etc
You can’t compartmentalise me, I won’t conform, you can’t make me!!
I love this board. Seriously.
Also, after racking my brain, I have to give a special shout-out to Chester Thompson, as well as Omar Hakim. There are a lot of killer pocket drummers but these guys really opened my eyes in incomparable ways when it come to structure and dynamics. I've always been a sort-of-drummer on the side (read: poseur... but I did take lessons from a killer player in Austin who'd studied extensively with Kenny Aronoff, so I gave it a valiant effort).
Great, now I have list envy.
Brilliant choice, sir.
I caught an interview with Peter Cox and Richard Drummie - Go West, on BBC Radio 2 today. I always found Peter’s vocals an influence growing up. They attributed their influences as Motown and ‘70s soul, also an influence to me.
In the early ‘90s I discovered an album by Little Feat - Feats don’t fail me now. Lowell George’s vocal and the slide guitar just did it for me. “Fat man in the bath tub” such a good song.
So great to see them still gigging!
I can’t pick 5, so I guess I’ve failed. Story of my life, but I’m ok with it!!
Steeley Dan - Live in America
Donald Fagen - Nightfly
Two albums that I listen to regularly!
Absolutely! He's got one of Bernard Edwards' basses too.
