Influential is what Gilmour is to many.
I can’t agree with the poll choices
Iommi In my mind influenced quite a few musicians...
I agree. Maybe even more we could list. If you have a different opinion please share, my intent isn’t to insist my 3 are the only ones, my intent is to see what others think and in a sense add a bit of a challenge limiting choices to just 3. I must have changed my mind 10 times before posting!
I agree with 1 and 3....but 2....c'mon, wasn't he just a studio musician????
And if it wasn't for that little band that Derek Leckenby was in....he wouldn't have gotten the gig as a session player on those Herman's Hermits recordings.....
Of course, I'm jesting.....but on a more serious note.... from what I've heard Derek was a very good guitar player....but I guess Page might have "been just a little bit better"....
As an aside and nothing to do with this thread.....my mother thought Peter Noone was sooooo cute......
You’re choices in the poll seem to suggest otherwise...I couldn’t vote!
...and to make this thread the most fun, I’d suggest anyone who adds someone must take someone off the list. You should have to go through the same pain Antstrat and I went through to play haha
I can't help being reminded of that Beato video about the most influential band from the 60s. Thus I'd exchange Hendricks for Beck.
The poll questions were intentionally satirical in regards to recent threads
I’m going to throw Steve Howe in to the mix . Probably not top three but definitely deserves honorary mention .
Without a doubt.
I agree with your three Ant, kinda shocked you left Ebidis off the list.
So in keeping with the ever changing guidelines
I’ll add Tony and remove Eric from the list .
Whoa...wait, I didn’t mean anyone could take off Hendrix!
"Influential" is an intersubjective thing. Therefore practically pointless as far as arguments go.
Phenomenologically, it could probably be proven that Clapton and perhaps Page fit under the Hendrix umbrella. Especially in the 70s, the music scene exploded and guitar playing became much more eclectic, I think we can find a couple of other highly influential players of a different ilk than just these blues players. Perhaps Al Di Meola, Chick Correa, Eddie Hazel, Jeff Beck, Eddie van Halen, etc. I kinda think that van Halen is undeniable, frankly, even though I didn't listen to his stuff, culturally he's obviously as big as it gets and as talented too.
For me personally, it would be George Harrison and Jimmy Page. Not sure who after that. I love Hendrix to death, but I can't say I was ever under his influence until later in life, much like Beck and the like. Whereas George and Jimmy had me under their spell before I got into playing and, definitively, were both 100% a part of why I started playing in the first place.
His check bounced.
I'd agree with the three.
I agree with that too
Edward has been quoted in several guitar magazines as saying that Clapton was a huge influence on him.
