I love lots of bands, one of the greatest concerts I ever went to has to be Pink Floyd's The Wall. There was a guy at work way back that turned me on to Pink Floyd and I listened to a double CD and loved every song on the list. Then add all the graphics and laser show with effects, it was a dream come true. But I've seen so many big stars and great bands, it's hard to pick just one. I loved the Eagles all three times, FleetWood Mac twice, I did have high hopes with David Cassidy and was a bit disappointed with his concert. Paul Revere and the Raiders gave a great concert. Crosby Stills and Nash, just way too many to list. I always love the guitarists most but enjoy the talent of the rest of the band.

Well, if you mean who inspires me NOW, I'd have to say nobody that hasn't inspired me before. And are still giving us inspiration. For instance.....

BOB DYLAN is still alive and kickin'.

So is ERIC CLAPTON...though he now says he's thinking of "retiring" due to neuropathy...

And JOHN McLAUGHLIN is starting up a new tour I hear.

Other than that, nobody under the age of 50 or 60. ;)

I go along with that, don't care for most of the younger folks music.

I really loved seeing the Eagles three times in concert. Joe Walsh inspired me but loved the entire band. Too. Bad about Glen Fry but we heard they were going to get his son to take his place and do another tour.

My list of musical inspirations is lengthy. All of them have several things in common, namely 1) a spirit of musical innovation and adventurousness 2) personal and musical integrity and 3) a spiritual consciousness that permeates the music. This doesn't have to be identified with a particular teaching or tradition, but is clearly present in elevating the consciousness of the listener.

In no particular order, I find abundant inspiration from:

The Beatles
Pete Seeger
Carlos Santana
Bob Marley
Third World
James Brown
Miles Davis
John Coltrane
Alice Coltrane
Pharoah Sanders
Duke Ellington
Ravi Shankar
G.S. Sachdev
Milton Nascimento
Robin Trower
Jimi Hendrix
The Sons of Champlin
Salif Keita
Airto Moreira
Flora Purim
Herbie Hancock
McCoy Tyner
George Duke
Zakir Hussain
John McLaughlin
Joni Mitchell
Maurice Ravel
Claude Debussy
Igor Stravinsky
Ludwig van Beethoven
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Gustav Mahler
Eddie Palmieri
Charles Lloyd
Prince

Here's Lemmy and mr. Phil Wizzö Campbell. I know a lot of people think Motorhead were all about volume, so maybe this will enlighten someone?

I actually prefer Phil's solo here to Slash's on the album. He's such an amazing guitarist.
