I think I wrote better songs when I was using acid.

My list has all the usual suspects on it: Lennon, Hendrix, Dylan, etc. Sting, Elvis Costello (saw them on the same bill last year at the beach - awsome!), David Byrne, Bowie...

Did Kurt Cobain get a mention yet? That man was a genius.

Alice in Chains > Soundgarden and Pearl Jam > Nirvana

No. I like them, but no. I might've given you Stone Temple Pilots, though.

You know who else I'd list? Frank Black. There's a reason The Pixies are on every artist's influence list.

A couple more that I'd call fringe musical geniuses, whatever that means....

Kate Bush

Donald Fagan -sorry Dickie :)

John McLaughlin

Andy Partridge

Felix Pappalardi

Todd Rundgren

Jean Luc-Ponty

I'm an XTC fan, too. They got Todd to produce what I think is their best album: Skylarking (minus Dear God, which tends to grate on me). Andy and Todd couldn't stand each other by the time the record was done, though. Shame. I'd've loved to hear what else they could've put together.

Nice. How the **** did I not have him on my list. Pixies are one of my top 10 favorite bands.

Slats you are gaining points my man. I wasnt sure about you for a little while.

The Pixies are one of those rare bands that I can listen to their entire catalog without getting sick of them. I can do the same thing with the Talking Heads up until about halfway thru Little Creatures. True Stories was a little weak, and I'm not a fan of Naked. But those first five albums are awesome!
