bands that influenced you

Post by ajax »

i don't think anyone has done this post so here goes................
what bands or singers influenced you and why
for me it was the jam ,paul weller used to right songs about living in late 70's early 80's britain and all though i listened i wasn't sure if he was speaking the truth or just making it all up,but boy with songs like when your young,billy hunt,town called malice,in the city,a-bomb in wardour street and the sublime thats entertainment i realised as i progressed through my teens that the guy was spot on.if you've never listened to the jam then go get a copy of their greatest hits and also if you can get hold of a copy try and have a listen to thier classic album ALL MOD CONS,this album was wrote around late 1979 early 1980 and the songs on it still stand up today.
THANKS PAUL WELLER FOR UNDERSTANDING ALL THAT TEENAGE ANGST AND HELPING ME THROUGH THE TEEN YEARS
THE ORIGINAL AJAX (AND STILL THE BEST)

The band that influences me (currently) is Marilyn Manson! I am still pretty young, and I have a long time to allow them to influence me even more. Just hopefully it doesn't get too out of control. But I am not gonna allow myself to become a goth, though, because I don't consider Manson himself to be gothic.

KISS is the best!  Always.  Ace Frehley is the best lead guitarist ever!  Has anyone so successfully mixed blues and metal?  I think not.  I can remember air-guitaring to Destroyer when I was like 7 or 8.  My concerts rocked!!  :D
I'm actually going to their ALIVE 35 tour in July.  Tics cost me $276 CDN for two of them.  But I don't care.  I wish Ace and Peter were still with them, but it's still gonna be awesome!

Of course The Beatles and Metallica are in influence mix, too.  :twisted:
