As a former bass player, Steve Harris (Iron Maiden) has always been influence to me and a big part of my music passion. I did do some drumming so a combination of Phil Taylor (Ex-Motörhead) and Lars (Metallica)

For me it's Don Brewer as a drummer,Robin Trower/Stevie Ray Vaughn for guitars Steve Walsh for a singer Gary Thain for bass guitar(This is the classic rock/hard rock era) For now I'm mainly impressed with guitarists of the prog metal genre especially John Petrucci and Micheal Romero .....

I'm also a fan of progressive metal, mike Portnoy is a great drummer. Guitarist John and Mike R. are great guitarist! Progressive metal guitarist put so much strain on their fingers because of the length and complex of a song. Prog metal songs are usually over 7 minutes long.

I don't like short songs and never have,I like long songs with meat(There is a hour and half tune of Dream Theater instrumentals on youtube that blows my mind also note I hate James Labries voice.). I listen to many progressive metal bands but at times since I am a child of the 60's and 70's will dwell on the hard rock/metal that I grew up with at times as well,Metal forever for me.

I'm with you bro, I can't stand James voice either. I really can't stand whiny vocals, they irritate me lol. I tend to like the heavy songs with less vocals from dream theater.
