    This is a bit of a spinoff of my thread in the JCC...

    Musicians come in all shapes and sizes, different styles, and overall genres. Again, this isn't a thread about the best musicians out there, but your favorites. This also doesn't just have to be refined to musical abilities, but personality and how well you relate to them, too.

    My most favorite musicians of all time would have to be Bono of U2. He's got a great voice, he's not a bad rythym player, and he also aims for world peace by having his own political views.

    Secondly I'd put John Mayer. I look up to him big time as a fellow guitarist and ever since I saw him live I've loved his music (being a guy, I'm somewhat of a wallflower in that crowd). He's really laid back, he likes Star Wars, and he's also a big ladies man.

    And lastly, I'd have to say Chris Martin of Coldplay. I don't know if you saw the Grammy Awards (2 years ago, I think) when Coldplay performed, but Chris Martin was totally into the rapture and beat when he played Clocks on the piano. He's deeply into his music and he's also a good guitarist. Coldplay also works for worldly funds, mainly

    Hmmm, well I've got to say Pete Townsend from The Who. That man's the best guitar player ever, and plus, you can't beat his theatrics on stage back in the 70s. Likewise of Keith Moon also of The Who. Dang good drummer, even if he had lost his mind... but still an awesome drummer. And for my thrid pick... I guess I'll say Brian May from Queen. I got to see him live once and he was awesome! Absolutely sithing awesome.

    Well, just my 2 cents/3 picks.

    Honorable mentions to John Entwhistle and anyone from the Sex Pistols.

    Your Three Most Favorite Musicians = very bad grammar.

    But my favorite musicians are...

    Kurt Cobain from Nirvana

    Billy Corgan from The Smashing Pumpkins

    Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio

    Yeah... That's pretty much it for me. But at a close fourth is Freddy Mercury from Queen
