Zakk Wylde oddly enough when I think about it.

Yeah, I like Knopfler too. His stuff on Moving Pictures was awesome… he definitely has his own style… like jazzy country folk … subtle and clean. Plus hes known to not use a pick, which is kind of cool.

I was debating J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr… but when I went to see him live in the early nienties my ears bled…so damn loud! so good!

Clapton was God before he got all mellow.
