Styx at first, and then AC/DC, too. But mostly Styx.

I heard Freebird from Lynyrd Skynyrd when I was 12 years old and decided that the guitar was the coolest instrument ever.

AC/DC, first time I heard Thunderstruck, I came in my pants
I have a brand new MIM strat (I love it) and I'm planning to get an Epiphone SG by christmas so I can try to rock out like Angus cause my strat's a tad bit too heavy to be moving all around my living room, lol
But before that, there's one person NOBODY has mentioned:
Because seriously, what Dire Straights song doesn't make you want to jump up and down on your couch, singing along and scaring your cat

Dunno really, but the first bands I came to play songs from were Nirvana and Blink. The usual, I guess.

AC/DC, and GNR first got me interested in rock music. Now I really like the screamo bands, like Escape the Fate, and blessthefall.

I would have to say Synester Gates of Avenged Sevenfold inspired me to play guitar! Kinda strange i know...lol
Bands like Metallica and Trivium have shaped my style and my absolute idols are Randy Rhoads and Dimebag Darrell

Green Day and The Living End.

Metallica! I'd listen to Kirk back in the day and be like **** I wanna be able to do that. Plus Furgie had an influence, just cause I figured I have a better shot with girls that looked like that if I could play guitar.
