I don't recommend passive pickups for any kind of blues tone. Ideally, you'd want a passive pickup with a reasonably low level of output.

Motley Crue, Ratt, Dokken, Winger, Damn Yankees, etc. souns like you like a lotta hair metal.


http://www.pandora.com is a good place for this too

Actually, if you want a great combination of both guitar skills and musicianship, then I strongly recommend listening to some Tony Macalpine.

Agreed. Just because he likes gnr doesnt mean he'll like VR. GNR is my favorite band and I only moderately like VR. THere styles are so different. VR has a grunge singer, and they even downtuned for him.

grunge = 90's
hair metal (what he likes) = 80's.
VR = post grunge 00's nonsense that tried to fuse above genres. and worked, to a degree

but yeah, have you tried motley crue, kiss, iron maiden, or dokken?

EDIT: black sabbath as well.

there's this band called Frost*, they're really really good.
they're a sort of neo-prog.
ive given like 100 people their first cd and they all loved it.
they have two:
Milliontown
Experiments In Mass Appeal

Sometimes they're confused with the really sucky 60's pop band. dont get confused on that one.
just give it a try.

the first one is milliontown, the second is experiments. they have NO OTHER STUFF. PLEASE DONT GET CONFUSED.
