Who or what musician do you respect the most?

I respect Dave Mustaine the most even though he was a really big douchebag for the most part of his musical career.

He was part of the original Metallica line up and made the blueprint for thrash metal along with other bands.

He made another band though for the wrong reasons at first(to get revenge) but his will to just get up from anything was really admirable and earned my respect. Not to mention he made his own music by himself and allied himself with some of the best guitarists (Chris Poland, Marty Friedman to name a few).

I don't feel that there is one particular musician who I respect considerably more than every other musician to say I respect "him/her" "the most!". Respect isnt a competition. This thread is whatever.

James Hetfield

He's one of the best guitarists I can think of, a great vocalist, a talented songwriter and he plays the drums as well. He seems really cool and he has a sense of humor.

Frank zappa. Because he really knew his shit when it came to music, and also because he had a sense of humor so he never took himself too seriously.
And also, Roger Waters, because Pink Floyd.

Reported? Why? I don't see this as any problematic, advertising, or anything that has to be reported...

OT: I would say Paul Gilbert, due to him being the apperantly humble man he is. In a band sense, I would actually say Metallica. Everyone knows what Metallica is, even if one hasn't listened to any of their songs. That in itself is something to be respected.

He is a great guitarist but also a money hoar. And you're getting this from a pretty big G'n'R and Slash fan.

Franz Lizst, he was the first real modern style celebrity musician, he had Lizst Mania before Elvis or The Beatles' fathers we're even born. Women would collect his trash and broken strings. And of course there's his music too. . .

Well there must be someone who you respect the most in your life...like someone you look up to... That's why I said Who or What, it can be that struggling musician round the corner or someone famous just because.

Frank Zappa, for his immense skill with composing and songwriting, and humor. Also, Dick Dale for his creativeness, speed, and skill.

I thought you were trolling for a split second, then I remembered that he did make music before he started acting.

probably respect my mother the most, but she is my mother, not a musician. There is not one musician I can say I respect more than any other musician.

Me wants to know how its cool to face palm someone's opinion on who they respect but you keep doing what you gotta do you 'lil jam session freak...

"OT" John Cage. He single handedly changed my perception on what music is.

Although I've got to agree with Msword, it's tough coming up with just one person who comes out on top, but there are so many different reasons to pick somebody.. For example where would we be without Les Paul? The electric guitar simply wouldn't exist and recording would be years behind where it is today..

I'd say Paul Gilbert.
Very humble man, and his writing/technical ability is brilliant.


Seconded. Not a huge fan but he is a very inspirational man.

Jason Becker for dickslapping ALS in the face and not giving up. (given 3 years to live in the 90's? He's still alive. Close to completely paralyzed? No problem, still writing music).

Mick Mars for close to the same reason. Dude can barely walk, still tours, still making music (although with more modern bands).

Rudy Sarzo for playing with a ton of different bands that were huge, but no one would recognize him. ("Rudy Sarzo? Who's that?" "The bassist for Ozzy, Blue Oyster Cult, Whitesnake, Dio, Quiet Riot, and Yngwie Malmsteen."). He's a good bassist too.

Prince for playing close to every f'cking instrument known to man, NOT charging ridiculous prices for concert tickets (only $25 for someone as big as him is pretty good), and being a brilliant composer, although very "prissy" with his music.

Paul Gilbert is awesome. He definately has a sense of humour with his music and his shreddy/rock instrumentals are, well fun I guess. He doesn't take himself too seriously.

ALEX ****ING WEBSTER

This man is one of the top metal bass players, uses his fingers for some crazy things and he useally just plays exactly what Pat O'brien and Rob play on guitar.
He is the man who has made by far the most songs, and not only making the music for the other guys as well, he does the lyrics and or vocal patterns himself too.
All that amazing bass skill, and writing aside, this man is smart as can be, and as humble and down to earth as anyone. Even if you don't like Death metal or Cannibal Corpse, I'm sure you could easily respect this beast of a man.


EDIT: Just some more evidence of his god like status. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOb6JSQd-Qw
