Hey Pit,

Essentially, I want to know of some famous guitarists who have also been known to DJ. I remember reading an interview on UG about someone who did, but can't remember who. But surely there is more.

Need quick answers as it's for a competition ending tomorrow


Cheers

Tommy Lee, the drummer from Motely Crue, DJs for various dubstep things...
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

'You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

Mani from Stone Roses does some DJ-ing I think
Two bands I'm obsessed about : Coheed and Cambria.

Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction also DJs, under the name DJ Peretz (his hebrew name)

Sir, the contents of my mouth just blew all over my keyboard, desk, and part of my monitor. For the record, it was slightly chewed Keebler cookies and coffee slurry.

Really?

I bet his parents were too drugged to care they named their son DJ, house music lovers pff.

He's the hero The Pit deserves but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. GbAdimDb5m7.

and your parents must be hipsters, because they gave you the most ironic name possible.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Some of the people listed here aren't actual DJs. Creating electronic music doesn't mean you are a DJ.

Some people use the word that way.

The problem is that the word "producer" means something outside of electronica that makes some uneasy to use the word producer with electronic artists.
