I am into so funk now, so could you suggest some bands similar to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Rage against the machine...

James Brown isn't modern rock, but he was big influence for John Frusciante of RHCP.
Fender American Deluxe V-Neck Strat
Laguna LG300CE Acoustic Electric
It's not modern but try Funkadelic. Songs like: super stupid, hit it and quit it, maggot brain are my favourites. Maggot Brain is like a 10 minute solo on guitar. They were a big influence on RHCP.
fredalba, chucklehead, dave matthews has some, the beat police, sly and the family stone, band of gypsies has some funky stuff too, like a few people said early incubus
(i forgot, sly isnt modern)
and then you got the classics like someone already said, james brown, george clinton, stevie wonder, prince
i probably forgot a few good bands, ill go look at my collection and post some more bands later

edit: groovezilla, nimbus 9(i think they have a myspace/purevolume), and some more older stuff is bootsy collins, earth wind and fire, and the ohio players which i think was another influence of the chili peppers

Any bands you're trying to copy/sound like?

Jimi Hendrix. I think he has a myspace where you can find some of his music, but I dunno.


well if he's on myspace he must be a loser.
Nowadays all the songs on the radio, all drive me crazy.

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.
I just got their album "Sailing the Seas of Cheese" today. Very odd with a couple of great songs but I mainly got it because Les Claypool is such a bitchin' bassist.
