Im a fan of all types of rock and ive recently been getting into some grunge and modern rock and i want some suggestions for bands or albums to check out. Im not a fan of screamo metal or any really emo stuff but id like to find some modern rock bands that have great guitar work and play lengthy solos and have fairly technical songs. Bands im into already are:
Foo Fighters
Pearl Jam
Velvet Revolver
My Gear

1981 Gibson Les Paul Custom
Fender MIM Standard Strat

Cort Acoustic

Marshall JCM 2000 DSL 201

Dunlop Crybaby From Hell
Boss DD20 Giga Delay
Boss CE 2 Chorus
Brigade, Coheed & Cambria, The Exies, Fightstar, Chevelle, InMe, Muse.

You might like some of those.
Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, John Butler Trio, Muse, Faith No More, Tool.

Some of them sound good....but this thread will close soon.

Alter Bridge? If you haven't already heard them, judging by your list, you should. Oh and check out the Answer if you haven't already. And definitely try out Porcupine Tree, really awesome band.
