Who in the music world today do you think will have the same effect on people when they die like Elvis, John Lennon or Kurt Cobain did?

Honestly the only person I think would come close would be Bono... and i'm not really that keen on him.

Jurt Cobain? lol

Ermm Bono would probably best be known for his charity work. I honestly can't think of anyone... how scary is that?

Slash, Bono, uhh....
As much as I hate to say it, Gerard Way.
Maybe even Dave Matthews... Who knows.

Buckethead.
When you saw me sleeping
thought I was dreaming
of you...


I didn't tell you
That the only dream
Is Valium for me

Radiohead is one band that i think will still have a huge influence in the future, kind of the same way that Pink Floyd do now.

It's funny, but Gerard Way. His singing is so-so, but people would go ape**** if he died. I don't know why, though.
#12
damn, you fixed the Kurt thing. that would have brought a lot of flamming

uhmm... maybe Jack Johnson, Maynard James Keenan, Ozzy, Zakk Wylde, etc.

Not laughing at the Radiohead remark, at the Buckethead one. His ability on guitar alone is quite incredible, considering the many genres his spans. Half the time it seems he's creating his own.

Not to mention he's a beast on bass, banjo, and some piano. Someone who can branch numerous genres together, and make it sound pleasent and interesting, would be remembered in my eyes. Of course, not everyone would be remembered the same way by everyone. I doubt you've given him a nice hard listen.

+1, I agree with you there.
You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.

Well he is awesome at guitar, no question there, but all (pretty much) of his songs are boring, same riff repeated dozens of times then a solo then back to the riff. Surely he could do better? Just my honest opinion.

Buckethead I'll admit that I haven't listened to ALL of his songs, but I doubt i'd have the patience.

I meant songs in particular.

Any certain albums? Quite a few are better (in my opinion) that quite a few others. Suppose it depends on taste.

I don't think that the "mainstream" has enough attention span these days for it to matter much.

Certainly if someone (like Gerard Way) died I'm sure that it would have some sort of effect...

But it would be no where near defining an entire generation and then some like Hendrix, Cobain, Morrison... so on and so forth.

People forget so quickly these days.

But I know my life would be turned upside down if some of my idols died.

I don't recall, I have them on shuffle on winamp with all of my other music so I don't remember lol
#32
Zakk Wylde, Alexi Laiho, (sadly) that one guitarist from Avenged Sevenfold, Steve Vai, Yngwie. I bet they all have influences on future music.
#33
I'm gonna stick this one out there, James Hetfield, bash me if you want but this guy has influenced so many people, imcluding me. And hes not even dead yet!!
#35
Dave Grohl, Jack Black, Kyle Gass and Thom Yorke. Maynard gets an honourable mention.
