I see a lot of familiar names here

#13 Post by blsabob » Wed Mar 02, 2005 3:23 pm

and pretty much I agree with most of them, so I won't bother to repeat them

But I would like to add a name that often gets overlooked in the Guitar Hero catagory because he doesn't play the traditional Guitar Hero type music:

:!: Brian Setzer

As fir bass player, how is it that everyone forgot"

:mrgreen: Les Claypool

Kudos to the guy who mentioned Buckethead. He's the guy I'd most like to see as first up on the next North American G3 Tour.
