Influences or heros?

Influences:
Marc Ford
Warren Haynes

Heros:
Jimmy Page
Jimi Hendrix

I only differentiate because I have no relevant context in my life to ever even try to play like Page or Hendrix, but they're the two top guys who I air-guitar'd to when I was growing up.
If I played like those guys, my friends would be like "What are you doing?", sorta like when Marty McFly launched into the end of Johnny B Goode.

Marc and Warren's stuff is right in my wheelhouse.
Possibly worth noting that Marc said in an interview that Hendrix was his original hero.

For their Rock and Blues contribution, in the changing world of the 60's and 70's,
Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix.
These two sold a lot of electric guitars.
And changed the way people played guitar.

If there was a third one to name, Eddie Van Halen (which I never was a fan of).
Because he too changed the way people played.

Most other guitar greats walked in their paths.

Mark Knopfler

Roddy Frame

(Have to mention Chuck B, as previously stated, the original guitar hero).

Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser

David Gilmour
my mom was nextdoor neighbors with the Roeser family growing up on Long Island. She was his baby sitter. I haven't seen him in years but I've gone to a few shows where I've gotten to hang backstage. One show we went out to dinner before walking to the show. Another time was at an arena where I waited outside to say hello when he arrived at the artist loading area and he had me just go in with him and arranged all access passes. That was really cool getting to experience an arena show from up on the stage off to the side. Really nice man.

For me, Duane Allman and Don Felder are the ones I enjoy listening to the most. Their playing always brings a smile to me.

As far as actually influencing my style of playing, it would be Walsh and Paul Cotton (Poco). I really enjoy listening to them. And when I am just messing around on guitar, I find I am more likely to play something n their musical vein.

I used to say I would get three cats and name them:

Jimi
Eric
Angus

Pretty accurate, though I probably prefer Jeff Beck to EC, I copy EC more.

Could just as easily be

Ron Asheton
James Williamson

or

Wayne Kramer
Fred Sonic Smith

or

Johnny Thunders
Cheetah Chrome

or

Mick Ronson
Ariel Bender

or

Marc Bolan
Dave Hill

or

Peter Green
Leigh Stephens

or

Tony Iommi
Daniel Ash

and so on....

:p
