    They're all nice. I like most of them and I think it's nice that there are so many great guitarists in different styles/genres. Gets you exposed to things you didn't even know it existed.

    Too many... A lot of them inspired me. Especially Criss Oliva from Savatage... Before he died in 1993. Chuck Schuldiner was a big one too... A lot of great guitarists out there.

    I actually don't own any Rusty Cooley yet, but Marcel talks about him all the time. But I think Michael Angelo's solo cd No Boundries is awesome despite the drum machine,have you heard it???
