    One of my absolute favorites of all time Frank Zappa. Brilliant man and musical genius. And in my opinion the most underrated guitarist ever, no one ever mentions him when we talk about brilliant guitar playing!

    Also another odd man, Captain Beefheart. Anyone got some love for him!?

    Yes, Edge Of Sanity. The first Crimson blows the second one away. EoS were nothing revolutionary except doing a single track conceptual death metal album I guess. Ha ha but he rules and vocals both clean and growling are incredible.

    I did hear that "Crimson I" was much better. I'll have to check it out. I'm more a fan of his vocals than any one band he's played in. Dan Swano could sing the phone book and I'd like it, ha

    The only Swanö you need, as far as I am concerned, is his "Moontower" soloalbum.

    Great album, but far from the only mandatory Swano purchase. His Odyssey EP is another favorite of mine. You can see where the Nightingale sound came from in that one.

    Well I put it wrong I think. I actually own pretty much every album Swanö has ever participated on haha. But Moontower is my number one!
