Since were on favorites, my favorite is Kurt cobain, for the pure emotion in the playing and the amazing pop hooks injected into such raw punk, every song is a memorable riff.


Hells yeah! As a non-musician I would also go for feel and my emotional connection to hard rock as a youth in the late 70's: Angus Young (not the most technically gifted-but the boy can throw down) and Jimmy Page.

Neil young was definitely the godfather of grunge, attitude is big there and the emotional connection to the music. I've seen him a couple times (he's technically local to me) and his live material is just so intense

Another good one from that era is Jerry Cantrell, simple bluesy hard rock but the melodies and stuff are just so heartfelt

Agreed on ol angus, that man could throw down, there's a reason why ac/dc is the best known hard rock all over the world

If you're a fan of Prog or Rock/Jazz hybrids, definitely worth checking out.

I've actually taken lessons from Bryan Beller.  Not that I'm name dropping or anything...

Jerry Cantrell is one of my favorite guitarist…I love the sound of the hardcore grunge he creates.

I saw AIC twice, once with Layne Staley, and once with their new vocalist William DuVall, which too my surprise was a great choice for the band.

Very cool actually. He comes across on stage as a nice guy who might have a good but sarcastic sense of humor. I like his solo stuff too.

Just to be clear- he wouldn't recognize me if he tripped over me, but I did take 2 clinics and a private lesson.

 

He's actually fairly humble and funny.  Makes fun of 'rock stars' a lot.  And all of his stuff is killer.  Definitely Grado-friendly

Last year in college for me-"Man in the Box" yo!

 

So many people across genres like Alice in Chains...my wife even-and believe me-that's saying something.

 

They just somehow bridged the gap between grunge/hard rock/metal and alternative. So much love for that band. I think of all the newmetal wannabees that copied Stanely's vocal style.

AIC is my favorite band from back in the 90's, nobody sounds like them although they have tried.

Mad Seasons "Above" Cd with Layne Staley on vocals is also very good.

I wasn't that into AIC.  For me, it was Soundgarden.

Another excellent band!

Chris Cornell's voice is amazing! Considered to be one, if not, the best vocalist from that time period/genre.

Audioslave is also another excellent band thanks to Chris/Morello and the rest of the band!

 Are you familiar with the album "SAP" from AIC?

If not, check it out, nice acoustics.

Man, they got so boring after 'Vitology'.  By that time, I moved on to Kyuss and Stoner/Doom.  PJ just couldn't keep up!

 

BTW, I do consider the 225i's to be outstanding Stoner/Doom cans.

That's right. Tom Morello is kind of amazing. That first Rage album is hard to beat.

 

I've always thought (I'll take Dio out of the picture) that Chris Cornell was the best rock signer since Robert Plant from "the heavy rock era" as they like to say.

 

This ain't opera, but I love his wail on this classic from Badmotorfinger (one of my favorite albums-I think just hit the 20 year mark).

 

I don't think he can quite hit those high notes anymore :smile_phones:
