I'm also a Dream Theater guy. I've listened to some Opeth. I listen to a lot of different stuff, but mostly Symphony X, DT, Pain of Salvation, Pagan's Mind, and other similar stuff. There is another thread about Bands in the Metal/Rock section.

Listing all my favorite bands/artists would take a while, so I'm gonna go with the ones that I've listened to recently

Symphony X, Nightwish, Ride The Sky, Sonata Arctica, Edguy, Kamelot and Freedom Call.

As you can see, I've been in to progressive/power-metal lately.

What can I say. I saw the New Kids on the Block in concert. Twice. I am very ashamed. :eek:

You are a very twisted person.

Although, you don't like rap, so there must be some good left in you.

I'm all over the board:

Rush, Combichrist, Aiborforcen, Megadeth, Dream Theater, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Kansas - this list goes on and on from one extreme to the next.

Since I write mostly hardcore industrial wall, I tend to listen to more electronic stuff. As a bass player, when I'm practicing, I go for more jazzy stuff.

Too many to list, but I can do some highlights.

Classic/Prog Rock: The Who, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Yes, ELP, Led Zep, Marillion, Fleetwood Mac, Queen, Roxy Music, John Martyn.

Classical: Prokofiev (sp?), Rachmaninoff (God of Piano), Mussourgsky, Beethoven, Mahler, Khatchaturian, Ginastera, Tallis, Allegri, Vivaldi.

Jazz: Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, Wynton Marsalis, Humph, Ian Carr (as you can probably tell, I'm also a trumpeter), Dave Brubeck, Weather Report.

Others: Jean Michel Jarre, Terry Riley, Steve Reich, Ligeti.

Also, most musical and film soundtracks along with just about anything made in that golden age of synthesizers and awsome production that was the 80s.

And Dream Theater.

I could have made this a bit shorter by saying everything that isn't rap or RnB...

Nothing weird in your tastes - variety is key!!

Even though I play very heavy Industrial Wall - Rush is one of my favorites. In my free time, I pick up my bass and thump to Jazz (Bela Fleck and the Flecktones being my favorite).

Of course, a good dose of Megadeth, Iron Maiden and Slayer keeps my fingers nice and nimble :)
