Most guitar players know Devin as the singer for Steve Vai on his Sex and Religion album, amazing voice, but he is also an amazing guitar player aslo!!! Some people get all the talent.... dry.gif but I got hair!!! tongue.gif Just kidding, I'd give all my hair for his singing, composing, and guitar skills.
He has lots of great, out there, relaxing solo stuff, and he also has a great Death metal band called Strapping Young Lad.
Amazing player, cool dude.

haha Devy is awesome! You should get his solo album called Ziltoid The Omniscient. Its some pretty wicked, spacey, funny death metal stuff. Its a concept album about Ziltoid and his search for the ultimate black coffee. laugh.gif

Devin Townsend is awesome. I love all his stuff and Strapping Young Lad especially. He has an amazing drummer in Gene Hoglan also. Unfortunately I look like Devin Townsend but don't sound like him lol. sad.gif

Yes, he is a great singer and also very good with the guitar. I hear a strong Vai's influence in his playing. His albums are very original and of high quality.
