Hey ladies (and Gents)

We always here about the male musicians who inspire people but I was just wondering if anyone had any female musicians who inspired them? Or even just women who you admire musically. Whether it was to play guitar, sing, songwrite whatever.

For me it would be

Stevie Nicks: her songwritting is so raw and emotional. She's been around forever and she's still going strong. When she sings it's just pure emotion; I still get goose bumps when I hear "Silver Springs" or "Landslide". Just an amazing talent.

Joan Jett: probably my favorite female guitarist. I've loved her since I was a kid. I can still remember doing air guitar to " I love Rock 'n' Roll" pretending to be Jett. I wanted to be in a rock band so bad....still do kind of....

Kim Deal: need I say more.

There's a lot of others, but mostly singers. I don't know very many female musicians who inspire me unfortunately :/

Nancy Wilson From the band Heart.

Not to Mention her sister Ann Wilson on Vocals.

If you've ever heard any of Heart's music you'll see that Nancy could just flat out Play.

The Intro to the song "Crazy on you" is well Crazy!

My Favorite Women Who Rock

Angela Gossow: Arch Enemy
Kate French: Vainglory
Simone Simmons: Epica
Tarja Turunen: Ex-Nightwish
Annete Olzen: Nightwish
Doro Pesch: Warlock/ Doro
Kimberly Goss: Singery
Floor Jansen: After Forever


These Musicians inspire me greatly, especially Gossow, Pesch, Turunen, Simmons, and Kate French, there vocals are amazing and there songwriting is top knotch, even though they are vocalists, they make me want to excel better at guitar, and music composing, and just music in general.

That's not Carola, that's Freestyle. If this is the song you mean; Vill ha dig i mörkret hos mig. Tiden den stannar när vi rör vid varann, å jag lättar jag svävar jag flyger fram, låt det aldrig ta slut.

haha, that came when I was a teenager and it was so popular.

I want you



And to stay on Rokchicks subject, I remember joan JetT aswell and that song rocked hard but I would say Lita Ford, especially for "Close my eyes forever", her voice is really strong there.

Lots,
but particularly
Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth) - lots of reasons including attitude.
Patti Smith - great song writer
Lydia Lunch - attitude
Diamanda de Galas - wonderful voice
Grace Slick (Jefferson Airplane era only though) - great voice and interesting song writing.
Patti Austen - again a great voice and versatile
Anita Baker - as above
Ella - repitition
Billie Holiday - rolleyes.gif everything she ever did but particularly the wake call of 'strange fruit'

Cheers,
Tony

I found an awesome woman guitarist 2 month ago, i think she s pretty good, her name is Katrina Johansson.
here s her descritpion: http://www.deanguitars.com/katrina_johansson.php

and you can listen some audio samples here : http://www.katrinaguitar.com/downloads.html she s really good!

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"
