Topic title says it all.

I have discovered tons of great artists and bands on GMC(thanks!), I'm gonna try to see if I remember all of them.

Stevie Ray Vaughan
Jefferson Airplane
Paul Gilbert
Leahy
The Masterless Men
The Tragically Hip
John Butler
Andy Mckee
Budgie(I think?)
Bob Brozman
Yes
Tenacious D(not the best music, but very funny)

and tooooooooons of guitarists.

I know rokchik, Gen, Hemlok etc. have showed me alot more, but I still havent managed to dive into all of these bands smile.gif
SRV, Leahy, Jefferson Airplane, The Masterless Men and Budgie are definitely my favorites of the bands I've discovered through GMC, atleast of those I can think of atm.


So, what about everyone else?


Just thought I could add a Bjørn Berge link since we're at this subject smile.gif

First of all, good thread mate smile.gif
I have to say i ve discovered some really good artists/bands(and songs of artists i already knew) through gmc.
I cant remember of all right now but i ll try to make a little list, as Robin did:

Bjorn Berge
Oystein Sunde
Opeth
Andy McKee
Riverdance
Leahy
Eric Clapton (just knew some famous songs but never really listened to him before slammer showed it to me, thanks biggrin.gif)
The Traveling Willburys
The Tragically Hip
Darkthrone
Budgie
Explosion In The Sky
and many others...

I would like to thank : Robin, Rokchik, Slammer and Fsdjv (sorry if i spelled it wrong tongue.gif), i probably wouldnt have heard of all the artists i ve mentionned without them, and thanks to all the GMC community for making that possible. Best Website ever smile.gif

Hey Robin, I hope you are feeling better and able to play soon smile.gif. One of my favorite bands is the Meat Puppets, really cool stuff from these guys I really love them. Too High To Die is a great album to check out. Also try Animal Bag. They had 2 albums, the first is self titled , the second was just cover tunes. The first is worth checking out. I have not really discovered anything new from the site that I have not listened to already and some of you younger guys and gals listen to stuff that I can't say I really enjoy smile.gif. Some of you guys dig up some really cool clips from Youtube, several of the artiasts I hope to check out an album or two.

That brings back memories Understudy - saw Meat Puppets years ago headline with Henry Rollins.

On that vein maybe a mention for Fugazi and Big Black seems called for smile.gif .

Cheers,
Tony

Not so much discovered but re-discovered, the main one to note is probably Paul Gilbert, I loved Mr big etc when it was all out but kinda got lost in the past till Muris`s PG lesson & Matts links to youtube, its made me dig out old albums, and its all come up fresh again smile.gif

(BTW excellent topic m8)

That is pretty awsome! biggrin.gif My local mate showed me Paul Gilbert just before I started GMC and i was hooked instantly - the magical video was scarified! cool.gif

But on topic, I have learned of a list a mile long of awsome players since joining GMC! I pretty much only listened to U2 before I joined up. I still like them alot, but i now have alot more to enjoy!
