I have a few.
Graham Coxon- Seeing Blur last week just reaffirmed all the reasons why he's my favourite guitarist. And I like his solo albums at least as much as what he did with Blur.
Steve Harris- Got where he did by grating, grafting, grafting. When punk was massive in '76 and '77 and Maiden were struggling, he could have so easily jacked it in and became a footballer but he stuck at it and it obviously paid off.
John Lydon- Clearly the influence that the Pistols have had on music wouldn't have happened without his lyrics. And in my opinion, Public Image Ltd were even better.
David Bowie- never did two albums that are the same and overall he was really fucking consistent right up until he'd decided he'd had enough and retired before he could become crap.
Alice Cooper- been rocking for over 40 years and still one of the best live acts in the world. I have 22 of his albums and with about 2 exceptions, they're all worth owning.
Adam Ant- I've been reading a lot lately about his struggles with mental illness and from what I can gather, he's been battling manic depression his entire life. I admire his conviction and the fact that seeing him live this year was quite possibly the best gig I've ever been to in my life.
