My favorites (and inspirations) definitely have to be:
Pink Floyd

I won't list them cause are sooooo many, and I don't want to leave some of them out.
I'll just say that my inspiration starts with The Beatles, so then from that point there are loads and loads of bands that really changed my life.

I've thought about this a few times.  It's tough to say who influenced my musical tastes the most, but I've narrowed it down to a seemingly bizarre selection of:
(in the "early" years)
 - Moody Blues
 - Queen
 - Hall & Oates
 - Jethro Tull
 - Yes
 - Steely Dan
 - Deep Purple

(the "middle" years add the following)
 - Aerosmith
 - Rolling Stones  (I was a late starter on their music!)
 - Pink Floyd       (another late starter, although I owned a few Floyd albums since my early teens it was only when I started playing
                          guitar again that I really started to appreciate their music and the guitar skills of Gilmour)
 - Todd Rungren / Utopia

(and in the "recent" years, add)
 - Evanescence
 - Pink
 - Walter Trout

While I'm deeply impressed with the ability of Vai, Satriani, Petrucci etc, I can't really say that they've influenced my musical style in any way.

There are others that I regularly listen to and enjoy - but I guess those above have made the biggest impression on me.

Oh yeah man Vai and Satriani are awesome guitarists. I just got back from a Joe Satriani concert Sunday night.
It was so amazing!

But I guess stuff like that can't realy influence you unless you can play guitar at Mach 1.

I really like Dire Straits and that stuff too.

Keep em coming guys this is great!
