Haha, I see Toasted Goat made it onto your list, Flyer

And Meow, it's been a while since I've seen you around here!  (I've been very tardy myself recently.)

I'll be honest, my liking of bands older than 10, 15 years is a bit limited.  It has nothing to do with their talent, I just stay a little more on the front lines of newer things.  I find certain groups very inspiring, but I've never been too much into what most people call the "classics".

Actually, it was the same when I took piano lessons; I didn't like learning music by Mozart or Bach, because *everybody* else knew how to play it.  It didn't mean that I thought any less of the music, I just wasn't very interested.

That being said, some of my inspiring favorites are a bit more modern in nature and/or style.  I mean to say nothing negative of the above bands, though, understand me well

Brand New
Utada Hikaru
Nobuo Uematsu
Jack's Mannequin
Coheed & Cambria
The Academy Is...
The Juliana Theory (I mourn their break up a few years back)
K.I.S.S. (it's a korean group, not the traditional KISS we think of in the european/north american sense.)
(the new) Dashboard Confessional (cd was excellent, I thought, "The Shade of Poison Trees")
Eisley
Ingrid Michaelson


And I'll stop there.  They're in no particular order, of course.

I've heard of Coheed and Cambria. Only reason is because they were on the cover of a guitar center magazine a month or so ago.
Cant say I dont like them, but they were advertising/promoting all these boss pedals and to be honest I dont really like boss's sound that much. Too digital for my liking.
I admit some of boss's pedals are nice, but the majority I dont. Whats the poitn of spending near $100 on a chromatic tuner? Just cause its a pedal?
Psssshhhhh

Pink Floyd (Echoes and Careful With That Axe are forever burned in my memory)
Paul Simon (Graceland album!)
Buffalo Springfield
Jeff Beck (Blow by Blow)
Duke Ellington
Andreas Vollenweider (Down to the Moon)

Not a very long list I suppose, and some of these bands aren't quite what you'd call "Classic," but this is the music that fascinated me growing up.

While the duke is great. I have to say that I find Charles Mingus (undoubtedly his most legitimate successor) to be much more interesting. And Sun Ra on top of that.

I guess we are just talking about influences instead of classics... I've tried to mention older stuff.

The Beach Boys (If the beatles and the stones are on classic rock stations the beach boys should be too... They're the same time and pet sounds is one of the greatest albums ever)
Sonic Youth
Daniel Johnston
The Raincoats
Half Japanese
The Residents
Stuff produced by Phil Spector (Listen to Be My Baby)
Faust
Can
Os Mutantes
Tom Ze
The Flaming Lips
Theolonious Monk
Television (Find Marquee Moon)
Captian Beefheart (Apparently he inspired blondie)
The Shaggs ("better than the beatles" said by one frank zappa)
Frank Zappa
Red Krayola/Mayo Thompson
Tiny Tim
Pavement/Stephen Malkmus
Yo La Tengo
