    Nobody's posted here in four months, but I figured I'd chime in if that's ok.

    I could list 100 albums if I wanted, but I'll have some fun and pick some big ones that really helped shape me.

    Albums I grew up with that were highly influential:

    1) Iron Maiden- "Somewhere In Time" (could pick any IM album really)
    2) Rush- "Hold Your Fire" (simply incredible)
    3) Metallica- "Ride The Lightning" (or Master Of Puppets" or "Kill 'Em All")
    4) Pink Floyd- "The Wall"
    5) Poison- "Look What The Cat Dragged In" (I know, I know, hell I was young)
    6) The Hellecasters- "Return Of The Hellecasters" (just great guitar stuff)
    7) Tom Petty- "Full Moon Fever"
    8) GnR- "Appetite For Destruction" (hard not to include this one)
    9) Phish- "Rift" (or "Farmhouse" or "Picture Of Nectar")
    10) Boston- "Boston"
    11) Zeppelin 4 (or 2, or "Physical Graffiti")
    12) Queensryche- "Operation Mindcrime" ("Empire" was killer, too)
    13) Eric Johnson- "Ah Via Musicom"
    14) Beatles- "Rubber Soul" (any Beatles album actually)
    15) AC/DC- "Back In Black" (also "Blow Up Your Video" has a special place in my heart)
    16) Michael Jackson- "Thriller" (What can I say?)

    And so many more... Dokken, Judas Priest, and Motley Crue could be honorable mentions. (Hey, I was a teen in the 80s)

    These days:

    1) Green Day- "American Idiot" (possibly favorite album of all time, masterpiece)
    2) Green Day- "Tre" (another one of my favorites of all time)
    3) Green Day- "Dookie"
    4) Green Day- "Warning"
    5) Green Day- "Revolution Radio" (new, I know, but blowing me away)
    6) Green Day- "21st Century Breakdown"

    I'll just stop now before I end up listing every Green Day album.
    (I know, I'm an idiot)

    I'll have a go:

    1) Bad Religion - Recipe for Hate
    2) Faith No More - Angel Dust
    3) Therapy? - Troublegum
    4) Alice In Chains - Jar of Flies
    5) Metallica - ...And Justice for All
    6) Sugar - Copper Blue
    7) Hüsker Dü - Zen Arcade
    8) Quicksand - Slip
    9) Nine Inch Nails - Broken
    10) Failure - Fantastic Planet

    At first I thought I was going to have trouble coming up with ten, but I ended up having to leave off a few!

    Influences can run a gamut of reasons for the influence. Some are musical muses, others are for the songs, others still for the production values that affect my path as a producer/engineer. And there's the ones that simply make me feel right on any given moment of any given day.

    Axis:Bold As Love

    Abbey Road

    Selling England By The Pound

    Dark Side Of The Moon

    Back In Black

    Rock Of Life

    Copperhead Road

    Some Girls

    Led Zeppelin I thru IV

    Country Til I Die


    Nuff said.... those of you who don't recognize some of these titles should look em up and listen.
    Chord with this, Teddy......

    Lol. I like the idea that you might own a 6' flatbed scanner.

    Some Girls is my favorite Stones album. It’s like they tried to do an album with a song in every style that was popular at the time.
