Depeche Mode has probably been in my top 5 the longest since Erasure fell out of my top 5 several years ago. Depeche Mode has been at least #2 since I discovered their music. Erasure was my original #1 and stayed there for quite a while but my tastes have since drifted toward darker music.

My current Top 5:
1. Depeche Mode
2. Gary Numan
3. Radiohead
4. Nine Inch Nails
5. Muse

I'm almost certain the top 2 on that list will always be somewhere in my top 5.

I may have only been alive for 19 years, but I never get tired of Beethoven. Or the red hot chili peppers.

Bruce Springsteen. Since Mr. Adams played Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ to my 7th grade class way back when, I was hooked and I will alway be. Thank you Mr. Springsteen (and Mr. Adams) for giving my life passion, balance and beauty.

Good for you! With all the Metheny bashers around, I'm glad someone claimed him as their favorite. Mine is Terje Rypdal.

What is really amazing to me is that, reading through all these lists, how great and self-fulfilling it is to see that all these artists you guys have listed, just blows me away. I love them all..... You guys rock! Thank You....

Jade Warrior - I listen to their music more often than any other artist and still discover new things after 40 years of repeat listening.

I love Terje Rypdal's tone. I made a compilation CD for my boss of Rypdal's music but I don't think he quite got the strange ethereal beauty of Terje's guitar.

I started listening to the Scorpions in the early '80's and never stopped. I bought all of their albums from the '70's and own everything but Eye II Eye. I even saw them twice on their farewell tour last summer.
