To be avoided, authenticity must be the goal.
I will mention musicians who are handling the same instruments as I do and who I admire:
On bass: Jean Jacques Burnel (Stranglers), Steve Harris (Iron Maiden), Bruce Foxton (The Jam), Lemmy (Motörhead), Peter Hook (Joy Division), Dee Dee Ramone (Ramones), Roger Glover (Deep Purple), Paul Simonon (The Clash).
Some for their skill, others for their energy but all for their very own style.
Fave singers: Paul Di'anno (Iron Maiden), Ian Curtis (Joy Division), Gary Barden (Michael Schenker Group), Leonard Cohen, Stiv Bators (Dead Boys/Lords of the New Church), Carl (Blitz), Lemmy (Motörhead), Phill Mogg (UFO), Rainer (08/15), David Vincent (Morbid Angel), Chris Bailey (Saints), Quorthon (Bathory), David Byron (Uriah Heep), Stigger (Warlord).
Again some for their skill, others for their energy but all for their very own style.
