                For me it was cos I saw friends play. And for a friend of mine it was those same friends and me playing that influenced him. So it's not just famous people. Although of famous people I would say Angus Young.

                    It's definitely a generational thing, not to mention geographical ... frinstance, Kiss were YUGE in the US and Japan, but never meant **************** in the UK.

                    In my own space/time nexus, Lonnie Donegan was massively important, as were early rockers like Elvis P and Buddy Holly ... then The Shadows and next The Beatles. The 'guitar hero' generation (I don't mean the game: I mean 60s stars like Clapton, Beck and Hendrix) were actually quite off-putting to young players, because the implication was that unless you were brilliant on that scale, you didn't deserve to be on a stage.

                    Which is why the First Wave punk bands were so important: the likes of The Ramones, the Pistols, The Clash and The Damned made it seem as if ANYONE who could master a few chords could get up and do it too. THAT was inspiring, though of course creating great punk rock wasn't nearly as easy and simple as they made it look.

                    Like the Sniffin' Glue fanzine once famously put it:

                    'Here's a chord [diagram].

                    'Here's another.

                    'Here's one more.

                    'NOW START A BAND.'

                    None of this 'spend twelve years in the bedroom learning to shred' crap back in MY day.

                    You started with the basics and learned the rest on the job.

                    So let's hear it for the PUNX.

                          That's interesting you mentioned that cause I heard an interview with tom morrello one time and he said the same thing.....He thought when he was a kid looking up to guys like tony iommi and richie blackmore as well as clapton etc that you'd have to own a castle on a scotish loch to be able to be in a band but all that changed for him when he heard the clash etc.

                          I think it really is a generational thing. I mean all the guys I knew picked up guitars cause of guys like warren demartini, robin crosby, randy rhodes, smith and murray,,and all the rest of the metal guys.

                              Who do you think has inspired the most people to pick up and learn to play electric guitar?


                              It would have to be someone from the baby boomer generation, just by the fact that the shear number of boomers overwhelms gen xers and what ever other generation you want to bring up. So, I'd say Beatles. Even for electric, yes.
