>>60187879 >The Beatles Strong melodic songwriting and personal, introspective lyricism >Beach Boys Tight harmonies and unorthodox instrumentation >The Doors Atmospheric psychedelic soundscapes and daring lyrical poetry >Jimi Hendrix Integration of strong songwriting, instrumental gymnastics, and conceptual ambition >Sliver Apples >Soft Machine Taking big risks and pushing the boundaries of your time >Frank Zappa Combining genres, humor, technical virtuosity, and legitimate feeling to become wholly original >The Shaggs >Captain Beefheart Music doesn't always have to follow the rules, and anything can find a niche with enough conviction and dedication >Neil Young Folk can have an angsty side and rock can have a sensitive side, as long as the songwriting is solid and the lyrics are poignant and sung without artificiality >Black Sabbath >Led Zeppelin Big riffs lmao >Pink Floyd Drama can be done tastefully if the compositions suit it >Jethro Tull Quirkiness can be both esoteric and accessible with intelligent songwriting >Joni Mitchell Creativity draws heavily from one's own reality >Tom Waits Like Neil Young, but with a lot more emphasis on experimentation and synthesizing your influences >Rush Like Jethro Tull, but with a bigger emphasis on technical proficiency and how it can still work for a "poppier" kind of song >The Congos >Augustus Pablo Introduced me to the world of innovative dub music production, from which all electronic music has sprung >Supertramp Like Rush, but with a bigger emphasis on the pop aspect >Van Halen There's a way to make showboating tasteful >Talking Heads You shouldn't be afraid to tout your influences and combine them into something accessible >Minutemen Sometimes the "simplest" music can be the most creative >Prince Music can be tastefully hypersexual if the compositions are strong >Meat Puppets Some aspects of one's music can be so good that they make up for or even add charm to other shortcomings
