Guitar Hero - Mr. Stu

There is one man who has influenced me as a guitar player more than any other... Stu G of Delirious.

I listened to Delirious all the time when I was younger. I had every record. Actually, I still do. He inspired me to learn the guitar, and to this day, so much of my style is derived from him. He just has this swagger about him.... He's technical while still being incredibly tasteful. He also has this Jeff Beck-like ability to write parts that are almost vocal.

Of all his work, there is one moment in their musical career that influenced me more than any other... The solo from Investigate.


Incidentally, my friend Tony was the lighting designer on this show. Looks good, yeah?!!

It sucks a lot that these guys are breaking up. Wish I could have caught part of their latest tour.
