Apparently the answer to my question is "no". She is releated to Roxy Petrucci from Vixen, but no mention of John.

Petrucci is God.

Is he any relation to the Petrucci that played in Madame X?
:D

I've never heard of Madame X.

I actually can dig on some Vixen from time to time. I probably should've kept that one to myself though!

You do have to admit that Jan is one hot axe slinger! :D

To me, that is nothing to be ashamed of. Girls look good all glammed up with makeup and big hair. When guys do it, it just looks silly and very non-metal. :twisted:

Rock wrote:mine are

1. Ace Frehely...as a kid he was the main reason I wanted to be a rockstar and a guitarist, he was the first one I got in to as a kid and worshipped.

2. Eddie Van Halen..Just doing something different, first time I heard eruption, just confirmed for me, I wanted a guitar and play.

3. Richie Blackmore.....Just a fkn genius, both in songwriting and guitar playing, learnt alot from him.

4. Randy Rhoads....Besides EVH, no one seemed as flashy to me at the time when these guys ruled, he was pure yet, an individual.

5. Slash...In later years, i totally got over the shredding, and have become a more hard rock orientated player, and slash was one player that done that for me.

There are so many more, including Jake that have influenced me, it is very hard to pick top 5, but Ace definately started it all for me. :) Also Steve Stevens from billy idol, vince neil projest etc fkn blows me away everytime, Robyn ford, clapton, beck etc etc etc, where does the fkn list stop of players that has influenced someone, unless u are fkn deaf. :)


i agree how can u just name those who r in ur head at the time wen l8r on u think fuk me y didnt i put some1 elses name!

Steve Lynch


Remember, Steve's from Autograph. Anyway, my influences:

1. Reb Beach-Amazing player. Extremely underrated. I love his tapping licks and his tone with Winger

2. Chris Caffery-I absolutely LOVE his work with Savatage and Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

3. Joe Perry-One of the greatest hard rock/bluesy players on the planet. His late 80's work inspired me

4. Steve Clark-Best rhythm player ever. Nuff said

5. The Great Kat-She's crazy as hell, and absolutely HATES modern music to death, but she shreds like crazy
