Those are all heroes, but I’d like to mention some other major players on 100s of recordings we love: The Wrecking Crew, The Funk Brothers, the Muscle Shoals guys, the Stax house band.

People like James Jamerson, Carol Kaye, Hal Blaine.

Those are some major music heroes.

OK - Leonard Cohen because he was a total genius - his lyrics ripped through my young emotions back in the day and I saw him live only a couple of years before he passed away. Melanie because I saw her live at the first Glastonbury Festival - playing her guitar solo on the stage, hair blowing in the wind, double rainbows in the sky - she was singing about peace. Ryan Adams because he's just such a prolific songwritier and although I'm not a mad country fan I just love his music - my favourite track is When The Stars Go Blue. Paloma Faith because she's just a gorgeous, talented, sexy, fabulous, note perfect talented pop star with a background in burlesque and is just the real deal live. Pretenders because having a female lead singer back in the day who could belt out the lyrics along with the best impressed and inspired me. Nirvana - what can I say - heavy metal isn't my bag but I just adored them and they were popular when I was really coming back to the music scene after bringing my kids up on my own. David Bowie was one of my greatest heroes - alternative, androgenous, weird and just wonderful. Jimi Hendrix was my introduction to unbelievable guitar playing and psychedelia along with Pink Floyd who were my idols back in the day. Finally a band you've probably never heard of - Edgelarks comprising Philip Henry and Hannah Martin - a songwriting couple who are multi instrumentalists and brilliant folk singers who I've seen live numerous times and never disappoint. They inspired me as they write about everyday stuff as well as justice and fairness. There's your answer Todd!!!!!

King Gizzard and the lizard wizard for releasing 7 great albums in one year. Stereolab for being the coolest band on the planet. Echo and the bunnymen because if you don't like these cheeky chappies from Liverpool, i would give up music and take up painting or something

Tom Waits. A brilliant writer who understands how instrumentation helps tell the story.

Bob Dylan. I probably don't need to explain this one.

Lemmy Kilmister. Motorhead turned my teenage self from a video game obsessive to a music enthusiast, effectively changing my life for good. For a period in my twenties I felt I outgrew his music, but my love for it has returned in recent years. Lemmy often got surprisingly melodic, and hearing this with his jagged voice taught me a lot about the effectiveness of juxtaposition in music.

Gord Downie. His lyrics invite interpretation, and his delivery elicits immediate emotion. Listen to the Tragically Hip's "Scared" for evidence.
