Cameron Diaz is quite athletic-looking, buff arms and such. Megan Fox seems more fragile. Cameron would win.

B.B. King. Dont know anything about Blues but BB King is namechecked in Dig It and for that reason alone gets my vote.

Wow, that's a tough one. I saw BBK in concert at least 20 years ago and was blown away. On the other hand, Zag and I really love SRV's music.

I have to believe that BBK most likely influenced SRV in some way and he also appears on one of Zag's favorite U2 songs, so I'll give the nod to BBK.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I've gotta admit that I've never cared overmuch for "straight" modern urban blues or blues guitar; it's usually gotta be rocking or funky or swinging to sustain my interest. B.B. King has a nice tasteful single-note style that I've always appreciated, but I've never owned one of his albums – I'm sure it'd be more fun to see him live (like Zig!) (Oh wait – I do have "B.B.'s Greatest Hits" but I've never played it much.) But as far as I know (which isn't far at all), B.B. never seemed to care much for rhythm playing, unlike Stevie. (And I could be way-wrong about that.) And rhythm guitar is important to me. So I'll have to give it to SRV (perhaps unjustly).

I like black music, disco music. I like the disco music that's out now - John Lennon, 1975

If you don't mind, I want to add my two cents :)

 

B.B. King is without a doubt, The Godfather of The Blues. Plenty of people agree that he's the first name that comes to mind when they think of the blues. He has a gift with the guitar and makes it come to life, and it's totally heard in his music. He was, and still is, a major inspiration to rock musicians everywhere.

 

But SRV plays a major role in introducing me to rock music in many ways.

First, SRV and Double Trouble has always been my dad's favorite band. He idolizes Stevie and owns all of his albums, so I grew up listening to him.

Second, he makes me proud to be from the Lone Star State :)

Third, watch the music video for "Cold Shot". If you look hard enough, it sends a great message about his passion for the music. He devoted his whole tragically short life to mastering the creation of a perfect blues-rock song, and treated it like a form of art. It seemed like the guitar ran through his veins, and not even a woman can overthrow his obsession for the instrument.

 

SRV wins for me.

Apples for both B.B. and Stevie apple01apple01

I guess I should try to revive this, now that it's in the shadow of The Official Choosing Between Two Things topic :(

I call this a tie, since they both are Gods of The Blues.

Another weird one,

Family Guy or The Simpsons? (I'm hopeless :/ )

Simsons, Simpsons, Simpsons.! a-hard-days-night-john-6

Family Guy is quite boring, I think. but I still love Stewie.

Would be the simpsons but from the early days. Nowadays its not that good. Never found Family Guy to be of any interest.

Early and mid seasons of the simpons. (I know, sounds weird haha)

 

I don't like family guy, it kind of traumatized me. (is that how you spell it?)

It's funny, but the dog, Brian (I think) is kind of creepy, falling in love with Lois. And, yeah I just don't like it. I have a lot of time without watching it.

The Simpsons, simply because I (oddly enough) grew up watching them. Family Guy just sounds kind of stupid to me.

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

The Simpsons. Just like CS, I grew up watching them. I've never really liked family guy, to be honest. I don't find it funny at all. And in the Simpsons, I love how Flanders is a mad Beatles fan.

It just depends on what you prefer, I had an (Epiphone) Les Paul and now have a Fender Telecaster and I prefer my Tele because it has more bite to it and I like to play funk. But those insanely fast jazz guys play Les Paul's because they are cleaner, but less fun I think. Gibson surely makes superior acoustic guitars, John in particular was a fan. I owned a Fender acoustic when I first started playing and hated it. So electric Fender, acoustic Gibson.

My brother had a Fender Strat but upgraded to a Gibson Les Paul. The LP wins for me every time. Such a beautiful instrument. Strats always seem a bit lightweight to me. I haven't played any other guitars by either company.

I'd be lying if I claimed I could always identify one from the other based purely on hearing a recording, but so many of my favourites have used Les Pauls and SGs that I'll have to say Gibson, my Hendrix fandom aside. (Never played an authentic Gibson or Fender instrument myself, aside from fooling around on an unplugged SG for an hour or so, years ago.)
