Nice to see Axle Rose on the list - Guns and Roses have nothing to do w the classical world, but it is cool that you include other artists that you like as well! And I love G and R. Thanks again

Hey Rphus, G & R are and will always be badass. That's fact ;) There's so many artists I do not bother putting on these lists, don't want to get too off-topic. I love all types of "extreme" music, from grindcore, and black metal, to experimental "noise" and electronic musics (esp early obscure hard techno, gabber, breakcore) and plenty of unclassifiable!!

THX again for commenting
