One of my biggest influences (more on bass than guitar as my guitar work is mostly acoustic).
Without Gang of Four, would there have been Talking Heads or Red Hot Chili Peppers?
I could kick myself for skipping their San Francisco show last year, just because I couldn't get anyone to go with me, so I figured "next time".
I did luckily see them with Sara Lee on bass and the awesome Bongos opening for them, back in the 80's. Crazy energy!
