If he was alive still today and composing music, I do think he'd be considered the best. It's rare to find someone who actually enjoys good music and I love all the artists you mentioned (CCR is the greatest American band ever IMO, and I worship 1987-'93 GNR like Jesus), but I meant what kind of equipment do you play?
