Must note, that I owe the swords due to my passion for historical martial arts, and I only swing it at other enthusiast on a training grounds.
It's not 9th century of course, so I work for my money, and spend them on my very, very,very independent music label, work a lot and spend rest of the time in studio plus occasional training.
I am a very good listener,
Animals like me, specially dogs.
I am too nice for my own good, but it feels rewarding, to help other people, so I keep doing that.
Top of the list is Jimi Hendrix, somewhat lack of techniques, compensated by his extraordinary bond with the instrument, ability to think out loud trough guitar... Just listen to Voodoo Child you'll see.
I can go on forever like that, so here is the list: Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Maddy Waters.
Reed, Morrison, Simon and Garfunkel, and similar.
Nirvana, Stone Roses and Verve, not so much of Oasis fan.
Any decent Drum and bass, dubstep house, techno and hardcore. Trance is quite boring, unless its psy. Infected Mushroom for example.
I like Bach, Tchaikovsky and Chopin, again long list.
