Of course I agree with a lot of names already mentioned, but I thought I’d throw Billy Gould out there. I’m a fan of FNM, and his playing is a prominent part of their sound…

Too late, he’s already inspired & motivated too many metalheads. Whether he considers himself metal or not is irrelevant because all the metalheads already consider him metal & relevant.

In fact I was just listening to this song earlier by Whisky Ritual that mentions Killmister.
Lyrics: “666 problems on my mind
This fuckin speed won’t let me sleep tonight
666 liver like Killmister”

Michael Bishop aka Beefcake the Mighty from GWAR. I think he’s the main one that stands out to me that hasn’t already been mentioned in this thread.
