  • Everyone has a hero!

    Hey, i dont know how many of you have heroes in your lives whether they be in your everday life or someone famous. Or maybe your everyday life if your famous.

    But what i do know is who my hero is. And my hero is Paul Gilbert. He is -in my eyes- the most talented guitarist that ever did live (so far ;)) and love listening to him.

    Ive listened to every album Paul has put out and it is just freaking fantastic! A little bit of a backround!

    Some of you may or may not know the band Mr.Big, pretty popular in its time and Paul did the guitar for it, as well as his own band Racer X which was also pretty huge among the metal and rock world. Hes played with countless other famous guitar players and appeared at many events. Hes released dozens of albums and his guitar work is just phoenominal!

    What makes him my hero specifically is the time, effort and determination he puts into being an amazing guitarist and i think he deserves to be acknowledged up there with the best of them.


    So lets hear who your heroes are! Post your hero or mentor or w/e and tell the story!

      My heroine = Charlotte Bronte (as if that wasn't clear enough). I agree with/relate to almost everything she ever said. I am tolerably well convinced that if she were alive today she would be a gamer girl. Reason tells me so.



      Bronte comes from French & means thunder. Note my alternate pseudonym for 2142. I should have waited until tomorrow to post this. It's her birthday ;) The most recent Librivox tribute to her is here... http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=295148

                      Charles Darwin - To add to what neutrino said, Darwins' impact on modern thinking about the world about us and hence society was immense. yes, it followed some nasty stuff about eugenics and a twisted proxy by the Nazis came about because of it but nowadays we find variation key and we have become wonderous even more so because of what he layed out. I like it because it is akin to a philosophical way of thinking 'bend with the wind' kind of thing. I was brought up in the British Natural History Museum (not literally :P ). To me Darwin stands for a deep part of my essence as I grew up. Even his travelling and the time taken to wrrite The Orgin of Species, because of his understanding that what he was to publish would be huge, against the preconcieved values of the establishment, i.e. 'The Church'.

                      Richard Attenborough - (brother of David, Actor/Director of films) - For showing me darwins' theory all those days ago when I was brought up as a Catholic, and after about 4 weeks of watching his programs Life on Earth, thinking 'hang on I believe him more'. Being an Ambasador for many years and showing the general public, Life, and including thought out pariah subjects but valued ones, that go against the established thought in Biology/Anthropology like the Aquatic Ape hypothesis, which suggests we became upright, and speaks of our form as we are (like seemingly 'hairless', even as mum would say, our 'matrimonial prospects' etc etc etc etc) not on the Savahnnas of Africa, but besides a shore line.

                          I hear he does fantastic things with clay. His writing, though, just lacks a little something.
                          I can ADS using more than a 2x without significant stutter! This was a good patch.

                            Forrest Gump!

                            I know that he is fictitious, but I admire everything about him. Humble, smart, kind, brave, loyal...I think those are the virtues of a hero! That tramp Jenny doesn't deserve him;)

                              If there ever was a hero, it just may have been Gump...

                              God, what a great film. I still get fairly ( on a scale from 1 to 5, 3 ) emotional when I watch the end...
