Joey Santiago is one of my favourite guitar plays of all time ever ever ever... he's a massive inspiration to me. :)

I sort of have a crush on Kim Deal even though she's old enough to be my mother, so her :P.


The guitarist is fucking cool though. The drummer is my least favourite, he caused a lot of tension in LoudQuietLoud which turned me against him.
How can I begin anything new with all of yesterday in me?

There was another drummer that I don't think ever played a gig.

Don't worry! I think everyone is entitled to some weird crush that no one understands :lol: I have a HUGE crush on a forty year old woman. BTW I voted Kim, great bassist.

I voted for Joey, great guitar player. I think Joey made that band unique. He has a very distinct way of how to play guitar..

This one is really hard. I've always liked Charles of course, his screaming voice and surrealistic songwriting blows me away every time. His requirements to have the power of the band is sad though, and I don't like the way he treated Kim. Because Kim had just as much talent as Charles, and it's a shame that she couldn't contribute more with vocals and songwriting. I really like her other bands (The Breeders and The Amps). Joey is also a good guy, and I agree with the person above saying his guitarplaying is an important key to the Pixies unique sound. He has always been very underrated, and he is among my favorites. His solo on Vamos never gets old. :D I have never been much into David, his drumming isn't breathtaking and I don't like his vocals either (La La Love You isn't a favorite).

As I said, this one is pretty hard. There just seem to be so much talent in this band, that it sometimes flowed over for the members. Since Charles was so harsh with Kim, and Kim never contributed too much in the band, I think I have too go with Joey on this one. 8)

Ugh this one is so hard!

I have total most respect for both Kim and Charles and I even saw the Breeders live once and they were awesome.

But Frank Black is just so bad a**. His solo stuff is rad, yes sadly it is better then the Breeders so that is one of the reasons I am putting him over the top. Look at this video, awesome chorus, but also dude is actually dressed like a grunge musician in flannel and jeans! :geek:

*P.S. Also Charles moved out here to the Pacific Northwest so a part of me wants to root for the home team:
Thompson currently lives in Portland, Oregon, and is married to Violet Clark, his second wife, with whom he has three children, along with her two children from previous relationships.[1][72] The couple formerly lived in Eugene, Oregon, where they met.[73]
