Mark Holcomb of Periphery: My Five Most Influential Guitarists
Mark Holcomb of Periphery
01. Randy Rhoads
I remember loving his playing on Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman when I was younger, but the moment I heard him play live on Tribute, my view of guitar was transformed. He was an amazing riff-writer and songwriter, but where he really shined was in his ability to spice up songs when playing live and add a new dimension to songs by improvising and adding spontaneous fills. The classical influence in his songwriting and lead playing were so ahead of its time.
