They should cut heads to decide this one:

Instrumentalist - Guitarist
Aaron Williams
John Masino
Louka Patenaude
Art Paul Schlosser


Color me biased, but no Kyle Motor?

Songwriter/lead guitarist/Lead Vocalist in The Motorz

Best honky-tonk drummer/Back-up Vocals in Earl Foss Brown Derby

Hello? The God-Damns? Best record to come out of Madison in years. (Also recorded by him)

Bass/back up Vocals in The August Teens

All around "go-to guy" whenever a sit-in player is needed.

Not to mention outstanding Recording work, most notably on the Midwest Beat, the Shabelles, and the Arkoffs. (honorable mentions for recording all the Motorz Albums, Road Agent Spin, the August Teens, and a kickass Solo Record)

Also he is extremely good looking.

I almost started a new thread when they first made that announcement that would have gone something like this.

Subject: And the Guitarist of Year Award goes to....

Body: ...Art Paul Schlosser

Followed by a link to the MAMA 2011 Final Nominees.

But I am trying to bite my tongue instead of criticizing the MAMAs this year as they do honorable things.

I agree that Kyle Motor is extremely good looking.
Unfortunately Kyle did not enter himself or his music for consideration. The MAMAs cannot, and will not, cherry pick who gets consideration.

That said, I am working on some major improvements to the MAMAs that will be implemented next year and it looks like I finally have Board support to get this done. I'm excited to share this information soon. There will be both a poll and at least one public forum. I'll post that info here. There is much work to do.

Counterpoint - Kyle Motor is Madison's greatest monster.

Discuss.

This Monster has a weakness.
It can be chased away with chorus-y guitar tones.

Use this method at your own risk. It has many negative side affects

Kyle is Madison's greatest MONSTER OF ROCK and more. He avoids the chorus-y guitar tones because he wants to use his power for good, not evil. One time, he told me, "That was the best cover anyone has done of a Motorz song." It was the second or third best thing that ever happened to me. Maybe fourth.

There is a Kyle Army for a reason.
