I feel going to ten is a little silly but anyone with any interest at all in guitar should be familiar with Nic Jones' work.

Ok..this is going to be a weird list

Megadeth
The Beatles
The Ramones (the only punk band the world needed)
Hikaru Utada
Morbid Angel
Sex Machineguns
L'arc En Ciel
Illya Kuryaki and the Valderramas
Cannibal Corpse
Madonna

Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

I think that's the first mention of the Magic Mushroom Band I've seen on PA. They were from my home town. I think we supported them once or twice.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Yes, but 10 you feel strongly about? That's tougher. For me anyway. My top 10 would have to be bands in which I still enjoy a significant amount of their music, not just a few songs here and there. 

Beatles
Kings X
The Who
Journey
Sting
Triumph
Steely Dan
Rik Emmett
Alice In Chains
Mozart

In my younger days, Iron Maiden, Dio, and Queensryche would have made the list but I rarely listen to them anymore. And then there's all the bands on the fringe. Eagles, STP, Doors, Van Halen, Soundgarden, Black Sabbath, Steve Miller, Styx, and others.

 OK, that may be the only time in history the Cannibal Corpse & Madonna  ended up on the same list.
 Points for being original!

I stuck with ones that I consider to be prog related to some degree, but none of which are in PA to my knowledge.

Ennio Morricone
Egisto Macchi
Vladimir Cosma
Matt Berry
Sven Libaek
Lalo Schifrin
Karl-Heinz Schafer
Piero Umiliani
Mandingo
Air

Would like to list more, but there is ten.

A different list would apply on any given day but right now:

Rabih Abou-Khalil
Black Sabbath
John Coltrane
Andrew Hill
Olivier Messiaen
Charles Mingus
Thelonious Monk
Sam Rivers
Nick Saloman / The Bevis Frond
Per Henrik Wallin

I see Steely Dan on several lists - though they are prog according to PA.  Then again so is Rabih Abou-Khalil, though God only knows why - his music has nothing to do with rock that I can see or hear.
