    Favorite music?

    Don't know how many responses I'll get out of this But just wondering...
    What are your top 5 favorite bands/artists and why? Do they influence you if you play an instrument? If you can't narrow it down to just 5 then feel free to add on Vaughn I know you have been playing the guitar for years so you better chime in here!

    Stones, Led Zepellin, Aerosmith, more recently, Bowling for Soup, my newest fav, Alkaline Trio, but only their newest cd, not the
    older one.


    the list is too limited, cause ya got the Beatles, Monkies, Red Hot Chili Peppers,.........and I always like to sing anything by Axle Rose.

    Motzart to Metal for me; the side effects from being a music major in college. I think we have some other old rockers on here besides Vaughn and I. If you're looking for stuff to listen to it might be fun to start a "music you don't hear on the radio" list , they're always a kick. Just listen to radioparadise.com for a few hours. I have connected with all kinds of artists I was unaware of thanks to those guys.

    I'm like Glenn...I'd have a hard time narrowing it down to five. I like a little of everything, although speed/death metal doesn't really do much for me, and neither does most rap.

    I'm real tired of most "classic" rock because it's been so overplayed on the radio, but I like a lot of the older progressive stuff (Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Kansas, etc.). I also like a lot of the old "horn" bands like Chicago, Tower of Power, Chase, etc.

    My current tastes run all over the map. Among some of the more recent stuff I've picked up on iTunes:

    Conjure One
    Silversun Pickups
    My Morning Jacket
    Doves
    The New Pornographers
    Death Cab for Cutie
    Rodrigo y Gabriela
    School of Fish
    Evanescence
    Breaking Benjamin
    Catherine Wheel
    Guster
    The Killers
    Nitin Sawhney
    Gnarls Barkley
    James McMurtry
    Patty Griffin
    Porcupine Tree
    The Cardigans
    Tina Dico
    Venus Hum
    Imogen Heap
    Poe
    R.L. Burnside
    Medeski, Martin & Wood

    And my favorite radio station is www.radioparadise.com. A very eclectic, but well thought-out mix. Everything from Sinatra to World Music to Russian Bluegrass bands.

    This should be a fun thread to watch.

    Figures that they'd make somebody that can't count an Administrator here. Just like management. What with his music backbround, you'd think he'd only be able to manage ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR.

    Since I can only do FIVE
    John Scofield
    Jeff Beck
    Django Reinhardt
    Paco De Lucia
    Joni Mitchell
