    I play and perform on acoustic guitar (I have a collection of vintage instruments) so my tastes lean towards music that I like to arrange and play.

    My favorite all time music is the ecstatic improvisation of the Grateful Dead. Since the band played for nearly 35 years, and since virtually every concert was taped there is a wealth of music to be explored. I was a vetran of many tours: some of the most memorable moments in my long life were found at their shows. Like the old quote says "Who are the Grateful Dead, and why do they keep following me around?"

    ALso gotta love the Beatles, right?

    Next up: I am a bluegrass musician, and love all antique traditional music in the bluegrass and Celtic genera. I also am an old folkie, and love the singer songwriter styles: Dylan, Simon and Garfunkle, James Taylor, Neil Young and lika dat. Old stuff from pre-radio days is of great interest. It's amazing these songs have been cherished and passed down through the ages to by played in a livingroom centuries after the composer died.

    I also go for the blues stuff, mostly delta blues ala Robert Johnson, and the more modern reiterations like Eric Clapton, Cream, old Fleetwood Mac.

    I quit listening to the radio and MTV back in the early 80's, hee hee. I miss it not at all.

    You're guaranteed to find music of the following in my car:

    Metal: Metallica (Black album and prior)
    Metal: Ozzy Osbourne
    80's: Survivor (no, not the reality TV show; 'Eye of the Tiger' etc.)
    Goth: Evanesence
    Punk/Alternative: Linkin Park
    Rap: Eminem
    Blues: Stevie Ray Vaughn
    Blues: Eric Clapton
    Christian/Latin: Jaci Velasquez
    Bluegrass?: Alisson Krause
    Chinese: Yan-zi 'Stephanie' Sun (those from Asia should know her)
    Dance: At least a couple of compilations (to keep me awake while driving)...

    I listen to all these genre and constantly change the CD based on how I feel or how I want to feel.

    So who in the world is buying all those Brittany albums? I think it's just a ClearChannel conspiracy, myself.

    I don't dig old fart music, but I think it's pretty reliable to say that the Beatles are one of the greatest bands ever. Props to Johny Cash, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Cat Stevens, Pat Benetar (a little dated now, though), okay, I'll stop before I just list a chronological list of great singer/bands.

    How about revolutionaries? There is too much great music, but so much is just copied (and I don't want to debate the whole "Good artists borrow, great artists steal" thing). I'm talking about originality:

    the Beatles (mostly late Beatles)
    CCR
    the Doors
    Janis Joplin
    Ozzy with Black Sabbath
    REM
    Pearl Jam (debatable, but hey...)
    Eminem (this one guy changed the face of rap and pop culture)
    the Cure
    Primus
    Danzig
    Green Day (huh?)
    Toad the Wet Sprocket
    of coarse The Dead
    the Smiths
    Led Zeplin
    Pink Floyd
    Jimi Hendrix (I was forgetting the basics)
    The Chemical Brothers
    the Beastie Boys
    the Violent Femmes (way ahead of their time)
    Bob Marley
    I've never heard of anything by them, but my buddy Adam says Pavement.

    I think one of the most important trends lately has been the feminine movement within the music industry. Women have been traditionally overlooked or just taken advantage of. Women of extreme importance (politically as well as musically) are Ani DeFranco, Tori Amos, Sarah Machalan, and the Indigo Girls. What makes these women so amazing isn't just that they are taking a stance agains corporate music and making a statement about our culture, but they are awesome musicians and very creative artists. Sadly, rumor has it that Lilith Fair will be no more. Hopefully something will come in to take its place.

    One of my personal favorites that no one seems to have heard of is Turin Brakes. They just came out with their second album.

    I guess FTG is busy with school back in session. Oh well, she'll just have to catch up.
    Isn't music great, though? Such a powerful force.
