Sorry got carried away there - haha Classic Rock would be the genre of choice... Top three bands I suppose are AC&DC, Queen, Led Zep could surive many a month with just those three .....

I rock.
listen to oldies like Pink Floyd, Queen, Led Zep, Jimi Hendrix, and The Who.
newer groups include Nirvana, PJ Harvey, Soundgarden, Wolfmother, Stone Temple Pilots, and White Stripes.

Yesterday bought new Judas Priest album "Nostradamus". Really good album. Who would have thought a concept album from them? Must check to see if its available on vinyl.

Also listen to jazz, classical, bluegrass, pop, blues, new age, and a small amount of country and rap( very small that last one). Probably have more money in music/audio equipment than photo stuff.

Checkout POINT & SOOT CONTEST #9 WINNERS in P&S forum. Enter #10. #10 ends tonight so hurry? Any type camera except slr. Any brand. Any subject. Enter now.

grunge & metal

Can't get out of the early 90's myself... according to windows media player, the most songs I've got are by Pearl Jam, followed closely by Queensryche. I prefer Pearl Jam if only because I can sing along with them in the car. Geoff Tate (Queensryche) hits notes I can't touch with a 10 foot pole, so they're not as fun to listen to. They used to put on awesome live shows, too.

Other than those two, alternative stuff I've always turned back to are bands like Toad the Wet Sprocket, Def Leppard (most everything other than Pyromania - I think all the classic rock stations way overdo "Photograph" - I hate that track because of it)

After that, it's instrumental stuff. Soundtracks (The Last Samurai is my latest acquisition, Lord of the Rings soundtracks were great but I overplayed it myself...) - and some new age/space music thrown in. (if you like that sort of thing, I highly recommend the program called "Hearts of Space" on public radio. Usually plays on Sunday nights at 11 on my local station.

Do we Rock?

I didn't really mean "what kind of music do you listen", but rather "what kind of music do you prefer"

>monochrome: why not?
C&W and traditional bluegrass is not the typical Baby Boomer playlist in the USA, but anyway - best string musicians out there. We have a restored vaudeville Fox Theater here that hosts a wide variety of artists.

In the last year I've taken my wife there to see Bob Dylan on tour with WAYLON JENNINGS (!), Dolly Parton, Lyle Lovett and Bonnie Raitt. Also went to Nashville and the Opry couple years ago (Willie Nelson was featured artist).

Also have a smaller acoustic venue where I saw Alison Krauss and Ricky Skaggs recently. It has been a great few years.

Our in home playlist has been more dictated by whatever our children are listening to (we don't do things separately from them), but they listen to a lot of our stuff and we all play some instrument, so . . .

do we rock?

I like great guitarists, and mainly hard rock, also LOVE good guitar based blues. Fav bands include Deep Purple Mk II ( Ian Gillan on vocals, and Roger Glover on bass ) If i was stranded on a deserted island, all I would need is a copy of Made In Japan by Deep Purple, and I would be set as far as music goes, best live rock album ever !!, Humble Pie, Robin Trower, Cream, SRV, Buddy Guy, Albert Collins, Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush, Sweaty Teddy Nugent ( what a showman back in the day !! ) Montrose, Foghat, of course Jimi Hendrix, newer artists I like include Joe Satriani, an awesome guitarist, maybe the best rock guitarist on earth, Steve Vai, Ingwee Mallmsteen..........I am sure I will think of more later, lol

I rock the hell out, all the time.

Mostly classic rock from the 60s and 70s, but I get down to hair metal here n there, and 90s rock is when I first started listening to music (STP, Hootie, Bush etc).

3 of my top classic bands...Hendrix, Floyd, and Zep in order.

And STP is one of the best 90s bands by far.

More modern...I love Audioslave, Incubus, 3 Days Grace, and Breaking Benjamin.

Guess what record (yes, 33 1/3 rpm) I got a couple days ago? It came with The Wall, a couple Zeps and The Kids are Alright...for a veryyyyyyyyy cheap price.

Rock - oh year we rock!

Really anything, but for many years now, I've been into heavy melodic metal/rock such as Dark Tranquility, Soilwork, Arch Enemy, In Flames, etc.

From the lighter side - AC/DC, WASP, Judas Priest...

From "modern", some are Samel, Green Carnation, Front Line Assembly...

Willing to listen anything at least once

Arpe has personally confided in me and in several others of his love for not only the abovementioned musicians, but also for Dave Dobbyn and The Herbs, especially that magnum opus, "Slice of Heaven", the words of which he has assured me he has memorised all the words.

In light of the the evidence I have provided, there should be no need to exile Arpe to Australia.
