Lets see...

Beethoven, Beastie Boys, Motzart, Metallica, Vivaldi, Iron Maiden, Floyd, Led Zepplin, Buffet, Skynnard, Clapton, BB King, and I could go on here for a couple of pages.

Metal, rock, classic rock, classical, and blues. That kinda sums up what I listen to, but I will say that my taste in music is rather diverse. The only music I really don't care for is country.

Symphonic Rock makes up a substantial part of my collection.

In no particular order: Magnum, Kate Bush, Jethro Tull, Marillion, ZZ-Top, Dream Theater, Kiss, Depeche Mode, Queensr˙che, ABBA, Jean Michel Jarre, Classics (sometimes: Bach, Mozart, Grieg, Chopin, Beethoven, Verdi, Bizet... Not Vivaldi though). 10CC and City Boy, and then there are some domestic (Swedish) bands I enjoy that aren't much known outside Sweden.

I like the Beatles and Lennon, Dylan, Zeppelin, CCR, the Birds, Doors, etc. I like mostly classic rock. I like blues. Some country, like the old stuff. Cash and Waylon and Willie. I like new rock too, and some metal.

The only genres I really can't stand are Jazz (I know, I've tried to like it..just sounds like people playing scales out of tune to me) and gospel.

Mostly classical day to day. It plays here all the time as a sort of a background. Also folk, particulary Buffy St. Marie (whom I've met), the Kingston Trio (yeah, I know), Woody Guthrie, Jimmy Driftwood, among many others. Jazz: Louie 'Gatemouth' Armstrong, Dizzy Gillispie, Ray Charles, Tiajuna Brass, Santo and Johnny, Billie Holiday, not to mention some of the Tin Pan Alley composers such as Scott Joplin. Blues: Leadbelly, Lightning Hopkins, Mississippi John Hurt, Manse Lipscomb, Etta Speed, Libba Cotton, Josh White, Sonny Terry and Browny MaGhee, et al.

I'm a listener to solo, acoustic guitar, classical and otherwise, and not necessarly old stuff: John Williams, Leo Kotke, Liona Boyd, Sharon Isbin, and the king of the flat pick: Doc Watson, who is also a fine singer.

Johnny Cash and The Pearl are in a class of their own.

I also like some '70s rock. As for modern pop, it sucks sewage through a straw.

Say, are you the reincarnation of Blind Willie McTell?

I guess it's what's called "free form" jazz or whatever. Basically two guys honking on clarinets, but not necessarily playing the same notes or making music in tune...

Like I said, just not my thing. I'm probably not explaning it well. It's just that when I've tried to sit down and listen to the stuff it doesn't do anything for me.

But I do like Louie Armstrong. It that Jazz? Maybe it's only some jazz I don't like then.

You betcha. Gatemouth was a jazzman extraodinair. He once broke the callus in his lip, and played anyway. Blood in the horn; that's dedication!

Jazz is anything you want it to be. You have simply not heard what what is best for you. I love the pianos of Tin Pan Alley.

I like pretty much anything classic rock + Lonestar, my favorites being Pink Floyd and Eagles.

Edit:

Oh, and welcome to the SFN

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

Jeezus Dude, I was wondering what bastard stole my CD collection......

When can I have it back???

Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it's a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from.

Hmm, favourites.. Lemme think.

Dark Tranquility, Dimmu Borgir, Dissection, Children of Bodom. Black metal is somewhat overrepresented in my CD collection.

Oddly enough the one band i have most CDs off is a punk-rock band, Bad Religion.
I guess I'm a child of the nineties :)

I was going to go over to your place and wash your mouth out with soap. But I don't like free style myself. So its OK.

I like Jazz, Blues, Rock, Classical, Soul. Mostly things by people who are dead or old. There are a few fresh faces in my CD collection though. For some reason I also like Weird Al.

I don't see Brittney Spears or N'Sync anywhere. Yay!

Who?

Another form of music I like are the Gregorian Chants. A little goes a long way, though. I also like Gosple, oddly enough.

Welcome to the SFN, Blindwillie!

Great thread. I know I will forget some music I love, but here goes (in no particular order): Jackson Browne, Aerosmith, Pachelbel, Billy Joel, Pink Floyd, Barenaked Ladies (yeah, I know but I like 'em!), B.B. King, Louie Armstrong, Jimmy Buffett, The Police, The Ennis Sisters (Celtic), Mandala (local Bluegrass), Neil Young, Bach, The Eagles, John Prine...

... and I agree with filthy about Gregorian chants, but not gospel.
