I've really got to get my hands on more of his stuff.

I'm playing Todd Rundgren's Hermit of Mink Hollow now.
I wish I had all my original albums from back in the days...at the time I was living in Cali and left a bunch of classic rock albums moving to MO. I guess they wasn't classic at the time! circa 1970s.

The only older band I can tolerate to listen to is Queen, and that's because Brian May is my only influence from the older rock bands that have influenced me enough to pick my guitars up. Plus, Freddie is a bad ass singer and pianist He influenced me to play piano..... RIP Freddie.

Sorry, going off. My meds finally kicked in, and I'm feeling good. Not good, but good. No, not that type of good, but good as in normal. Been sick for over two months now.... Besides the meds, the death metal playing in the background is helping too.... Nile - Cast down the Heretic

No wonder you can't get well...listening to that type of music....

Just kidding.

Since I'm older now my main music is Jazz, music to massage the mind!

Dude, even though I'm a death metal musician and all..... When it comes to acoustic, I love to pop in my Paco de Lucia DVD and play along

On the other hand, it seems that my sense of music appreciation pretty much hit a wall at the millennium. There's not all that much in the last decade that I've found to be particularly good, and the stuff I do like is usually from performers who started out earlier. There are a few gems, but they've been few and far-between.

Part of it probably comes from my circumstances here in Japan; I simply don't get as much exposure to new music as I used to (other than vapid JPop). But I also can't help feeling that the music scene simply turned in directions that I wasn't interested in following, like hip-hop and angry-white-boy grumbling.

More and more I'm finding myself looking into the past. It's the genealogy of modern music that captures my interest now.


Currently listening to Reverend Horton Heat: Lucky 7 (2002).

Well my dad ruined everything else cause he really tried to force on me bands such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Who, Yes, etc..... I greatly appreciate the music, because without it, I wouldn't have my death metal, but I can't listen to it, even if I had to save my life.

Strange coming from a musician. They normally listen to and like other music. I guess as you grow older you will come to appreciate other genres of music. When I was younger I did not like Jazz, having 4 older brothers who listen to it, but now that is my preferred music, along with R & B.

Listening to John Coltrane - A Love Supreme!

I love me some jazz too. And I do appreciate all of it, I just like to enjoy my death metal.

Not too bad. Even enjoyable if you're in a certain mood. But a good example of the A.W.B. music that doesn't interest me much.

While I'm not a huge Springsteen fan either, I much prefer the original:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4gra-OuONI

That's a good bluesy folk tune, that is.

But at the moment:

Yngwie J. Malmsteen: Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar and Orchestra in E flat minor - Op. 1
