Hi Guys, since we are all getting to know each other a little better, I thought that it would be interesting to learn the genre of music that "rocks" each ofour boatsand in particular, the artist or band(s) that do it.

I enjoy "soft rock" but can listen to almost any music genre with the exception of Jazz, which I just don't get.


My favourite bands are The Beatles, Queen and Thin Lizzy.


As a teenager I used to frequent music concerts at the Old Glasgow Apollo in Renfield Street and saw such bands as Queen, Status Quo, Thin Lizzy, UFO, Rush, Rainbow, Whitesnake, Judas Priest and Blue Oyster Cult to name but a few.


I actually managed to see Queen sixteen times......now that brings back some memories

Being as I was born in 1951, it shouldn't really surprise anyone that my musical tastes come from the 50s and 60s mostly.

My favourite genre is Blues, especially the work of Eric Clapton and the various bands he has been in over the years. I like some of the original deep south blues and many of the modern day American blues artists like BB King, Robert Cray and Buddy Guy. I also like some Beatles, The Eagles, The Who, The Stones, Jimi Hendrix and a few others from that period.

I'm also quite keen on some classical music, but not any form of classical singing. I'm quite fond of classical guitar music. Beethoven is my favourite composer.

Don't really have much time for the current music scene.

In the car I use USB sticks filled with my favourite tracks and just switch between different genres when I feel like it.

In car entertainment? I will take about anything as long as it has a bit of class;
Classical, definately but preforably not barock

Opera, most certainly

Jazz, swing abd big-band, bring it on

Pop and Rock, absolutely. Anything from Cream and the Doors to P!nk.

What I will not tollerate is the kind of music played in stores that is totally soleless.

Sometime I will even listen to Kevin Bl**dy Wilson but the wife says he is too vulgar. Not true - he is just from Oz.

I thought you were older than that John?.

I used to be a big music fan and spend a fortune on expensive stereo equipment and then I got married!!!!!!.

I probably have 300-400 cd's from those days. Today they are all on the pc so I probably have about 80+gb of music on my pc. Nowadays my main listening device is my Iphone which is not high end but its okay when you use a decent set of headphone it does the job. By decent I mean expensive.

I can listen to most things. Top of the pile would be anything with good guitar playing. Santana, pink floyd. But anything will do except maybe opera I will leave that to Stephen . I even like a bit of country tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts etc.

I'm a lot younger than I feel


Country music is my wife's passion and to a certain extent it has rubbed off on me. I'm not talking about the older "Country and Western" stuff but the artists like those you mentioned. Her particular favourites are George Strait, Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban.


Personally I like a bit of Shania Twain
