Music through the age groups
I know we have done the songs to cruise by thing, but what about the music by age group, there are many members here, aged from 14 to late 60's. So what have been your favourite bands/groups/singers/ the ones that have stood out over the years.
I remember the punk rock stage, and I still listen to some of it, Johnny Rotten etc. the heavy metal era, the Queen era, the alternative music our parents hated era. Reggae, the good stuff, I also still like J Croce, R Whittaker and J Denvor, but also like Def Leppard, Metallica and Guns and Roses, there again, I also like female vocals, Celine Dion, Joan Baez, Tracy Chapman, 4 non blondes, Cher, Joan Armatrading, Pat Benator, and Dolly Parton.
Eddie Grant and Bob Marley were the best of reggae, to me at least.
What about the rest of you, don't be shy, you may be surprised at who else enjoys the type of music you enjoy. There is no award for listening to the kewlest musis...............
I am a good ole Southern Boy.........
I saw Lynard Skynard live before the crash........
FreeBird is a Southern National Anthem..........
Any 60's or early 70's Motown or soul music - before they all turned into cabaret acts , Jazz/funk - Herbie Hanc0ck , Ronnie Laws,Donald Byrd , Eddie Harris , Ohio Players etc, 80's electro - Softcell , Cabaret Voltaire, Kraftwerk ,Human League etc, more recently - The Orb , Radiohead , Cafe del Mar type stuff , trance electro .
One of my all time favourite albums is Headhunters by Herbie Hanc0ck , still sounds as fresh today as it did when I first bought it almost 30 yrs ago .
LOL had to edit the o's into 0's to clear the censor :)
Leon Redbone, Jim Croce, Don McClean etc, etc................Real music
Being I`m 29, I`ll say this. I grew up in the country, pretty much isolated, my father only listens to country, he thought I would do the same, but my older brother, who`s 10 years older than I am, was into rock and roll, especially Kiss. he and I were very close, so I followed his lead, and I got into Kiss when i was around 5, he had a small income around 15 years of age, and would spend it on LP`s, I remember when he brought home the first Van Halen LP, and it blew me completely away, never heard anything like that, he got me into other groups as well, Queen, Boston, Kansas, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Lynyrd Skynyrd just to name a few. the 80`s had a big impact on me, since I grew up in the 80`s, and I still have all the 80`s music and classic rock stuff. the last band in my opinion that was any good was Nirvana. music today, like britney spears, shania twain, isn`t something I can see myself getting into, since they didn`t write there own material, and they didn`t play a instrument on it goes to show when you got looks and a body you can sell 15 million albums and it don`t require any talent what so ever to do it. sad.
Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, early Black Sabbath, Steppenwolf, Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Black Oak Arkansas, Allman Bros., Marshall Tucker Band, Charlie Daniels Band, Yes, Uriah Heep, early Deep Purple, Scorpions, Robin Trower, Cream, Jethro Tull, Foghat, Stevie Ray Vaughn, BB King, Susan Tedeschi, Patsy Cline, Metallica, Incubus, The Chieftans..................

I'm in with Stitch, Poncho, and Hippie.
Anything from 1930 til 1960 as long as it rocks, rolls, jumps, swings or boogies and you can understand the words.
So here's a few names
Nat .... ....
Big Joe ......
If you can fill in any more than 5 surnames you're as sad an old git as I am.
Music from Alberta, picked it up in about 1982, rather a lot of fuss
was made over it.
I like those groups that "Hippie" posted...it must be a generations thing?
I also like country-western, the old-school stuff, and Bluegrass.
My sons have force-fed me "Hip-Hop" and "Rap"...after I got over the shock of the language, I found that some of them tell some sad stories like old country music. I got used to it...being a dad, if I say i hate something, they'll just play more of it. I also have an older nephew that started rattling the plaster when he moved in listening to "Metallica" and newer "Metal". Got usd to that too.
I listen to Native stuff like Pow-Wow music...its sweet revenge!
Static x,korn,seether,saliva.the new alternative i think is really good.country is to depressing.im not saying its bad it depresses me.
Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Mike Ness, Charile Daniels Band, Hank Williams Sr, The Carter Family
Sex Pistols, Rancid, Kmfdm, The sisters of Mercy, Nick Cave, Black Flag, Rollins Band, Audio Bully's, Gary Numan, Pretty much anything pop from he 80's, Punk in general, oh..yeah Social Distortion.
Everything listed above. The influence never stops growing. I do tend to try away from the radio bands from this era though.
i've said it before and i will say it again - if you want to listen to good music no matter what mood you are in...
I am 19, i never got to see them, and i grew up listening to their cds every dam day of my life.
the thing that gets me about it is, unlike other groups where i get tired of a song if i listen to it too many times i get bored with it -
Zeppelin is fresh everytime i play it.
