What does this mean, Doc? Am I schizophrenic?

METALLICA, JIMMY BUFFET, THE OUTFIELD!

Also Clapton, Van Morrison, AC/DC, **** Yankees, Nugent, Merle Haggard, The Stones,
Dr. John, John Lee Hooker, Nightranger(?!), Low & Sweet Orchestra (obscure, but cool pop Hooks), Prince, Robert Cray, Louis Armstrong, Harry Connick Jr., Toad T.W.S., Whitesnake.

That's what is in my CD case today. I rotate through a lot of CD's, but I ALWAYS have the first three at arms length.

Needless to say, My co-workers can't figure me out!

Depends on what mood youre going for -
I loved This Mortal Coil and Dokken. For a while in there it was Bad Brains and Screaming Trees. For relaxing, I love Bob Dylan, Nat King Cole and Ella Fitzgerald. I miss my They Might be Giants - I wore out the tape and can't find the CD...I have to admit I like the Cowboy Junkies, Dixie Chicks.

Pecan the cat loves Frank Sinatra--she will come running up to the speakers and stares as he sings; on the other hand Leanne Rimes makes her flee from the room (as did our guests singing happy birthday the other morning...

Eric Dolphy and Charles Mingus are jazz musicians. Dolphy plays sax and other reed instruments and Mingus plays the bass. Dolphy played with a lot of greats--Trane, Andrew Hill, Oliver Nelson. So has Mingus...I think they might have even played together. They both have some great albums according to the Penguin Guide to Jazz.

Who is Rusted Root? I like This Mortal Coil; had a copied tape, don't know what album.
post #12 of 46
Rusted Root is a band out of Pittsburgh, they usually get pigeon-holed as "world beat"; African influences, lots of percussion. One song of theirs did get some radio play, called "Send Me On My Way".

Most anything except country, rap, and hip-hop. Some of my favorites right now are Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Big Bad Vodoo Daddy, KMFDM, Front 242, Orbital, Orb, Pink Floyd, Tony Bennett, Peter Gaberial (sp?), Alice in Chains, and Mighty mighty Bosstones. But these are only a few.

chrose, I've been playing guitar for about 17 years now. I was going to do a restuarant based on the better side of metal and rock n roll, not saying the name cause it still might happen.

chrose, those 2 are some of my all time favorate bands. My all time favorate band has to be Black Sabbath.
I have lots of friends in bands all over the place. Some goods frineds, indeed. But, I don't care about all that fame bull$%^& anymore. I was in one good band at one time and they went on to be a big band. I know am a better cook then I am a musician. I never regret pulling the plug on it all, because I would've probably ended up like all those other lost souls, ether dead from an overdose or working in the pool cleaning business.

Hay, everyone. Nice to see so many different asspects on music. I love music as much as I love cooking. Nothing is more relaxing then listening to Pennywise after a hard days work. Watch some tube?! No way!!
Today was my last day at work, and I have a week to decide if I want to renew my contract. I think I will. I really don't want to move anywhere, right now. I'm listening to NOFX right now and I'm heading to the beach tonight to go surf a little. You reap what you sow, right?

Oh,I just thought of something.
In the kitchen I've been working at a few years we don't listen to any music at all.
We have a T.V.(Satelite and all) on the end of the line by a small table where others come to visit for coffee and B.S. I know this is kinda off thread but I get to watch
the tube a little in the afternoon to keep up on current events and check out dragracing
from time to time.It keeps us happy.

OK My 2 cents:

Favorite groups: Train, They Might Be Giants, and Stone Temple Pilots.

for those of you who like modern/alter. rock.. check out this site: www.wrax.com It is the local station here. BUT it is the top rated alternative station in the country. The station manager was just listed in Rolling Stone as being in the top 20 most influential people in Rock. Bands have been coming here to get "discovered" The benefit is that we get to know the music and people of a band long before the rest of the country. I have seen Train, Matchbox 20, Bare Naked Ladies, Tool, Fuel, etc. etc. in crowds of 30 - 100. Ive met many of them. Train and matchbox 20 say that this is their new home...So they will come and play small crowds often with no advance notice and for free even.

Right now if you dont have Lifehouse's CD you are really missing out! They are SO great.

Just to show how eclectic I am my last trip to the used CD store I got:

Elvis
Miles Davis
Lifehouse
No Doubt
Lynard Skynards Greatest Hits

Im all over the map!
