Classic Rock, Country Rock and Classic Heavy Metal for me usually.
There are some aspects of Rock I do not like though - G'n'R, Bon Jovi and The Beatles for starters, words cannot express how much I dislike them.
+1 for classic rock.
Another +1 for not liking the beatles. The rolling stones (paint it black excluded) are another band I don't get the hype for
You sir, are sadly lacking in your education. However, see as you are only young, it can be excused to a certain extent. Perhaps myself and a few other members can help you in that respect.
Ooh, I'm going to be controversial and say that I love the Beatles .
That said, I've never got into G n R (and I did try because there was this beautiful redhead at school who I was wildly in love with who was in to them) but me and G'n'R just never managed to get on.
The best thing Ringo Starr did was narrate Thomas the Tank Engine
MattE2010 said:I forgot Prog Rock for my list too.
As for favourite bands? In order: Eagles (by a mile), Led Zepp, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, The Who, Eric Clapton, Deep Purple, The Jam.
Favourite musicians? Neil Peart, Joe Walsh, John Entwistle, Rob Halford, Bruce Dickinson.
You mentioned Neil Peart without mentioning Rush! 2112 is one of my all time favourite albums.
I don't like Genesis' later work either, after And Then There Was Three it went downhill alarmingly fast. They were utter rubbish after that point.
I'm glad the OP has discovered the wonders of Nightwish, they're my favourite symphonic metal band and indeed my favourite band out of the "modern" metal scene. My three favourite bands are Nightwish, Iron Maiden and Jethro Tull, so it's clear to see that my tastes fall broadly into the categories of power/folk metal, seventies and eighties classic rock and metal, and folk and folk-rock.
Music with serious bollocks, a great deal of technical skill and preferably the odd song about dragons and great quests. Dio and Satriani are my gods.
Jethro Tull was an agricultrualist who invented the seed drill in 1701. The present day Jethro Tull is, despite the popular misconception, not a singular person but the whole band. Although the misconception has not been helped in recent years as the title "Jethro Tull" has essentially been bestowed on Ian Anderson, the bands' principal icon, and a changing array of various hired hands who have suited his projects at the time. And the lineup has never been particularly stable beyond Mr. Anderson himself and guitarist Martin Barre.Who actually is Jethro Tull? I only have heard of "Cheap Day Return" and you wonder why...time for Spotify!
