Kagan got me thinking. He seems to have a way with that! LOL I grew up during the late 60s and early 70s. I was going to concerts to see the Beatles (mostly only heard sreaming teen girls) Zeplin, Yes, The Who, Stones, Dead, Airplane, Doors, Fleetwood Mac, Boston, Cream, Boston, Cream, Santana, Van Halen, ZZ Top, Aerosmith, Journey, Traffic, Tull, Kinks, Buffalo Springfield, CCR, Guess Who, Steve Miller, Genisis, Pink Floyd, Elton John (my first date AND first concert) Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Deep Purple, Moody Blues, Mountian, Seeger and just about every "classic rock" band you can name.
Then there was some "glam" rock like Billy Idol, Wham, Bowie, and assorted others. Then there was some new rock like The Firm with Page and some younger guys, Huey Lewis, Dave Mathews etc.
Then came some new rock like The Police, Traveling Wilburys (made up with a bunch of my old favs) Queen, ELO (though is probably more classic rock) Blues Travelers, Fine Young Canibals, Simply Red (even some Boy George).
Then I added some New Country, George Straight, Tim McGraw, Tracy Lawrence, Dwight Yokum, and old country like Hank Williams and Jr, of course Willie, Waylon and the Boys.
Then there is the blues, Allman Bros, Robert Cray, Tracy Chapman and a whole host of others.
Then there is the how to classify. Bonnie Rait, Joan Jett, Heart, Joan Biaz, Eagles,Huey Lewis and the News, Michael Franti.
And there are probably another hundred or so we can name.
So where do our music tastes come from?
I think they come from wher our head and heart are at the particular point in time.
Who are your favs and why?
