I listen to a diversified selection of obscure old and new music of all Genre. In short I am a life long music snob.

I have said this many times I don't think any of you believes me but when you live in Philadelphia you bleed music.

60's rock, 80's rock, musical theater and (if the wife is playing music on her computer) J-pop.

I listen to almost anything. Pop-wise I love the prog rock of the 70s and the rebirth of the guitar in the 90s. Lyrically, Leonard Cohen and U2 have a special status for me. I'm wearying of blues, but a lot of 50s-60s-70s Jazz has taken its place on my listening lists.

I love classical music, but I need to change my life to listen to more. We've settled into a 2-3 minute space for everything, and a string quartet or symphony doesn't fit into the modern pattern, I'm afraid.

Nonetheless, nothing continues to move me like Brahms' Fourth Symphony. There is something very deep in that music, and it never fails to elicit a very strong reaction.

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Timeless rock: The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Who (My "holy trinity")

Classical: mainly Russian with Rachmaninov my favorite. His Vespers is beautiful.

Blues: Old school real blues: Howlin' Wolf, Leadbelly, Blind Lemon Jefferson, etc.

Other rock: Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Dream Theater, Within Temptation, Moody Blues, Alan Parsons Project, The Scorpions - especially their newer stuff, Blue Oyster Cult, Linkin Park, Coldplay, Nightwish, Blackmore's Night, Rainbow, The Doors, CCR, Terry Reid, Dropkick Murphys, U2, Led Zeppelin. I have a strong bias to British bands but not a huge Rolling Stones fan).

Folk artists: Eric Bogle, Peter, Paul, and Mary, Arlo Guthrie, Woody Guthrie, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan

Sacred: Eastern Orthodox Christian Byzantine Chant, Gregorian Chant, Black Gospel

Hard to categorize: Daniel Lanois, Alison Krauss, Diana Krall ,Paul Simon (love S&G of course but Simon's Graceland period is off the charts splendid)

Celtic/Irish: Loreena McKennitt, Clannadh, Enya, The Chieftains, really, just about anything Irish, Celtic, Gaelic!

Traditional Italian music especially the old songs from southern Italy and Sicily (Sinatra need not apply LOL)

I LOVE Indian ragas (Thank you Ravi Shankar. May his memory be eternal)

Big Bluegrass fan (obvious because of the close ties to Irish and Scottish music) BTW I need to add a pet peeve that I really hate it when people lump Bluegrass and Country into the same category. They are distinctly different genres. Ironically, it's Americans that tend to make this mistake while here in the EU people know the difference. (Note: I am American)

I am a pianist/keyboardist so I want to list a few favorites here from the rock genre: Kevin Moore, Keith Emerson, Martijn Spierenberg, Rick Wakeman, Dennis DeYoung, Elton John, Derek Sherinian, Jordan Rudess.

Favorite guitarists: Joe Satriani, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Lang, Jeff Healy, Stevie Ray Vaughn, George Harrison, David Gilmour, Django Reinhardt, Andres Segovia, Carl Perkins, Michael Hedges
Bass: Paul McCartney, John Entwistle, Jaco Pastorius, Chris Squire
Drummers: Neil Peart, Carl Palmer, Ringo Starr, Mike Portnoy
Rock vocals: Brad Delp, Geoff Tate, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, John Fogerty, Dana Fuchs, Ann Wilson, Amy Lee, Sharon den Adel

I listen to some Jazz - mostly Cool Jazz. That said, I like some of Stan Kenton's (at the time) experimental stuff.

Music I STRONGLY dislike: Country, Dutch folk music - it's either "oompah" stuff or else smarmy, overly sentimental pap. Hip Hop, Techno, House, and any type of music that feels automated.

Finally, the two rock acts I cannot stand, do not listen to, and in fact would rather listen to 10 straight hours of the music I strongly dislike than 1 minute of: AC/DC and Ted Nugent. BLECHHH!!!!

Currently listening to a lot of Mahler and going through the the Murray Perahia Collected Mozart Piano Concertos.

On vinyl of course. The only way to listen to recorded music.

Ah, Mahler. He had such interesting ideas about symphonic form.

Since I got saved I mainly listen to Christian metal, rock and worship music.

Metal examples: Demon Hunter, August Burns Red, Living Sacrifice

Rock examples: Third Day, Old Man Shattered, Kutless, RED

Worship: Chris Tomlin, etc...

Once in a while I go down memory lane and listen to some of the really musically good bands of yesteryear that I grew up on, but then the message bugs me and I let it go.

Secular music I've listened to lately- as in, the last few years: Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Rainbow

But I also like music with no real message like classical, some jazz and big band, music from Cirque du Soleil

Some country- but not too much really.

Old school blues

Rock on my magic brothers! (and sisters!) Smile

I was playing Mahler when my girlfriend walked in and said it reminded her of movie music. (she knows nothing about classical music). I said, exactly; where do you think the movie guys got all their stuff.

If you're a Christian band who likes oldschool metal, you're probably familiar with some if these guys, but if not, you'd probably like them:

Barren Cross
Sacred Reich
Saint
