“Acts 1:7”

Is it possible for all of us to hang out and get to know each other without the mudslinging? I'm starting to feel a bit disheartened by the condition of all the threads. I worry that I've let myself get drawn in to the wars. I don't want to become a mean person. I just want to know people.

I like to share music, maybe you could share some of your favorites. Maybe some jokes or just talk to each other like human beings.

Have you heard of the group Walela. It's Rita Coolidge, her sister and her niece. They make wonderful recordings. :)

You are one of the rare posters who really not only enjoys music, but enjoys sharing it. How long has music been one of your favorite pass-times?

I don't remember a time without it. My dad was a partyer and he loved putting on ACDC, Jethro Tull, Alan Parsons (and many others in the 70s era rock genre) and turning it up loud. I remember when I was 6 or 7, all year my dad taught me how to care for records and record players. For Christmas that year I got my very own. It was very exciting for me. My first albums were Disney classics (they weren't all classics at that time).

Great idea Dryad! Nice place you got here :-)

Tull and Alan Parsons! Do you also like other progressive rock like early Genesis, Pink Floyd, etc?

I could not live without music. That's probably why I got into the music biz for a few years. I remember my parents playing stuff like Sergio Mendes, Glen Miller, Mannheim Steamroller etc (they were both born in the 1920s)

My tastes have actually turned heavier as I get older, my favorite band is Dream Theater. They are heavily influenced by Rush, Genesis, etc, but can be as heavy as Metallica. They also are very versatile and write some beautiful "mellow" songs. Check this out and tell me what you think.

Nice idea:)
I'm mostly into rock music, Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, Rainbow, Meatloaf etc.
I also like sounds from yesteryear, the sixties and seventies.
Also quite like some classical pieces, my fave being Canon by Pachelbel (sp?) Beautiful music.
I absolutley hate Country and Western.

Of the Christian music selection, there isn't much to my taste but Delirious often hit the spot.

I'm a Bluegrass junkie..I have played banjo for over 30 years and used to travel professionally, which didn't last too long. But,,I do like classic rock and country at times. I also am a songwriter and have one bluegrass gospel song that was actually picked up and recorded by a professional bluegrass act. Today's music doesn't really do too much for me.

I'm not familiar with bluegrass Wayne. How does it compare to C and W?

I think its interesting how we all have such differing tastes in music.

Correct me if I am wrong Wayne, but doesn't bluegrass have its roots in Celtic music? It was my understanding that Irish, English, etc settlers brought their celtic music with them to the US and it evolved into bluegrass.

Bill Munroe, the "father of bluegrass" lived here in Indiana and started a Bluegrass festival, and there is even a country music theater which bares his name.

I appreciate the skill of bluegrass players, though i wouldn't call myself a fan. I do like Bela Fleck as far as banjo goes...

Well, if you like Rainbow, Jovi AND Meatloaf, you ought to check out a band called Kamelot. They are considered "classical metal" I guess would be the term. Melodic and heavy like Rainbow, but with the, uhm, how do I describe it...the theatrical side of Meatloaf. Like how Meatloaf is dramatic and epic? Kamelot puts a lot of that kind of quality into their music.

Absolutely! Genesis and Pink Floyd are favorites. Rush is great. I'm slowly building a CD replica of my dad's record collection - Cat Stevens, Yes, Queen, Moody Blues - just to name a few more. Alan Parsons Projest is my favorite of them all.

I can generally find jewels in any genre (except opera). I not big on the depressing lyrics of country but I'm a big fan of Randy Travis. There's a lot in "Christian Contemporary" that I enjoy (Toby Mac/DC Talk, Matt Redman are favorites). But what I listen to most is classic rock (late 70s very early 80s) and what Roadie referred to as Progressive Rock (didn't know it had a name).

I like bluegrass but I don't know any names. DO you have any favorites? Would Alison Krauss be bluegrass?

Apparently somebody has decided they don't like me and want to express that all over topix with the icons. That's ok, I'll just make peanut butter sandwiches.

Thanks for the links. The first one I liked but the second one was a little on the slow side for me. I like a heavy beat and catchy riff.
One of my all time favourites is The Final Countdown by Europe. Now that should be rereleased.

I shouldn't worry about it. We all get nasty icons from time to time.Little things please little minds.
