Not a fan myself, although they're not bad, I guess.



Wait... What? I'm not believing these words you wrote...

Just kidding...

To each his or her own...

...except that woman who years ago told me she loved jazz, "...but not John Coltrane's 'kind if jazz'..."

Hate to say it, but that pretty much describes my taste in jazz, being more a fan of the swing era than the bebop that followed.

Still:
King Crimson

I see they've started booking Eastern US for Autumn of '19

(NY and Chi in Sept .. Hmmm... Cleveland is in between)



BTW, Yes they booked in Cle in Sept, and I got a ticket (that's all I want, not tag-a-longs)

I think I mentioned this before

Not really into fusion either. Sting was as far as I got with that, and that was only because I was into the Police as a teen.

Note, though, with that, as well as bebop, I’m certainly not dismissing the talent and musicianship, as I do give due where due is earned.

It’s just not what enslaves me when listening.

My cup of tea is Louis Armstrong. Go from there.

As for the OP question, well I suppose the Clash would be pretty much where it starts for me, growing up on punk and pretty much going through the 80s, 90s, and 00s listening to it and its influences (aka alternative rock).

But you can add many others to that genre for me... AntiFlag, Bad Religion, Descendants, Green Day, MxPx, NOFX, Ramones, Replacements, Rocket From the Crypt, Sick of it All, Social Distortion, Sum 41, Tossers, etc, etc, etc

Alternative: Police, Cars, New Order, U2, Angels & Airwaves...

Louis Armstrong for the jazz.

Beethoven for the classical piano, the ultimate chill out music, although Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Debussy, even Joplin is up there.

Aly & Fila for the trance/EDM.
