What are you listening to/fav type of music

John Mann, the lead singer of Spirit of the West has been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease.  During their farewell tour last year, despite his iPad with the lyrics, he got lost at the beginning of "Home for a Rest".  So the audience gave him a hand.



Best album to play right now.  Love it!

I wish I was with them again.

Late to the party for "Hamilton". 

As Ben Brantley wrote in the New York Times, "I am loath to tell people to mortgage their houses and lease their children to acquire tickets to a hit Broadway show. But “Hamilton,” directed by Thomas Kail and starring Mr. Miranda, might just about be worth it..."


Let me tell you what I wish I'd known
When I was young and dreamed of glory
You have no control

Who lives, who dies, who tells your story?
Even videos of the songs on the link. Take that, millennials!


10 Bad Songs that Prove Gen X’s Superiority Over Millennials

The generation gap between Gen X and millennials is not wide enough. In the interest of full disclosure, and to provide some context for my opening sentence, I don’t want millennials on the sidewalk in front of my house, much less on my lawn. This means, of course, no gap is going to be wide enough to assuage my growing need to be cranky.

To be fair, I’m not the only person who feels this way. In fact, I have friends who are technically millennials but who openly bristle whenever I point that out. One of the many reasons that those of us who are Gen X (or who wish that they were Gen X) feel this way is because of the mostly terrible music foisted on society by millennials.

That’s not to say that we Gen Xers didn’t have our own share of bad music. But our bad music was and remains awesome. To prove that, I’ve listed the top ten bad Gen X songs that are better than almost anything made during the millennials’ reign of terror.

(Note: I’m defining Gen X as music released from about the time Gen Xers first entered high school, around 1980, to the year the last of Gen X was graduating high school, around 1998 – while those dates are somewhat debatable, most people will generally agree, I think.)

10. "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm"
Gen X bands don’t even need words in their song’s chorus. The succinct “Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm” from the awesomely named Crash Test Dummies is an earworm in a way that millennials' auto tuning can never compete with.

9. "Informer"
Long before Justin Bieber, we in Gen X had our own white Canadian guilty of excessive cultural appropriation. So guilty, in fact, that most of us didn’t know that Snow was white until we watched the video.

8. "Gonna Make You Sweat"
C+C Music Factory didn’t politely ask us to dance; they ordered us to dance. And Gen X obeyed. The delicate little buttercups of the latest generation would demand a trigger warning if “Gonna Make You Sweat” had been recorded under their sensitive watch.

7. "Everything About You"
Millennial SJWs wouldn’t be able to plaster enough Coexist stickers on their hybrid cars to make up for the level of hostility in “Everything About You.” Ugly Kid Joe doesn’t accept anything about “you” and worse (or better), the band is gleeful about their intolerance.

6. "I’m Too Sexy"
I feel badly that the closest millennials can get to Right Said Fred’s campy masterpiece is LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It.”

5. "The Final Countdown"
For Gen X, irony was a word that only ever showed up on English quizzes. That allowed us to embrace bombast and earnestness. And few songs in the history of music approach the glorious bombast and earnestness of “The Final Countdown.” The band Europe was cool because they didn’t pretend to be cool. The closest millennials have gotten to such a wonderful lack of self-awareness has been Coldplay, and Chris Martin is totally self-aware.

4. "Never Gonna Give You Up"
The best internet prank and meme that millennials have been able to manufacture is completely dependent on the goofy awesomeness of Rick Astley. To put it another way, Gen X tricked millennials into rickrolling themselves.

3. "We Built This City"
Grace Slick and Jefferson Airplane are Baby Boomer icons. Grace Slick and Jefferson Starship, however, produced one of the most loathed Gen X songs of all time. Or rather, if people are being honest, “We Built This City” is a song that people love to pretend to loathe. By way of contrast, everyone truly despises everything produced by Madonna post-"Ray of Light."

2. "Ice Ice Baby"
No matter how many one-hit wonders they churn out, no matter how many cringe-worthy celebrities they coronate, millennials will never top the irresistible and confused mess named Vanilla Ice. His magnum opus, “Ice Ice Baby,” is still causing people to check out his hooks while his DJ revolves it.

Need further proof? In the song, Vanilla Ice raps about cooking a pound of bacon. That’s right, bacon. Checkmate, millennials.

1. "My Heart Will Go On"
The swan song of Gen X, “My Heart Will Go On,” is the quintessential bad song. It’s so bad, it’s circled back around to good. Millennials are way too self-conscious to ever produce something so bad that it’s good.
The Living Hour, a band that's made up largely of my old camp counsellors, atmospheric, heavily overproduced dream-pop. Also, MIA, one of my guilty pleasures, dropped a new song recently, and I've been enjoying that.

also I've been indulging my love for super-duper eclectic sub-sub-genres with Aro The Jew's 80s-inspired syth-pop covers of traditional synagogue tunes, which I didn't expect to like but which are weirdly really good. If you're interested you can find him on Soundcloud.

I'm in the Stramash Army!

Dark Lochnagar

Tom Paine's Bones
Anything that is either speed metal, death metal or black metal. Every once in a while I'll listen to rap or dubstep.
OMG, I'm getting addicted to this stuff:


And they are also special guest for the Red Hot Chilli Peppers UK tour. Will Albion still rule  the waves after exposure to that?  ;D
I'm all about country music!  8)
I really enjoy Brett Kissel and Thomas Rhett  :)

Although mostly forgotten today, I never heard a better country singer than Webb Pierce.

Slayer,Pantera,Megadeth,Metallica,Iron Maiden and most other Metal except most of the European stuff.
