I've been a music lover all of my life. I confess to loving 80's music (I remember watching all the videos), but I also love more current rock. Even throw in some heavy metal. I find I just don't do country and hip-hop. I never got into them, but anything else (even chamber music) I enjoy.
My favs (but there are many):
- Rush (being Canadian and all)
- Chris Cornell (both solo and with Soundgarden)
- Bon Jovi
- early 90's grunge (Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Pearl Jam)
What's a must for me in a song are good vocals. And yes, Metallica does have good vocalists, for the type of music they are playing.
