    I liek Air Supply :p ;)

    Really just kidding! 8-}

    I prefer to listen to Classical music and Jazz. But I also am an old time punker from the early 80s [much different from what is "Goth" today] and I like real rock - Zeppelin and old Tom Petty [none of this "Don't come around here no more" junk].

    I think the KISS song "I was made for lovin' you" ISN'T disco. [face_beatup] to anyone who says otherwise [face_talk_hand] [face_not_talking] [face_monkey]

    Megadeth > Metallica anyday of the week.

    And I do admit it, I loved the nightlife, I love to boogie! On the disco floor! Oh Yeah! [face_dancing]

    Ahhhhhhhhhh a thread I can enjoy! Actually been playing guitar since I was in 6th grade, in the middle of writing songs as we speak...Does anyone else out there, play and write?

    My Major Influences:

    Guns N Roses
    Stevie Ray Vaughan
    and basically all 80s hair bands

    I cant stand country, rap, and death metal.

    Best concert Ive ever been to: Close one, Greenday about 6 years ago in Fort Mill,
    or Cinderella/Poison about 5 years ago in charlotte......

    I dont really listen to much newer music these days, it all sound the same. Something new has got to give here sooner or later....

    The best concert I ever went to was Pink Floyd, back in the early 90's on their Division Bell Tour. I've seen Metallica 12 times, The Grateful Dead 8 times, Kiss 6 times and Clutch 6 times.

    HanSolo485 If you are tired of music that sounds the same you need to check out some of the bands on my Favorite Bands list. These are awesome bands that get virtually no airplay on the radio.

    Yup, Megadeth > Metallica.

    I won't list my tastes in music as I'm sick of being ridiculed because of it. But I do have a Juliana Theory tattoo if that tells you anything.

    "With a purposeful grimace
    and a terrible smell
    he pulls the spinning high tension wire

    Helpless people on subway trains
    scream for God as
    he looks in on them."

    I can play this on guitar!

    Of all the people out there who should have an iPod I am probably one of them because I like such varied music and like a song here and a song there from different bands.

    I will say this . . . there was a band from the 80s called Paul King and the Kings - very New Wave. I absolutely loved a few of the songs but it was impossible to find. I happened upon "Paul King's Greatest Hits" on ebay for $25.00 Buy It Now and I snapped that baby up in a heart beat!

    It takes alot for me to actually buy a CD. I think I can name the ones I've bought in the past five years:

    KISS - Greatest Hits
    Paul King
    Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffeti

    Alright, had an awesome time at the show on Thursday night. The opening band, The Horrorpops were pretty good and the Rev. was great as usual. I stuck around after the show and got the guys in Reverend Horton Heat to sign a poster for me. I took a bunch of pictures and I will get them posted here as soon as I can.

    Whoa! Your 80's list sounds just like mine! Of course between working a bit in radio and college radio, I was surrounded by all that!! So you were into Goth I take it? I also liked bands like New Order, The Cure and Depeche Mode. Now I'm more into stuff like Our Lady Peace (from Canada) with thier hard edged sound, to the etheral sounds of bands like Troika and Enya. Of course oldies but goodies still rock in my opinion like INXS, Rush, Fleetwood Mac and some GnR. Also love Stevie Ray Vaugh that Han mentioned. Different musical frequenices for different 'mental frequencies' if ya know what I mean!

    Trying to remember 'best concert'..Been to many...Probably RUSH's ROLL THE BONES tour 91 in at the Spectrum (Philadelphia,PA) or else RUSH's Moving Pictures tour...toss up!! Those Canadian boys can rock, eh???!!!

    I was a "goth" back in the mid 80s. I had the blue/black mohawk that I did up Siouxsie style and my skin was so pale I had to use white makeup and baby powder. I had naturally long nails and I painted them black and then made designs on them with red or white nail polish using a pin.

    I had this awesome grey lipstick. It was a gun metal grey, not silver.

    I used to go to this club in Long Island across from Republic Airport called Spize. Good times! Ministry played there a few times.

    Whoa! I must confess my "blue hair" days myself! It only lasted for less than a year, alas! Short and punky gave way to long and funky once again as far as hair went. It just wasn't "me". Anyway you have any pictures of yourself then? Used to be a "club rat" myself for awhile at places like The Roxxy and THe Melody in New Brunswick, NJ and some places on South Street in Philadelphia. Ahhhh....remember those spandex days??? 8-}

    You know what is really sad. Jedi_528 gave TK-2970 a CD of John Williams conducting the Skywalker Symphony in a selection of SW music. [Her giving TK-2970 the CD isn't the sad part. In fact, it's rather nice ;) :D] What is sad is that my first reaction was "this is the London Symphony". [face_plain]

    my taste in music varies, I don't have one particular sound that I enjoy more than another except for country, everything is better than country. dont like it! never have probably never will. I listen to movie soundtracts, to psychobilly, to straight punk and hardcore, emo, 80's, synthpop, techno, ska, metal, and classical.

    I love
    Demon Hunter
    Joy Electric
    Becoming the Archetype
    Wang Chung
    Flock of Seagulls
    Stray Cats
    Billy Joel
    the Toasters
    The Aquabats
    Voodoo Glow Skulls
    Five Iron Frenzy
    Value Pac
    Ghoti Hook
    Tiger Army
    just tons and tons of music that would lead to probably filling a page of music.

    Hey Mike, nice to see you stopped by. Grab a recliner, kick back, put your feet up, relax and have a good time. [face_peace]

    P.S.-since you stated that you like Psychobilly I figure you might be into [link=]The Reverend Horton Heat[/link]. If you are we should go to a show some time. A few other bands that fall into that same category are...

    [link=]Southern Culture On The Skids[/link]
    [link=]Th Legendary Shack*Shakers[/link]

    you might want to check them out...

    Hmmm, it's interesting that so many Star Wars fans are also fans of 80's hair metal. I'm in the same boat. Star Wars eventually influenced me to open my own comic/toys/games store, The Comic Monstore in Salisbury. And 80's hair metal influenced me to be in my current band, The Graveyard Boulevard (

    And yes, Megadeth > Metallica !
