Led Zepplin - Plant is the official voice or all rock-n-roll.
Allman Bro.s
Tool - LOVE the 5 string bass and serious precussion.
Steely Dan
Deep Purple "Smoke on the water" - least fav. / "Lazy" - fav.
Van Halen
Spyra Gyra
Sound Garden
Kings of Leon
Stevie Ray Vaughn
ZZ Top - Degquello and earlier. Eliminator and newer got too "disco" for me.
Supertramp - "School" is responsible for me becoming an audiophile/audio freek.
311 - their least rappy stuff anyway
Aerosmith - nothing after Toys In the Attic. Their talent went south after that.
Eagles
Very early Black Sabath - "The Wizard" is awesome.
AC/DC - Their stuff with hard bass lines and precussion like "Sin City" and "Livewire".
Clapton
B.B. King
Jeff Beck - Wired and Blow By Blow
Steve Vai
Eric Johnson
Satrianai

......and many, many more!

Never got into the "Big Hair" 80's/90's stuff like Posion or White Snake.

Very small doses of Willy Nelson and or Johny Cash is as country as I can go.

ABSOLUTELY NO rap / hip-hop ghetto $#l+! I'd rather hear finger nails on a chalk board!

Sound system in my work shop:
Home built 3 way (tri-amped) speakers that consist of JBL 2242's (18"), JBL 2206's (12" mids) and Gauss 1502 tweeters.
Amplification consists of a Crown Macro Tech 2400 for the 18's, Crown Micro Tech 600 for the mids and a Hafler DH 200 for the tweets. Sound processors are a Rane AC23 corssover and an Alesis 32 band EQ. Yes I like feeling my pant legs shake on deep bass notes and kick drum beats. A saying heard often in my shop is "It's not loud, it's realistic!" Plus I like hearing my music over my routers and saws!

2 fantastic tunes when they were on Letterman:

One of the biggest rock-n-roll bands celebrates a birthday today.

Kids today are raised on cellphones. In 1986, I was Raised On Radio!
