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.
Very early Black Sabath - "The Wizard" is awesome.
AC/DC - Their stuff with hard bass lines and precussion like "Sin City" and "Livewire".
B.B. King
Jeff Beck - Wired and Blow By Blow
Steve Vai
Eric Johnson

......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!

What a variety of music.
I could go on for hours because I used to be a D.J. at night clubs and bars.
So, my music choices would be all over the board.

Fleetwood Mac
Tom Petty
Tool (agree with Hemi,between the bass and the drummer an awesome combo next to my next talented entry below)
Phil Vassar
Keith urban
Kenny Chesney (country side of Jimmy Buffett..but him too)
Old school dance music:
Stevie B
The Cover Girls
Rob base and d.j ez rock (it takes 2).. of course, that's before rap got into guns and drugs.
how about... Rapper's Delight?
Then I could go into the Hair bands.
Motley crue
can't forget Dio
Then of course.
Eric Johnson (cliffs of dover)
Joe Satriani
Then slow things down a bit
Tangerine Dream
Horsepower: How hard you hit the wall
Torque: How far you take the wall with you

Just to name a few:
Thin Lizzy. The most underrated band of all time.
Steve Vai
Yngwie Malmsteen
Joe Satriani
Eric Johnson
Guy Mann Dude
Jeff Beck
Any band Eddie Van Halen, Zakk Wylde, George Lynch, or Paul Gilbert is a member of.

btw, another legend passed away Thursday. RIP Keith Emerson. Founder of Emerson, Lake, and Palmer
(First 5 min. is all Keith. The last 4 min. is his monstrous 1968 keyboard. The birth of the keyboard/moog)
