    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!

    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)
    RUSH
    Megadeth
    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.
    Poison
    Motley crue
    can't forget Dio
    Scorpions
    Then of course.
    Eric Johnson (cliffs of dover)
    Joe Satriani
    Then slow things down a bit
    Sade
    Tangerine Dream

    20 years ago today, unplugged was released on CD. Could be considered one of their greatest (and unexpected) performances ever.

    His performance on Austin City Limits is one of his best. Not so sure of his outfit, but hey, it was the 80's :cool:

    btw, SRV's second appearance on the tv show was also one of his best... and in his home town nonetheless. He went all out, especially when one of his strings broke and the guitar was swapped out without missing a note. Classic.

    33 years ago today, this was recorded and it is still not legally available (legal wranglings)
    The Red Rocker and a Trans Am on stage was hard to beat in 1983. The following year, he couldn't drive 55. I mean, who can?

    Drag Racing and Rock-n-Roll have been connected from the beginning....kind of surprised that beyond a few one race sponsorships and personal appearances, there hasn't been greater participation by musicians.

    What could have been? https://youtu.be/8ClIALCuZnQ

    Zeppelin's drummer. Others I can recall that delved into drag racing were Travis Tritt, MC Hammer, and Joan Jett, and of course all the 60s hot rod songs from folks like the Beach Boys and Jan & Dean. For what it's worth, Dean's full name was Dean Ormsby Torrence, so I guess it's no wonder they sang hot rod music. ;)
