Favorite Artists

  1. Oasis (2)

    Impossible to encapsulate Oasis in just a few words. Did a lengthy description under "Artist"; Here, I will just say, the best song, in my opinion, that captures Oasis' essence, the most..."Some Might Say"!! Hands Down!

  2. 2

    INXS

    INXS

    Will always be associated with capturing a decade (the 80's), even though "Suicide Blonde" 1990! Michael Hutchence one of a kind; can't capture that voice, that charisma...quieted much too soon. R.I.P.

  3. The Jesus And Mary Chain

    I've only recently heard, thanks to pandora radio!!! I was around, but I guess was too busy listening to The Black Crowes & The Cult at the time. Plus, I think you would've had to be listening to underground radio to have heard them. However, this Band is a Powerhouse of Sound and influence on bands that followed!! For me, I'm reminded of The Ramones & Phil Spector, with a little bit of The Velvet Underground and, maybe, even The New York Dolls. Add an "Oasis" of fuzz & distortion & The Jesus and Mary Chain are one of the best rock experiences you'll ever hear (Best Played Loud)!!!! For 2 brothers from Scotland, Jim & William Reid, who really didn't seem to be very sure at all of what they were doing, their confidence, however, pre-dated Liam & Noel Gallagher by a decade! Alan McGee, the genius behind Creation Records signed J&M Chain, too & is quoted as saying "they're either the best or worst band I've ever heard!!" And, while I don't seem to have a very strong memory of having heard them at the time, once I heard "Head On" I looooooved it & them, instantly & there was "something" familiar about it. Best to listen to live recordings, i.e. on Strange Fruit label/BBC, Live at Trinity & Sheffield (2 concerts/1 CD) & same label, The Complete John Peel Sessions.

  4. Garbage

    SHIRLEY MANSON one of best rock voices of all time, male or female!!! Right up there with Joan Jett, Ann Wilson, Chrissie Hynde, Annie Lennox, & Patty Smyth, of Scandal!! And, this band actually looks like they enjoy themselves...I really like that, throughout the 90's; a nice change. Even with pretty heavy lyrics, Shirley smiles (& I think that helps balance those heavy lyrics) & really gives to her fans!! They all do!! Duke Erikson, Butch Vig & Steve Marker...GREAT BAND, who defy categorization! What's the hold-up Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?? Induct 'em already!! (P.S. Great new music just released 6/2016: "Strange Little Birds"!! Classic, but also fresh, vital & viable Garbage sound; they've accomplished what must be the bane of a lot of musicians...sounding like themselves without every song sounding like the last - Kudo's Garbage on a job well-done & an outstanding career...so hard to believe it's been 20 years!)

  5. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

    Have been familiar with "Spectre At The Feast" for several years; wasn't until I heard songs from "Baby 81' that I've been blown away by BRMC!!!

  6. The Black Box Revelation

    Hard to believe it's 2 guy's making this much music!!! Love 'em!

  7. Jet (2)

    Have every CD made & "Family Style" DVD...BEST GARAGE ROCK IN DECADES!!! Only band to replace AC/DC for me for car-driving music! Forlorn they split, but hope they'll reform, even if they only do the Aussie band thing! They're too talented to just stop. Update: December 2016. They're reforming in 2017 & opening for Bruce Springsteen, among others, on Australian tours. While I hoped this meant they would reform & restart, this doesn't sound like that, and if you listen to the lyrics on "Shaka Rock", it sounds like L.A., ("lving in the USA") wasn't all that it was cracked up to be & that they missed Australia...Still; one can hope!

  8. Mando Diao

    Garage/punk/rock lives on!!!!! Hurray for the Swedish....they seem to be the rockers of the new millenium!!! Just heard Mando Diao today & bought their 2nd CD, "Hurricane Bar"...liked 'em THAT much, immediately!!!

  9. Bryan Adams

    "Summer of '69" (off compilation "So Far...So Good") favorite car song on 1st warm, sunny day...it makes summer official for me!! And, it's the only time I don't usually have (formerly) AC/DC on in car & (currently) Jet. Only for Bryan Adams!!

  10. Social Distortion

    Love that somehow Social Distortion blended punk with rockabilly & rocked it!!!! Social D. the "real deal" with punk...more than lots of 1st wave punk. These guys lived it & they updated it from Elvis Presley & Johnny Cash & brought it from visions of old 50's tv shows with dangerous characters loitering in & outside of pool halls & brought it into the 90's & straight to us, unfiltered!!! The look, sound & stage prescence! Epomonius lp/cd: "White Light, White Trash, White Heat" (but I love "Live At The Roxy"!

  11. Beady Eye

    Ya gave it up too soon, Liam!!! "Different Gear, Still Speeding" was what you do best...should've stuck with that producer. I still fear ya may end up another rock & roll casualty. You NEED to sing!!!!

  12. 17

    Suede

  13. Lenny Kravitz

    Another "GO TO"!!!

  14. The Animals

    Along with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones (of course), they were a very young girl's introduction to the harder side of rock & that was it for me; from then on....blues-rock & hard rock..Their "House Of The Rising Sun" just may be the best (song) ever!!!

  15. Catfish And The Bottlemen

    Brilliant debut..."The Balcony"!!!! So happy for these guys; been following them since 2014. Have seen perform on countless late-night shows here in U.S., caught footage of them @ festivals in Europe, ever moving forward to main stages. Have heard interviews & hope success doesn't totally ruin them. Van McCann, guitarist, lead vocals: effervescent interviews with no "star" attitude!!! Lots of ambition, but seem well-grounded & that they'll scale the heights with aplomb!
