I love music - all sorts! I used to be a vinyl junkie but I used to do a bit of deejaying then so I had an excuse. Now I'm a CD junkie and I haven't got any excuses. I buy lots of different music (mostly on the cheap on Amazon or eBay) so it's not too financially painful! Looking through my collection I guess you could pick out my favourite artists as the ones I've got five or more releases by:

R&B/Funk - Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield, Corinne Bailey Rae, Cameo, Isley Bros., Kleeer, Slave, Parliament/Funkadelic, Lauryn Hill, Minnie Riperton, The O'Jays.

Rock - Neil Young, Todd Rundgren, Paul Weller, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Steve Winwood, Santana, Eagles/Don Henley, Sting, Pretenders, Annie Lennox, Athlete, Garbage, Manic Street Preachers, Snow Patrol, Counting Crows.

Jazz - Pat Metheny, Sade, George Duke, Steely Dan/Donald Fagen, Azymuth.

Dance - EBTG, Underworld, Madonna, Bjork, 4Hero, Faithless, Jazzanova, Rae & Christian/Grand Central Records, U.N.K.L.E.

Chillout - Tosca, K&D, Thievery Corp., Air, Afterlife, Buddah Bar.

Reggae - BMW, Burning Spear, Third World, Ijahman, Aswad, Culture, Gregory Isaacs.
