I’ve searched around the community as well as done the, ever reliable, Google search but have struggled to find a thread that matches what the title suggests. If there does happen to be one, the please direct me there :D
So, the question is pretty obvious, I’m interested in what music you guys listen to; artists, genre etc and what album/song that you may be currently listening to on repeat.
Myself, while born in the 70’s, it was the 80’s that I discovered music and, therefore, the music of that decade is the music I listen to most. Now, I’m not talking of 80’s pop music, where it’s all neon and leg warmers, no, I’m a big listener of 80’s heavy metal/hair metal etc. From Iron Maiden to Poison, from Helloween to Motley Crue, I love it.
However, the band I love most are Guns n’ Roses. Appetite For Destruction was the album that really got listened to so much back in the 80’s (it still gets a lot of listening to today). Arguably the best debut album from a band, I was a fan from the beginning. It’s So Easy was the track that had me hooked after I heard a dodgy, little bootleg of it before the release of AFD. So that’s what I listen to most of the time but, occasionally, I do like to throw on the odd movie/television soundtrack/score to listen to as some of the music is just wonderful to listen to. Bond scores obviously get listened to a fair amount as well as some of the Murray Gold music from Doctor Who.
At the moment, and thanks to the fact that there is a mini reunion happening, I am listening to a lot of Guns n’ Roses from Appetite For Destruction to Chinese Democracy (no surprise). I know that there has been many changes within the band etc and that, recently, it’s been Axl and his Merry Men but I’ll always be a fan. With new gig dates coming out because of the reunion, I’m hoping that we’ll get some sort of UK tour. I’d rather a solo gig than a festival as, honestly, most of the bands that would be on the card, I wouldn’t listen to.
So, how about everyone else? I’d be interested in reading your own likes/dislikes etc.
P.s – if there is another thread, my apologies, but please feel free to merge this etc. Thanks.
