I love all music. These days I find myself listening to Iron and
Wine, Death Cab for Cutie, Flobots, Jack Johnson, Miles Davis,
Nekromantix, The Ventures, Dick Dale, The Dubliners, Old Crow
Medicine Show, The J.B's, Atmosphere, and otherwise the most
unlikely variance imaginable. My metal staples (pardon the pun)
would include (hed)pe, Mushroomhead (each of whom I've seen about
10 times each), Deftones and Tool. I've also seen Flogging Molly
about 10 times. You stop counting after a while. I would really
love to see Muse and Rammstein but the timing hasn't yet been good.
I'm a lifelong Beatlemaniac. Others are Sublime, The Cramps, 311,
Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Pink Floyd, Smashing Pumpkins, Dropkick
Murphys, Bad Religion.
