as a teenager etc in the 50s-60s tikay what music were you into?
your tastes are quite modern, which is interesting
were you an elvis man? beatles? stones?
Elvis? Good Lord, no.
Not Stones mad, though I saw them in clubs in Ealing & Richmond on several occasions. I'm more an admirer these days solely because I'm in awe of how Keith Richards has survived, all things considered. His book was very revealing, & a great read. (The best "pop" Bio I can recall is "Scar Tissue" by Mr Keidis).
Really, back then, everything - music, life, the lot, was shaped by the emergence of The Beatles in 1963 (?). They, really, changed the game completely. I've just read a book by their sound Engineer, which was a dreadful bore (or, more correctly, he was) but it was interesting to read that Harrison was, back in the day, completely crap at playing guitar.
But I mostly enjoy music I can see, & of course music videos never really arrived until the mid-eighties, along with MTV. Proper MTV, I mean, MTV America, not the crap MTV Europe we have to suffer these days.
I would not say my music tastes are "modern", more 70/80/90's in the main.
For me, I lived through a golden age of British pop music - The Beatles, Elton, Rod, Robbie of course. Then it all changed, & we had Natalie, Gwen, Eminem, Dr Dre, Snoop, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd & DSOTM, Radiohead & all that stuff.
So much pleasure from music, for so many years.
What were your musical tastes as a youngster, & now? And your children, do they do music?
Love him, his songs are so uplifting... and agree with David, Robbie who?? Elton and rod are the class acts... nothing wrong with a bit of Eminem Tikay, surprised no mention of my bestie - Adele :/
