    You put Jethro-fucking-Tull and James wife beater Taylor above Joni Mitchell, John Lennon, and Johnny Cash? WTF? Over.

    you've got a pretty varied taste in music. Mainly old rock though - don't you really like the new suff as much? Or are they your favourites becuase they contain sentimental value?

    To schtef: No, I don't like most of the modern music out there. To astupidperson: Don't like GnR, but I like Journey, and I might check out your other suggestions. To Cluttermunkey: Have you heard anything by maudlin Of The Well? It was essentially Kayo Dot before the name change, they split, but most members stayed on for the Kayo Dot project. If you go to Prog Archives you can listne to a sample from Bath by mOTW, it's great.

    Most of the things in your little alphabet of the music is a good choice. I can also not understand why you put Jethro Tull in front of the genouse John Lennon. I mean this strange pepole with their flute sounds like some Middel Age fools. Another thing: The Rush and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers in front of the Rolling Stones is no Satisfaction. What about Van Halen, the Blues Brothers, Canned Heat, Cat Stevens, Chicago and the Clash? The most terrible mistake: Where are Creedence Clearwater Revival and Crosby, Stills, Nash (and Young)?

    What about Van Halen, the Blues Brothers, Canned Heat, Cat Stevens, Chicago and the Clash? The most terrible mistake: Where are Creedence Clearwater Revival and Crosby, Stills, Nash (and Young)? Don't like Van Halen, or Canned Heat, I like Cat Stevens and Chicago but decided to leave them out, and I haven't heard much if anything from the Clash or the Blues Brothers. I like CCR, but I don't even have an album by them, nor CSNY (Though, if you noticed, I mentioned Y). Of course Lennon is a god, but I'm more into progressive rock right now, and about the Stones, I don't even have an album by them (My dad has Forty Licks and about 3 albums). If I had all of their albums, or all the ones that matter, maybe I could justify putting them higher. I have nearly all of RHCPs albums and about 5 Rush ones in various format (CD, cassette, vinyl). Please keep in mind that when I list a band above, or say so and so, followed by so and so, it's not that I'm placing them on top of the world and saying the following bands are dirt. This is why I didn't number the selections, I simply put them in a relative order pertaining to what I'm into at this point and listening to the most.

    I agree with you on the Jethro Tull before John Lennon, while I love the beatles he only really had one great song on his own. But I do think Jefferson Airplane should have come first. You should check out Freedom's Children if you can find them, a bluesy sort of psych-rock band from the early 70's. And what about the Allman Brothers?!

    My dad has an Allman Brothers Band compilation downstairs, I think it's a Martin Scorcese Presents one. I'll give it a listen, and I'll try to check out Freedom's Children as well. John Lennon was amazing (His newly released album Acoustic was blissful), but I haven't been listening to him as much as Tull.
