    Following @tviracing comment about parents (which I agree with wholeheartedly), I thought I would stick a link to the video that I mentioned. This video hits me hard everytime I hear it. I am a huge music lover, mainly of the 80s,90s era as I love rock. Music is a huge part of my life, even now, one of the few things that can relax me. I have so many songs which are special to me.

    I thought it would be an interesting idea to see what others taste is music like, the songs which take you back to a certain point in time everytime you hear it.

    Il start - listen to the words, words any parents should hear about whether they should spend time with their kids or not:

    I find most of the recent secular music over the past decade really quite boring and monotonous. Old songs used to have a story behind them, an ideology that you can absorb, consider and implement into your life if it was appropriate. Music nowadays is missing that.

    two of my most memorable music events the first being in the past around the year AD. was seeing the rolling stones at bristol football ground support was the young tina turner what a blast two shows in one and the energy of these acts were second to non and i believe never to be seen again in modern bands of today
    the second was seeing an evening with eric clapton at the albert hall managed to get tickets which normally sell out the year before !!!! unbelivable i would sell my soul for tickets if they ever were available again

    While driving around I only ever really listen to obnoxious loud underground hip-hop, or heavy metal.

    But fingerstyle guitar is my thing, Tommy Emmanuel is an eccentric nutcase, and also one of the most talented on the planet:



    I've never been able to learn one of his pieces from back to front. Worth catching "Classical Gas" on the above, his version is insanely compared complicated to the original (which I can just about manage rofl).

    There is only one electric guitar god in my books, the God that is Jimmy Hendrix

    It's generational I guess. Johnny Marr for me, although I've never been a fan of rock guitar. Does it make me sound really old if I say it just sounds like noise?!?! :Grin:

    My father always said Django Reinhardt was the best guitarist.

    New Order for me, but you can always find one of the earlier Ministry of Sound CDs in the car. I have very strange music tastes. :Drums:

    ACDC Let There Be Rock 1977 Bon Scott era. Can't beat ACDC with Bon Scott. Brian Johnson is a legend but Bon Scott was the man.

    I think it was watching Django Reinhardt that inspired Tony Iommi to keep playing guitar after he lost the tips of his fingers in an accident at work.

    For some reason it won't play in full screen but you can't beat a bit of Thin Lizzy....

    Not a fan of heavy rock or metal, but I had forgotten how brilliant that AAF cover (and video) was :Smile:

    Excellent stuff John, thanks for posting :clap:

    I have a very varied taste in music. It would be difficult to state a 'favourite'. I tend to play music to match my mood, or alter it.
    I grew up in a house where music was an almost constant companion. The 'Stereo Radiogram' had pride of place. (That's a valve radio and stereo gramophone record player in a large, symmetrical wooden cabinet)
    Hmm. That does make me sound old. Did anyone else have one, or remember them?

    A smashing selection of videos above.
    I'll have to have a little think for a suitable addition...

    I remember my parents' 1960s Roberts Radio and Dansette record player........

    This isn't either of them but just to give you an idea....
