I know it has already been asked but playlists change. I myself have a very ecclectic range of music that I listen to. Right now I am jamming a lot of old R and B like the Temptations, Sam and Dave, Sam Cook, Al Green etc. Widespread Panic is prolly my favorite band. They are a Southern rock (jam) band from Athens Georgia with a fan following much like the Grateful Dead. I’m digging some old blues like Robert Johnson, R.L. Burnside and others. Classic rock, Zepplin, The Who, The Band, CCR. Singer Songwriter stuff (folk) Arlo Guthrie, Paul Thorn, Todd Snider, Dylan. I’m also rocking a somewhat local band (within 80 miles of me) from Memphis called Lucero. I guess the genre they fit in would be southern rock punk country. Thats a genre, right?haha. Ben Nichols, the lead singer is one of the best songwriters I have heard in a long time. I wish I would have written some of his songs. About the most mainstream, newer music I listen to is The White Stripes, The Recontouers, Black Crows and The Foo Fighters. I also venture into a little bluegrass. I have read on here that many of you are fond of this. My stepdad has been a banjo picker in the same bluegrass band for about 30+ years. He is a sponsored musician by Deering Banjos.
Anyway, this is only a drop in the bucket. I think if I turned my ipod on and hit shuffle it would play continuously for about 3 or 4 days before I heard a repeat and i’m steadily adding to it. Like I said this is just a small taste of some of the stuff I listen to.
How about you? What are you bebopping around the shop to?
