BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND...
A few months ago we asked some of the Approved Vendors to offer some discounts to our community. A lot of them graciously did. We have been asked to bring those discounts back. The following vendors would like to share the love for this forum with you. I know we all appreciate it.

If I say I like classic rock from the 50's and 60's, feel the Cars are underappreciated, will never change the station on a reggae song. mostly listen to alternative rock- stay up to date on Garbage and Queens of the Stone Age. How old am I? What would be the tell?

LaoWhoo mentioned listening to Massive Attack and trip hop. I am guessing early forties, 42? (the tell music popular in the mid nineties, we develop music tastes in the teens and early twenties) Also I am aware he has one ex wife and I am guesing a young adult son.

Barnaclebill's favorite band is ZZ Top. Late 50's? 58.

New game show?

I'm 58. And I just saw Shirley Manson on some show the other day (YouTube--I don't watch TV.) I'm gonna say you're 45. As for me, I'm all over the place musically, ever since my buddy dragged me out of seminary and into a punk bar in Chicago where we slammed in a mosh pit. The sounds I heard were like finding another planet and woke up things I didn't know were in me. But a lot of it was in a lotta the music that was shaping me in the 60s as a child. How great did I have it? Walking home from the bus and hearing a new Dylan or Hendrix song coming out of a passing car.

It can come from anywhere, even the credits at the end of a movie. My most recent infatuation was with a young 20-sumthing who started on YouTube's Band Camp platform where he built quite a following. He had a coupla commercial songs wh/ I had, but I didn't know Matador Records had signed him and re-packaged his best early stuff into 2 albums. I ended up buying 50 of his songs.

Might also be where I'm at, but if I'm in a music mood I'm always finding sumthin. Also only listen to college radio stations. BTW, our 18-year-old daughter is always shocking us with her knowledge of 60s music. Ya never know.
