Colin is one of my favourite artists, great voice and a wicked good guitar guy. Also does albums that he wants to do, not what his record label say.

Plays Rock, Blues and Big Band.

I still listen to a lot of blues music and love the old stuff.  Robert Johnson, Howlin Wolf, Blind Willie McTell and Muddy Waters.

I have been saving and play my LP's since I was a kid.  Not quite as big as yours but I have maybe 300 LP's, couple hundred CD\s and on my computer around 2000.

I still prefer lp's but digital can't be beat for convenience and the sound is getting closer, with better sampling rates.

But cover art just doesn't look as good when shrunk to a cd size, and lp's, to me anyway, sound better.

I have to admit to enjoying the great Classic Rock Groups but I am a Blues guy at heart.  I have a 1972 Guild as my favorite guitar.

Classic rock is what I grew up on.  That and Motown.  It’s always been about the guitar and guitar heroes since I was around 10.

 

my first initiation into face melting was courtesy of Jimi Hendrix.

man i’m old, i’m still into the big band music of the 40’s and 60’s music. metal gives me a headache. i like dramatic music, that can wisk you away to a gentler time and place. 

I’ll listen to the heaviest of metal but I have Chet Baker on my playlists and I listened to him today at work.
