Classic rock , hard rock , metal and jazz , glitter rock , indie , some punk . I was raised in Texas so I know country very well too but cannot stand anything past 1990. myfavorite decade will always be the 70's I guess .

When mom was really declining with dementia she would still instantly recognize anything by Def Leppard or the Beatles .

We all played at least one instrument and sang anyway my dad was a big band drummer ( on weekends ) with alot of bands . We all loved music and my sister and I still do .

There are two types of music: good and bad.

I prefer the good.

(Everything from Sinatra to the Clash)

I have a good friend from high school (graduated 1969) who was lead guitarist and singer in a rock band, complete with long hair. I used to go to lots of his gigs. I reconnected with him about 9 years ago, only to discover that he plays primarily country music now. What a shock!

A lot of country music nowadays has some rock in it.

That's a good point, jasper. But he is a devotee of the "old school" country performers such as Johnny Cash, Chet Atkins, Hank Williams, etc.
I can handle some country music, enjoy some, but for the most point it isn't what I would choose to listen to. However, I do watch the tv show "Nashville" and have really enjoyed the music performed on it----does that count, lol? I wish I could actually go to hear many of the actor/musicians on it perform live.

There was a young country singer on American Idol a number of years ago, Scotty McCreary, I think his name is. He will be performing a concert near here and some of my friends and I plan to go to it.

Johnny Cash, iirc connected with a fair amount of rock, including Nine Inch Nails.

True, that, jbgusa. I was just listening to some Crosby, Stills & Nash last night---also Gordon Lightfoot. They are in the mix on the Pandora station I mentioned. I am so bad about remembering titles of songs these days, but can still get most of the words when I attempt to sing along, lol! I also like hearing Stevie Nicks plus James Taylor, too.
