So picking one was tough, but dammit, I have no regrets having chosen rock. Do they still make rock? For the most part I stopped listening to new music in the mid-'90s.

However, world music is what I particularly listen to. Even if I don't know the language, if it is good music, I will listen to it.

Not having a good beat and not being easy to dance to is the point, as far as I'm concerned.

Paul Mehling is getting about as close as you can, short of having his left hand surgically altered. On the other hand, Evan Price totally nails Stéphane Grappelli.

An amalgam of roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B and blues, oh, and bit of traditional Black Gospel. Everyday is different. One day Jump Blues does it, and the next might be Rhythm & Blues. Every path is a glorious adventure.

At the end of the day, it's all connected in a magical way; musicians love to 'borrow' and give it back, many times even better.

I love so many genres I have them scheduled by weekday:

Sunday: Classical
Monday: Madonna (yes, she gets her own day!)
Tuesday: Chill (The Orb, Zero 7, Thievery Corporation, etc.)
Wednesday: Various alternative (Smiths, Devo, Ska, Violent Femmes, etc.)
Thursday: Gothic (Bauhaus, Siouxsie, Cure, etc.)
Friday: Soundtracks (I love film & TV soundtracks!)
Saturday: Shuffle - I just set my music on shuffle and skip anything I'm not in the mood for.

final note: I have Echo & the Bunnymen on both Wed & Thurs playlists because I love them so much!!

My tastes are very eclectic. My favorite artist is Frank Zappa but I enjoy all types of music. Heavy metal, classic rock, 50’s R&B, older country, alternative, pop, etc.

Classic rock I think is the best overall genre. But so many artists to love in those others IMO.
