Favourite Band

#21
Such a difficult question to answer!
At the moment I'm revisiting Siouxsie and the Banshees but last week it was Opeth!
Next week, it could be Wes Montgomery!

However, consider this question...
What band do you not think of as a favourite, but seem to have stacks of their music, somehow?
Steely Dan sprang to mind!

A Kiss in the Dreamhouse has always been my favourite-I remember running out to buy it at my local record shop (remember them), and the sneery Yes fan that worked there acknowledged my purchase with "great drums". I promptly left it on the bus and had to buy another one, to which the sarky git said "still great drums"!

Like the question. That would be REM for me. Have everything of theirs, not my favourite band though.

Mine will change day by day, I like a wide cross section of artists and bands and it will depend on my mood, one day it could be a Bowie day and on another it could be punk, classical, prog rock. If you looked at my iPod you may think I was undecided as to the music I like but really I like most music most of the time. However if I had to pick only one artists music go take with me to a desert island it would be The late great David Bowie, RIP.

Saw Whitesnake perform a few times in the early 1980s at the old Glasgow apollo, sadly knocked down now.
I have to be honest I really liked the combination of Mickey Moody and Bernie Marsden on guitar in the late 70's and early 80's. After that John Sykes was awesome on the 1987 album IMO defining the new Whitesnake sound. Steve Vai is a great guitarist but I felt his style didn't fit. Viv Campbell and Adrian Vandenberg both great. More recently Doug Aldrich and Reb Beach another great pairing.

As live - Black Grape at Balloch Country Park. 1996? Not sure - I was paid to go and photograph it. They were second or third on the bill under the headliners Oasis. Oasis were good but not as good as Shaun and the boys. When not working, best gig live Manu Chao at the Glasgow Academy. Best band in general - the Beta Band. I'll never forget seeing AC/DC live or indeed the Grateful Dead. I'm showing my age I think. I.

I saw Black Grape support The Stone Roses, Sheffield 1995....half way through a song they stopped playing because it was "bifter time" - madnes when they returned to the stage 5 mins later!

depeche mode, smiths, james, neutral milk hotel, simple minds have been the main bands i listen to - also a big fan of electronic and ambient music - jean michel jarre, kraftwerk, art of noise, tangerine dream were the basis of that. now i listen to a lot of soundcloud artists. the standard of music out there is phenomonal
