I am currently listening to the album Nevermind by Nirvana and this got me thinking what gets us going musically?
I know @jonobacon is a musician as am I and was wondering who else plays, what instruments and what styles of music. I mainly play traditional Irish and British folk but love lots of styles.
A good friend of mine was John Peel, now sadly no-longer with us, a British radio DJ - and much more, who famously said there are only two types of music “good” and “bad” we must choose for ourselves what belongs in these categories. If you are in love with something you think few of us have heard of post links so the rest of us can judge.
Note: we need to consider legality here , sites like YouTube are probably OK as are sites where the content owner has said its OK but we must not be breaking coprw-write law,
I know there are several people here significantly younger than me and I suspect a few that are older so this has the potential of being an interesting discussion.
I would like to add here that we are discussing personal choice and while there are several performers that I would not go and see if you paid me more money than has ever existed on this planet some of you may have similar feelings about my choices. So lets play nice and discuss what works for us.
