While I do enjoy many different types, styles and decades of music. In the past few years have found myself listening to more and more Jazz, Blues and classical music. However, I still generally fall back to my all time fav's. 60's and mainly 70's classic Rock.\nSimilar to what I like. I guess a lot depends on what was new & hip when we were young.\n\nI've always liked mid to later 60s and early 70s rock music. In addition, I liked Memphis, but not Detroit, soul. Booker T & the MGs et al. get better and better with time, but some other very popular stuff from that time I find embarrassing if I drag them out and play them again. An example of that is most (but not all) Jefferson Airplane. Two bands which continue to sound good over the years are the Grateful Dead and Little Feat.\n\nBy the mid to later 70s rockers were aging and rock music was dying. Disco was like the plague or a bad flu epidemic, it killed off most of those music careers, many of which were already on life support.\n\nThe 80s, in my opinion, were a musical lost decade. It was populated by the survivors of the Great Disco Plague. Madonna was the poster child of that bleak world. Like the un-dead Vampires of Dracula legend, she continues to think she's relevant, much less a musician.\n\nAs a high school kid, I played in the band and orchestra, but quit playing before graduating and heading off to college. In the last two decades, I've happily rediscovered my repressed love of classical music. Last night I saw the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (the other BSO) perform Stravinsky's Pucinella, a delight I hadn't known of before.\n\nI've also been slowly rediscovering 60s & 70s jazz, mainly the type of jazz that was a love child of R&B and earlier jazz. Think of King Curtis or Jimmy Smith.
