Reading Rainbow? Bring it back!
RIOB tackles why we hate certain music.
I agree music is subjective. Not everyone will like one genre, or the same group. That would be boring! I don’t listen to Rap/Hip Hop, if I did I’d go straight to Kanye West. If he releases a “Greatest Hits” album, I’ll be in the line-up to buy it!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsO6ZnUZI0g Yes, I like this song and haven’t really disliked any of his singles. Best singer? I don’t care how big a singers vocal range is. Singers, that I know of who were missed in the discussion of “Best singer”. Nat King Cole. AWESOME VOICE!
Any art is selfish, in a good way. Let me explain. If you’re doing some type of art, you do it for yourself, if it catches on you can make money from it buy selling your art to like minded people! If it doesn’t catch on with other people, keep making it for yourself, because YOU won’t be doing something you don’t take pleasure in. Why do I like heavy music for the most part? I don’t know, I just do.
The Mayfield Four, the singer was Myles Kennedy, his first group I believe from way back when. Now famous for singing in Alter Bridge and with Slash. The Mayfield 4 made 2 albums that I know of. I saw them live once. In order of appearance at the show was The Mayfield 4, The Watchmen and Big Wreck as headliners. I think that or some other Big Wreck concert was wear my hearing started going. I would ware ear plugs for 2 songs then take them out since I was unable to hear the higher notes with them in. I have very little hearing in my right ear because of this.
Anyways, back on topic. Only the 2nd album is available on iTunes. The first album is very rare, I had to download it for free years ago or it was on amazon.ca for $150 or so. You can find the songs on youtube.com though. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XT5YuYt0dIU one of my favourite songs.
This album “Second Skin” I found on iTunes!
