Recently I engaged in a little e-mail dialogue (whose quick replies will always make her the QUEEN OF INTERNET RADIO) with Nicole Marie. The topic involved my own recent explorations into the musical sub-genre of Pyscho-billy and Punk. I have discovered, through my daughter in the former, and Nicole Marie (due to an ancient host bio wherein I discovered she liked Wendy O. Williams) for the latter.
Normally (and that term is most definitely a tenuous one, given my online name) I would disdain these types of music, but I found certain artists within both genres to be extremely compelling.
Prior to this recent conversion (and near worship of Wendy O at this juncture), I had broadened my horizons to include Latin Jazz, with Tito Puentes being the obvious front runner (I even have a cat named Tito Purrentes), Blues, and 50's jazz (Charlie Parker, Coltrane, and Coleman Hawkins). Of course, given the fact that I came of musical age in the late 60's and 70's, I still like rock...from that era.
Having digressed to the point of absurdity, which is, overall, my most defining trait, what OTHER types of music are we all into (and I use "we" in a vain, and somewhat desperate atttempt to validate my online identity)?
