QOTW: Let's talk about music

This week's question is inspired by liquidfractals's reply to last weeks question.

What is your favorite music and which bands would you have loved to see live?
We learned many things; mostly that our team have poor taste in music.

I grew up with rap and pop, but I like R&B, country, electronic and rock too. Krayzie Bone of Bone Thugs n Harmony is probably my favorite rapper (and I've seen the group perform live), with Chamillionaire being a close second (and I've actually met him and talked to him one on one). I'd love to see Pentatonix live, that's on my bucket list I'd say.

MarkH.jpg.e74da5597645820c0705fb4982ed2ecb.jpgMy tastes in music are quite eclectic. 
Given my age, "Rock & Roll" is at the top of the list, but after that it's "anything except Rap and Country". 
Who I'd like to see? Well.... I did have an invite from an older friend to attend Woodstock with him and his even older brother. Problem being, I was still very much a minor. Dad put the kibosh on that idea. I do wish I had gone.

marcs.jpg.56952e4c8cb28fc62ec5d6892a03b9f6.jpgI have lots of different genres of music that I listen to. Pretty much everything from Classical to hard trance, Whitney Houston to Marilyn Manson. I think if I was forced to pick just one, then it would likely be Progressive, or uplifting Trance. I could listen to this all day and night, and have produced some tracks, alongside one of my friends in the past.

I listen to music all day while I work and I always have a pair of headphones in my pocket. My tastes change considerably depending on my mood but Sigur Ros, Radiohead, The National and Metallica are often on repeat. I quite like Apple Music as it often suggests bands that I've not heard of.  I used to be a guitarist in a Metallica cover band in school. Thankfully it was before the internet existed so no shameful footage exists of those days.

I listen to a lot of different genres and artists. Honestly my music tastes depend on my mood and what I'm focusing on. Thank god for Spotify. I listen to nearly everything except for Death Metal and Country (although I'm sure there are exceptions to the rule for both of them). I tend to lean to female voices over male voices most of the time. I have a special love for Five Nights At Freddys Fan songs, Portal Music and Pink Fluffy Unicorns (dancing on rainbows). 

I'd say some of my top artist loves would be: Amanda Palmer, Janelle Monae, Lily Allen, Nicki Minaj, The Pretty Reckless, Muse, Black Veil Brides, Fall Out Boy, Maroon 5 and Skillet

I do also enjoy listening to rock and metal. One band I would have loved to see live is Queen, but unfortunately that was a little (not much) before my time.

 

Drop us a line and let us know what your favorite music is. If you have any questions for the team that you'd like to be featured, let us know and we'll queue them up!

Forgot to respond this week and probably the biggest question for me as of late. Love music but Classic Rock is my favorite. Tom Petty is by far my favorite artist, RIP my friend. Tom's music for me is one that I can listen to album to album without skipping a song and often do while I work.

Music is crucial to my life. Last week I was fortunate to attend an event at Capitol Studios in Hollywood. This is where Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and thousands of other artist have recorded some incredible music. I was in awe the entire time.

late comment I know, but....these days it's Godspeed You! Black Emperor (post-rock pioneers) and Low out of Minnesota, who pretty much began another quasi post-rock genre known as slowcore.

@Nathan Explosion the very first show I ever saw was Metallica - opening for WASP and Armored Saint on the "Ride the Lightning" tour.  The first big stadium show I ever saw was Iron Maiden on the Powerslave tour (Twisted Sister opening). :thumbsup:
