My musical tastes run the gamut. I had formal guitar & music theory lessons when I was young, and my teacher always made it a point of knowing what music I was listening to. She would give me practice pieces that I at first might have thought, "this sucks!" but after a time, I would realize where "this band" or "that band" got it's inspiration.

Good music is good music, regardless of the genre.

So, in no particular order and in no all-inclusive:

Dick Clark (great guitarist and banjoist)
Mason Williams
Joe Bonamassa (met him in San Diego. was outside chatting and smoking with his basist waiting for the doors to open, but didn't know he was the basist until we met the band before the show)
KISS
Metallica (pre-Black album)
Megadeth (anything "Risk" and back. Saw them in concert 6 times, two of those in a 2 month period, and another months after)
Manowar (Eric Adams' voice is just absolutely amazing)
King Diamond/Mercyful Fate
Helloween
Judas Priest (after Rob revealed he was homosexual, certains songs took on a whole new meaning)
Avett Brothers
Louis XIV
Alan Parsons Project (I wore out "Tales of Mystery and Imagination")
Dave Matthews (saw him in concert
Bob Dylan
Anthrax
Michael Franti & Spearhead
Pearl Jam ( & Eddie Veder solo material)
Sound Garden
Amon Amarth
Iced Earth
Rammstein (anything in German sounds angry and agressive)
Tommy Emamanuel
Bloodhound Gang
The Eagles
T-Rex
The Ventures
Slayer
Iron Maiden
Joe Satriani
SRV
The Pixies
Helmet


the list goes on and on, but from what I listed above (hey, it could have been MUCH longer), you can bet that another band in the same genre is also on my list.

I have a bit of a fetish at the moment for the music of Richard Wagner.

I am a bit fixated on Tristan and Isolde, and the Ring Opera's.

During my recent travels I visited Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany, which is the one Ludwig the Second built and dedicated to Wagner; and I enjoyed looking at the murals of the great German mythical stories Wagner used to populate his operas.

I like titanic music at the moment, the sort of music that makes the hair on your neck stand up and reveals a vision of greatness.

Those stories are great and Wagner was someone who was capable of giving those heroes, those giants, a music which compliments and unveils them.

I am also listening to 'West Side Soul' by Magic Sam, which makes me feel good.

Pretty much all of the metal and rock bands I'm into have already been listed, so I'll stick to classical.

Quite a few people have mentioned that they like classical, and some have listed excellent composers, but I haven't seen anyone list any actual works. Since the general inclination here seems to be towards metal, I'll list some of my favorite, darker works.

Also, being a string player, the vast majority of my preferences are for string pieces, so if you can't stand the violin and it's relatives, go ahead and ignore this.

First, my all time favorite is Prokofiev's cello sonata, op.119 in C. Barbara Switalska has an excellent performance of it on youtube, though my favorite is still Yo-yo Ma's interpretation.

Also worth listening to;
Shostakovich - Violin concerto op.99
Dvorak - Cello Concerto in b minor op.104
Bruch - Romanze for Viola and orchestra in F
Mendelssohn - Hebrides Overture op.26
Beethoven - Egmont Overture op.84
Tchaikovsky - Slavischer Marsch
Vivaldi - "Summer" From the Four Seasons, op.8
Bach - Suite for unaccompanied cello no.3, bwv1009 - Prelude
Mozart - Symphony no.35 "Haffner"
Chopin - Prelude op28 no. 15 "Raindrop"
Whitacre - Cloudburst
Barber - Overture to "The School for Scandal"

Enjoy!

Here is 4 of my favorites, every one of them is a bit from different music style and genre.

1.
My absolute favorite is Norwegian black metal band 'Gorgoroth'. Band is from Bergen, the second largest city in Norway. The band’s first studio album was 'Pentagram' released in 1994, but I'm a bit addicted to their two last studio albums: 'Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam' (2006) and 'Quantos Possunt ad Satanitatem Trahunt' (2009). My favorite song is 'Satan-Prometheus'. I'm so impatient to hear and maybe even be in the concert of Gorgoroth new work 'Under the Sign of Hell 2011'.

2.
Second place is for 'Therion'. They were last autumn in Latvia and played in my favorite music club - melnā piektdiena. (http://www.melnapiektdiena.lv/) The club is easy to be found, when you are in Riga, it is located near the main street of the capital… I was on ‘Therion’ concert with my best friends. Therion is amazing Swedish Swedish symphonic metal band already from 1987 and is located in Upplands Väsby. My favorite song is ‘Harlequin’ from my favorite disc ‘Sintra Ahra ‘.

3.
Third is ‘Dimmu Borgir’… Even my signature here in ‘the 600 club’ is derived from my band’s favorite studio album ‘In Sorte Diaboli’… I’ve all studio discs and I’ve all songs even in my mobile… I was in May with 2 my friends in Oslo Spectrum (in Norway) to ‘Dimmu Borgir’ concert, where they gave concert together with Oslo symphonic orchestra and . It was brilliant!

4.
… And of course ‘Marilyn Manson’! Maybe he and plays a bit different music, but I’ve all studios albums and even singles from Marilyn Manson. I enjoyed his great talent many years. I started to listen to him, when I was teenager and sometimes I remember my addiction to his lyrics.

Of course I listen and enjoy other music as well…

I'm mostly into black metal, but I do enjoy some classical music and other types of music as well. It all depends on the mood.

It's hard to write it all down, but a bit of fun trying, so here goes.

I have a varied listening range, anything form Bjork, to Immortal, but my passion is for rhythm and blues, rock n roll, rockabilly, blues, doo wop, gospel, traditional jazz, hillbilly, big band, New Orleans jazz, basically anything rockin'! Love boogie woogie and real rock n roll.

Notable mentions:

Ray Charles,
Emperor,
Less than jake
the dominoes
amos milburn
Mahalia Jackson
Johnny Guitar Watson
Big J McNeely
Jackie Wilson
Hank Williams
The Robins
Johnny Horton
Little Richard
Johnny Otis
Johhny Burnette

Basically all the sun records artists.

and so on...

Does any one here get in to any of this type of stuff?
