What’s spining when the knives are slingin’? My music influences have certainly fluctuated over the years. 1970′s I’d spin my 45′s and 33 1/2′s (no those are the size tires I rolled on back then for all the youngin’s out there). From the Beach Boys to Sugarhill Gang, KISS, Led Zepplin, Woodstock Album, John Travolta (yes he has an album out there), KC and the Sunshine Band and too many others that I can’t think of at this time.
There was a brief moment in the early 80′s prior to my exposure to heavy metal was rap & break dancing music. Of course back then in my super fly windbreaker and parachute pants RUN DMC was in full effect along with Herbie Hancock, UTFO Crew, Fat Boys, Roxanne, Newcleus and I could bust out some top rock, windmill, crab, handspins, headspins and beat ‘em all out with a suicide flip…YO! No need to fight let’s break it out.
After that very brief moment in time I cut my funky fresh tail and began to grow out my hair. In the Beginning….Good always overpowered the evils, of all man’s sins…but in time, the nations grew weak and our cities fell to slums while evil stood strong... so ensued a long road into my long journey on the long-haired metal head road. Some may argue that it was my personal “Highway To Hell”!
My teen years I delved into music much more. and by mid-teen years I eventually got into a band and my appreciation grew away from metal and more towards classic rock roots of the 70′s, 50′s and 60′s. Motely Crue (the early years) were my favorite. All that aside my tastes began to lean more towards Metallica, Alice Cooper, Grateful Dead, Blues Traveler, Aerosmith, Black Oak Arkansas, Skynanrd, Janis, Arlo Guthrie, Charlie Daniels and any other backwoods get down music. Pickin a six string on the top of a fire tower on top of a mountain or by the riverside just outside Elkins, WVa is quite an amazing experience. So there is few years when you get lost from your music tastes and get stuck in a rut, new music and bands sucked, the 90′s musically didn’t prove much and the new millennium didn’t bring anything great either. At least in this former amateur musician’s humble opinion.
Into my 30′s my tastes tended to stray back towards R&B and Rap mainstream and some off shoot west coast and Houston hood rap…yo G! Seriously though mainly because it was different and my 20′s and early 30′s I had re-listened to everything way to many times so music got boring to me. Now nearing my 40th I listen to whatever the hell sounds good and not like anything that is on…but has anything really changed?!
