    I was raised on hard country music and that's still my favorite. In the 50's my favorite band was the Drifting Cowboys, and later in the 50's it was Luther Perkins, Marshall Grant, and W.S. Holland. I loved slide bar guitar and my favorites were Pete Kirby, Roy Wiggins, Don Helms, Buddy Emmons, Bud Isaacs, and Johnny Sibert.
    The good solid one note electric lead I liked was Tommy Tomlinson, Leon Rhodes, and later, Don Rich.
    My favorite banjo player of all time is Buck Trent. My favorite flat top pickers were Cowboy Copas and of course, Hank Snow.
    My favorite ballad singer was Little Jimmy Dickens.

    When I was a kid we had a reel to reel tape player and the only tapes we had were ELO, Queen, John Denver and Leo Sayer, so naturally I played them over and over again and have an odd set of favourites now.

    When I was a teen and could choose my own music I loved ELO, early Queen, early Genesis, Jimi, Janis, Marillion, Jethro Tull and Led Zep. I spent years wrestling with my conscience about owning the 'most demonic band', but eventually couldnt give up Houses of the Holy. Them were chillen crawling up them rocks not angels!

    Teenager, early '80s: Van Halen, Judas Priest, Dio, Metallica;

    Late '80s: Ratt and Roll, Baby!; Motley Crue.

    '90s: Black Flag, Ministry, Skinny Puppy, NeerVanna, I loved and still do all the "grunge."

    Now: Hard (Speed, Death, etc...) Metal. I actually go to see some Metal shows when they come to town. Mosh pits are still great!

    Over that entire time, if there's beer, bait or ammo involved its got to be Pre-'85 Country or Western or both: David Allan Coe, Lefty Frizzell, Gary Stewart, George Strait or Jones, Alabama, Hank both, Vern Gosdin, Buck Owens, John Anderson, et cetera.
