How did I forget the Verve, Richard Ashcroft 👌
I did my A levels at the same college as Richard Ashcroft, a few years later on from him. My English teacher taught him, he said he wasn’t very interested in his course as he said was going to be a rock star. The teacher wasn’t convinced and wanted him to get in with his work. He told us with only the slightest hint of bitterness, “proved me wrong didn’t he”.

I was born in ‘61, I can put up with most music, apart from rap and anything that else that consists of just words. With the possible exception of Telly Savalas ‘If’.

The stone roses yet another legendary band if you are old enough to appriciate their music.
I used to be a massive fan of the Stone Roses. I got into them a little late (I was only born in 84) but did catch them on the reunion tour in 2013 when I dragged my pregnant wife along and converted her. Her revenge was to take me to Gary Barlow(she didn’t convert me, and I still think he makes middle of the road pop songs for housewives, but I must admit he did put on a good show).

The fact that Ian Brown has turned into a tinfoil hat wearing Covidiot has taken some of the shine off them for me though.

I don't mind blur. Massive oasis fan, seen them a load of times. The best being slane castle. Backed up by Kasabian and the Prodigy
Unreal
Blur was my first proper concert on the Great Escape tour, came around to Oasis a bit later. Saw them at Glastonbury in 2004 and then Heaton Park in 2009 (I’ve only recently been able to drink cider again after that last one.)

I took the young boy to green Day for his birthday. He was only 13 or 14, I was actually really surprised how good they were. Their lead singer is very talented, he did a mini acoustic set on his own at the end.
Billie Joe Armstrong’s lockdown covers album is very good - a nice mix of well known and more obscure stuff, and he makes it all his own.

I’m the same with rap, hate it. Unless it’s Eminem. Absolute genius.

Nice to see someone else who likes King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard they popped up on a Spotify auto play list for me a while back and have enjoyed them ever since.

They are the best band in the planet at the moment. Nonagon Infinity is my favourite album of the 2010s by a mile. They were the last band I saw live before lockdown as well and they were phenomenal.

I miss live music, heck I miss listening to the random local bands I’ve never heard of that play at my local pub recorded music just can’t compare.

I had tickets for Ian brown but it got cancelled during lockdown. He definitely didn't do himself any favours with all the conspiracy stuff

Been a folky since I was a kid. First band I ever went to see was the Seekers in 1966.
And yes I do have a beard and wear socks with sandals, though that has more to do with nettles and thistles than my taste in music.

Excellent choices that lot.

I have a signed Capdown/Link80 split 7” record that I framed last week after it sat in a box in a cupboard for 20 years. It’s the top right one here.

Pink Floyd are my " go to" but I have broad tastes, ranging from Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, to David Grey and Ibiza Chill.
Incidentally my first live Gig was The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, at York Uni, I was at AHGS as a boarder on Hull Road. Then Roxy Music at Museum Gardens the same year. 1972 I seem to recall.

Rock for me the last time I saw Acdc was about 1986 (I think! it was a long time ago) and many pints have past my lips.
