Groups...you would deign to like?
3-9-09 Groups that your friends can't understand WHY in HELL you would deign to like? With your w-i-d-e tastes, this must have happened to you a lot.
Let’s just say I’ve spent a lot of time alone (in the record stores) over the years. My prog rock friends had no idea what I was hearing when I got majorly into Lucio Battisti, towards the end of the 70’s. “But, it’s not prog rock!”, I was told. Yeah, but it’s Italian Pop Music – something I happen to love. Adrian Celentano, Pino Daniele…”Itarian Pops”, as my Japanese friends say.
It’s true – before I had girlfriends, I used to collect comedy LP’s. The chicks were all listening to
I remember telling an old friend of mine that “there is some new music being made that I like” in the mid-80’s. I think the LP I recommended to him was “Human Racing” by Nik Kershaw. Lots of keyboards, some good songwriting going on etc. I knew my friend wasn’t interested in all of the Australian and
“I got tickets to see The Rolling Stones – again!” is a statement often met with stony stares in a room full of hipsters. You gotta love ‘em. Dodger Stadium, The Rose Bowl,
A lot of my friends never really understood why I got so into Japanese music. I have been visiting
I have felt lucky that not many of my friends criticize my apparently ‘wide’ tastes. Is there anything I’ve ever written about on this blog that you didn’t like? Or music that I was writing about that you said, “What is he doing?”
