Beethoven op 111. As far I Hendrix goes, I know you are not old enough to have been there like some of us. Personally, I would include Joplin as well....

For me lately, it has been an odd mix of Outkast, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Diving Heresy.

BTW, I once read an article that had Stevie stating that he used this song 1st in his set to warm up his fingers - crazy!

Some local radio jocks that knew him from way back(like from when he was still a kid in Dallas) had a tape(yes, a tape) of Stevie jamming at a local festival when he was 15. He could outplay a grown man, he sounded like he lit the fretboard on fire!

Might not be the most techincally proficient(Steve Vai warms up by playing Beethoven's 5th at 4x the intended speed), but SRV had chops to kill. One of the many great things about Texas.

This might sound dumb, but I really like the soundtrack from Mortal Kombat.
When I watch the movie I crank it up and hope the speakers don't bounce off the shelves.

Hendrix and SRV get a lot of play here but as I start to get spring fever the Parrothead in me starts to show a bit.

There is always a parrothead cd or two in my 6 disc in the truck along with an SRV, Hendricks or Johnny Lang and Cross Canadian Ragweed. Was switching off between VH (Sammy) and Buffett over the weekend.

My happy music is always changing, but right now '80-90s punk rock is really making me feel good. Against Me, The Bouncing Souls, NOFX...stuff like that. I guess I need a release of some sort.

I like Skillet, Lacuna Coil, Nightwish, Disturbed, Sixxx A.M, Breaking Benjamin, Halestorm, Valora. I like the harder rock; not emo, but something with some guts to it! Even used to listen to Kittie.

Can't wait to get my shed delivered, hopefully tomorrow! Then I can crank the music w/o driving the parents nuts :)

Kool & the Gang! That brings back some memories. My Jr High School (what we called middle school) won a Kool & the Gang concert by collecting labels off Yoo Hoo (surely one of the most vile beverages in the history of mankind.) The contest would take color facsimiles as well as actual labels--we printed off hundreds of B&W copies (this was before color printers) and sat in class with crayons and colored pencils filling them in.

When I need a pick-me-up I turn on Dave Edmunds Rockpile and turn it up. I have a disc with that album and some extras like "the creature from the black lagoon". It seems that the original Edmunds album titled "Rockpile" is not available on i-tunes. :curse:

This one:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rockpile_(album)

My upcoming trip to Southern California made me remember this one.
The 80s really wasn't that long ago.

Been a long time since I've heard a vibraslap--much less seen one in a video! There were some good things about the 80s.

Best thing about the 80s was that they retrospectively made the 70s look good ;)

I grew up as an Elvis fan, still occasionally enjoy listening to him. Then moved more into old blues and jazz with my interest. But having been a teenager in the 70s with lots of slightly older friends, there is also a lot of classic rock stuff I like - and which red-blooded guy wasn't in love with Stevie Nicks in the 70s? :) A bit more embarrassing, but I also admit to a light crush on Suzi Quattro... And I still have to smile when I get surprised by tunes of the Sweet, Heart, etc.

but my real feefgood music is 40s/50s vocal jazz - Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and a whole bunch of other ladies, but also a bit of Sinatra etc. The classic 'American Songbook' music and a nice single malt are the perfect way to relax for me. That doesn't mean that a bit of Hendrix, SRV, any of Claptons incarnations, Led Zeppelin, or even KC and the Sunshine Band occasionally make me turn up the volume in the car :) Listening to Bessie Smith while writing this, btw.

The satellite radio in my shop is permanently stuck on Deep Tracks especially since they have stopped playing Velvet Underground's "Sister Ray" once a day. That was the one tune that would always make me change over to another station. Grinding and sanding whilst listening to Lou Reed (who I otherwise like) "sing' about tranny hookers and his ding-dong for 22 minutes just doesn't really work for me. :eek2: Perhaps my favorite little rediscovery has been the short lived early 70's Stephen Stills/ Chris Hillman project Manassas.
