    Your Favourite Band/Musicians?

    All right Clan. Have at it. Who are your favourite musicians and why?

    BBQ's top 5:
    • John Mayer- Brilliant fusion of the blues and pop.
    • Ben Folds- Perfect piano pop.
    • Clem Snide/Eef Barzelay-Perhaps the most underrated songwirter of the last decade- Alt Country musician with unparalleled lyrics.
    • Fountains of Wayne- Think of the two kids who sat up the back of your english class making funny inside jokes starting a band. Add an ear for pop harmony and a cracking guitarist and you Have Fountains of Wayne.
    • Stevie Ray Vaughan- The blues personified, one of the greatest 'white' bluesmen of all time.

    Adam Schlesinger and Chris Collingwood are two talented guys that have never really gotten their due. Too bad most people can't get past "Stacy's Mom" because there is so much more to this band.

    Although my musical taste is constantly in flux, here are a some bands I could listen to anytime, anywhere:

    Bad Religion
    UFO
    NOFX
    The Doors
    Reverend Horton Heat
    Supersuckers
    Led Zeppelin
    Bruce Springsteen (the 70's version)

    Re: Your Favourite Band/Musicians?

    Although my tastes are varied, here are some of the old standby's that always work for me:

    Van Morrison
    Bruce Springstein
    The Alman Brothers
    Stevie Ray Vaughan
    Bob Dylan
    Steve Winwood
    Aerosmith

    Of course, there are so many more. But, this will give you an idea of my generation and tastes. That's a full night right there.

    Has anyone heard David Cook from American Idol?? He is the bomb!! Such a unique voice. He will make it big.

    Hardest working band in music, and it pays off when they hit the gravel!

    They screened bits and pieces here in Australia, and he was the pick of the bunch. Seems like a genuine talent, much unlike some of the other "man of the moment" finalists who fizzle after their first single. It's interesting that commercial backing will only get you so far.

    It's also interesting that a guy like David Cook gets a guernsey before somebody says "Pink Floyd", "Guns n Roses" or "Eric Clapton"

    We've also been selling a lot of Weezer's new album of late, in at our CD store. I really like it. Possibly one of my favourites this year.

    In terms of this year's best releases, here's my half-yearly roundup:

    Counting Crows- Saturday Nights and Sunday Mornings
    Elvis Costello- Momofuku (after the inventor of the cup-o-noodles)
    Death Cab For Cutie- Narrow Stairs
    Eels- Meet the Eels/Useless Trinkets
    Eef Barzelay- Lose Big
    Weezer- Weezer (Red Album)
    Jason Mraz- We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things
    City and Color- Bring Me Your Love
    Sarah Bareilles- Little Voice

    This is all subject to change pending the new releases of (notably) John Mayer and Ben Folds in the coming months.

    Re: Your Favourite Band/Musicians?

    Like RW, it's hard for me to narrow them down, and I enjoy a good variety (punk/industrial/alternative rock, some folk & old country, hip-hop) but I'll give it a shot...

    Nirvana
    System of a Down
    Elliott Smith
    Mos Def
    R.E.M.
    Static-X
    Immortal Technique
