Since some don't seem to understand that profanity, politics, and argumentative, insulting behavior isn't allowed here.  (Remember those guidelines you agreed to, when you signed up for the Wire?)  We're going to haul out the "ban hammer" for those that won't comply with those simple rules.  Behave or be gone.

I didn't do it. I wasn't even in the area at the time. And I have alibis.

Maybe the band rush?

Why, yes, that would be the Rush I meant!

Never heard of them. Just went to YouTube and looked them up and listened to some of their music, and I can safely say that I'm glad I never heard them.

 

Not my kind of sound.

To each their own. They were among the most talented rock bands out there, and in many ways Neil Peart, their drummer and primary lyricist, wrote the soundtrack for my life beginning with my teenage years. I felt like I had been gut punched when I found out he had died.

 

Out of curiosity, what did you listen to? I’m not saying there is something they did you might like, because I don’t know your tastes. I’m simply asking.

Country - old country. Ernest, Hank, Hank Jr, Patsy, Kitty. '50s and early 60s rock. A little bit of disco. Little Opera. A little classical.

 

But from the late sixties on rock and roll was just noise. It's like rap. If you like it, that's wonderful. I'll turn the radio off first before I listen to that.

Funny thing. There's very little in the way of music that I don't like, or at least can listen to. The new country / pop stuff is on the list of stuff I don't care for. Stuff with a fake nasal twang to it. I can really do without most disco. I enjoy old Country music, up to and including stuff by Randy Travis, Clint Black, George Strait and the like. Bluegrass, Folk, Classical (from Baroque through Romantic and on), Pop, Rock of all types, R&B, Blues, and even early "old school" Hip Hop and Rap from when I was in high school and college. Among my favorite rock bands, Rush rates high, with their penchant for odd time signatures. Although I am adamant that the single greatest piece of music ever composed was Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 in D Minor, Op. 125. (Others may disagree. I respect their right to be incorrect.)

 

So, yes, it is wonderful. It makes life much more... Colorful. I can't think of a better word. The analogy of what we hear to what we see works well for me.
