I think its kind of sad that it took the game guitar hero to make me really love rock. I’ve been moving in that direction over the past few years. I had to discover Led Zeppelin, The Doors, and Stevie Nicks after that I started liking classic rock more. Before I would describe me listen to rock as apreciation, now I can’t get enough guitars. Not to mention that I now know the life stories of everyone from Jim Morrison, Slash, and Axel Rose. The weird thing is its not like I haven’t heard a lot of the songs I really really like now alot but now I love them and before I didn’t. I would almost describe it as tone deafness or something going away, because now I feel like I can hear more in the music than I had before.
So now while I draw I can listen to Guns N’ Roses, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Heart, Van Halen, etc. I’ve also noticed that I like what I dubbed “hippie rock” like The Doors, Blue Oyster Cult, and Jefferson Airplane. The 60s and 70s have the most awesome music ever. What makes me somewhat sad is why didn’t I know about these groups so much earlier
Now your probably wondering what I used to listen to. Well that would be 80s, 90s, and music made now. There is a movement now (which I like) for music that sounds like 60s. I guess I’ll be talking more about this later so I’ll stop rambling.
