OK, I don't play guitar but I gotta get in on this thread 'cause I love all these bands man.

Megadeath, Anthrax, Slayer. :rock:

Love old AC-DC too, though I'm not overly fond of anything after Back in Black. Prefer the Bon Scott days ultimately.

Love old Metallica too, though not overly fond of anything after And Justice for All. Been to 3 monsters of rock concerts to see Metallica and saw them with the Cult in '89 in what was a surprisingly kick ass show. Ride the Lightning or Kill Em All are never far from my active CD slot.

Black Sabbath is never far from the active slot either... and long before it was fashionable to like Ozzy. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and Paranoid are a staple.

And I'm Canadian, so I was curious if any of you liked Rush? Wicked band live... just phenomenal amount of noise from 3 guys... Peart is god on the drums.

And despite my love of some good old fashioned rattle your brain hard driving thrash, I will always love Pink Floyd above all others. I have over 100 floyd CDs with bootlegs... got at least one bootleg from every year from 67 to 79. Got some fairly rare stuff too (some on vinyl too!).

Sorry to intrude on your thread but I'm just jealous that I'm a musical idiot and you're all playing tunes that I love.

Ok now that BH has brought in an oldie like Pink Floyd (and a goodie) - no mention yet of Led Zepplin?

I remember crankin them in jr. high and just rockin out. Still sound good after all those years.

My taste went much more eclectic in the late seventies - Punk and New Wave. Love the Ramones, Talking Heads, Clash. They all kicked it in one fashion or another. I have tons of vinyl, picture LPs and even some 3inch CDs if you can believe that. Keith Richards "Talk is Cheap", 3-3 inch CDs in a metal can - very cool.

And if I am going to take this thread into another area - Echo and The Bunneymen, The Cure, Throwing Muses, The English Beat, and The Smiths (early stuff) all cranked as far as I'm concerned.

... funny, I loved a lot of the Punk/New Wave in HS too... Ramones, Clash (London Calling might be the best double album ever pressed IMO), some more Industrial type stuff too like Ministry and Skinny Puppy, and harder punk like the Anti-Nowhere League and Death Sentence. And can't ever leave the Sex Pistols out of a punk thread.

We also had a really good local punk scene in my little city in the mid to late eighties with bands that had some more global success too like the Demics, 63 munroe, The Dayglo Abortions, and The Forgotten Rebels. I was Social Director on Student Council and I got the Rebels to play one of our dances. It was bad. They were totally off their rockers. They were shooting up in a high school change room... ah man, it was a bad scene.

Good dance though :-)

I've never touched Gin since :-)

For Whom The Bell Tolls - Metallica

But for my all time favorite group - Rush - who could believe that only three men produce such quality sound and for so long?

Xanadu by Rush is just an awesome spectacle.

Shame on you for not mentioning your fellow Canadians Mark :)

The only thing I have left is my Washburn semi. I sold my Gretsch lime green "Country Gentleman" when we had our first baby in '89. Got $3,800 for it, so it was worth doing.

I'm a student in high school and currently in the school jazz band, however jazz music is not near the top of my favorites list. I play pretty much the modern stuff like RHCP, U2, and Weezer, and ocassionaly like to play some of the acoustic stuff like John Mayer and DMB, which I know conflicts with most of the musical interests of the previous posts. However, I've learned 10 or so Led Zeppelin songs!I've been playing for about 7 years and I currently have a Black Epiphone Riviera, my personal favortie guitar, for my Jazz stuff and play with an Epiphone Explorer for the harder stuff. I also have a decent Fender acoustic.
