    I don't care for Loretta Lynn, but I really like her Motocross track.

    Just for fun, I'll share mine:

    Janis Joplin : Vocals are too expressive for my taste
    Frank Zappa : I tried and went to see Zappa plays Zappa, a bit overrated for what it is
    Van Halen
    Kiss
    and last but not least Nitro... ugh :confused:

    First thing that comes to mind is Bruce Springsteen... overrated in my opinion.
    Oh and Tommy Emmanuel, someone needs to tell him that sometimes less is more. :rolleyes:

    Okay. Its staying civil, so let's do this.

    Nirvana. Just too emo.

    The Beatles changed popular music. However, their songs sound better whenperformed by someone else.

    +1 on Zeppelin.

    Bob Dylan. See my thoughts on the Beatles.

    Aerosmith.

    I'm a big Rolling Stones fan, but Jagger solo is... not to my liking. He needs Keef to keep him down to earth.

    Kiss.

    I'm sure I could think of some more.

    The Grateful Dead. (is it a coincidence that "grate" is part of their name?)

    Beyond that, I can find something to like in anything. (It's kind of required in my occupation.)

    But there are a couple bands that I used to love for whom I, at some point, lost all musical respect: U2 and REM.

    Foreigner-the epitome of corporate rock (yeeecchhh!!!)

    Rolling Stones-post Tattoo You (some decent tunes there, probably their last really good record) I'm terrified at the thought that Mick Jagger, with all the hell he's put his body through, might outlive me (his dad lived into his 90s, and was a health freak-Mick has picked up a lot of those same traits, and genetics)

    Just about ALL emo bands of the last 20 years-these kids haven't faced real life yet, but have more angst than a roomful of insurance executives watching a hurricane roll into a big city...

    Modern Country-there's a few decent artists and bands out there (Zac Brown comes to mind) but most of it is Cowboy Rock, or Nashville Pop-a special circle in hell contains nothing but Rascal Flatts and Taylor Swift as a soundtrack...

    I'll play,

    Beatles.

    Led Zeppelin (I love the sound and ability of each of the members, just don't care for what they did with it.)

    U2 - Cannot stand these guys. If you watch It Might Get Loud, Edge is just standing around mouthbreathing trying to figure out what Jack and Jimmy are doing. If I turn on more than two pedals, my wife teases me and calls me Edge.

    Aerosmith.

    Tom Petty.

    Pixies

    Def Leppard

    Metallica.

    All country, rap, opera, bluegrass, folk, and that ridiculous dubstep, dancing, and party music.
    Bob dylan
    hendrix
    joe satriani
    janis joplin

    I'm gobsmacked. I always thought it was impossible to find someone who doesn't like Tom.

    I was going to say that I hate everything I've ever heard by Rush but they have a new song out called The Wreckers which I actually like. I guess it's because it sounds nothing like any other Rush song I've heard.

    B.B. King

    PRO: Trademark vibrato is good and a great singer.

    CON: One or two notes does NOT say it all, sorry. I get nothing from his playing and I have attempted for over 30 years to find something that
    moves me. Meh.
    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Santana

    PRO: Instantly recognizable by his good tone and great songwriting.

    CON: Only knows about 5 pentatonic licks. For someone who keeps name dropping Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane in every interview, they sure haven't rubbed off on him.

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    Dylan

    PRO: Considered to be a great lyricist.

    CON: Worst singing voice in history. He should have stuck to songwriting and have others sing his songs.

    --------------------------------------------

    Tom Waits

    (See Dylan)

    Duh! Bought my first guitar, of course a Telecaster, because of Pete Townsend and
    Keith Richards. Country arrived later here overseas. All Rockbashers, it gives me cold
    sweat to imagine the piles in front of your stereos. Must read like: New kids on the block,
    Shakira, Madonna, Take That, Petshop Boys, DAVID HASSELHOF and last but not least
    LIBERACE. Come on lets stay serious.

    Almost all Metal and Hair Band music.

    I don't consider Rap music, so its not on the list. It is street poetry.

    Pretentious Jazz that is impossible to follow.

    +3 Van Halen

    Celine Dion
    Chicago
    Boston
