Inspired by the long-running "What are you listening to?" thread, I had an idea for a bit of an experimental thread to pool all our respective musical knowledge and possibly broaden our horizons for anyone who's interested. (Given that my threads usually poll about two replies we'll see how long it lasts!) The idea is to post regarding music that you like listening to, ie: a favourite band or song, a concerto, symphony or whatever takes your fancy, and other kind TMpers will pop on and, based on that, will suggest other bands, songs etc. of a similar genre that might tickle your fancy. (It'd be easiest if we quote initial posts so we know who's suggesting what to who!) For example, if brassbandmaestro popped on and said he's recently discovered Eddie Van Halen and was looking for a few more guitar gods to listen to, I might suggest he look up Eric Johnson, Yngwie Malmsteen or Joe Satriani. So I'll start: Currently having one of my digressions back into the big hair and spandex era of metal, having unearthed an old copy of the album "Look what the cat dragged in" by Poison I've sparked an interest in the early 80s. Any suggestions for where I might explore next?
