Well, ya'll can keep her, but I do salute many of Detroit's musical giants: Iggy, MC5, Death(the Hackney Brothers), Mitch Ryder, Motown and so many more.Let's not forget Bob Seger and mighty Silver Bullet Band, as well as The White Stripes!!!

LD, your statement about music & the age of 13 is so true. Evey generation has it's own brand of music from around that age and their tatse's never really change. I know this is very true of myself as I would spend all day stuck between 1968 and 1974 left to my own devices and while I listen to a lot of new music, most of it that really grabs my attention wouldn't sound out of place at all on many of my vintage albums. Singer/songwriters and either sparse acoustic or biting electric guitars with the occasional piano(not to be confused with sythns) performance thrown in are as much the sounds of modern music I like as classic rock I grew up with. And of course my generation didn;t understand punk and they didn't get hair metal and few of us get hip hop but each generation has a set of music values that usuually centers around when they became teenagers. That's why I always answer the question "What kind of music do you like?" with the answer "Good music." Because any genre can have good or bad music if you are just open minded enough to listen.Beautifully put, my friend. I am very anti-genre, I've just never seen the point in having to categorize everything. And I especially don;t undertsand not listening to something because it falls into a particular genre. I hear people all the time say"I DON'T listen to rap, or country, metal" etc. I think a person cheats themselves out of a chance to expand their horizons because of a label someone else slaps on a piece of music. For me personally, there will never be enough hours in the day to hear everything I'm curious about-or see all the places I wanna see etc. Variety is truly the spice of life!!!
