My second passion after motorsport is music. I love discovering and listening to new music and i try to listen to as much as possible.

In the past five years i've come to realise just how much music is out there to be explored. There are literally millions of artists to choose from and i know i'll never listen to them all but i'd like to sample a good percentage of them so i started collecting and at this moment in time i've listened to 895 album artists totalling 3910 albums.

Me thinks this is going to be a life long mission. Is anyone else out there on a similar mission?

My music mission is a bit easier: collect everything from the Pet Shop Boys!

They are by far my favourite band ever. I also like artist as Vangelis or Kraftwerk, but also a good string orchestra gives me shivers!

I also make music myself, but it's pure for fun. Totally no ambition.

I like the Punk-Music from the 70's and 80's

I collect everything from the Ramones. I also like "newer" bands wich sound like the Ramones. Example: Riverdales, Huntingtons, etc.

From the 80's I like Bad Religion, Social Distortion, Offspring, Adolescents + Dead Kennedys

These Bands sound like "very easy music", but it's really hard to play on my own guitar at this speed.  :punk:

Avenged Sevenfold is pretty amazing, lyrically and musically  ;)

Just listen to "Lost" "Unbound The Wild Ride" "Trashed And Scattered" etc...

There is so much meaning in their music it's amazing !

Since racing, which we all love I guess, is about "driving around in circles" (Lauda is my hero), and is monotonous yet exciting, like all of you, I love The Fall, Velvet Underground, Kraftwerk, Country Teasers, Brainbombs and other bands that go roundandroundandround again.

I've been through so many phases of music tastes over the years and i don't stop liking anything so my music taste covers a lot now.

I agree Avenged Sevenfold are very good. I have all their stuff and have seen them live once. I also have Ramones, Offspring, Bad Religion. I have started appreciating pop now too so have some Pet Shop Boys and will be going to see Simple Minds this summer.

I have very little electronica so far so i need to get some more stuff by the likes of Vangelis, Kraftwerk and Jean Michel Jarre

My collection has increased to 904 artists totalling 3936 albums this weekend

I have nothing from either of any of those grego and i know that Frank was a prolific recorder of albums.

I really enjoy listening to new music. Whenever i listen to something for the first time i listen out for tracks i really like and put that track in my favourites playlist. Since i started doing this i've added 620 tracks to my favourites plalist from 54004 tracks. Something tells me i'm hard to please  :lol:

Hi Stewart,

I too have been on a lifelong music mission and it's nowhere near finished yet.
Making great life affirming discoveries get's more difficult but it's still sweet when it happens.
I'm mainly a fan of obscure 60's/70's psychedelia/krautrock/soundtrack/Jazz  
from all over the world.

Here's what I'm listening to at the moment.

1,  Les Dunes d'Ostende - Francois De Roubaix
2,  Mother Nature, Father Earth - The Music Machine
3,  E Muzik - NEU!
4,  Les Garde Volent - Jean-Claude Vannier
5,  Slip Inside This House - The Thirteenth Floor Elevators
6,  Psalter - Faust
7,  Paperhouse - Can
8,  Journey In Satchidanada - Alice Coltrane
9,  Ladyfriend - The Byrds
10, Afro Harping - Dorothy Ashby
11, Expecting - Minnie Ripperton
12, The Edge - David McCallum
13, 13(Death March) - Jimmy Smith
14, Kyrie Elesion - The Electric Prunes
15, Zig Zag Wanderer -Captain Beefheart

If any of these float your boat my work is done, some of my best discoveries have been through tips from friends.
As for contemporary music there is a band called Agratron who I like very much, they release their first album later this year.

Burt :thumbup:

I agree, Avenged Sevenfold is a great band. My favorite thing of the band is the drummer, 'The Rev.' (R.I.P died in 2009 :*(. Unbelieveable drum fills makes him in my opinion the best drummer in the century yet.
Epic drum fill of Beast and the Harlot:
(skip to 3:30)
This is the drum fill, played with Guitar Hero Smash Hits on the hardest level:


But still, I do prefer the (Hard) Rock of the 1970's, 1980's and some 1990's.
My favorite artist is Van Halen.
Good reason: The guitarist, Eddie Van Halen, is one of the greatest guitarist ever, and he was born in holland. And i'm from holland!
This solo is mind-blowing (Eruption):

And I do like Metallica  very much, too.

Hi Burt, well i've heard of one of those 15 artists  :shock: That just shows me i have plenty more great music to discover.

Stu i have an uncle and cousin who are serious music fans and my collection is nothing compared to them who have 20,000 albums between them and many more they've downloaded and haven't yet bought on hard copy yet.

Although i love all music rock and metal is where my heart really lies. I agree The Rev was a very talented drummer Yannick and Eddie Van Halen is a great guitarist who unfortunately lost the plot a little not so long ago but i'm looking forward to hearing the new Van Halen album with David Lee Roth back in the band.

I'll always be a fan of the big four of thrash (Anthrax, Megadeth, Metallica and Slayer). I see they are on the bill at Sonisphere this year which should make for an amazing gig.

I refuse to be left behind the times and i really don't want to say something like "thats music, its just noise! When i was a lad....."  :D I had enough of that from my parents who thought music stopped after the Beatles and Elvis
