    Okay my fellow crusts name the people/groups/bands [call it what ya like] that were a major influence on your musical tastes?

    For me it was:

    * Pink Floyd and Yes who introduced me to astral travelling way back in the sixties,
    * Walter Carlos for his [now her] interpretation of classical music using the Moog Synthesizer,
    * Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Uriah Heep for their then heavy rock.

    * above all Frank Zappa and Captain Beefhart for introducing me to complete and utter madness during my early teenage formative years.


    So, all you Crusty's ya gonna play along and share?

    Paul McCartney and Wings for intruoducing me to Rock and Roll music.
    Jack Wall and Jeremy Soule for proving to me that Video Game music is more than MIDI
    "DJ Silence" gave me a whole new view on what really is "chill out" music.


    However, at the top, are THE WHO, such a strong and energetic band that still blows me away, despite the fact I may never see them. They are my primary inspiration.

    It all started for me in 6th grade with the Monkees and the Herman's Hermits. I still like them. I moved on to classic rock before it was classic. The 80's came in and the music sucked, so I listened to classic rock for a decade, the 90's still sucked so I went and searched out earlier music from the 50's and 60's. I have found that I like almost any music before the 80's. I think it was rap music that made me crusty. I even like elevator music more now than classic rock.

    I can say that I'm not much of a music fan myself, but my time was during the 70's era. I liked mostly the heavy metal bands of the era. I didn't take to disco, punk, or new wave music at all.

    My faves are:
    Led Zeppelin
    Black Sabbath
    Ozzy Osbourne
    AC/DC
    Alice Cooper
    Judas Priest
    Nazareth

    When i was a wee lad, me moms got me a record player, one of those old ones that was a box that opened w/ a speaker on the bottom. My first record was the star wars orchestrated theme. I used to listen to it for hours.

    Then my uncles gave me some beatles stuff, and a box of old 45's from the 60's that would probably be worth some cheddar if I still had them.

    In 5th grade I started listening to Van Halen. Then in 6th a friend and I were all into Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, we thought were were the heaviest rockers ever. Then that guy moved away to St. Louis, he started sending me tapes of slayer, venom, metallica, destruction, etc... Then I got into thrash metal, when it was new, and not all generic midi drums and cookie monster vocals like most of the extreme metal of today.

    Later I started also getting into all kinds of other music, some blues for awhile, some jazz and jazz fusion, punk and post punk, and then industrial and electronic music of all kinds.

    I listen to a large variety of stuff all the time, lately, I have been listening to bands like these:

    Download
    Genocidio 1968
    Plateau
    Ket Vector
    Mercyful Fate
    Samhain/Misfits
    The Deadfly Ensemble
    Venetian Snares

    And more stuff I can't think of right now that you have never heard of and don't want to.
