I like rock of varying kinds and it would probably come fourth, going on my record collection Techno comes top though.

I have been interested in Detroit for a long time now and have this book of photography Detroit After Dark as well as many vinyl records.

Just say David Bowie, recorded most genres, usually a few years before they took off.

Favourite Bowie.,,. Industrial Rock title to the film Lost Highway.


and this synthy thing from the film The Falcon and The Snowman


Film scores should be on my list of top genres.

Clapton is my favourite guitarist, though if I was putting together a supergroup of favourite players it would sound a right mess as would be mostly jazz players with synths too.

I'd probably pick a jazz guitarist to fit with the rest of the supergroup like Jim Hall.

As above, listen to virtually anything and like a load of stuff where the genres get a bit blurred, but;
Blues...
Singer songwriter/ countryish
and a bit of trad Irish...

Don't go for genres as much as artists, too much to choose from - Stevie Ray, Little Feat, Hawkwind, Maiden, Marley, but also Taylor Swift, DeeLite, Specials. Obviously not a millennial ?. Have to say though, still Philthy Phil, Fast Eddy and Lemmy for me - Motorhead, 1980, No Sleep, Ace of Spades - just playing rock 'n' roll. I met up with Lemmy so many times in the 80's and what a great bloke, helped his mates and never sold out. Also some great times with Willy Nelson in London and Austin.
