Ok, since we are all from different areas, with different backgrounds, what kind of music do you people like to listen to in the truck or at home, or (who cares) wherever you are? Here's a few records/bands/artists that I like:
Johnny Cash - The "Man In Black" is still amazing!
Avail - Melodic, yet somehow hard band from Richmond, VA. (Don't expect anyone to know them).
The Chieftains - Great Celtic music, yet have also done songs with the Rolling Stones and others. (Love Celtic music!)
Punk Rock - A nice little hold over from the days of yore that still gets my head moving.
30's and 40's blues singers – (Who can't love Ella Fitzgerald)
Bluegrass - Some great old records out there, but also some really nice new ones. Anyone heard Hayseed Dixie - A Bluegrass Tribute to AC/DC (a nice mix for sparkies ).
Old Country – As in Bob Wills (“The best dam fiddler player to ever live”).
British/Scandinavian Metal Bands – No better way to stay young than to listen to Metal!!! (666 )
You Guys? Come on, we all listen to music!

Elec I think you mean Bob Wills. Asleep at the Wheel does a lot of old Bob Wills tunes. I am fortunate to live in a town with a large and diverse selection of music. We have one of the best independent radio stations in the country and tons of local musicians.The casinos draw the bigger acts. Ever heard Hank Williams the third? He was here last month. does a couple of his grandads tunes real well before busting into his punk routine. How bout The Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash? I could go on all night. Blues, rock, swing, country. Not too fond of most jazz. Tried Celtic sorry just can't handle it.

Blues, Classical, Zappa. I've hooked up an apartment house (not energized) service to a receiver, and used a pair of speakers to "hot test" it. Everyone liked it so much that they started showing up on the job with their own speakers with 120 volt cord caps
