Alright, so I have this shiny new blog and I want to post more... So I figured I'd go with the usual "Here's what I listen to. You'd better like it too." post. Enjoy :)
I'd say my main musical tastes are firmly rooted in rock/indie rock. I grew up on Rush. F*** yeah. I'm a drummer (who also plays guitar) so Neil Peart was my idol growing up. A lot of people don't really get what Rush is all about.. so I'm gonna suggest just a few songs that seriously rock. (And not in the "old person" sense of the word.) Btw, to listen to these, I suggest just typing them into grooveshark dot com. Seriously awesome website. and research orbit downloader and how to use it with grooveshark. that's all i'm gonna say. :)
Sick Rush Songs:
La Villa Strangiato - I have to start with this. If you appreciate guitar, check out this solo. EPIC.
Driven - Very Bass-oriented song. Try to get the Different Stages Live version. Sweet bass solo.
Analog Kid - Just a fun-sounding song.
I'm gonna end with Natural Science. Just a great summary of Rush. 8 minutes of rock. What else could you want?
Okay, now that Rush is out of the way, I do have *new* music taste as well. In fact, I don't really listen to Rush that often anymore, but I still think everyone should be aware of how great they are. And they are still my favorite live band.
Actually, I think I'm gonna share my newer music in a new post. So let me know what you think of the Rush songs!
