My personal musical journey began at age 12, when it was popular to go to the skating rink every weekend. Back then (1972) I remember hearing a lot of Stevie Wonder, Lou Reed, Elton John, Doobie Brothers, War, and Edgar Winters. Then later, around age 15, it was disco at the rink. K. C. & Sunshine Band, Wild Cherry, Bee Gee’s, Cool & The Gang, Average White Band, and Ohio Players.

my next phase of music was late teens & party girl music. I fell in love with Aerosmith (still my #1 band), Bad Company, Journey, Outlaws, Blackfoot, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Boston, The Cars, Van Halen, Foreigner, Talking Heads, Rush, Blue Oyster Cult, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, Triumph, ZZ Top.

the 80’s was pretty much dominated by the bands mentioned above and southern rock. Molly Hatchet, 38 Special, Allman Brothers, Little Feet, Rossington Collins Band, April Wine, Nantucket, Stevie Ray Vaughan.

before I started going skating, I was exposed to hard rock of the 60’s by my brothers. Bands like Iron Butterfly, The Who, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, SteppenWolf, Deep Purple, Free, Blue Cheer, Uriah Heep, and James Gang. Of course, I was very young and had no idea those bands would play a bigger role later in my life.

now, I am a rattlehead. I listen to a lot of heavy music. My personal favorite metal genre is symphonic metal followed by progressive metal.
