    I'm a guitar player and I grew up listening to the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Lynard Skynard, Deep Purple, Ted Nugent, Whitesnake, Rainbow, Rod Stewart, AC/DC,
    Thin Lizzy, the stones and John Fogarty.

    Any of that will do me thank you.

    Best place on my telly for music is 'Later with Jools Holland' it is brilliantly eclectic, like Me.

    I have found every decade has it's good and mediocre stuff, e.g the 70s had 'Pink Floyd' and 'Showaddywaddy', go figure.

    Gary Moore used to play with Thin Lizzy before he went solo.
    Yes a tragic loss. The drummer with them ( Brian Downey) lived in the same street as me growing up in Ballyfermot in Dublin.

    But the poster above me says he did not like Pink Floyd.
    I love Pink Floyd. How could anyone not like them????

    Don't mention any of those old BBC dj's.
    They are all being arrested now, thanks to what Savile did.
    I said to myself when Dave Lee Travis was arrested, surely he must have known.
    They all must know something went on. Everyone there must have known something.
    The likes of Wogan, Tony Blackburn, Peter Powell.
    Don't tell me they knew nothing

    Aw. Poor old showaddywaddy.
    They tried to bring back the 50's,
    but I guess most people just wanted to forget the 50's.

    Forget the '50's? A pox on you.
    If not for the '40's and '50's the rest...well the good stuff, wouldn't have happened.
    Listen to who, the really good, bands, singers, musicians "learned" from.

    I agree with you.
    Most rock and roll music came from the blues which has it's roots in the 1930's.
    If there was no Robert Johnson there may never have been an Eric Clapton.

    I agree with him in that one must expand ones vistas, or at the very least experiment with the "new".

    I agree. Are you one of those people who did not vote for the police commissioner?
    I heard on Sky News that in Newport, Nobody at all bothered to vote.

    That must have been really funny that all that trouble was gone to and no one showed up.

    Could you not have got into your car, had the police playing on the stereo
    and driven 15 miles to vote for the commissioner?

    You might have got a prize for the only person who voted.
