As a gentleman of advancing years, I've been into music longer than I care to, or even can remember. I love all kinds of music, but my first love has always been Rock, especially the bluesy sounds of Led Zeppelin, Free, UFO, Whitesnake etc.
I'm loving many of the new Metal bands that have cropped up in the past few years, but really I'll give anything ago. As long as it rocks, makes me think, or just gets my jumping about like a loon, then it's good for me!
