Hey, I resemble that remark. Though a veritable 80's kid, I was a young teen in the late seventies and so heard most of the "classic" rock bands. Ozzie, Led, and others. I was never the metal head/guitar freak that many of my friends were. I listened to their biggest radio hits. I never had the music collections that my friends did. They worshiped the guitar players. I couldn't give you a SINGLE current or recent pop star's name or radio hit. Don't know, don't care. None of this current tripe suits me.Geez! I guess I am really out of it! I recognized very few names mentioned so far. Guess I am going to have to stick the Victrola in the closet and pick up one of those new eight-tracks and buy some new music. I have been listening to some Badfinger tonight; before that some Ella Fitzgerald. My taste in music is pretty ecletic.
I think it is great that you and your son share this sort of thing. My dad and I never had a stitch of commonality in our music till his later years.I basically listen to what my son is into at the moment...currently:
lots of old cowboy music (Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Sons of the Pioneers)
the beatles (a lot of magical mystery tour and the white album)
