|Here are some of my favorite singers and bands with links to their websites.|
|Neil Diamond-Neil Diamond is my favorite singer/songwriter. His music is timeless.I love all of his albums and it is hard to pick a favorite. I have been a fan since 1972 and I have allot of his albums on vinyl. My favorite albums are Beautiful Noise, Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Seranade. I have been a fan since 1972 and have seen him many, many times in concert. Keep up with his tours and events at his website.
The Corrs-This Irish band is really great. Their music is very popular in Europe and is now beginning to be popular here in the states. They are a family of very talented performers. My favorite albums are "Live in Dublin" and "Forgiven not Forgotten". The Celtic influence is very apparent here.
U2-This band is by far one of the very best bands ever. U2.com is the best place to keep up with Bono, the Edge, Larry and Adam and to talk with other fans. My favorite U2 albums are Achtung Baby, Rattle and Hum, and All that you can't leave behind. These guys rock! This a great site.
Jim Brickman-I was drawn to Jim Brickman when he was just starting out by his wonderful piano playing and his song Angel Eyes is my favorite of all his songs to date. My favorite Albums are By Heart and Simple Things.
Enya-I love the music of enya because it is soothing and calm. My favorite Album is "A day without Rain" and I just got Watermark which is very good.
Thirty Odd Foot of Grunts- This band is a Australian Bar Band and even though alot of their music is very rough I like them alot. This website has some good bio information on the principals of this band, but isn't updated very often. There is a dicussion board with allot of dedicated fans. I only have two of their albums, Gaslight and BLOC. I have favorite songs on both albums. Their newest album is called "Other ways of Speaking" and has some really good stuff on it.
Meatloaf-Bat out of Hell is one of my favorite Albums. My favorite song being "Two out of Three ain't bad" . Last summer (2002) I was able to see him in concert and he was really good. I also had really good seats and was able to take some really great pictures. (click here to see some of my pictures). If you like Meatloaf. I would recommend reading his book "To Hell and Back ".
Elton John-What a great talent. Elton John's music has been around along time and he continues to make good music. His first greatest hits album was the first album I ever owned of his. Crocodile Rock was popular when I was in High School. His Album the One and Made in England are also favorites. I'm not sure I have just one favorite song, so many of them are really good.
Nickel Creek-This group is a really good young band. Their music is extraordinary and after seeing them last summer in Boulder I was very impressed. They are really good!! Even better in concert than on their CDs. (Click here for my pictures from the Telluride Bluegrass Festival or here for pictures from Keystone, Co concert or here for pictures from City Lights Pavillion-Denver).
Moody Blues-These guys have been one of my favorites for a long time. Their music is great and will always be great. Keys to the Kingdom is my favorite album and I also have a CD called "The story of the Moody blues" (like a greatest hits album) which is a good one. , My favorite songs are Nights in White Satin (of course!).and Lean on me. Justin Hayward and the boys are great. I have seen them 4 times in Concert and 2 of those at Red Rocks Amphitheatre which is one of the best places to see a concert.
