Home Up



OK, now my music tastes have changed and evolved over time.

Now, my basic music is Classic Rock, from the 50s on.  Along with that is Blues, many forms of Jazz, Classical Instrumental, Opera (yes, I like opera!) and of course Country & Western (more classic than current).  Cindy and I both enjoy Country & Western most of the time.  We both agree, there's no need to waste our ears with Acid Rock, Rap or any other unintelligible and anger-filled form of music..

My favorite C & W artist is Gene Watson, Classic Rock is Steve Miller Band and Blue Oyster Cult.

My ability with music is limited to my ears.  Now that the house is 'done', I hope to start learning the bagpipes this Summer.  I have a friend who lives near us that has offered to show me the basics, if we can get a schedule to work.  I'm quite sure the dogs in the neighborhood will not be pleased by my efforts.
