cyghost's favorite character topic fired off this topic in my head.

What is your favorite musician?

Mine is Nick Cave. He often has a lot of religious themes in his songs and I think he is a Christian or some variation, his songs and lyrics kick ass e.g. the album "Murder Ballads". Just the album's title sucked me into his dark perverse mind. His fictional books are equally depraved.

My favourite musician is Lee Ritenour. Followed closely by George Benson and Joe Pass. (These are all jazz guitarists).

Jon Bon Jovi   Cheesy


I like all kinds of music and appreciate the music more than I actually do the artist, but Jon has provided consistent awesome stuff for so long he is an easy choice. Second choice? Impossible to choose  Smiley

Favourite muso... now there is a very difficult one. I listen to everything from classical to hard, hard metal. So damn.... I'm stuck. It's anywhere between Beethoven and Korn. Seriously, my tastes are VERY diverse.

I think, to pick a fairly modern artist, I'll go with Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails).

A) He's a "muso" as opposed to a group.
B) He experiments and tries new things all the time, makes the most bizarre sounds "listenable".
C) He gives away albums on the internet, taking donations instead of charging. iow: He does it for the art, not just the money.

Impossible to choose, though lately I have been rediscovering LIVE. Favorite song at the moment is The Beauty of Grey. I often listen to it while sitting in the traffic and it makes me let people in. Now that's powerful stuff!

OK, if it's traffic tolerance you want - then Norah Jones or even Michael Franks.  Even driving a Kombi armoured front and back, I've let taxis in under their influence.

Michael Franks? Yay - MF is awesome! In fact I have about 5 of his songs in my regular repertoire, most of which I perform at my jazz gigs (e.g. Sunday afternoon gigs). My favourite is 'Popsicle Toes' but I also sing 'Lady Wants To Know', 'Jardin Botanico' and 'Monkey See, Monkey Do.' I also do his arrangement of 'I Will Survive'. CoooWELL. If you enjoy Michael Franks you have my instant respect. In fact, when I first went to my  girl friend's house, one of the first things I noticed was 3 (yes THREE) MF CDs in her kitchen on her menu-stand she uses to put CDs she listens to daily. I was blown away. Many people refer to me as the SAfrican MF because of my voice (similar to MF) and guitar style. Nice one kollectiv.

Love all three and had no idea they are related.

I don't hear new music except on the radio and the only music station in my area is KFM.  nuff said.  Is there anyone else who misses Chris Prior?  Whatever happened to him?
