    Country Music and Drums

    I like her as a person, but I am not a huge fan of her music. 9 to 5 was pretty good, but the other stuff just doesn't grab my attention and "I will Always Love You" is very annoying, but I do think Whitney Houston did a good rendition of it, but the lyrics are still annoying. Note: Dolly with...

    Do you have any tattoo?

    I have massive scars/deformities from birth, so tattoos haven't appealed to me. I spent much of my youth hiding the stuff and that's why I can't swim.

    Who plays blues or jazz?

    I can play some blues guitar, but I am nothing like Stevie Ray Vaughn or BB King, but it isn't bad.

    Religious or Political Discussions?

    It depends on the crowd. A lot of people get all psycho about stuff. A lot of people cannot handle opposing views. I can listen to opposing views, but the problem is that people falsely will say I cannot accept their views. In reality, I was always sane and very tolerant.

    What do you like about Raggae songs?

    The beat is a lot different than rock. It's just very exotic compared to more well-known stuff. Anyone feel the same?

    What's your favorite Bob Marley song?

    I can't name one. In fact, probably a lot of lesser known songs are as good and/or better than well known ones. Well, that's the case with a lot of popular bands in many genres.

    Why do you think Raggae is always criticized?

    All sorts of people in many genres of music use drugs. I suppose that relates to the association of Marcus Garvey and all that, but I don't think, for instance, Bob Marley was a fanatic on that. I don't know how many Reggae listeners are hardcore Rastafarians. Why would it be relevant to...

    Do you feel alternative is a term that doesn't mean anything?

    It seems like a lot of what is now mainstream was once called alternative. Anyway, when people say alternative, what is it an alternative of? Well, in the late 80s and early 90s, if you weren't into glam metal/rock or U2 or Phil Collins or Guns in Roses, maybe you preferred The Pixies, The...

    Country Music and Drums

    Country and Western has some interesting beats. Nonetheless, drums were not always welcome in country. I suppose it was kind of a racist thing to big extent. Now, some music like bluegrass doesn't seem to really need drums at all, but there are bluegrass beats. It was funny when Buddy...

    Reggae Being Associated with Drugs

    Reggae isn't always about drugs, and you could say drugs are a big thing in rock and jazz also. Nonetheless, some people will make fun of you and any mention of reggae. Well, it's all good fun, but it's really inaccurate and silly. Reggae is also another untouchable music where Caucasian...

    Who plays blues or jazz?

    Where I live in Southwest Virginia, USA, we have the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion. I haven't been to it, but it sounds interesting. Of course, there would be bands besides well-known rock acts.

    Reading Music

    Who can read music? How well can you read? Do you feel everyone should read music? How does reading music broaden your horizons? Myself, not being a dorky showoff, lol, but I can read music very well, but I took piano lessons in 2nd grade and then studied percussion in high school...

    Saddest song you have ever listened to?

    I don't know what is the saddest song but Drown by Smashing Pumpkins tops the list. I suppose it's about somebody's death. Another sad one is James Taylor's Fire and Rain.

    How to get signed?

    What is the best plan? Do you all know anyone who got signed and know their plan? Do you all know the secrets of a popular signed band?

    What's the best place to promote your songs?

    It would be the social media platforms most people are on. However, I'm not sure what would be the best one. Well, YouTube and Tik Tok are about videos. However, videos can be easily accessed from other social media platforms like Facebook.

    Do you trust people?

    Trust is earned. However, it's hard to gain trust with some people because you might promise things and then things screw up. Well, there are people who can't take no for an answer. In that case, you might promise them the moon to get them to go away, but the price is trust.

    What are some very good rock bands today?

    What do you consider to be something very interesting? Why is that the case? How would you compare them to classic rock bands?

    Who plays classical music?

    Also, who has simply played it, but not as a hobby and/or profession? Well, what do you play? How long have you played the instrument? How did you learn? Do you play in a group? How good are you?
