Music

When I mentioned music as a segment of things I planned to write about in this space, my webmaster agreed with the idea…specifically saying, “Oh yeah, how could you not write about music?” He’s seen my collection of over 700 CDs. I’m a fan of many different types of music, but prog rock is probably nearest to my heart. I am a die-hard Rush fan that has had the good fortune to see them 23 times and shed real tears at Neil Peart’s passing. I also really, really love ZZ Top, Jeff Beck, Foo Fighters, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Howard Jones, Tears For Fears, Sting, Paul McCartney, King Crimson, Yes, okay, you get it. I like a lot of stuff.

And like most music fans, I enjoy the discussions about it with equally dedicated fans, even the Beatles vs. Elvis and Rush vs. Zeppelin arguments I’ve had with people. Heck, I may even host a debate here with an equally dedicated fan sometime. I’ll let you know.

In this space you will find some pieces I’ve written about albums that I consider to be seriously underrated, which is what BAYNH stands for…the Best Albums You’ve Never Heard. I could write plenty about artists and albums that I consider to be hugely overrated, but I’m determined to keep this site upbeat and positive, and share a Great Number of Things.

If you’re a music fan, and you’re enjoying the reads, by all means drop a line and let me know.
