That sounds good, can't get into hip hop, I've tried and just can't do it. So I guess that puts me at the back side of the generation gap, yet I love Big and Rich. I've seen thier specials, and they come across like the crazy type, do any thing kind of guys, that are funny and just want to have fun, which is the way I was in the younger days, that's why I still enjoy watching those kind of musicians. I guess "Ride a cowboy" would be kind of country hip hop, but I think they have allot of talent. I like all the new generation outlaw music. The way I understand, if music isn't progressing, then it's just standing still, and country music stood still long enough. Everytime I hear anything off the Beatles "White" album I always think of Nancy,Laura,and Pat sitting around the table at Pat's house playing cards, while Laura played that album over and over. Don't know what would be classified as "Top 40" or if it even exsit.I got into "New Wave" mellow, spacy, electronic, great technical players (my oppinion) artist like Patrick O'Hearn,Suzanne Ciani, Graig Chaquico, and Ayman. I even played those for my father in his final days. I'm not the "Moody Blues" nerd I used to be, but I will always love the writings of Justin Hayward, that man just writes, sings and plays what I like. Great solo albums. I'm living in Spokane,Washington and it's located about 65 miles from the Canadian border, so we hear allot of thier country music that isn't nation wide. They are putting out some great songs. Well, that's it from me... Bye for now.
