Om mig

Despite being a Brit I grew up in the good ole USA so my musical taste is heavily influenced by American music of that era, e.g. Creedence Clearwater Revival, Doors, Santana, Hendrix, Mountain, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan, ZZ Top (pre-commercial days), Taj Mahal, Robert Cray etc. I love blues, blues-jazz, southern/swamp rock (e.g. Voodoo Cadillac by Southern Culture on the Skids, Delta Moon etc), soul/r n' b (that means James Brown, not Snoop Dogg), and blues-rock such as Jeff Healey Band (Stop Breakin’ Down), John Hiatt (Lincoln Town), John Fogerty (Blueboy), Bonnie Raitt, Rory Block, Carolyn Wonderland (Misunderstood), Jimmie Vaughan etc.

For Americans out there, God bless Austin, TX for giving us Carolyn Wonderland, Jimmie Vaughan etc.

Roosevelt "Booba" Barnes

Taj Mahal



Johnny Winter



Pauline Henry, The Chimes (she's Scottish!)


For British/Irish bands I like Led Zeppelin (2nd album & BBC Sessions), the Stones (Prodigal Son, Saint of Me), Family (Burlesque), Juicy Lucy (Who Do You Love/ Pretty Woman/ Midnight Rider), Taste/Rory Gallagher, Peter Green Splinter Group, The Chimes (Pauline Henry has an incredible voice), Roxy Music (Avalon album is brilliant) etc. But as an incurable romantic there's some soft/slow stuff in my library, anything from Tony Bennett to Elvis to Faith Hill, Basia, Bobby Caldwell etc (don’t knock ‘em, they have/had great voices).

Contemporary music (with a few exceptions) leaves me cold and if I hear rap or hip-hop played in a store I’ll walk out, and I can't stand techno, house, acid, trance, Ibiza-chill crap, X-factor, Cheryl Cole, Sue Boyle, Lady Gaga, Eminem, Justin Bieber/Timberlake, boy bands, etc. For me, real music died with the end of the last century.

I also dig African music. Try these:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcQZvIxZyAU&ob=av2n (Magic System, Bouger Bouger, Cote d'Ivoire) - great dance music and so tight beat

Favourite musicians? Tough call, but in addition to all of the above and also as characters Chuck Berry (if you've seen him live playing "Beer Drinking Woman" or "Mean Old World" you'll know what I mean) and Keith Richards (living testimony to how much self-abuse the human body can withstand).









Legend





A premature farewell to another British icon ... our defense-slashing PM's head should roll overboard
