    I love music. My older faves are The Dominoes, 5 Royales, The Platters, Etta James, Dinah Washington, Shirley & Lee. Late 40's and 50's Do-Wop and R & B.

    The Rolling Stones- I just was not a big fan.

    Yea, the Clash rocked forty years ago, cutting edge. Can't you, like most real music lovers I know, appreciate good music no matter the era? Heck I like Buddy Holly, JJ Kale, Devo, the Black keys, ZZ

    Nope, actually I am a Joy Division/New Order/The Clash/The Jam/Style Council type of person, but thanks for playing.

    Sounds like Taylor Swift, 1D, or Beiber is more up your alley. You probably wouldn't understand real rock and roll.
