Music. My first and only Love.
The Kinds of Music I Like:
The list is literally endless. The best way to define what I like is everything that is played with musical instruments and has talent and work put into it. (And More) Of course there are styles I care less about but still admire. Reggie is one of them.
My main favorite is modern Country-Rock:
My father is a country musician in Budapest, Hungary. He is the Manager, Guitarist, Mandolinist, Dobroist, lead and backup vocalist and manager of the 23 year old Warner recording group called:
He got me hooked on Country. If you want to learn more about country go here:
I also like Rock:
My ultimate favorites are:
The pictures are links.
There's not much to say about these two. Floyd just rocks. So as Dream Theater. I had the opportunity to see Dream Theater in Budapest, Hungary in the Summer of 1998. I can not say that it was the best concert I have ever been to but it is darn close.
I also like rock guitarists like Joe Satriani (I saw him in March of 1996 in Las Vegas, NV - now that was the best concert I have ever been to) and Steve Vai (Him I saw in October of 1999 in Lincoln, NE)
I also like other hard rock bands like Ugly Kid Joe (My dream is to see them live one day) Bon Jovi (Saw them in the Summer of 1996 in Budapest, Hungary)
Also like artists like Chriss Rea and Mark Knpofler (Dire Straits) Queen, etc. List is endless.
The best Irish Rock bend on the face of the Earth today is the Levellers. (I saw them in the Budapest, Hungary in the summer of 1996) I also like U2, Therapy, (did see them too in Budapest, Hungary in the Summer of 1997) Oasis etc.
Not much to say here. Steve, we miss you.
Of course there is nothing I like more then the music of my homeland. My personal god and rolemodel is Tibor (Tibusz) Tatrai. The best guitarist on earth. I rarely got to see him live. And I have never seen him live with his main band. (Tatrai Band) One of these days tough. I did see him with B.B King (the King) in Budapest and I did see him twice in guitar camp. (I actually jammed with him) My father knows him so I got to meet him a couple of times at musical events.
I could go on with a long list of Hungarian Bands here but I will not. I love 'em all (Akos, MEX, Irigy Honaj Mirigy, DemjÚn, Charlie, etc.)
Chopin, Frederic (1810-1849), Dvorak, Antonin (1841-1904), Tchaikovsky, Peter Ilyich (1840-1893), Vivaldi, Antonio (1678-1741), From them I did not find much I did not like.
Beethoven, Ludwig van (1770-1827) - His symphonies I do not care for but I love his piano pieces. (Moonlight forever) Liszt, Franz (1811-1886) - His rhapsodies are the greatest. I do not care for much of his other stuff.
Musicals: Love 'em. Webber, Schonberg etc. Though I do not like opera.
Soundtracks: I love John Williams' and Jerry Goldsmith's work. The best soundtrack score ever was Star Trek - Insurrection by Mr. Goldsmith. (never even nominated for the Oscars)
List Is Endless:
Bluegrass, Jazz (I love these live)
