I do not like people who are elitist when it comes to music. Why not be open and discover all the different styles of sound their are out there. Life is much to short to only be sticking to one style of music and your also have a richer understanding of music if you do. Just because you have yet to hear something you like in a certain style of music does not mean it is not out there, keep looking. Their is good tunes in every style of music.
I love to collect music on vinyl, tape and CD and listen to them through my hi-fi separates system.
John Peel is my musical hero. He played so many weird and wonderful acts on his radio show which the mainstream always seemed to stay away from. Mr Peel was always at the forefront of new musical styles. He was the first person to play prog rock, punk, indie, grindcore, hip-hop and electronic music on the British radio. He was even the first person to play Nirvana long before they became cool on the British radio. Mr peel will always be a radio DJ legend and without him I would probably be another dumb mainstream pop fan. RIP John 1939-2004.
