    I don't listen to it much, but it's as much music as anything after classical. Just like anything else, some of it is terrible and some is terrific, even if I don't listen to it much.

    The Who

    KISS
    Grateful Dead
    Just about any late 60's, early 70's anti Vietnam war/anti Nixon music.

    Dave Matthews Band....I know they kinda get lumped in with Phish and the Dead bc of their huge following, but I know people each summer that go to not one but both shows when they come to Indy. Really? I liked a few of their songs but they've worn thin
    Adele. We get it, you've have a lot of bad relationships (great voice though)
    Bob Dylan. Again, great artist but I just can't get into his music.
    Red Hot Chili Peppers. Under The Bridge was great but the rest I just can't do.

    I still listen to Steely Dan and Talking Heads on a regular basis. Everything else I have is old, Steely Dan and Talking Heads still sound new and fresh to me.

    Those who claim rap isn't music are incapable of having discriminating tastes. It is no different than claiming race car drivers aren't athletes.

    Thank you. Much more reasonable comment.

    Interesting. I agree with more than a couple on your list but won't mention which ones. Had a good friend who once told me (and he was dead serious) that there is no real music besides The Who. I was absolutely fascinated that he could come to that conclusion. It has made me listen to The Who in a totally different way over the years since he said. I still don't agree with him, but I do find some great sounds in their cannon.

    You are correct.
    It IS music.
    Just really really bad sonic septic tank music.
    But it is music, by strict definition.

    And race car drivers are athletes.
    Which one won the Superstars competition one year?

    Talking Heads
    Dead Kennedys
    Sex Pistols
    Beastie Boys
    David Bowie (I like 20 or so of his songs but considering his catalogue is in the multiple hundreds...)
    Prince (see David Bowie)


    But most of the music I like is kinda sort 'prog-ish' so there's a good faction of people that don't care for the music I like either (actually, I find that most of them don't mind the music, its just that they don't have the patience to sit and enjoy a 12 minute long song). which in itself is ironic because the older i get, the more willing i am to listen to long, drawn out music but am if there's a movie my wife wants to watch that is longer than an hour and a half - FORGET IT! - I don't have that kinda time....

    This is a Hot Take that I can respect. Even though I disagree with the opinion. Thank you.

    No, blockhead. Jody.

    Other interests

    In 1981, Scheckter won the World Superstars competition in Key Biscayne, Florida. He defeated athletes such as Russ Francis, Renaldo Nehemiah, Peter Mueller, Rick Barry, Gaétan Boucher and Andy Ripley. In 1983 he was inducted into the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame.

    After Scheckter's retirement, he founded FATS Inc, a company which built firearms training simulators for military, law enforcement and security organisations. The sale of the company provided funds to allow Scheckter to help the racing careers of his sons Tomas and Toby. Tomas raced in the Indy Racing League where he won two races. Scheckter's brother, Ian, also raced in F1 for a few years.

    In 2004 Scheckter was reunited with his championship-winning Ferrari at the South African two-seater F1x2 Charity Grand Prix at Kyalami in South Africa.

    Call me crazy but I generally believe music should have melody to qualify as music.

    Melody + Harmony + Rhythm = music

    Fair enough, he does have an unusual style. I suppose its not for everyone. That said, he's got an amazing range. Beyond that their lyrics are really amazing, particularly their 70s stuff, and to a lesser extent their early 80s more commercial material.
