A lot of people like to give me compliments that I like to listen to all sorts of music. People are usually impressed with that. Each time I buy some new albums or make a list of my favorite music, someone will usually reply complimenting me on my varied taste. Well, even though my main genres of music is mostly rock and metal… I still listen to a bit of everything including rap and pop music. I try to listen to a bit of everything. A lot lately, I’ve gotten into jazz and blues. I’m also into a lot of prog rock which is my favorite and of course, metal is my favorite too. I know a lot of people are not into rap and pop music but if you look at my music collection, you would see some of that stuff.
I find it’s important to listen to all kinds of music. I’ve got to listen to all kinds ’cause it helps with my songwriting inspiration. Plus, I’ll get bored with listening to one kind of music. It bothers me that people listen to one genre. Once again, I listen to a bit of everything. I would like to listen to more classical music and opera at some point. I’ve just been listening to a lot of jazz music lately. Jazz music is awesome.
As far as me listening to pop music goes, I wish people would stop shaming pop music so much ’cause not all of it is bad. Some pop music out there is really good stuff. I’m a fan of Rihanna and not ashamed of it. I like Taylor Swift. I like Janet Jackson. I just started listening to Maroon 5 a lot now and I think they’re really good. As for rap music, you’ll see me listening to NWA or Dr. Dre or something like that. I would like to get into rap music more and am trying ’cause it’s good stuff.
I just like good music, ya know? As long as the music is good, who cares what genre it is? I’ll be a fan of any artist or band as long as I like the music. If the music attracts me then I’ll support it. Simple as that. Music is music to me and that’s all there is to it!
