So hard to pick a lane, I love the usuals--Radiohead, Beatles, Pink Floyd, Yes, Medeski, Martin and Wood, and a ton of other bands--but I decided if I gotta absolutely pick one band to have nothing else to listen to on a desert island, it's Led Zeppelin.

After listing some of my least favorite stuff, it's pretty satisfying to name my faves. I wish I could narrow it down, but my favorite music depends on my mood. I LOVE good music, so it's tough sometimes.
1. The Beatles. The first music I remember hearing. 2. Pink Floyd. The first band I discovered on my own. 3. Yes. My love of prog begins to rear it's ugly head. 4. Rush. Yes, led to Rush, which lead to... 5. ELP. And there we go.. 6. Neil Young. One of my favorite songwriters. 7. Miles Davis. THE jazz master. 8. Opeth. I do listen to some modern music. 9. Grateful Dead. I know some don't like the noodling guitar, but Jerry Garcia wrote some great songs. 10. Deep Purple. My favorite 70's non-prog band.

Since I've got a few minutes to kill at work, I guess I can add a few more of my faves to the list.
11. Genesis. If they're a 5 or 4 piece, they're awesome. When they turn into a 3 piece, they lose me. 12. Slayer. By far, the best metal band of the last 30 years. Sorry Metallica. 13. Black Sabbath. The best metal band of the 25 years before that. 14. The Flaming Lips. So weird, so good. 15. Jethro Tull. I love 'em so much, I think they deserved the Grammy they got that was supposed to go to Metallica.

16. Can. Krautrock at it's finest. 17. Camel. The most underrated prog band. 18. New Order. The only synth-pop band I can stomach. Actually, they were always more a rock band, anyway. 19. Big Star. Forget the Velvet Underground, this is the best not appriciated during their time band. 20. Primus. Les Claypool is one of the great bass players.
