You get your wife back; your house back; your truck back; your Model T's back; your dog back; Your job back: and the list goes on and on.
What do you get when you play a heavy metal record backwards?
Go to church, hug your kids, get a hair cut.
I don't know, Daniel. I'm into heavy metal, but only if its Ford script. Oh, heavy metal music; I've got as much use for it as rap music.
I can't think of one style of music I don't like at least a little of. Even country and rap.
I have no use for Bass only you know the car that drives down the road 250 ft from your house and drowns out your T.V. with boom,boom, boom! and sends the dogs to the fence to bark at the cars!
Modern country is just bad rock bands singing about trucks.
Silly boys -
Don't you know that trucks are for Girls
and old farts to haul their trailers with Model Ts on them?
The only heavy metal music I like is the sound of foreign car and truck steel and iron being crushed in a grinder at the scrap yard. that's music to my ears.
I like to watch my wedding video backwards.Get to see me walk back out of the church a free man.
What's wrong with foreign cars?
Check the definition of music--Rap isn't music!!
What do you get when you play and early Elvis song backwards?? The Shakes!!
HE he he!!
Peter, Nothing wrong with foreign cars if you like the companies that made them and their stock owners (mostly foreign) taking income that could be supporting American companies and staying here to bolster the US stock market and economy. I've even owned a few foreign vehicles through the years. I regret that I had to buy them but sometimes circumstances dictate your choices.
I quit listening to popular music when Elvis and the Beatles became popular!
But is a Foreign car considered bad IF it was from a wreck of a foreign car that Henry Ford discovered Vanadium Steel?
I like both kinds of music!
I'm a rocker. Not so much Heavy Metal, but "Classic" Rock. As a matter of fact, "A Horse With No Name" has got to be the epitome of "Classic" Sorry Steve. Couldn't resist! In all seriousness, The Who would have to be my favorite. I can listen to Country, but prefer Bluegrass to Country when I'm not in a Rock mood. I'm not gonna listen to Rap.....Period!
Im a rocker also. I like a lot of different types, I like Blues, Classic Rock, Bluegrass, Folk, Old Country and Western, some modern Country, Heavy Metal, Christian Rock and Gospel and even some Acid Rock.... (no rap, but I do not condemn it if the lyrics are not anti-social) But in my years of listening and playing music there is one thing that stands out to me. It is how intolerant of other types of music Country and Bluegrass listeners are. They have there likes and think anything else is no good. I am not saying all country listeners are that way but a large portion are. Time for the disclaimer: This is my opinion and Im sticking to it
I'm really into Medieval Music Right up to the start of the Renaissance about 1400. My favorite period is defiantly the Spanish Inquisition. A lot of Haunting Tunes came out of that era. I have dozens of Eight Track Tapes that I enjoy listing to daily. I also hav...... Oh Look, A Bunny!!
Aside from opera and rap, I like most anything that's played well and doesn't have trite lyrics (that omits a lot right there).
I hate rap and Gregorian Chant
Donnie, being a Bluegrass and Country musician I agree with you. I also find a lot of people who are into Rock are intolerant of this music as well. Just can't please everyone! Hard not to find something good in any genre. Chris.
And if you haven't heard Stan Howe sing and hear the music he has written, himself; you are really missing a treat.
Mark Stewart, I laughed, and laughed and ---!
Once again, I find model T people to be better than most of the rest of the people in the world. Many of you (us/we) have very eclectic tastes in music. My favorite country singer/songwriter (other than Stan H) is Jimmie Rodgers (the one who died about 1931). I have the CD collectors edition of nearly all his recordings as well as several original 78s. Most are dubbed onto cassettes which I play many hundreds of times (literally, no exaggeration)(can you say cowboy yodeler?). I like a wide range of classical, opera, Stephan Foster, '20s pop, '50s rock, '60s soft rock, even the Beatles (although I refused to listen to them until about 1990 because I don't like things that are overly hyped). I have CDs loaded with Scottish and Irish bagpipes (and other traditional music). Gotta add brass (Souza and others), traditional African, and even Gregorian chants.
Music, like model Ts, connect us to our history.
Drive carefully, and enjoy the music! W2
Yoicks Wayne, you've got such wide tastes, ya got no taste!!
Now, walk this way please. . . .
(If I could walk that way, I wouldn't be driving a model T!)
Delta blues! Bluegrass and a couple older 80's hair bands.
My favorite performers are:
Charlie Patton, Tommy Johnson, KC Bill Weldon, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Son House, Memphis Minnie, Canned Heat, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jonny Lang...
Alison Krauss and Union Station The Leadbetters, The Dillard's, Flatt and Scruggs, Bill Monroe, Marty Stuart, The Stanley Brothers...
Def Leopard, Joan Jett, Sammy Hagar, ZZ Top, Twisted Sister...
best blues program on tonight. kxci, tucson az. starts at 5:00 az time, 7 here in the swamp. stream it, you'll like it!
How could anyone hate Gregorian chant?? (grin)
My tastes are so wide spread, I could write several paragraphs about it. Aside from being exposed to so many different forms of music growing up, basically I just get bored if I listen to one genre too long.
I was a metal head for many years. Still love the stuff but these days, bluegrass and blues get most of my attention and just recently I was turned on to the Louisiana creole sound. Most notably Amédé Ardoin. In his short, tragic life, this young man produced some historically interesting music.
There's no way anyone can listen to that and not be taken back to the 1920s.
For the music history buff, this is a good read.
Thank you, Terry! The new CD is finally all mixed, mastered and waiting for me to approve the art work and copy, then it will take a few weeks for the final product to be out. I'm hoping to have a CD release party in Texas (San Antonio, where I recorded this one with Bobby Flores and the old Ray Price band) this fall, hope you can come. We'll be having a couple release parties in Montana and Idaho this late summer or fall. Also booking some concert dates for later in the year. Working up a new expanded band with twin fiddles and a horn or two -- hopefully be ready for next summer's festival season in the north.
I'm already getting some Internet radio airplay, hope to expand that and standard radio, too.
I like a lot of different kinds of music but I find every genre has music snobs. I can pretty much find something I like in every thing from Classical to Bluegrass, love old time fiddle, Honky Tonk Country and Western Swing, lots of Folk, Cowboy, Western and some blue, some jazz, Chamber ensemble, Violin solos, Polka (like the Great George House Polka Band!! Yeah George) Rockabilly, Beach/Cruise etc., etc. But what I find the most is that most people only like one little narrow thing and won't even try to like anything else. It's a shame, think what they are missing. And Chris -- your CD is great, I'm still playing it after all these years.
Just taped my radio show Thursday night, beginning 19 years on Montana Public Radio.
Next radio show: Tuesday, July 1, 2:06 PM Mtn Time, www.mtpr.org -- click listen live.
Stan - I forgot that you were in a band. It seems I recall a link to a vid quite some time past. If that's correct, would you mind posting it again?
Same for anyone else.
I play a harmonica (blues). (What's that old joke? There are musicians and then there are harmonica players. I fall into the latter...grin)
Danial, I enjoyed the link. Stan, I would love to hear your CD. Send me a PM if you have any for sale. I come from a long line of musicians. Everyone in our family (aunts, uncles, cousins, parents, kids, grandparents) plays something or sings. We would always get together at least 3 or 4 times a year for a family gathering. (notice I did not say reunion) There could be as many as 200 people there. It looked like a music store of instruments. The old folks played old grand old opry type of music,(carter family, Hank Williams, old fiddle tunes, traditional gospel tunes ect.)That is the music almost all of us learned to play. The next generation was Country and western.(Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Conway Twitty, ect) then my generation, (Blue Oyster Cult, Foghat, BTO, Lynerd Skynerd, ect) Then the younger generation and their stuff (smashing pumpkins, snakehead, twisted sister, ect). We just had the gathering about a month ago. We may play a old traditional song, followed by a Black Sabbeth song, followed by a Peter Paul and Mary Song. ?? As far as our group goes almost everyone will play anything. With the exception of the few remaining "Elders" who only play the "old Stuff" Its all they had back then. but they will sit and listen to it all. I think music is a great thing and should be more important in the schools. I feel like it is the "glue" that holds our family together. At the last gathering there was a young 3rd cousin (same age as my grandkids) who had never picked up a fiddle in his life. He played the guitar pretty good, but no fiddle. There is always any type of instrument laying out on the stage for anyone to use. By the end of the first day he was playing reconizable fiddle tunes. He was given his choice of at least 4 fiddles to take home and have as his own to learn on. I can not wait till this falls gathering and see how he has progressed. ...
Stan, Let me know when and where the Texas release party will be and I'll put it on my calendar. I wouldn't miss it for anything.
There must be 50,000 languages...and there's music. Anon.
Is there some place on the 'net where I can get a sample of Stan's music?
I've hunted a little for the last 10 years, I find information on him but have never found music.
