Virtual battle of the bands
Who are your favorite artists/bands, and why? Here's mine:
1. Prince, because his originality, musicality, and technical proficiency has
never been matched elsewhere. His fusion of technical guitar playing with a
wonderful singing voice, plus prodigious creative output in writing all his own
songs, is a unicorn in the music world.
2. Metallica from 1981-1991, because their work up to and including the Black
Album was their finest work. I don't care about anything after 1991 from them.
3. Taylor Swift, because her songs are so catchy and she writes and performs
everything so well.

My taste is super varied in general, but these are the first that come to mind
as consistently able to be played anytime in no particular order:
Radiohead - a nostalgia pick that I keep coming back to - when I started
listening to them, I related to a lot of the themes of their music
(alienation/societal pressure/existential angst)
Stevie Ray Vaughan - greatest blues guitarist of all time in my opinion
Carpenters - another nostalgia pick, musically soothing to me - big fan of
Donna Summer - my iconic disco diva - shouldn't need to elaborate
