Needless to say I didn't vote at all because there is no spot for all genres
I mainly love the early stuff which range from Zep, Purple, Who, Hendrix, Cream, CS&N, Ten years After, Kinks, Beatles etc then moving with the times through to Pink Floyd, Yes, Rush, Queen, Lizzy, Maiden, Radiohead, Steriophonics & Queens of the Stone Age and many many more.
But also love Irish Trad, Blues(Rory Gallagher, John Primer, John Lee hooker), Classical, Swing(Frank, Dino et al) Contemporary pop (snow patrol etc), Ambient Electronica and even Easy listening what ever that means
Coltrane, Miles, Fela Kuti, Sun Ra, John Zorn, Franco, Velvet Underground (with John Cale!), Anthony Braxton, This Heat, Eno, etc.
I could go on for an hour. Whisky and music....
Dem call it BLEGGAE...If yuh wanna know what it sound like when Bob Marley jam with Jimi, then check I version of "Wind Cries Mary..."
A friend gave I, at me las' birthday, a bottle of SMWS malt, which dem call "A Rasta malt"! Serious! The offishal Society blurb claim dem call it dat becar' the taster sniff ganja on the nose!
Bloodfire! Me only get sherry and oak, and a lot of it! The only ganja I nosin' is mi spliff! But lemme tell you, dis dram was well wicked! the "boom"! Me discover it a 37 year old Longmorn...speyside business.
Me have a TINY drop still, but me savin' it fe me rasta bredda. Him late as usual...if he no show soon, it all gone, and 'im haff fe deal wit Ardbeg instead!
The Blues is a healer, and reggae lift the blues, and when John Lee Hooker sing 'bout "One Scotch, One Bourbon and one Beer", mi say: gimme just "one scotch, one scotch and one scotch..."
Beatles not bad...nor Beat-Oven.
and it all sound better with a good malt!
Interesting that Baltimore's major single malt bar, Birds of a Feather, always has the local classical radio station playing in the background. As I joke to one my fellow musician/malt lovers: that's one way to keep the riff-raff out!
But when enjoying a good single malt, I don't want anything that is too distracting for music, ususally classical or jazz, nothing with vocals. LP's are also good, aside from sounding richer than digital, one side of a record is just about the right amount of time that I'd spend with a glass anyway.
