well, i was right about one thing. people who have a favorite band tend to share a collective taste. for those of you who dont want to surf through comments, i got a lot of the beatles and david bowie, quite a bit of REM and queen, and also a great many saying weezer and the police. a lot of classic, traditional stuff but also a big emphasis on up and coming promises to success. learned a lot about coldplay, as quite a few are fans, and i see the solid roots where u2 fans could make that leap. was impressed to see howie day and tori amos to show up, and the eurthymics. a lot of others were mentioned as well, some of which i have never heard but plan on downloading. as for me....

i am a huge stevie nicks fan. fleetwood mac is right up there with divinity.... i also told a lot of you where i agreed, especially those of you who brought REM into the discussion. i love tom petty, bruce hornsby, and i even like vanessa carlton. (i am a first year college student, and you will not hear me ranting about the non-talented prospects of brittany and christina... justin and nick... no no no) dashboard, old dave matthews, guster, elton john... i even have a fair amount of respect for eminem. no, really.

its been most wonderful getting to know some of you from the community more. i have been hoping to expand my friends list and extend my musical horizons, and i got to do both in one shot :D

Who's the Hornsby fan??

That guy is a genuis.

To quote the great man himself "What the hell try anything once!"

I love Stevie Nicks. I saw her live a few months ago at a benefit concert and Tom Petty showed up on stage. They sang Stop dragging my heart around. My favorite album from her will always be Bella Donna.

I'm jealous! I still have yet to see Stevie live. But Fleetwood Mac is my second favorite band.

Fleetwood Mac was my first obsession- before The Beatles, before REM and before U2. I loved Lindsey Buckingham- heehee. Then Michael Stipe became my songbird (I LOVE his angelic voice!), then Bono became my..... love. heh ;-)

I also agree with simu2fan (hi Simone! ;) ), I love Springsteen (he was my first concert!!), and U2 is just AWESOME live!!!!! :)

And I also admire Eminem.. I think he's a great songwriter... I don't agree with everything he does, but I like *SOME* of the ideas in his songs... "The way I am" for example- NOT "Kim"!

Man, I commented to the original entry before seeing any of the comments. I thought I'd just list my *one* second-favourite artist, rather than spew a long list, heh. Now that I see I wouldn't have been the only one to do that, let me expound, because I do so love going on about music I love. ;)

Elvis Costello (as I mentioned before), Brian Eno, Interpol, Joy Division, New Order, Daniel Lanois, Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Genesis (with and without Peter Gabriel), Sinèad O'Connor, Björk, Dead Can Dance, ABC, Depeche Mode, Yaz, Information Society, INXS... yeah, I'm an '80s kid, in case you can't tell. And yes, I got into Eno and Lanois because of U2. :)

Leather and Lace is one of my favourite songs of all time. Stevie Nicks is fantastic.
