Toni from A Daily Dose of Toni, is hosting this 30 Days About Me challenge and today's topic is "Favorite Band/Artist". If you read Day 1's challenge, "My Favorite Song", you will already know that there is NO way I could name just one. I am a huge music lover and have so many favorites. And they sometimes change from day to day.
For the record, this post should have been up yesterday but I seem to be running behind. But I will be caught up today. Thanks for bearing with me!
So who is my favorite artist or band? I'm going to have to say that my all-time favorite band is…. Journey.
Journey was one of the first bands I remember really just going nuts over. I got to see them in concert in 1982 (yes, I'm old), and that sealed it for me. I was hooked. Steve Perry had the most beautiful voice with such range.
I know a lot of people are sick to death of Journey, I guess. The show Glee may have contributed to that. And the only thing I want to say about that is, at least Glee has made many of the songs/bands/artists of the 70s and 80s popular to a whole new generation. I know on turntable.fm a lot of people will lame Journey songs, and that in my opinion is just, well… lame.
Okay, here are a few more of my favorite groups/artists:
- Pink Floyd
- Robert Plant
- Billy Squier
- Bruno Mars
- Johnny Cash
- Jack Johnson
- John Mayer
- Stevie Nicks
- Fleetwood Mac
- Alisha Keyes
- Lauryn Hill
- Kings of Leon (Another one people seem to hate)
- Bruce Springsteen
- Green Day
- Bon Jovi
I could go on, and on, and on…
Is your favorite band or artist among one of mine? I'd love to hear it, so please let me know in the comments! And, Don't Stop Believing!
