We've all been through a lot of musical changes in our lives...me from the 60's, though Hard Rock to Prog Rock, to Jam Bands and back again..

What one artist/band would comprise the biggest chunk of the soundtrack of your life, for me it is....

Neil Young.

So far it has been pop of the late 90s to the modern rock scene (Foo Fighters, Linkin Park, Creed, Everclear, Collective Soul etc.) to classic rock (the radio stuff) to blues and jazz to getting into the ABB, Dead, Dylan, Band ( I guess classics that dont get much radio love) to Derek and Govt Mule to Jambands and now its a mixture of it all except late 90s pop

I became a big Stones fan in college in the late 1980s, living with a few serious Stones heads who got me to think about the hundreds of Stones tunes that classic rock radio had not killed. At around that time, I started playing guitar, and then drums, and the Stones were the band whose music I have played the most, so they have been the most influential on my own music-making.

It's funny because I would not put them on the list of bands I would be most eager to see; I'd certainly rather see the ABB. I've seen the Stones 6 times from 1989 - 1999, and that is enough.

However, in terms of bands I have loved a LOT the longest, the Stones win.

Definitely the ABB. And what they didn't cover the Kings, Albert, BB & Freddie did.

This is tough because I'm trying to fully grasp what your asking. Without missing a beat the first band that came to my mind was Mountain. My favorite band hands down, when I don't know what to listen to at a particular moment that is usually my first choice because they never grow old for me. But the soundtrack of my life? After much thought it would have to be The Who.

I was thinking of The Who too - they were my first concert (their first final tour!) and my favorite band in high school and much of college, some very formative years of listening. I have listened to them much less over the past 10 years though.

No suprise to those that know me, but it is definately The Beatles.
Started there, went through arena rock, metal, thrash, jamband.. but the one constant since the moment I first heard them in 1975 ( I.was 8) has been boys from Liverpool.

The Almans are an obvious choice, but if I understand your question correctly, for me it would probably be New Orleans music.

Ever since I went to Tulane in the late 80s/early 90s, I have had a special place in my heart for the music of the Crescent City. There is something about the New Orleans sound that just hits me in my soul in a way that other music just doesn't. I'm sure some of that is because bands like The Meters and The Radiators were the soundtrack to my misspent youth

If you haven't heard Mardi Gras Indians like the Wild Tchouplitoulas or the Wild Magnolias, or the great New Orleans brass bands like Rebirth Brass Band and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, you are missing out on the best-kept secret in all of music, bar none.

At this point after the last 20 years I would say a toss up between the ABB and Gov't Mule.

Interesting thread! Back to the mid-60's, bored with the Beatles and Stones, I loved the'early' Yardbirds, T-Bones, Downliners Sect etc and then quickly discovered DYLAN. He took me back to ealy folk and blues, then electric blues. In the meantime its ABB and onwards to NOLA....Meters, Dr John, Nevilles, John Cleary, Cajun/Zydeco etc. Texas Country with Joe Ely, Jimmy Dale and Jimmy LaFave. Equally, the wonderful 'mountain' music of Doc Watson, early and progressive bluegrass......and always back to DYLAN.
It has to be Bob Dylan.

I have to agree with Chuck. The Beatles.

Became a big fan in '67. Through all the different musical phases of my life, rock, ABB, prog rock, whatever the '80s were, classical and back to ABB and blues, I could always listen to them no matter what era of their music. From Meet The Beatles to Let It Be.

What a great, fun thread!

Unless you're only about 10 years old, I can't see how a single band could make up "the soundtrack of your life".

I became aware of music very early. My dad was a huge Hank Williams fan and could play the G-chord as well as the spoons (how many of y'all even know about this?). Mom was a big band fan (Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller et al).

My brother (5 years older than me) was at the right age when the Beatles and Stones came along. Older sister was into the "girl groups" (Supremes, Shirelles, etc).

The Allman Brothers Band was the first music that I discovered on my on (grandpa lived across the street from Piedmont Park ...).

When I was in my 20's-30's, I took Warren Zevon's, "the Wild Age" as my personal anthem. They can play that one at my funeral!

first time I ever really paid attention to music it was the Beatles, for a while. Then, when I was around 14-15, I heard Eat a Peach and that was about it...

The Beatles. Until I heard Coltrane for the first time, so now both always seem to be playing in my life more than anything else.

Interesting thread.

1. My first exposure to music was disco (I still have some 45s from when I was a kid!).

2. In '84 Born in the USA came out and I have been a Springsteen junkie ever since.

3. In '91 my buddy took me to the Detroit Blues Fest. Among others, I saw Lonnie Brooks and Albert King. I got hooked on the blues.

4. In '93 I heard some new ABB music that hadn't been on the radio when Where it all Begins came out. I've seen them 70 times live so what does that tell you?

What I take from the discussion is not that I am picking any one thing in particular as a favorite but I find it cool that I like so many different genres.

The blues, because my life has been so hard... Kidding.

Miles Davis. Many other things have come and gone and I'll listen to just about anything, but Miles has always and will always be with me.

I guess I would say that my first consciousness of rock was when I was 7 in '64 and saw the Beatles the first time they appeared on the Ed Sullivan. I can't overstate how much that single show altered not just American, but the World's culture. It changed EVERYTHING.

Watching that show had a visceral effect on my brother and me - although we knew NOTHING about music (he was only 5) we were yelling, screaming and jumping up and down like monkeys. Nothing has ever hit me like that before or since. I can still remember it almost like it was yesterday - 47 years ago. It was absolutely one of the most vivid memories of my childhood.

It would be impossible for anyone who wasn't alive during that period of American history to fully appreciate how much the Beatles impacted the World. Nothing like that has ever happened before or since or ever will happen again.

They're not my favorite band, although I still like them a lot. But no one completely altered the landscape like they did. They were the right band in the right place at the right time.
