My only sibling was nearly eleven years older than I, and my parents were fairly advanced in age to have children my age. As a result, I grew up listening to a TON of music older than I.
I absolutely love the Eagles, the Beatles, the Rolling Stone, the J. Geils Band, James Taylor, Dan Fogelberg, Carole King, and a ton of classic and southern rock.
From my own era, I'm a huge fan of Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains. Later, Audioslave, and solo Chris Cornell.
I LOVE old jazz standards - Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole.
Anything by Cole Porter...
And, I am from Detroit, and love everything Motown ever put its name to. Most especially the Temptations, the Supremes, Marvin Gaye.
