I am musically all over the place. Known for my LOVE of all things Bon Jovi until he went country, it is possible that my music taste is suspect. I’m okay with this. I don’t love music to impress people… because everyone knows that if that was the case I would have to be into the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Neil Young & Jimi Hendrix. And quite simply… I am so not (except maybe for Neil Young’s Heart of Gold). The rest of them can be classified under whiny noise – FOR ME! Now maybe for you, they are classified under musical magical royalty.
This is where I find music so interesting. One same song can affect people in totally different ways. It is possibly the best and worst part of being a musician, perhaps.
Anyways, I wanted to preface this post with the caution of it’s possible that I know not of what I speak. I know what I like, but I get it… the Bon Jovi stain might make you flee for cover before taking musical advice from the likes of me and my ilk (new fave word, btw).
This is quite possibly THE most beautiful CD I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to. It was given to my mother by my mother-in-sin. It came with the story of my sweetie as a youngin’ having piano competitions with his little sister to this very pianist. If you are not impressed, you should be. If you are not going “awww…” at the thought of my sweetie as a youngin’, you should be. I have the pictures to prove it.
I’m not going to ruin it with words… just LISTEN TO IT
ps. Does this help explain the Bon Jovi thing?
