I used to listen to hip-hop and whatever was on the charts until I heard a song that completely amazed me. The song was Knockin' On Heaven's Door by
Guns N Roses. My dad was listening to it and I immediatly froze up and in that very moment my taste for music changed drastically, within a month I
started playing guitar, I was discovering a whole new side of music and developed a deep admiration and respect for musicians. This was 6 years ago
and even today, I am discovering new music (which ironically is old music), I still play the guitar along with the piano, harmonica and a few other
instruments that I am dabbling in. And every single time the song Knockin' On Heaven's Door starts up, I feel the same way I felt the first time I
The downside is I can't listen to pop anymore. At all. I find it absolutely repetive and non-sensical. Yet some of my favorite songs range from metal
to classical, including rock, blues, and punk.
My favorite artists include Guns N Roses, Pink Floyd, Bruce Springsteen, ACDC, Bob Dylan, Aerosmith, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry,
Mozart, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Dio, Boston, Eric Clapton, The Doors, Chris DeBurgh, David Bowie, CCR, Cinderella, Donovan, Deep Purple, Def
Leppard, Eagles, Queen, Dream Theatre, Elton John, Led Zeppelin, Heart, Jackson Browne, Iron Maiden, Meatloaf, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker, Johnny Cash,
Judas Priest, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Steelheart, Motley Crue, Poison, Bon Jovi, Dire Straits, Journey, Neil Young, Pter Frampton, Kiss, Oasis, Scorpions,
Skid Row, The Ramones, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Van Halen, Tom Petty, Pantera, The Who, Tracy Chapman, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, etc etc etc I could go
on and on. I am somewhat leaniant towards classic rock, but I am proud to say I have a very wide range of music that grows with every waking hour
which all started from a single song that I overheard almost 6 years ago.
Music has now become my obsession, an escape which brings me peace of mind. So I was wondering if anybody else has ever had this kind of musical
epiphany? Where one song introduced you to a whole new world of music.
