I'm not stuck on one type of music genre just like I'm not stuck on one type of whisky, variety is what I like! (Classic) Rock, Death & Doom Metal, Gothic, Early Jazz, Blues, Ska, Classical and even Opera can be found in my collection and listening mix.

Needless to say I didn't vote at all because there is no spot for all genres

I mostly listen to rock and country but I'm not stuck on those two categories. I've been known to listen to other genres as well... even hip hop.

No-one's going to like this but:

R&B, hip hop and dance !! - so my vote went for pop.

Yeh I know I have the musical taste of a fifteen year old :)

Deffo a rocker here as 80% of my collection is good guitar Rock whether Classic, Progressive, Psychedelic, Hard, Heavy, Industrial, Grunge, Nu, Alternative and so on and on :lol: . However like others I too have a wide and varied taste.

I mainly love the early stuff which range from Zep, Purple, Who, Hendrix, Cream, CS&N, Ten years After, Kinks, Beatles etc then moving with the times through to Pink Floyd, Yes, Rush, Queen, Lizzy, Maiden, Radiohead, Steriophonics & Queens of the Stone Age and many many more.

But also love Irish Trad, Blues(Rory Gallagher, John Primer, John Lee hooker), Classical, Swing(Frank, Dino et al) Contemporary pop (snow patrol etc), Ambient Electronica and even Easy listening what ever that means :lol:

I don't listen to "heavy metal" or pop. Everything else goes.

I find it very hard to vote for a particular genre, but if I have to than it would be jazz. I always find it better to name some artists or groups I listen to:
Coltrane, Miles, Fela Kuti, Sun Ra, John Zorn, Franco, Velvet Underground (with John Cale!), Anthony Braxton, This Heat, Eno, etc.
I could go on for an hour. Whisky and music....

Yuh see mi name,suh? Well, dat de music me love, an' it earn I a livin' as a LIVE musician!

Dem call it BLEGGAE...If yuh wanna know what it sound like when Bob Marley jam with Jimi, then check I version of "Wind Cries Mary..."

A friend gave I, at me las' birthday, a bottle of SMWS malt, which dem call "A Rasta malt"! Serious! The offishal Society blurb claim dem call it dat becar' the taster sniff ganja on the nose!

Bloodfire! Me only get sherry and oak, and a lot of it! The only ganja I nosin' is mi spliff! But lemme tell you, dis dram was well wicked! the "boom"! Me discover it a 37 year old Longmorn...speyside business.

Me have a TINY drop still, but me savin' it fe me rasta bredda. Him late as usual...if he no show soon, it all gone, and 'im haff fe deal wit Ardbeg instead!

The Blues is a healer, and reggae lift the blues, and when John Lee Hooker sing 'bout "One Scotch, One Bourbon and one Beer", mi say: gimme just "one scotch, one scotch and one scotch..."


Beatles not bad...nor Beat-Oven.

and it all sound better with a good malt!

I really like turning on the classical station when I'm at home. Relaxing, soothing and plays perfectly in the background.

As a full-time classical musician, I was gratified to see the high percentage of forum members voting for classical music in this poll. Having said that, I am like many others posting on this thread that enjoy a wide variety of musical genres, including reggae, mon.
Interesting that Baltimore's major single malt bar, Birds of a Feather, always has the local classical radio station playing in the background. As I joke to one my fellow musician/malt lovers: that's one way to keep the riff-raff out!

I'm mostly into hardrock / metal. But not exclusively so, I enjoy a wide range of other genres as well, including the occasional classical recording.

I listen to all of the above though I voted for my most usual preference. With apologies to those who enjoy them, the only genres I don't find pleasing are country and rap.

I Listen to a lot of odd stuff: Early Funkadelic albums, Krautrock, Spaghetti Western soundtrack, 70's Brazilian music, Outlaw Country, Avant-garde Jazz, Afro-beat, Artsy Punk, Some old prog-rock, Ry Cooder, Beefheart, Iron Maiden, Fairport Convention, Howlin Wolf, and Jerry Lee Lewis just to name a few.

But when enjoying a good single malt, I don't want anything that is too distracting for music, ususally classical or jazz, nothing with vocals. LP's are also good, aside from sounding richer than digital, one side of a record is just about the right amount of time that I'd spend with a glass anyway.

None of the above!

Folk Music, be it English, Scottish, Irish, Bretton etc, early or modern.

Cheers, Paul

Rock but jazz was a close second. It really depends on my mood.

Has to be Jazz or the Blues. Contemplative music of some kind is best I feel. Certain classical pieces would be ideal too. Beethoven's symphonys maybe...

I listen to a lot of different things, but my heart lies with rock/hardrock. Listening to some Motorhead now, I think a good Ardbeg Ten would really work well now. :D
