Christmas music is a dark, dark place for me. Im like a fatty scoffing cheeseburgers and crying afterwards. I know its wrong but I still do it.

I draw the absolute f***ing line at Cliff Richard's Christmas atrocities though. That c*** is one of the worst musical criminals of all time

Rap is a genre I dont have much interest in but I dont dismiss it out of hand. Some of those guys are very talented writers


In the spirit of the seasonal tidings ............

What's everyones favourite Xmas song?

Without putting too much thought into it I'd propbably say The Pogues - Fairy tale of Newyork.

George Michaels - Last Christmas .......... although a big slice of 80's cheese, def gets you feeling nostalgic as I've probably heard it every Christmas of my life since I can remember.


I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day by Wizard

Absolute belter

Blues yes

I love 50`s rocknroll, Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, BB King etc. A lot of that crosses over into blues of course

Then theres the wonderful Credence Clearwater Revival who, to me, are more blues influenced than anything else

Im a huge fan of the present day JD McPherson, who is heavily influenced by rockabilly, blues and early rocknroll

And finally in the UK we have a subgenre of blues rock known as pub rock, which was big in the 70s and 80s.

Top of that particular tree are the legendary Dr Feelgood, with their amazing guitarist Wilko Johnson. Wilko, faced with a terminal cancer diagnosis, decided to carry on playing gigs until he died. His surgeon phoned him up a few years later to ask why he was still alive..... long story short, he is still alive and beat the cancer.

Nice! I've been really digging Blues/Funk/Rock stuff lately. St. Paul and the broken bones, Monophonics, Dan & Drum.

We have a local guy here in St. Louis that made a lot of noise in the Blues industry. He's young (I think 26 now), but has an old Blues sound/soul. His name is Marquis Knox. I've seen him about 20 times now. I know he did some tours over in Europe this past year. He's one of my favs right now, yes I'm a little bias cause he's from my city, but still good.

Def Leppard Adrenalize is one of my fav albums. Thin Lizzy greatest hits is good to have on in the car.

If its dance then it has to be this one:

Back on Xmas songs, there have been some fabulous songs over the years:
Like DG, Wham was a cracker and the George M’s December Song a fave too. Loved Kate Bush, December will be magic again, Nat King Cole, Even Annie Lennox’s version of Winter Wonderland.....I could go on! :)

I'm almost positive she was raped and it will be confirmed after they examine her body.

Failing that it could be human trafficking, both the suspects have lengthy criminal histories, wouldn't be surprised if they're involved with a trafficking ring.

The OurVinyl Sessions version in particular is very fine indeed. I feel "Precious" represents what his voice sounds like when it's at its most spontaneous.

What sets him apart from many other artists is that JD is a multidimensional revivalist. His versatile, rich voice and skilled band successfully revive soul, rockabilly, blues, psychedelic rock, heck, occasionally even ska and reggae.

The one critic I would have of JD is that a lot of the spotlight goes to himself (band name, album covers), when Jimmy, Doug, Ray and Jason each make pertinent contributions.
