I grew up in the 70s, listening to many styles - Glam rock (Slade, Mud, The Sweet), Progressive (Pink Floyd, Yes, Genesis, 10cc), Classic Rock (Deep Purple, Thin Lizzy, Led Zep, Rush, AC/DC, Queen), Reggae/Pop...The Police, Bob Marley, Chic, Dire Straits...and more besides. Generally I listened to everything except jazz and country (which I learned to appreciate later)...
Not being a singer I listened to the musical textures and tried to learn the subtleties of what makes great music great to listen to. So I like the little musical and production details and sound effects that create interesting musical images.
I started playing bass as a teenager and moved on to lead guitar for most of my playing years, and later picked up playing keyboards at home just to support my home recording. I spent some years playing the pub rock circuit playing rock covers.
