Richard probably not good enough to play the Metallica/Zeppelin stuff. Anyone that hates Bowie is just saying that for shock value and loses a s**t load of respect. My guess this is taken out of context somehow, either that or way too much cocaine

For me, The Smiths (but love Jonny Marr) Oasis, Stone Roses, Boy Bands, Ed Sheeran,

Love most rap, and Dexy's are great if you ignore the Too-Rye-Ay era, ..."For god sake Burn it Down"
Rod Stewart and Ron Wood look like somebody ordered the same rock star in two different colours.

Read the Pete Townshend six the other day, as Faaip says probably done for effect, his included, Zeppelin, The Beatles and THE WHO.

Mine are Oasis, anything Marc Almond, lots of bands I'm not keen on but they're the 2 as soon as something of theirs came on the radio, I'd turn it off.
There are non more easily offended, than those that want to be.

There is music I don't listen to, but I don't hate anything in particular. Its entertainment at the end of the day ,folks go over the top about it's meaning and bollocks, its about the dollars in the majority of cases.

Hope my lad gets into it with his guitar tuition, what a fabulous way to make a living

I lived opposite Kevin Rowland (Dexy's singer for those that don't know ) back in early 80's . I'd also seen him jump the queue at a Clash concert in '79 , much to the annoyance of the punk audience .A very arrogant person IMO , by then he had left his punk roots behind and forgotten ( Killjoys ). Funny thing is two bands I loathe on my list are Brummie bands and I am a native Brummie , now uprooted down south . Good call on Ed Sheeran , how I wished they killed his character on Game of Thrones .

Anyone that hates Prince, does not know anything about how to make music, when I say make music, create it, everyone can play music, but only a few can make it.........

Can't stand the Rolling Stones! 😂, disagree totally about the Stone Roses, you just have to 'get them' particularly during that period. Bowie and Prince two massive pioneers of their generation and beyond. I Couldn't stand most of the 80's New Romantic stuff and Glam Rock, and also the over-hyped American glam metal bands, such as Kiss, Motley Crue and the rest of that shite.

Give me Hendrix, Joy Div, Pixies, Floyd, Robert Johnson and the coolest band that ever existed - The Velvet Underground.

I like a pretty wide range of stuff, as they say from Abba - ZZTop. However, the one genre that I have never taken to at all is Jazz.........just don’t like it.

Others I’m not keen on would be the likes of the wailing PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Morissey types ((l’m with Hector on those)

I hate Led Zeppelin, too. The single most over-rated band of all time. Their entire catalog includes about an album and a half of excellent material, and the rest is dreck. Saw them live once and they were pathetic. Page was sloppy beyond belief. He made Jerry Garcia look like Yngwie Malmsteen.**

The Doors are another I can't abide, as are Journey, Rush, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, all of whom are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Loverboy holds a special place among bands I can't stand, not because they were ever important enough to deserve anyone's scorn, but because I was forced to sit through one of their performances when they opened for the Who. An hour of my life I will never get back.

** One night at the restaurant I used to manage I saw Yngwie Malmsteen's tour bus pull in about half an hour before closing. Someone - his manager, I guess - got off, ran in, and asked if we could accommodate fifteen or sixteen people. I said of course we could and he replied, "Great! Because the greatest guitarist in the world is on that bus!"

So I said, "Really? Richard Thompson is coming in?"

Yngwie is amazing, by the way, and both he and his group were incredibly nice. He signed a menu for us which was framed and mounted in a prominent place.

I guess we all have different tastes in music, that what makes it so unique, but to say you hate a particular band is just wrong, my ex said she hated Prince, but loved Sinaed O'Connor and The Bangles...erm both got no 1 with Prince songs

No I think it's fine to use the word dislike or hate, dislike would be a better word. I worked with a guy who'd throw the radio out the window if Michael Jackson came on if you couldn't get there first. I was late on one occasion and he forgot we were 5 floors up...

But you’re right with Wyatt and AatJ’s :)
