I love all music genres, just hate generic or (common) music. This is why I love the complexity and ordered chaos like Life on Mars

I think everyone has their own set of criteria for determining the quality of music. I've only just been dipping into every possible genre I can think of. I'm really appreciating metal but I think for me, the most awesome songs have a careful balance between clean vocals, clean instrumentals and screamo with deep complexities throughout the track.

Here is an example of a couple of songs on my playlists with that careful balance.

Damn Biato comes up with some quality interviews.

In the Room with Nirvana and Soundgarden: The Krist Novoselic, Kim Thayil and Jack Endino Interview​



I really have a romantic view of organic music scenes. NY punk, Laurel Canyon, Chicago blues, etc. My favorite is London R&B from early 60s. Anyway the Seattle grunge scene: I just missed it as I moved abroad in 90. But I remember hearing about the bands that became grunge on the underage punk scene in the PacNW. I might have heard Soundgarden or Mudhoney at a music fest, but I wasn't into that thrashy punk. I would have preferred the more RnR type like the Ramones or Pistols. At that time I was into live blues at the clubs. Their scene was younger guys. The ironic thing was at the time I played a lot of open tuning guitar and harder versions of Stones like songs. I should have started a band. :grinv1:
It's fun to listen to these guys reminisce. That's the best things about a scene, the shared experiences.

Guys being influenced by other guys is easy to understand, but where does completely new playing and genres come from?

That's what amazes me

I was in a band from 16 to 21 and we evolved and changed a hell of a lot.

Makes me feel kinda bad, we didn't go further just to see what new stuff we could have come up with

It's a bit of a crapshoot; new, unique ideas come for an individual all the time(if they stay solo) but then get watered down or swallowed in a group, or a group mix of disparate ideas or styles mix to form something new.
