Weigh In - Musical Montage

Ahhh, music...

...in any culture, any time period, anywhere in the world, people love it. From tribal drums to synthesizer, big band to hip-hop, country ballads to heavy metal, everybody loves some type of music. But very few people love everything, and some people are very particular about not only the kind of music they like, but who plays it…and when…and where. We’re not interested in the “top 40” hits here, but in what endures; what people have in their mind when they think of music. To borrow from a previous “Weigh-In” question, it might be the one piece of music they’d choose if they were stuck on a deserted island. LICN interviewed a number of our readers to find out who they’d pick, and why.

 





 



“Ludwig Van Beethoven. I love his music…but not all of his stuff. The odd numbered symphonies by Herbert von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic, with the exception of the C-Minor symphony — that’s his Fifth Symphony, first movement — I want that by Leonard Bernstein only.”


—Eddie Walker

 
“My favorite musical artist is Led Zeppelin …I just like the guitar playing and the drumming’s amazing and the singing is unique. I appreciate it a lot and I enjoy it when I listen to it.”


—Lucas Dalakian


 
“Guns and Roses…I really like their guitar work, by Slash.”


—Matt Natale


 “My favorite group is Sigur Ros, from Iceland…very original; they have good texture with the melody. New Age.”


—Tommy Bartell



 

“ Atreyu… they’re hard-core.”

—Jeanne Hodnovich
 
“My favorite musical artist is the Rascal Flats because they have a song about almost any topic in the world.”


—Sonia Buchereau


 
“I’d have to go with Judas Priest. I just like the way that they change with the times; they go from classic ‘70’s metal all the way to the current 2006 thrash metal.”


—Chris Grajewski


 
“My favorite artist is Elton John. I saw him in 1971 in San Diego, again in 1987, and in ’97 in Madison Square Garden. I grew up in the ‘flower child’ era in the ‘60’s and ‘70’s, so he was right up my alley.”


—Bill Potts

 


“My favorite musical artist is Stars… They’re so unique, different from any other music I’ve heard. Calm, but upbeat.”


—Evan Brandeis

 
“The Eagles; because ‘Hotel California’ is the lifetime, all-time most awesome song ever made.”


—Glen Dalakian







“Django Reinhart…a gypsy from France, born in 1910, he was probably the greatest guitar player that ever lived…he played with Duke Ellington’s band, he played with everybody … you heard him in the first cartoons when you were growing up.”


—Michael Newman

 
“My favorite musical artist is without doubt B. B. King, who I’ve had the pleasure of meeting on several occasions and who seems to be an upstanding human being. I find no other musician as hospitable as B. B. King.”


—Charlie Cox

“Whitney Houston…I think she’s a beautiful lady and her music is just wonderful, beautiful… very soulful.”


—Sharon Walker


 
“Say Anything… I love the lyrics…I think they’re just amazing. It just resounds really amazing in my head.”


—Justin Stander


 
“The Allman Brothers Band…the musicianship is just absolutely incredibly top-notch; has been for years…a lot of fun to listen to.”


—Jack Sharkey

“Bruce Springsteen. I love Bruce…he’s a Jersey guy and he’s for the working class people.”


—Lisa Herrmann







“Neil Diamond…I have every one of his albums. I just love all of his music, and he’s a good old Brooklyn boy; what more can you ask for?!”


—Diane Valenti







“The Allman Brothers. I really like their classical rock style of music.”


—Kevin Kleiman







“The Jam…they’re just amusing…a Brit pop punk band. Eton Rifles is their rugby chant.”


—Paul McGarry







“You cannot pick one, but if I had to, Jimi Hendrix, [especially] ‘Little Wing.’”


—Mark Squicciarini







“What’s in my CD player right now: Newfound Glory. I think it’s a great CD.”


—Chris Stacey

“AFI…the lead singer is hot. I love the fact that you can’t tell if he’s gay or bisexual or straight.”


—Jillian Rios





“The Buggles; their ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’ was the first video played on MTV.”


—Peter Elliott






“The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band…I wish I could see them in concert. They’re country music, kind of peppy.”


—Rich Osovitz






“U2…great music, good lyrics, great guitar work, great drumming, got a great sound.”


—Brian Katz

“Anything by Alice in Chains or G and R. These bands ROCK!!”


—Allyson Simone
