I’ve always believed that one’s musical tastes should be true to one’s self and not what’s “cool” or to fit in. I should add that I also like lots of other stuff that doesn’t belong to those genres. It’s why I go down The Red Lion most Fridays as they have all sorts of live singers on down there doing different stuff. I started doing one of those “ten albums in ten
