Now, this is way back when, but when I was in junior high/high school, The Monkees were my biggest group. Then there was also The Beatles and The Dave Clark Five and Lovin' Spoonful and Paul Revere and the Raiders and Eric Burdon and the Animals, etc. etc. etc. But, then, after high school, it was a whole new music scene for me: Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, Uriah Heep, Blood Sweat & Tears, Chase, Yes, Chicago(originally Chicago Transit Authority), Emerson Lake & Palmer, Alice Cooper, Procol Harum (sp?)plus many more. I also liked Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young for the more mellow stuff.

I saw Chicago recently on CBS's early morning program. They still sound pretty good!

when i was a kid, my mom was into ABBA and The Carpenters, papa was more into Ace of Base and Air Supply, Engelbert, Kenny ROgers kind of music. i didn't really mind but it was their music. as a kid we watched a lot of musicals for kids (Annie, Sound of Music, Mary Poppins...) i think the first that really caught my atention was a local (i'm local in Manila) band that my uncle listened to. he was living at our house at that time he was in college and because of him i got to listen to Eraserheads, Rivermaya, Yano. until i got into the whole band thing and started choosing my own music to listen to.

I got a lot of it thrown at me all at once. My neighbor's Uncle came back from 'Nam in '71 or so, and it was on! Grand Funk Railroad, Mountain, The James Gang, Uriah Heep, Argent, Black Sabbath...the list just goes on and on. But what really grabbed me by the ear was the Alice Cooper album "Killer". It wasn't long before I was trying to find everything out by him (which wasn't much back then, only about 4 albums). Between Alice and Grand Funk, I thought I'd finally found Heaven.
