    Temper Trap (best aussie band for the past few years)

    heavily influenced by U2 with their own distinctive style in their earlier days, doing more of their own thing now.

    Ellie Goulding is one of my favourite solo artists.

    I knew that they the taking a break. At least I hope it's just a break and that's all it amounts too. So anyways...beings it's just a break I'm still going with my favorite modern day band..lol. I'm not giving up hope that hopefully they'll be back & soon. I'm tired of all this radio play music these days and the Foo Fighters do their own thing.

    Can I say Led Zeppelin since they had a reunion show in 2007?

    puggybear stars may twinkle-but I shine!

    I'm gonna get flamed for this,but I can handle it:

    Two weeks ago I was in the studio with a team,recording backing for a tv advert.
    Someone mentioned 'Professor Green',I'd never heard of him.

    When I [and my guitars] got home,I checked on Youtube to see who he is.

    I actually found his style and ability quite impressive-especially 'Avalon'.

    The sad thing is I've played Rock/Metal/Blues plus been a session musician for over 50 years,and there I was,listening to this young rapper and being impressed.

    I've always said rap sucks,it isn't music,blah blah.

    Word-eating time for the Puggybear. . . . .

    Windhand's fist album is my go-to comfort music.
    Lord Vapour is very damn special too. Shades of Hendrix in singing style, and emphasis on guitar, in slow stoner rock form. Chill heavy.
