Parental transport legacy, Dad had all three and then some. Could'a actually bought the farm with that lot now. (pictures stolen from elsewhere)

He had another pickup farm truck fitted with dual dirt digger tyres, had very little exhaust. Sometimes he'd drive it in fury attacking a mucky clay track. My brothers slightly terrified but me loving it.

My dad was a Landrover man, before they went all floofy for the Chelsea set. Defenders mostly.

Saw Rob Zombie at Donington. Playing that album with More Human than Human. Became my gym album for a while.

Thinking of my own upbringing, my Dad's favourite was Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald; two artists I love to this day. In my parents record collection I discovered the Kingston Trio and Peter, Paul and Mary; both acoustic guitar bands. The sound of the guitar left me utterly entranced and the pathway to my first Martin D28 was clear and inevitable.

What effect has the older generation had on you?
I like this!

My folks loved Louis and Ella too. And Louis Prima!

The kids of good friends of mum and dad introduced me to Harry Nilsson. Cousins got me into Slade.

That background brought me great pleasure fucking with the heads of people who thought "Just a Gigolo" was written by David Lee Roth, "Cum On Feel The Noise" was a Quiet Riot song and Celine Fuken Dions "Without You" was anything more than an overwrought yet shittily insipid cover of the epic Nilsson version (not to mention it was actually written by Pete Ham of Badfinger!)

Special mention must go to Mum and Dad loving Peter Sellers and Sophia Loren which meant we had the bizarre album "Peter and Sophia" which had classic peculiarities like "Goodness Gracious Me" and "Zoo Be Zoo Be Zoo".

I'm still disappointed you didn't come and say hello, especially as I stood out. I was the one with the long hair and black heavy metal t-shirt.
The older I get, the more disappointed in myself I become.

I got the Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits album for my 5th birthday in 1985, and listened to Dad's The 60's Collection cassette set more than he did around the late 80's - and my radio station of choice, is The Sound. That kinda says it all.

Edit: Still got 'em

My maternal Grandfather was a Saxophonist in an old style swing big band

My Father worked for EMI and also had his own music (retail, vinyl) shop

I don’t remember not knowing Kind of Blue, Young Americans and London Calling

Mums music was more Americana / Folk then Celtic and the 70’s English stuff like Steeleye Span etc.

My experience with music isn’t acknowledged without my Family listening habits

Louis Prima is awesome, I still hit him up on youtube. The magic between him and Keely is always great :)



By far the best version, sorry diamond dave ;)
