Enjoy these Styles and musical qualities:
Other styles/genres/qualities of music that I like not listed above:
Favorite or well-respected bands/artists
Miles Davis, Grateful Dead, Cream, Hermeto Pascoal, John Coltrane, Gong, most 60s and 70s cosmic, psychedelic, progressive, jazz and funk.
Dislike these Styles and musical qualities:
People who pay attention to what they donít like use the word overrated a lot.
Musical styles or qualities that I do not like:
I tend to be pretty detached and donít pay a lot of attention to what I donít like. None of this, however, takes away from the objective fact that hair metal is terrible.

Other musical activities:
In the 90s, I wrote for Audion and Exposť and a few other music zines and shot my mouth off on line a lot. I also played keyboards in Spiritcircle, a predecessor to Avant Garden (Spiritcircle were better because of me). I cofounded Gnosis in the 00s (which garnered us legions of progsnob awards, cellar dweller rants and blacklistings), spent some months on a blog called Outer Music Diary (which no one read) and then decided to retire from music activities apart from listening. Everyone is much happier, especially me.
Hobbies / obsessions:
I study the Western mysteries via the Golden Dawn system. Itís harder than it looks. Working with the system also brought the inner artist out in September 2011, my gallery can be found above.
