<flummoxed look> I haven't even heard of most of these. I was raised on classical music (especially Tchaikovsky, whom my dad loves) and, er, Anne Murray (whom my dad also loves, and I rather like her music, too). I can't think of any bands that I know of and like. I do listen to a lot of anime music and I hear various pop and rock and techno things due to friends, dining hall music selections, etc. though darned if I can identify them. I compose, though not nearly as well as the other musical p0eople on this list. =^) And I do something that might generously be termed art, though I have a lot to learn. ( My pop culture IQ is about -20, too. Ah well. YHL, popping out of the woodwork again
