That's what music does for me. It completes my life. And the older I get the more my taste in music changes. I remember when I was 11 my dad bought my first record for me. It was something by Alabama. I loved it until my friends told me it was country. Oops. Then of course the were the 80's. Micheal Jackson, Culture Club, Duran Duran, etc. And the 90%, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, PJ Harvey, The Lemonheads, and Blind Melon. And now it seems that I am slowly coming full circle. Alternative Country. For those of us not ready to admit they like a little country.
