My Own Music Artists List

Hi There,

Not so much about technology today, but I have been asked many times about music, what I like, what I don’t.

Here is a list of artists I like, even if it is for a unique single song or an entire career. Bands and singers do not appear in a particular order, I just put names in it in a very random way. Most of it is very well known mainstream global music, yet I have chosen to add French music as well, and other bands that I like for particular reasons (Original Motion Picture Soundtracks for example). Some are heavy metal, other comes from ’70s Rock’n’roll, and I have included more romantic, or fun or entertaining style. Don’t expect to find a mood, or a style in there. Many artists will appear 2 or 3 times if they are part of several bands or had another career as a solo singer.
By the way, I did not try to count how many items you will retrieve here, it might not be a Top 100 as you can find many out there on the net. And I don’t pretend to be such a fine listener as the guys at Rolling Stone magazine…
