    Rock for me. Doesn't Primus need their own category???

    If I had to limit myself to one style, I'd go with the Stax soul sound...organ and brass dominant.

    I voted Guitar Rock, but I'm currently in an Indierock thing that has an equally prominent keyboard. Answering Other just woulda made me feel lonely(er). :unsure:

    Really?? A guitar was pretty important to John Denver's music and I wouldn't put him in the same category as Slayer or Mercyful Fate.

    If metal isn't guitar rock, I don't know what is. I'd put Henry John Deutschendorf in a folk or folk/pop category, so other in this poll.

    Then why not edit your options for a rock/metal category and a folk/pop one to differentiate between the two?? Guitar Rock on its own seems to be too broad of a category and I would expect that the majority of the votes will wind up there.

    Imo, of course :)

  14. That most poll respondents will fall into an overly broad, oddly delineated category? What does that tell you?

    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell

    I have two regular gigs, and this how it breaks down:
    90% yacht rock (not my favorite- but it pays well )
    10% Heavy oldies (my favorite- but it doesn't pay well)
