    About rock music: AC/DC, Kiss, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Motley Crue, Rolling Stones and recently Bon Jovi, at home and live.
    About blues: Gary Clark Jr., but in the past I used to play Chuck Berry's and BB King's to learn some new styles of solos and riffs.

    In general I prefer songs with long solos (so AC/DC's, Sabbath's...). I play solo a lot, but I want to try other people's style.

    You know, in life you never stop learning.

    Being a blues player mainly, I usually do some songs by guys like B. B. King, Elmore James, Freddie King, Willie Egan, Clapton/Derek, Muddy Waters and Hound Dog Taylor.

    The selection varies, but will typically include songs like "3 'o Clock Blues", "Talk to Me, Baby (Can't Hold Out)", "Key to the Highway", "Come On" and "Can't Understand It" (both by Willie Egan) and "See Me in the Evening" by HD Taylor.

    I don't play much live these days, though...

    When I'm a hired gun, I play whatever the money wants, but I'm known for D.Allman and Johnny Winter style blues. Miss Ann and Dreams are often on the menu.
    My jazz trio does some eclectic stuff, like an acoustic beatnik version of Manic Depression and very quick Cha-Cha arrangement of "What a Difference a Day Made"

    Quite a curve ball... I didn't get a chance to read yoyr whole list before you got rid of it. Been insanely busy the last few days. I would have liked to actually read your posts...

    Out of curiosity, do you have any live video or audio online of your jazz trio?

    No, but I'm trying to get the keyboardist and bassist to let me post something online. I'll let you know.

    Much appreciated! I understand band members can get very stingy with recordings. I never recorded with my previous bands because the sound quality with a drummer and bassist is too aweful to listen to most of the time, thats besides not getting along well with them very well.
