I can honestly say that I have pretty much stayed with my old favorites...Zep, Bowie, Joni, Janis, Doors, Bonnie, CSNY, Clapton, Stevie Ray, etc. Others, too, but I'll stop there.
Came back to modify...I do like all kinds of music, but always have done so! Love the blues, reggae, like some country, some jazz, some classical...even a teeny-tiny bit of hip-hop. Not bad for an old lady, huh? But, I'm a rocker at heart.

I grew up in a household where music was playing constantly. My parents always played the Stones, John Denver, Van Morrison, Warren  Zevon, Bowie, etc. (and I love them all and have been fortunate to have seen all of them with no without my folks. However, I think the person I've really grown to appreciate through the years in a way I hadn't when I was a kid is Emmylou Harris. Just magical to me! Even now I still love her aging voice.

Emmylou is great...do you have the album with her & Mark Knopfler together? Wonderful.

Lots of them.  But I'll go with metal in general.  It's still not exactly my "thing", but I can understand the appeal, and have grown to appreciate some of the stuff that I think I used to find just loud and relatively tuneless.

Granted, there's plenty of metal that I think IS tuneless, and deliberately so.

That's funny! I say this because I've been on a metal kick lately. All the stuff my brother was learning to play in the 80's...Motörhead, Iron Maiden, Anvil...also a few " hair bands" haha

Opera.

With the exception of this one Stockhausen opera that I can't remember the name of, I always hated it. Could always appreciate the immense talents of people like Jose Carreras and Maria Callas, but couldn't get into the music. I thank (former Nightwish singer) Tarja Turunen for beginning to turn me around.

A band whom i have been enjoying some of their tunes lately....is Runrig (A Scottish Band). If you have ever seen the Movie Local Hero, their music would fit in to the soundtrack so well. Anyhoo, I didnt really take much notice of them before, i pretty much dismissed them out of hand.
But i must admit, the do have some "Bonnie" tunes
