Just a few of my fave R&R artists here. I have many other fave styles of music... electronic, classical, jazz, world, blues, etc... not even listed here. Perhaps I'll get to that one day. The listing here is pretty abridged as it is, although it might seem long. It's already been whittled down from tens of thousands... LOL. My absolute faves are shown like this:  

As for my categorization schemes here... well, nomenclature is a personal thing. PS: I'm slowly compiling many of these (more obscure) bands & cuts on CDR sampler comps. See my other pages if you're curious.
