1 in 3000
Reminiscing on the days when I was young and couldn't even understand the coded mastery presented in the music from such a celestial pair, I welcome nostalgia. Being from the west side I had a specific idea of how music sounded. Accustomed to what I was used to I had to learn the different styles and various forms of creativity expressed in art across the country. Black creativity was not new to me. Coming from the west side the household names were N.W.A., Tupac, Too $hort, Nate Dogg, and im sure you can picture the rest. So, that introduction to the alternative soul represented in the rhymes of Outkast and Andre 3000 himself has changed my life forever.
When I learn Bob Marley’s band the Wailers is playing a reunion show at a nearby theater the following evening, I go online and buy the first ticket I can find.

Everyone has their favourite bands. Some change all the time whilst others become long-term favourites. When I was younger, my favourites flatuated between Spice Girls, Sugababes, Atomic Kitten, Kaiser Chiefs and Busted. As I got older my tastes have changed and I have firm favourites like Depeche Mode and Nightwish. A lot of bands that I have loved have now split up. Sometimes it is hard, but necessary if there is tension between band members or if they want to go their own separate ways and do their own thing.
15 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Pink Floyd
1. Their name was thought up on a whim During their formative years, the band played under a number of different names: Sigma 6, The Abdabs, The Screaming Abdabs, before finally settling on The Tea Set. However, at a gig, another band playing on the bill with them also happened to be named The Tea Set. Thinking on the fly, the band's then-lead singer and guitarist, Syd Barrett, coined the name Pink Floyd--combining the names of two blues musicians he had seen on a record compilation he owned: Pink Anderson and Floyd Council.
