Oh how I loathe Kid Rock.....

I loathe anyone that does not know how to dress for a country stage, so many today dress like its a rock concert or something. To me very disrespectful of the stage. I am actually suprised its accepted for real.  :tickedoff:

Who you calling a dinosaur ya old fart.  :evil6: :evil6: Thats young stuff. Old bluegrass  is old shit.  :wink:

These are some you might not have heard.

Willie Nelson from Red Headed Stranger.A mix of the songs shortened a little.

If he hadn't drowned, and even since he did, we cannot leave Jeff Buckley's 4 octave range voice off of ANY greatest singer/songwriter list...

Grace

[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siNsgbIWhAQ"]

Hallelujah

[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AratTMGrHaQ&feature=related]

So Real

[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WolmjxD4hn4&feature=related]

Forget Her

[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noQH6lyu0sA&feature=related]

For my money, the greatest voice ever, and proof to me there can't be a benevolent god for taking him away...

EDIT:  Nevermind, embed is disabled on these links, just copy and paste it..

ghostmaster  I listened to a couple of the Jeff Buckley songs.I actually hadn't heard of him.

I don't think of this topic as a "greatest " list just "some songs of our lives ".

I don't know your age but I'm probably older.I listen to a wide range of music.

If you like some octave range then You have to include Roy Orbison.

Roy Orbison

This one starts with a German intro.

Roy when older but still sounds good.

btw even if the links don't embed they are easier to use as links I think all you have to do is not bracket them.
