    I listen primarily to reggae, punk, surf rock, hip hop, dancehall, and classic rock. I'm also big into mid century MoTown/R&B stuff like Sam Cooke, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Marvin Gaye,and the Temptations. Chuck Berry is also one of my heroes. I don't listen to any current modern music for the most part.


    I started playing guitar when I was 12 (now 26). I play guitar, bass, and drums. I also have been working with a vocal coach for 3 years.

    Oh Rudy, why do you do this to me? Now I'm going to start ranting. Love ska. There are different kinds of ska contrary to most people's general belief. Ska is actually a precursor to reggae music. Reggae music is the slower brother of ska, but both are characterized similarly by the off-beat guitar chops you hear in reggae music (think Bob Marley's "One Love" rhythm guitar) which is called "skanking".

    Here's an example of 1960's ska (and one of my favorite songs):

    Now all the bands in the 1980's/1990's that are categorized as ska are more properly referred to as New Age/Third Wave ska. This includes bands such as: Sublime, Reel Big Fish, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Save Ferris etc.

    Very similar, but with obvious differences. Third Wave ska introduced more influences of punk music that was made popular in the late 1970's and 1980's when punk music and hardcore punk became a sub cultural phenomenon in the US and England. Punk influences ska, reggae influences punk, but everything in popular music (and I mean literally everything) comes from blues music.


    I could write a freakin' book on music especially punk, ska, and reggae.


    Sorry I had to go off like that I just can't help myself when it comes to music.

    This post made me happy haha. I have a best friend who loves and plays punk. He really introduced me to it and I can't stop listening to it. I grew up on reggae and ska due to my father who is a huge fan. Do you know the Toots and Maytals? they are my favorite..

    Do you know the movie This is England? If you don't it's a great movie and has all of those punk/ska bands in there. It's about the skinhead movement in the 1980' in England, and of course Ska was very popular in that era like you mentioned.
    Uh..go Giants?
