First and foremost, I'm a true Lightfoot fan. Have been since 1969. I still listen to Gord more than anyone else. Over and over, and I don't get tired of his music.

In all these years, very few artists have ignited my enthusiasm like Gord has. I enjoy Bob Dylan (some, not all), I like Bruce Springsteen, some Nanci Griffith, was a big Stan Rogers fan and others.

I never thought I'd come across anyone that excited me as much as Gord but much to my surprise I did about a year ago in the music of Rufus Wainwright (who I was delighted to see at Massey Hall last December). He's not like Gord in too many ways, but his lyrics are off-beat/original and he doesn't fit in the pop mold.

Anyway, I'd love to read about your favourite artists and why.

I really like this Aengus Finnan guy. I heard his song "Lightfoot" and loved it. I think I will buy one of his CD's and give it a whirl...

Long before I ever really got into GL,I was a big Neil Diamond fan. I thought his songs were really ..ahem..deep. Some were but not like GL's and GL is more relatable for me. I like mostly 70s as opposed to the 80s which was when I was a teen.

I also was into the early 80's Aussie group Men At Work. They had such a unique sound,I thought they'd last for years and years,not just 3! I was then into Wham (yeah,what of it? ) then thankfully Bryan Adams and U2 became fav's.

In the 90s I got into lots of music,even some rap. I have though such a vast collection of music it'd be impossible to list all I listen to. Been me,later!

For some reason, I've gotten into listening to REM more lately. I had never heard the "Out of Time" album, (the one with "Losing My Religion" on it). I picked up a copy and really enjoyed it.

REM is a great band. I just picked up the new DVD concert from Ireland not too long ago. They are in the studio now with a new album, actually, it might be completed by now.

Peter Mayer (http://www.petermayer.net/blueboat/index2.asp), a Stillwater, MN based singer/songwriter. He has recorded 6 CD's and is fantastic in concert. His guitar playing is accomplished but he is currently sidelined with carpal tunnel problems. Check out his song "Blue Boat Home"! Reminds me of the best of Gord's stuff.

Never heard Rufus actually but I have listened alot to his dad Loudon Wainwright III. YouŽve already know about him but if not itŽs worth a try.
