    I've exhausted my Spotify playlist and need some new additions.

    Any suggestions? I like The Doobie Bros, Jim Croce, Rafferty, Dire Straits (a lot), supertramp, and some good ol CCR. You know, none of that new fangled stuff coming out these days lol.

    Open to any suggestions, thanks! !!

    I'm on the road a lot for work, and I have a wide variety of playlists, spanning decades, on various media and apps. These are on my "road trip" lists, older artists who mix nicely with more contemporary.
    How about:
    Joan Jett
    Melissa Etheridge
    Bonnie Raitt
    Traffic/Steve Winwood
    Robert Palmer (gone but not forgotten)
    Alan Parsons Project
    Heart
    Steely Dan
    George Benson (to mellow out)

    Scout is a Bieleber.

    Honestly though, if you've never listened to some good banjo, listen to Foggy Mountain Breakdown.

    Each Friday (technically is't Saturday), my hockey team goes to our sponsor bar after our games and I play Foggy Mountain Breakdown. Its hard for people to not tap their feet.

    LITS,

    In the Summer of 1973, when I was in high school, I attended a wedding. The Earl Scruggs Review played at the reception in the living room of the Bride's family home. This was, of course, after the breakup of Flatt and Scruggs.

    For something different, try Iron Horse's mash-up of Bluegrass and Metallica.

    Wait, so the Earl Scruggs Review was actually at the wedding playing?

    Nice. I like this bluegrassification of Paul Simon's Graceland. I really like this group too.

    Yes. In the living room of the Freeman home on Ensworth Ave. in Nashville, TN.

    Most vivid memory: A lot of very well-dressed people singing the chorus of "Salty Dog" into their longnecks.

    Exactly the kind of thing one doesn't appreciate until much later on.

    Even better memory: Ten years old, dressed in my Sunday suit and monk strap shoes, sitting front row at the Louis Armstrong concert at Vanderbilt Gymnasium.

    Glad to see other mixed lash-ups here. One of my Pandora Stations is "Wolfgang, George and Antonio." No doubt we have given OP much to consider.

    I listen to Eminem, 50 Cent, Slaughterhouse, Body Head Bangerz, Juicy J, and Bad Meets Evil, amongst others. I'm feeling like the odd man out here.

    But I also listen to a lot of Toby Keith, Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw, and lots of other country, so I guess that balances out the hardcore rap.

    Rap to work out, country to relax.
