The most consistent music in my life, EVER, has got to be the body of work from the Sherman Brothers, Richard and Robert. There is NO one, no group, no singer, who has even come close to the effect these two magical guys have had on my life. 2nd in line would be Jimmy Buffett (fins up!), the background music to our lives the past twenty years, and rounding out third I'll toss up between composer John Williams and the original Queen (Freddie, I still miss you so!)

(how come everybody else here only lists rock bands? don't you like any other genres of music?)

Mac Attack

I could add the Allmans and Skynyrd, but I developed an appreciation for them much later than for Zep or Sabbath.

Mine changed over the years.
In the 70s, I grew up with Led Zeppelin and was riveted by their output until Presence when I gave them a stern warning - then dropped them with the paper bag album.

In the 80s, I really couldn't find anything so stuck with the Beatles/Macca, Stones, Aerosmith, Floyd, Queen, Yes, etc. but they were all revolving at #2, without a #1.

In the 90s, I got into Alice in Chains pretty heavy and was disheartened when Layne died. Soundgarden and Jane's Addiction were in the #2 area at that time.

Elliott Smith has since been my favorite artist, even after his death.

Miley Cyrus. I was 11 when she started, and through all the Anti-Miley comments I see everywhere, I'll be 16 in 3 months and still haven't given her up.

I would give my top five all time greatest artist that are always on my play list as Jimmy Reed, The Rolling Stones, , Bo Diddley, Frank Sinatra, Elvis. In terms of new artists I find Gabriel Sullivan a consistent favorite. As you can tell by my list I am a baby boomer.

Genesis (since 1974)
Favorite: Klaus Schulze (since 1978)
Hans Joachim Roedelius (since 1979)
Longest: Bee Gees (since 1968)
Tangerine Dream (since 1976)

These are all probably in my top 5, but at least in top 10.

One unique thing about the music I liked a lot in my life is that I continue to like it today (about as much as ever). I listen to approximately 100 artists regularly throughout my life.

A while ago I saw on VH1 classics the all time best popular music of all time show top 100. There were many of the groups that should have been on the list that were, Beatles were #1 which you would probably expect. But they omitted a couple of groups that I thought was ridiculous, they were Deep Purple (come on a group that came out with, Smoke on the Water) & Creedence Clearwater Revival (Proud Mary & many other greats).

To W Karl: One of my first albums I ever owned was "Pieces of Eight" so when I saw them on this last tour playing EVERY song from that album, it was VERY special to me, so I started liking the arena stuff first. But I recently started listening to their old stuff and really fell in love with the song "Mother Dear" from Equinox. J.Y.'s mother (93 years old this month) lives close to my house and I spoke with J.Y.'s brother Eric last month. We are going out for pizza later this month in Orland Park, IL. I think it is so cool that I fell in love with a pretty famous band as a kid, only to find that I got to meet them later in life due to proximity. Rock stars have to live somewhere and they don't all live in Los Angeles.

To Wallofvoodoo: I saw that same VH1 show and it lost credibility with me fast. Ludacris made the list, but not The Eagles? Zero credibility even if they do put the Beatles #1.

Since you only mentioned 1 for me it would be Paul Kantner through three bands, several interesting projects, countless contributions, spin-offs, always trying to tweak the boundaries and never quite making it big. He never gave up or sold out. I admire that. Ironically, he left the Starship before they made it big.

On a personal level, I bumped into him once at an Airplane concert in 1969 (Crown of Creation roll-out) and in an amazing coincidence, my sister (an RN) helped deliver China. At the time, I lived in Connecticut, she, in Frisco.

OK, the rest of the top five: Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, David Benoit, Zappa (not in any order).

I could never narrow it down to 5, but to the spirit of the question, Hendrix would be the bandwagon I've been on the longest without falling off
