From Karl at Secondhand Tryptophan (he didn't tag me - I just felt like doing this one):
You Can Dance With Me: A Meme of Musical Proportions
Of all the bands and artists in your collection, of which one do you own the most albums?
Probably Yes, followed closely by Judas Priest.
What was the last song you listened to?
Dark Crucible, "Haunted" (I was singing along with the instrumental track).
What’s in your CD player right now?
My weekly vocal practice CD.
What are your favorite instruments?
I really love a nice, crunchy electric guitar.
Who’s your favorite local artist/band?
Aside from my own? I'd have to say Action Figure even though I don't get out to see them often enough.
What was the last show you attended?
The Scissor Sisters
What was the greatest show you’ve ever been to?
Monsters of Rock was pretty cool. I've also seen Queensryche a couple of times and been extremely impressed with their live sound and performance.
What’s the worst band you’ve ever seen in concert?
One of the times we saw Emerson, Lake and Palmer, they were clearly having an off day.
What band do you love musically but hate the members of?
Guns n' Roses
What is the most musically involved you have ever been?
Right now, writing lyrics and melodies, taking vocal lessons and recording with my band. The only thing that could step up my level of involvement at this point would be a lot of live performances.
What show are you looking forward to?
We're hoping to see Lacuna Coil next month.
What is your favorite band shirt?
I wish I had my old Judas Priest shirt from the Turbo tour, but it disintegrated in the wash long ago.
What musician would you like to hang out with for a day?
Cheesy as it sounds, I'd enjoy talking about lyric writing with Jon Bon Jovi.
What musician would you like to be in love with you for a day?
Luckily for me, my drummer husband is in love with me every day.
What was your last musical "phase" before you wised up?
I let myself be drawn into the "grunge" look for a while when I was in an alternative band. I still have more XL flannel shirts than a person needs.
Sabbath or solo Ozzy?
That's a toughie. I'll have to go for solo Ozzy.
Did you know that filling out this meme makes you a music geek?
What was the greatest decade for music?
I'd have to say the 1970s.
What is your favorite movie soundtrack?
Can I pick more than one? I care a great deal for the "Wayne's World" soundtrack, but there's nothing like the "Mortal Kombat: Annihilation" soundtrack for driving around on a sunny day with the car stereo cranked.
Who is your favorite artist who is much better live than on a recording?
I have to agree with Karl's choice: Barenaked Ladies.
Do you have a hidden desire to be a popular musician?
Ain't nothin' hidden about it!
Have you ever used drugs to enhance the music experience?
No, I'm a goody two-shoes about drugs. However, I've been known to drink a good deal of beer at a concert (but only if someone else is driving, kids!).
What was the last song you heard that gave you a chill?
"Side of a Bullet" by Nickelback always gives me a chill because of what it's about.
Where would you be without music?
Bored and creatively unfulfilled.
