Just kinda curious what kinda music your children listen to and if you have had any influence on there musical tastes. I have a 9yr old son, and for his age he likes some different styles of music. I think he probably listens to more than others , but he enjoys the regular pop stuff thats on the radio and he also likes to listen to some Black Crowes,AC/DC,Oasis,Deep Purple,Bob Marley,Zeppelin,Ozzy,No Doubt, and some jazz too.
So some of my influences have rubbed off on him and he plays bass guitar also and that influences him in a certain direction also.

I have had the pleasure of taking my 25 year old daughter to see the Mule and the Brothers a few times at the Beacon and at the PNC two summers ago. She and her brother (who is 30) were always exposed to the Blues and Rock and Roll in my house. My son finally came to a Brothers show last March 23 for my 52nd B'day. He also has seen the Mule once at the Beacon.

I was a single dad from October 1991 till September 2001 and they both lived with me (my son was 14 and my daughter was nine when my ex-wife and I split up). Every Sunday for over three hours when I cooked for the week I had on all kinds of music to "cook with". It ranged from the Brothers, Mule, Yes, Clapton, Genesis, Floyd, to some lite metal, to pop and jazz.

They had their own tastes into some Rap (mostly my son for a few years until he finally saw the light), some R&B, some pop. My daughter was into Metal (Godsmack).

My daughter came around the last three-four years to the Blues side and really enjoys the Mule and ABB. I have also had the pleasure of exposing my 7 1/2 year old Grandson (my daughter's boy) to the great music of the blues and Rock & Roll. He knows when I switch off from group to group, and he will ask "Is it Mule time yet" when we play at my house. He plays a wicked air Guitar, Sax and drums.

I hope to do the same with my sons' boy who is only 21 months old. We will work on him soon enough.

I love to talk to them about all the great shows that I have had the pleasure of seeing since 1973. Long live Rock & Roll and of course the Blues!

Peace,
Jim

I don't know if I should really answer this, seeing as how I don't have children, but I can definitely speak for how my parents' music shaped me and my sister (my sis is 21 and I'm 24).

We grew up listening to just about anything you can imagine that came out of the 60s and 70s. My dad is an Elvis fanatic. I had learned all of the lyrics to every Elvis song (and the Elvis dance moves that accompanied every live performance) by the time I was 8. My dad is also a huge Beatles fan. My mom loves the Rolling Stones, James Taylor, Little Feat, ABB, and spent a summer following the Dead up and down the East Coast. We used to go the Philadelphia Folk Festival and other similar festivals every summer. We weren't even allowed to put on Top 40 Radio for the longest time.

My dad was in a band for the longest time, so from him, we learned to appreciate good guitarists and bass lines (he was a bass player). My mom was 10 years too young to have been a part of the hippie movement, but that was the kind of music she exposed us to.

My grandmother was probably Frank Sinatra's biggest fan. From her, I developed a love of jazz. We always listened to "Friday with Frank" and "Sundays with Sinatra" on the radio. And usually, we caught "Breakfast with the Beatles" too.

I remember when my mom would make us help her clean the house on the weekends. We would put CCR or the ABB on the stereo and turn it up as loud as it would go. When my sister would complain about how loud the music was, my mom would tell her that this was the kind of music that was made to be played loudly. If it was quiet, you'd lose the effect.

Unfortunately, I seem to be the only daughter who developed a love for this kind of music. My sister likes pop and rap. But, I hope to further her musical education this summer when I take her to Bonnaroo. I'm determined to make her see the light.

Even though my son is a headbanger he does enjoy Eat a Peach, CCR, Black Crowes,Deep Purple,Chuck Berry, The Stones and Johnny Cash among others. We have lots of common ground for listening choices when driving around. Good thing!!!

Way to go BlueeyedGirl, and yes it is OK to answer here. All are welcome.

I know my older Brother (who turned 60 in February) had some influence on me also when he played and sang the Beatles all the time.

Peace,
Jim

only their awareness while they continue to discover older music that i do not think is that old. My daughter plays piano and likes Greggs melodic songwriting but not his vocals although she can tell when Duane is in the group and prefers the brothers with DUANE!! she declared one day as if i did not know it that the Duane era group is more cuting edge rock than later lineups . All three have ABB T shirts and occassionally wear them while my daughter leans toward folky pop stuff and the Beatles(she's 16) my sons 18 &21 like the techno and rap but do like the Doors and the Stones.... I hear my self saying turn that crap down from time to time.

One thing i notice is they prefer individual songs than an entire cd( maybe its their attention span?)

My 12 year old got into guitar playing via Guitar Hero. He's now taking lessons on
a real guitar (he just got an Epiphone SG). He's into Sabbath and Metallica.
Hopefully when he gets past the "louder and faster" phase I can work in
some blues and allmans/dead.

I started learning a few years ago and now we have lessons at the same music
store at the same time (different teachers). It's just me (51!) and a bunch of
12 year olds taking lessons.

My daughter is pretty open to all music. Except rap. I did teach her something.

my 9 yr old daughter enjoys listening to & singing along w/ Hannah Montana, Christina Aguilera and that type although I have caught her humming the guitar leads to "Black Hearted Woman" from time to time. She certainly does not dislike my music but definately has her own taste.

My daughter is 12.When she was younger she liked ABB,NRPS,Jackson Browne,Eagles,and Cat Stevens.Now she listens to Hannah Montana,Jonas Brothers,Aly & AJ,etc.

She has basically told me she's at the age where it's just not cool to like your parents music,but I've caught her getting her groove on to Johnny Winter and MTB among others.

At least she doesn't like rap.

I have an 11 year old son & a 9 yr old daughter. 9 yr old daughter likes the Hannah Montana, Jonas Bros. etc. stuff...nuf said.

My son is much more diverse. He tends more toward the FM radio classics - Ozzy, GnR, Queen, etc. Not too into the bands like Floyd, Yes, etc.

Funny story - last year when he was 10, I purchased a CD (first in years). It was the remastered LAFE. I opened it up, downloaded it to my mp3 player, and then it disappeared. I go in one night to turn off my son's CD player & sure enough, there's Whipping Post playing on reapeat. He'd been listening to it over & over. He began listening to the whole thing & listened to it every night for awhile.

I was going to see the ABB @ the beacon for our annual boys night out, and he wanted to go. There's no way in hell a 10 year-old is going on Boys night out, so he was a bit disappointed when I told him no. A week after I went, I noticed that a ticket reseller was selling tix below face value for a Friday night show. After some convincing of my wife, my son & I headed to the Beacon one Friday last year to see the ABB. We got there early, hung out by the stage door to see them come in, we took a walk from the balcony to the front row during intermission, and we bought a $5 T-Shirt outside on the way home. He loved it. The Jukes horns played that night, and my son plays sax, so he loved that. They played Midnight Rider that night too, his favorite.

He's asking to go again this year, so I'll need to see if the ticket resellers get stuck again. At 11, he's still not ready for boys night out.

As an aside to this, I have to say the fans that night were great to him. Everybody was talking to him, making him feel welcome. I heard a lot of people say how cool it was for him to be there & how they wished they would have brought their kids.

To continue on the topic, he really likes the "popular" Queen music, especially Bohemian Rhapsody (BoRap to the kids these days). He wanted me to play it in the car on Saturday as we were running around. I said that the album "A Night at the Opera" was meant to be played from beginning to end, much like many albums of that era. He listened intently & learned a lot about different styles of music & how songs flow through an album. We finished it with the harpsichord version of God Save the Queen, as we pulled into his "honor band" concert for Sax on Sunday afternoon.

We'll see where it goes from here. He does like a lot of stuff I don't; but right now, he likes enough of "my music" to keep me happy.

Mike

My kids will be 5 in July. When I am with them I play Miles, Coltrane, Parker, Dizzy, Thelonious, Brubeck while making dinner. On car rides I try to play blues, Allman, Mule, Derek. Funny story I was playing some Susan T and they said they liked it. I mentioned Susan was married to Derek and they said no waay! Precious.

Shows I've attended with my 17 year old daughter and 19 year old son include:
Gov't Mule, ABB, Oteil & the Peacemakers, Kiss, The Who, Roger Waters, Clapton, NMAS, Primus, George Clinton & PFunk, Springsteen, Robert Randolph and Buddy Guy.
They both play guitar and my son also plays bass. They both have more varied musical tastes than I did at thier age.

I dont have kids and dont plan on having any for a while but I have to say my parents music has influenced my choices from the Bob Seger, Bruce Springsteen, Cat Stevens, ELP, Yes, Pink Floyd, to the music I get now for myself like Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, Derek Trucks, Coltrane, Davis, Sonny Rollins, Foo Fighters, George Clinton, Drive By Truckers, Black Crowes. Thankfully I went through my rap phase inn 6th and 7th grade even though by then I git yelled at by a DJ at the Top 40 station for requesting Floyd but friends still listen to Top 40 Rap stuff its a bummer when I goto parties or rode with them. Im thinking about getting a bunch of friends and dragging them to a Brothers show this summer if they come to Detroit.

When my son, who is now 12 was born, we made a cassette with "Blues for the
Rainforest" on one side and "Blue Incantation" (Garcia playing with an Indian
guitarist) on the other. We took the tape to the hospital to listen to when he
was born. We also took a tape of 2-18-71 and he was born on 2-18. For the first
6-7 years of his life he went to bed every night with that cassette playing. Each
night we would flip it over and play the other side. When he got old enough he
would flip it over and hit play himself. He must have heard those albums thousands
of times. Hopefully that was a good influence.

Growing up, the old man, when he was around, listened to Sinatra & the Rat Pack. My stepmom (since I was 2) listened to Ray Charles, Muddy Waters, Elvis, etc. I rebelled once the Beatles hit the scene.

My kids, when young, listened (by osmosis) to the 60's & early '70's. Everything from the Brothers to Elvis, to Van Halen, to Cream, to the Cars, to Grand Funk, to the Stones, to Dylan, to Van Morrison, to B.B. King, to John Denver, to the Byrds, to Janis, to Queen, to Hendrix, to Blondie, to the Everly Brother, to Marshall Tucker, to the Supremes, to the Doobie Brothers, to Emmy Lou Harris,to the Doors, to Dire Straits,to Linda Rhonstat,to the Four Tops, to Patsy Cline, to the Temptations, to Jimmy Buffet, to Charlie Daniels, to Hank Williiams (Sr. & Jr.) to ZZ Top, to Robert Palmer, to Rickey Nelson, to Frank Zappa, to Bad Company, to Led Zepplin, to Carol King, to Stevie Wonder, to Boston, to Lynrd Skynyd, to the Thunderbirds, to Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, to James Brown, to John Lennon, to Mountain, to Earth Wind & Fire, to Chicago, to Black Sabbath, to Little Feat, to Rick James, to Heart, to the Band, to AC/DC, to 38 Special, to the Hollies, to Deep Purple to Tommy James & the Shondells, to Aerosmith, to ............

Today, my son digs absolutely everything Clapton has ever done & eats up anything Duane did or Derek or Warren does. (Although, he still has that Dave Matthews problem, lol) My daughter can't get enough of the Beatles.

I must have done something right.....
