Franz Schubert is in my top 3. Perhaps Bartok (sp?). Third spot is
tough.. I really like Tchaikovsky and Mozart and Brahms.

I must also admit to being a closet Elton Fan. Rod Stewart, as well.
Most people who know me would be shocked because I really like Metallica
as well. Oh well,  I like most music. 
You like jazz or blues? Ever hear any John Lee Hooker?


A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he
cares about more than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable
creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the
exertions of better men than himself.

- John Stuart Mill, writing on the U.S. Civil War in 1862
