If you like Deep Purple, I'm curious what you thought of Voodoo Circle at PP this year.

I'm surprised at how many Bruce Sprigsteen fans there are on here. By that I mean 2 of them.
I like him too.
Favorite band-DT or Rush, depending on what day it is.
Power metal-Kamelot or Iced Earth.
Prog metal other than DT-The proggy era of Savatage. Huge into Seventh Wonder lately.
Traditional metal-Maiden and early Savatage.
NWOAHM-Lamb of God
Not just Tits in a Corset metal-Nightwish.
Miscellaneous bands I love for some odd reason-Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, early Chicago.
Lets see, this is at the moment as it changes. Favorite Prog Metal band - Circus Maximus
Favorite Power Metal Band - Brainstorm
Favorite band - Symphony X
I have to throw out Alter Bridge, Tesla, Steve Miller for the best in their particular genres
Also, I didn't see anyone else mention Springsteen on this thread. Who's the other fan besides me (and gilpdawg)?
Despite just entering my 30s, Springsteen truly is my favorite artist of all time. Been a fan since I was 5 years old and he was the first large arena concert I ever saw (when I was 9 my aunt and uncle took me and my older sister) and I've seen him twice since then. I own every one of his studio albums on CD, most of his older catalog on vinyl, every official DVD he's put out, loads of live bootleg DVDs and CDs, and all of his authorized biographies, plus various other clothing and pieces of rock memorabilia. That's more than I can say about any metal artist I've ever been invested in, except maybe Doro.
Overall - Extreme and Dream Theater
Power Metal - Helloween
Prog Metal- Symphony X
(ask me again tomorrow and you'll likely get a different answer...)
