Wow - sounds like you got to see some amazing concerts! Welcome to the site - we look forward to seeing your contributions on here :)
Hello all, my name is Julian Medrano and I am originally from Houston, Tx but retired to here in the Tampa Bay area after 29 years of service in the US Coast Guard. I've been married to my one and only for 26 years and have 4 beautiful babies. Since I've retired I have been loving life and enjoying the time I have been able to spend with my family. Also, I will be going to college as a full time student starting in August.
I have been a huge music lover since forever partly due to me playing drums for as long as I can remember. It's hard to fathom now that the music I loved as a kid is considered "classic rock" when it seems like yesterday I was trying to jam along with songs on my 8-track lol My favorite band of all is RUSH and have seen them 11 times in concert! My other favorite bands are Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Foghat, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and on and on and on. As I said I play drums and have played in a few bands through the years but nothing serious. I am currently playing a couple of Open Mic Nights as the "house drummer" and have been asked to join a couple of bands, so we'll see what happens with that.
My love for music has transferred to my kids as well, that as a matter of fact we as a family in our home are in the middle of creating our Medrano Family TOP 100 Classic Rock songs of all time! My kids are huge music lovers and so proud of it. Just to give an example when my youngest was 10 years old, we took a trip to Orlando and without her knowing I listened back to her singing War Pigs :) lol
Anyways, I am ALWAYS on here and always rockin' it out. It's always good to meet like minded people so feel free to say hello! ROCK ON \M/
"Rock and Roll can never die" and we must keep the music alive!
Hey thats awesome that your kids like Classic Rock. Because, I really don't know too many kids my age that like Classic Rock. Awesome!!
hi im Newell and i love Classic Rock!
I guess the real story of me getting into Classic Rock is this:
I always hated The Beatles as a small kid. (I had horrible Musical Taste) Anyway, All of my sisters Loved them and tried to get me to like them. I was so stubborn and for two years I stayed that way. Then one day, i heard he song Yellow Submarine and ever since then I have Loved The Beatles and Classic Rock more than anyone else!
Hah! You can never have enough Beatles! 8)
Hi, i'm a girl.
