The Who, Stones, AC/DC, Beatles, Floyd, etc.; dig them all, even some
classical and jazz.

So what draws me to The Big Rock Candy Mountain from 1928 ???

Maybe it's that line Where they hung the jerk that invented work... ?
...or from a past life...

I'm a classic rock guy too, but I branched out years ago.

Bluegrass is just plain awesome and everything you listen to is related to it in some way or another.

I like that song too :-)

It’s “…about a hobo's idea of paradise, a modern version of the medieval concept of Cockaigne.”

Maybe because the Coen Brothers built O Brother, Where Art Thou? around that song?

What doesn't make sense? You like Rock, this song has Rock right in the title!

Wasn't that the Soggy Bottom Boys' Man of Constant Sorrow and
Homer's The Odyssey?

I remembered it from O Brother, probably the only part of the soundtrack I'd ever before heard.

Well, anything with John Hartford was pretty easy to fall for!

There's a lake made of stew
And of whiskey, too
You can paddle all around
In a big canoe

I really like that tune! A few years ago I went down the rabbit hole of youtube and searched for anyone doing this song. There were some very good to very bad versions out there. smiley-shocked003
