Neither of my parents likes music at all. I vividly remember my dad coming into my room when I was 15 and looking in despair at my record collection (about 20 records at this stage) and saying “I really think you’ve got enough now”.


Dad Beatles
Mum westlife

My tastes are a combination of the two

Dad: The Beatles & Rolling Stones but mostly classical music.
Mum: Not really fussed about music.

Mum: The Rolling Stones
Dad: Bob Dylan (but also a huge Neil Young fan)

They both like loads of different stuff though.

Dad: Ry Cooder
Mum: She’d probably say The Beatles, but she’s definitely settled into MOR-mumness since the early 90s.

Dad: John Denver, Linda Ronstadt, various small folky country type acts

Mum: is aware that music exists


Dad: Queen, Thin Lizzy, Travelling Wilburys
Mam: Rod Stewart, Dire Straits, Paolo Nutini

Both love music in general though and have always asked after what I’m listening to even if it’s not their thing.

I bought a Nina Simone record a few years back and Dad beamed so proudly when he saw it. The only time I ever saw him really properly drunk, he had just come back from the pub and he knocked on my door to say “SON. Had an idea, let’s play that Nina album over and over on Christmas day! Ok good night!” It was like 1am in October


Dad: Rolling Stones
Mum: Elvis

Dad had quite eclectic taste and always kept up with modern stuff when I was growing up.

My mum solely listened to Elvis, ABBA, Fleetwood Mac, Simon & Garfunkel, Dolly Parton and Roy Orbison. (All great though so no complaints from me)
