I didn't realize that an old post of mine would generate so much interest especially since I was not even a part of it.

I think I'm happy you agree with me, but I think it is just a coincidence that your friend is "a barrister near retirement". There are people of all ages with very narrow tastes in music and in their ability to adapt to the manor in which it is created.

I have one particular friend who plays a great lead guitar but he only wants to play old rock or disco. He hates anything with a violin or steel guitar.

To me, that is the beauty of music. While it is consider to the universal language it still has its many dialects. Just like a language the music you grow up with tends to be the music you like the best. I was lucky that we had all kinds of music around the house and I found I enjoy a wide range of it.

What Iíve found to be the best advice is not to try to force my tastes on others. It wins no arguments and loses friends.
