I wanna live better days
Never look back and say
It could have been me
It could have been me

Historically I like everything from classic (70s/80s) hard rock, metal, old-school rap, some country (Brooks, Cash, Nelson), grunge, post-grunge, punk, pop-punk, the blues (acoustic, delta mostly), some folk (Dylan, Guthrie, Davis), and so … Read more
