My heart is in metal. Old school metal, like Priest and Maiden, Dio and Queesryche. I also am really getting into Avantasia and Nightwish. That said, I have also spent many years touring in a country band as well as having started my musical career playing jazz. I guess you could say I'm well rounded.
