    Lou Reed. I have some of his albums but, as the thread title says, I should like him more.

    Bob Dylan. Legendary songwriter, but I don't like his voice and that ruins it for me.

    Radiohead.
    :(

    I like "some" songs, but just can't appreciate the entirety of their work.

    Al Green, I do like some songs and have several of his albums, but it's a bit too polished for me.

    You are correct, never cared for Bruce, his band is just a loud drone for me

    Joe Bonamassa. He just doesn't click with me, for some reason.
    Perhaps I compare him too much with Rory Gallagher.

    His albums with Blind Faith (Steve Winwood on vocals) and Derek and The Dominoes would be obligatory purchases. After that the guitar playing took a back seat to his singing for many years.

    Rush - they are super talented, but I can not stand Geddy Lee's voice.

    Ya, his Madison Square Garden live with Winwood is excellent.

    Just to update a bit...
    Chicago (like some of their stuff, but not enough to add to my collection).
    James Taylor (pleasant sound, but it doesn't grab me the way that say Jim Croce does).
    George Michael...
    This one came kinda out of the blue. I've always enjoyed his music, but never made that extra step to add him to my collection.
    I tried to get into his music after he died (same with Prince & Bowie), but it seemed like I was forcing it.
    8 months later I watched a Behind The Music documentary on YT and everything fell into place.

    Yeah, these 2 fit for me. I've tried hard to embrace the VU and just haven't gotten there.

    I like Dylan more, and his voice doesn't bother me at all - well, his 21st century voice does, but I have no issues with his singing in his "classic years" or into the 80s.

    But I just have never been able to feel lukewarm toward Dylan. Is he good? Sure. Do I get all the fuss? Nope - I can enjoy his music to a moderate degree but I have no passion for his work...

    OK, I've added GM.
    I may add Billy Joel for the wife.
    She likes to hear his songs when they come on the radio & I don't think she realizes just how many hits he had.

    I should like The Beach Boys but I cannot stand their music. To me it sounds like songs that were created in a mental assylum where people were also sampling acid.

    The Decemberists. If you described what they do to me on paper, I'd get pretty excited. I think they're horrible though.

    For me The Band are the converse... exactly the type of band that I usually can't stand but for some reason they really speak to me. Aside from Dylan and a handful of Beatles (plus jazz and R&B) they're the only "60s" band whose records I buy.

    Bruce Springsteen. I pretty often find a copy of Darkness on the Edge of Town when someone's record collection comes to me, so I know this album must have been huge at least in the area where I live. I just could never get into Springsteen beyond a few of his hits. I've tried to get into his music, but just can't.

    Same thing with Billy Joel. There are a few songs I like and listen to every once in a while - Allenstown, Brenda & Eddie, Pressure - but overall his music and themes just don't attract me as a listener. I used to listen to Billy Joel a lot though when I was younger. And I know Springsteen and Joel are considered great songwriters/musicians, but I just can't get into their stuff.

    Fleetwood Mac. I like some of their songs but can't really say I love them in any way. I d olike atleast one song fro mtheir classic albums like Rumours and the 1975 s/t. I am however more drawn to their late 60's to early 70's period but even there it's the same thing. Overall they do make music I should like based on the genres I enjoy but I don't find myself enjoying them as much.

    This doesn't mean I like them less than other acts but they were the first ones i could think of...

    Rundgren is a big one for me. I like the Utopia Oops Wrong Planet and some of his songs but I have just never really connected with him the way some have.

    Lou Reed is another one. VU/Nico is great and White Light. He has great songs though I just do not connect with him.

    No go on the Billy Joel.
    Seems we hear him too often on the radio.
    Probably the same reason I don't have anything by Phil Collins either.

    James Taylor

    I like some of their songs. I just can't get into them like I do my favorite bands/artists.

    And Motown.
    Just way overplayed.
