i, too, am new to this group thang...
The names Stacy, im a jersey gal (i know, hold the excitment)
I have a small problem with basing my life around music... it plays a rediculously huge role in my life, and has progressed to being the sole source of my money drainage and the occupant of my summers- next summer being the first time i spend the entire break touring.
Bands i like: Well im slightly obsessed with Grateful Dead (okay, maybe slight is an underexaggeration...) im into Janis Joplin, Marley, Simon and Garfunkel, String Cheese, Yonder Mountain String Band, Gov't Mule, Big Wu, Dispatch, Disco Biscuits, Bob Dylan, Nick Drake, moe., the New Deal, Zeppelin, the Beatles, Ani Difranco, Indigo Girls, Bela Fleck, Allman bros, Widespread Panic...
just to name a few. (i have somewhat eclectic taste... mostly classic rock, folk rock and jambands i guess)
people call me a free spirit and a hippie often, im just doing my thing, living my life and obsessing over (good) music. Thats the way it goes, and the way it should be.
So hello, my fellow music obsessees!
