Wow! What a question! But I don't have to think too hard. I've always enjoyed rock music - almost all the subgenres I've listened to - the best. So I'd like to think of myself as a rock-music-listener (and performer, though not very frequently), above all else. I guess, since there is no subgenre limitations or anything, I could live with only listening to rock music for the rest of my life and be happy and satisfied with my choice. (The music I listen to is already 90% rock, anyway)

As to why, there are so many reasons. Sure, rock music isn't as sophisticated as jazz, for instance, but in my opinion, quality rock music doesn't sit behind jazz considering musical diversity. There's improvisation in jazz, well there is improvisation in rock, too - that's how you jam together, for crying out loud! You don't have to perform jazz, you just have to know your instrument really well and like to fool around with it. That's why I think rock musicians can do pretty much anything with enough knowledge and practice since rock is a very welcoming genre concerning new, different and untried musical experiments. When you say rock, the span is so wide you can't decide what to listen to. I mean, under the title "rock" you can find pretty much anything from sappy love ballads to angry, anarchist punk-rock to good old, dependable classic rock to progressive to grunge and to, well everything. I don't think there is one person who can find nothing, absolutely nothing, likable in the wide bandwidth of rock music.

And also, I just love, love, love how my electric guitar sounds. In clean, overdrive or distortion. Whether it be playing riffs with power chords, or sweep picking or just strumming along softly, singing to yourself, the electric guitar defines me.

So, as they once said,

Let there be rock!
