from my 16-year old:
Neil Young (old school)
Pink Floyd (old school)
The Killers (alt rock)
Soulja Boy (rap)
Enter the Haggis (touring celtic-rock band, better in person than on CD)

all over the place...

Tough call, lady - teen boys are all over the map for music.

Ethan likes rock classics - the Who, the Doors, the Stones, Metallica, Pink Floyd

Josh likes emo stuff - Good Charlotte, Blue October, etc.

Ben likes an interesting mix: John Mayer, Cat Stevens, Billy Joel, the Killers

And then there's all the rap/hip-hop stuff. Don't know if there's still an East Coast v. West Coast thing going on, so what you suggest in that vein might open a kettle of fish.

Oh sure, they're all over the map like we're all over the map but I didn't even know where to start. :) This helps. Thanks!

Veering to the rocker side, a few of the popular bands out there are: Nickelback (who actually likes them? I don't know, but they had like the best-selling album last year), Green Day, Linkin Park, All American Rejects

For hip-hop: T-Pain, Lil Wayne, Flo Rida, T.I., Kanye West

Emo: the Killers, Panic at the Disco, Fall Out Boy

Boys are an eclectic bunch, I see there are some classic rock lovers out there too.

Thanks for more ideas!

I was surprised but pleased to see some classic rock stuff too. This week I'll try to wade through some of these suggestions.

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
