Roy Orbison is fucking brilliant. You are welcome to not like him, but putting him next to Michael Bolton with equal derision makes no sense at all.

I have significant overlaps with my parents. They don't like rock, but we all love American Songbook, small combo jazz, swing jazz, zydeco, folk and the blues. Lots of stuff.

I introduced my kids to music and the concept of listening with open ears to all music. I introduced each of them to their favorite artists: TV on the Radio for him; Etta James for her. The level of overlap is 80%+ with each of them.
