Fan Of These Bands

Back in 2007 I had written a post about the number of years that I had been a fan of my favourite bands. 2007 is such a long time ago now and it’s time to see how may years have I been a fan of the artists that I enjoy listening to so much. My list of songs & albums and decided that it deserved a post. So here it is, in descending order, the bands that I have been a fan of (Iā€™m not including bands that have disbanded but artists who have died are included, provided that they have a considerable amount of recorded material) :
