Some local radio jocks that knew him from way back(like from when he was still a kid in Dallas) had a tape(yes, a tape) of Stevie jamming at a local festival when he was 15. He could outplay a grown man, he sounded like he lit the fretboard on fire!

Might not be the most techincally proficient(Steve Vai warms up by playing Beethoven's 5th at 4x the intended speed), but SRV had chops to kill. One of the many great things about Texas.

Kool & the Gang! That brings back some memories. My Jr High School (what we called middle school) won a Kool & the Gang concert by collecting labels off Yoo Hoo (surely one of the most vile beverages in the history of mankind.) The contest would take color facsimiles as well as actual labels--we printed off hundreds of B&W copies (this was before color printers) and sat in class with crayons and colored pencils filling them in.

Been a long time since I've heard a vibraslap--much less seen one in a video! There were some good things about the 80s.

Best thing about the 80s was that they retrospectively made the 70s look good ;)

I grew up as an Elvis fan, still occasionally enjoy listening to him. Then moved more into old blues and jazz with my interest. But having been a teenager in the 70s with lots of slightly older friends, there is also a lot of classic rock stuff I like - and which red-blooded guy wasn't in love with Stevie Nicks in the 70s? :) A bit more embarrassing, but I also admit to a light crush on Suzi Quattro... And I still have to smile when I get surprised by tunes of the Sweet, Heart, etc.

but my real feefgood music is 40s/50s vocal jazz - Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and a whole bunch of other ladies, but also a bit of Sinatra etc. The classic 'American Songbook' music and a nice single malt are the perfect way to relax for me. That doesn't mean that a bit of Hendrix, SRV, any of Claptons incarnations, Led Zeppelin, or even KC and the Sunshine Band occasionally make me turn up the volume in the car :) Listening to Bessie Smith while writing this, btw.

The satellite radio in my shop is permanently stuck on Deep Tracks especially since they have stopped playing Velvet Underground's "Sister Ray" once a day. That was the one tune that would always make me change over to another station. Grinding and sanding whilst listening to Lou Reed (who I otherwise like) "sing' about tranny hookers and his ding-dong for 22 minutes just doesn't really work for me. :eek2: Perhaps my favorite little rediscovery has been the short lived early 70's Stephen Stills/ Chris Hillman project Manassas.

I've always favored this version, that whole show was awesome. I do enjoy Jimmy's original version, but there was something about that performance that just gets me. I've always wanted to play this on guitar, but never did get around to it.

Wagner--Introduction to the 3rd act of Lohengrin, Ride of the Valkyries (aka "Kill the Wabbit!" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nI9Nbt7oJG0))

Rossini's "Barber of Seville" (also well covered by Bugs Bunny (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfsYxdFTH9U))

Taz if you liked the Nightwish album then you'll most likely enjoy the new Epica album a little heavier and more "gothic" but great none the less, Sonarta Arctica again a slightly different take on the genre but very melodic with some folk/metal influence. Lots of great bands coming from the Scandinavian country's at the moment.

Hendrix and SRV get a lot of play here but as I start to get spring fever the Parrothead in me starts to show a bit.

Dave

I'll second that.

I'm pretty much a fan of anyone that plays the Strat. Check out Buddy Guy covering Jimi or Stevie - I've seen him at least a dozen times live - awesome shows, although to be honest, he got a little goofy in his later years once he 'crossed over' into borderline mainstream.

First saw Bob Seger as the house band at a bar called Beggar's Banquet when I was 17 in the 70's, and have a story about the song Main Street and a bar called Godfather's. Saw them again opening for Kiss later as a teenager, and saw him on tour last year as a bucket list item. So many great cuts, with Beautiful Loser to be played at my wake.

Nice find. I'm afraid that song is dangerously close to becoming a new Hotel California--in that it'll play on every station regardless of genre, either original or one of a thousand covers--but that's still pretty rad.

I'm not feeling the Mumford, how about you?

On at my house right now is one Middle Brother, but probably some Streetlight Manifest once I start shaping my thanksgiving bread. At work we rotate pandora stations between the cooks. I'll normally play The Cure radio, Clutch radio, or Weezer radio. I have an eccentric taste in music. It's all over the place. But I always listen to Jack Johnson on the 12 mile bicycle ride in, and something more peppy on the ride home to keep me awake.
