    Rick Beato just did a live-stream on one of my favorite Duran tunes, Ordinary World.  Got to actually play this with a former band, and except for the last two chords of the intro we had it mostly right.  The musicians here have prolly already seen the Beato video (a livestream so a lot of fumbling, sales, and no editing) but I'm posting the official DD video, just cuz its such a great, great song!

    It was sixteen years ago today that Brad Delp took his own life.  That Voice still gives me goosebumps.

    I didn't know this footage existed until tonight.

    hated  Skynyrd in college, half the males on the dorm floor played their hockey sticks to this miserable song thrice (or ten times) daily.  And in my part-time music career, had drunks yelling for this song from '78 til, what, 2019? 

    And yet, a decade of alcohol-soft middle late age later, I hear/see this song tonight, and feel like a teenager again.  And girls, GIRLS at a rock concert!  Girls loosely-wrapped in gossamer whisps of fabric!  I really enjoyed watching this, hope you do too.  (and RIP, Gary...)

    I bought the 2-yr old Silk Sonic album last year, and it stayed in rotation for quite awhile. I've put it back in my car and it's even better the second time around; absolutely love this. 

    By a chance coincidence I got a band interested in me, just talking to a sales/lesson guy at the local Guitar Center (don't think I've stepped in one in ten years!) They were looking for not one, but two keyboardists to add, kind've a dream of mine (Toto!) and I was pretty excited. They emailed me about ten songs, and I had bitten off more than I could chew, they were more soul/R&B, songs from EW&F, Maze, Tower of Power, Chaka Khan, Aretha, Jill Scott, Patrice Rushen, Justus Brothers. Love that kind've music but its way out of my skill set. They hadn't heard the other keyboardist yet either at the audition, but I was in over my head and didn't get hired. 

    Still, it was a good experience and when they asked me what songs I'd like to do (before they heard me) I mentioned Level 42, and this song from the Silk Sonic disk:

    Gorgeous, but it's a lot more complicated than I realized also, four key changes in it (which just make me smile). I understand the other leader, Anderson .Paak, also has a formidable catalog and I need to look into some of his stuff.

    One of the few things I like about farcebook is being able to follow favorite artists, without being filtered by writers/editors, about small sections of their life.  
    I've been a longtime fan of Adrian Belew, guitarist/singer/composer for Frank Zappa, King Crimson, The Bears (who I got to see live), Talking Heads, and a solo artist with a dozen or so albums.  He posted this tonight:
     
    in case you don't get this joke, here's the story:
    In 1978 I did my first tour of Europe as "stunt" guitarist and singer for Frank Zappa's band. The night we played in Cologne, Germany unbeknownst to me Brian Eno was in the audience. Brian knew David Bowie was looking for a new guitarist for his upcoming tour. He called David after seeing our show and told David he should come see the guitarist for Frank's band.
    The next night we performed in Berlin. There was a part of the show where Frank took an extended guitar solo and most of the band members, including myself, left the stage for a few minutes. As I walked to the back of the stage I looked over at the monitor mixing board and saw David Bowie and Iggy Pop standing there.
    Wow! I couldn't believe it!
    So I walked over to David Bowie, shook his hand and said, "I love what you've done, thank you for all the music". And he said, "Great, how would you like to be in my band?" I motioned back towards Frank and said, "Well, I'm kind of playing with that guy." David laughed and said, "Yes, I know, but when Frank's tour ends my tour starts two weeks later. Shall we talk about it over dinner?"
    David said he would meet me back at our hotel and sure enough when I arrived back at the hotel David Bowie and his assistant Coco Schwab were sitting on a couch in the lobby. As I walked past them they whispered to me, "Get into the elevator, go up to your room, come back down in a few minutes, and meet us outside. We have a car waiting."
    It was like something out of a spy film.
    When I came back down and went outside there was a black limousine waiting. The driver opened the door and I got in the back with David and Coco. David immediately launched into all this plans for his upcoming tour, the songs we would play, the staging, and so on, and how much he loved my guitar playing! It was so exciting! He said they were taking me to one of his favorite restaurants in Berlin.
    How many restaurants are there in Berlin? 25,000?
    We arrived at the restaurant, went in the front door, and who should be sitting at the very first table but Frank Zappa and the rest of the band! So the three of us sat down with Frank and the band. David, trying to be cordial, motioned to me and said, "Quite a guitar player you have here Frank."
    And Frank said, "F••• you Captain Tom."
    (note: Frank had demoted David from Major Tom to Captain Tom.)
    David persisted, "Oh come on now Frank, surely we can be gentleman about this?"
    Frank said, "F••• you Captain Tom."
    By this point I was paralyzed. David said, "So you really have nothing to say?" Frank said, "F••• you Captain Tom."
    David and Coco and I got up and went back out the front door. Getting in the limo David said in his wonderfully British way, "I thought that went rather well!"
     

    So effin' cool!  
    (and I'm a huge fan of Zappa too, own about 1/2 of his catalog)

    Huge fan of Pomplamoose here; I somehow missed their mashup of Jamiroquoi (huge fan of them too) and the BeeGees.

    Two versions of one of the best instrumental tunes of all time, Classical Gas.  The first by its originator, Mason Williams, and a very unusual orchestra seating around him.  
    The second by a guy I sorta recognize, a bit of a mashup, but equally stunning.  Both videos in old-timey 3:4.

    ^^ I've not been a big fan of grunge, but AiC were special; Layne Staley could sing!  My favorite was "Would", his vocal melismas were just unmatched.

    This is the original album mix, synced quite nicely to recent concert videos (note the wardrobe changes). One of the finest tracks, from THE finest album, by THE finest recording group of my lifetime. I will never tire of listening to this Magic.

    EweTube somehow assigned me a channel that features trained/classical musicians who (supposedly) have never heard a particular piece of modern music, they watch it, and comment.  Some of the videos are, well, dull, but this one was kinda fun.  This guy (supposedly) had never heard any Zappa, and watched a Live/Edited video of Frank's "Inca Roads", featuring some bizarre claymation by some California Stoner (I have that whole video, on VHS!).  

    This video was published in 1975, as was the original performance, which was drop-jaw stunning.  Enjoy!

    Fun "blast from the past".  Musician magazine was still publishing in those days, so I knew this story, but it was fun to watch/listen to this refresher.  Ed Sheeran just recently won a bullsh*t copyright lawsuit, saying that certain chord progressions were not "ownable", and he was 100% correct.  It's interesting to note, here though, that there is no other song using this chord progression.  Fully unique (not to mention the storyline, guitar riff, and guitar tone!)

    @HeavyG - Thank you for that. Have heard the instrument playing traditional Japanese music but this was an outstanding display of talent.
