Music

"No other pop song has so thoroughly challenged and transformed the commercial laws and artistic conventions of its time, for all time."

Last week was the 50th anniversary of the recording of "Like a Rolling Stone".

(And to think it ranks only second in number of times, of his songs, played by Dylan. Guess what's first.)

"Broadway Casts Stage Airport Sing-off"

People with delayed departures from LaGuardia get an unexpected performance.

"Don't Do It"

"Only one name was good enough: The Band".

"Questions"

Buffalo Springfield. For my money, better than the CSN version.

"Did any group perform at Monterey Pop Festival, Woodstock and Altamont?"

For the elders. See how well you do.

"How Eddie Van Halen Hacks a Guitar"

He currently holds two guitar-related patents.

"You’re Going To Want To Listen To This Acoustic Tabla Cover Of 'Uptown Funk' All Day"

Well, maybe not quite "all day," but it's interesting.

"These 15 Isolated Tracks from Famous Songs Will Blow Your Mind"

I can't say they "blew my mind," but your mileage may vary and they were interesting.

"The Strange Story of Bob Dylan’s Triumphant First Letterman Performance"

Featuring a brief discussion of Dylan's affection for punk and a ringing, rocking performance of "Jokerman". (What the lyrics might mean.)

More good Letterman: "David Letterman retires: His most notable interviews". This is a fine selection including two at the peak of his form, with Cher and Madonna. (How Madonna thought she would be able to mess with Dave, especially in his building with his people, is beyond my meager power to understand.)

"B.B. King’s Greatest Performance"

"The three-song medley at the heart of his masterpiece may be the best 12 minutes of live musical performance ever recorded."

That's a tough statement to agree with given James Brown, Springsteen, Van Morrison, and many others.

But the crowd is really into it.
