Possible fun for the kids.
"Hetfield says that in the Bay Area, ‘there was an elitist attitude there – that if you weren’t their way politically, their way environmentally, all of that, that you were looked down upon.’"
Includes audio of the long version of "Bluebird," which I hadn't heard before (and won't listen to again). And I disagree that "Change Partners" is "corny and unappealing". But I agree with this:
He was the driving force behind three of the best (non-Beatles) songs of the 1960s/early 1970s: Bluebird, Wooden Ships, and Suite: Judy Blue Eyes; in the process he anchored two of the major super-groups of that era. “For What It’s Worth” is one of the most recognizable and oft-used iconic songs of the 1960s. “Helplessly Hoping” is good too.
As noted here recently, I was glad to learn that there's a label for the modern music I most like--other than "I know it when I hear it"--"heartland rock". I invited my family to submit their labels.
My older daughter said her tastes accord roughly with "indie folk".
My younger daughter said hers accord pretty well with "Modern Songs That Sound Like the 1980s".
My wife hasn't submitted a label yet, but she probably doesn't need to. "Van and Bruce (and maybe CSN)" will probably do.
A beautiful 5.5 minutes with Beethoven's Ninth.
(BTW, whatever happened to flashmobs?)
As you would expect--or at least as I would expect--for a few states, "famous" is a stretch. "Rustic Overtones"? "Silkworm"? "The Spill Canvas"?
Everybody seemed to having a really good time.
A lot bad ones here. Just in the first couple of dozen are "Dancing Queen," "Love Shack," and "Do They Know It's Christmas".
Tom Petty and his friends doing what they do.
(Somebody should write--if it hasn't already been written--an article on the history and application of the "a little bit softer now" break in rock music. An example starts at 1:58 of the above video.)
The Stones come full circle back to their roots. And it sounds like Keith has made up--again--with Mick.
