    There's a fun music video at this link, especially if you like music... and if you like pets... and if you like beer.

    I think that covers everyone here.

    A lot of people may think Prince is just a singer with "character" and don't realize what a fantastic guitar player he is, so check out this link to see him with Tom Petty and other stars, especially the last half.

    Tommy Emmanuel is a four-time winner of Australia's Best Guitarist award, best known for his complex fingerpicking style, energetic performances and the use of percussive effects on the guitar. In the May 2008 and 2010 issues of Guitar Player Magazine, he was named as "Best Acoustic Guitarist" in their readers' poll.

    This cat was BRILLIANT! And just a little before my time, but I recall hearing him when I was a kid, and playing his music on the radio later.

    Interesting camera work. I haven't seen some of those moves until they starting mounting camera on booms.

    The first rock tune that grabbed my attention was
    "Wild Thing" from the Trogs .
    The appeal of the tune continues as strong as ever.

    I guess the first rock tune that grabbed me was Hound Dog by Elvis. A friend got a 45 of it, we probably played it 50 times one afternoon just going crazy over it, our parents clucked over how horrible it was, they could not believe civilization had sunk so low. The drum staccato was like a machine gun. The song was an invitation to youthful rebellion against every standard of the times, revolutionary, for us the first crack that grew to the generation gap.

    So although I truly loathe rap and hip hop and what is called R & B (it isn't), I have talked to enough people who sincerely like it that I won't condemn it. I wish recording technology when I was a kid could have been even half as good as it is now. I think of hits like Earth Angel recorded on a reel to reel in the basement of a church (at least thats the story one DJ told). I think about talent scouts scouring the street corners of New York on hot summer nights hunting for the next Frankie Lymon or the next Penguins just singing on some street corner. I think about an astoundingly talented kid like Ritchie Valens snuffed out so long before his immense talent had even begun to flower. How nice it would be if their music had been recorded as well as, well, Take Yo Panties Off was.

    Count me in as a new Slim fan, he's a hoot! Lord knows what else he could do. Just the kind of guy you'd like having around and bring to parties.

    Thanx for the turn on!

    Ritchie Valens.
    Actually, it was better in some aspects, re analog and user/inventors re Les Paul. The mics and tube equipment was superb, and the then new disc cutting machines the few top studios like RCA used were so advanced that even they had no idea of the quality in their hands until speaker developement advanced a few years later, they were blown away when they understood.

    Ritchie Valens was a badass, at 16! He still doesn't get his due.

    Things per music started clicking for me when my Elvis loving cousin/babysitter dated Dick Dale at his early '60s heights. Nobody has topped either of them in those genres.

    Bruce Springsteen's keynote speech at SXSW today was astounding and inspirational to anyone whose life has been spent in the unyielding grip of music. NPR streamed the video of it live, and plans to put the audio up on their website later today; I'll try to link to it then (unless someone else does so earlier).

    All Saints - Never ever...
    Great song!

    All Saints were a British/Canadian girl group. Founded in 1993 as All Saints 1.9.7.5, the group consisted of founding members Melanie Blatt and Shaznay Lewis, and sisters Nicole Appleton and Natalie Appleton. They became one of the most successful British pop groups of the 1990s, with nine top ten singles (including five number-ones), two multi-platinum albums, two gold albums and record sales in excess of ten million worldwide.[1]

    All Saints were formed as a trio in 1993 with Blatt, Lewis and Simone Rainford, who released two singles before Rainford's departure in 1995. Natalie and Nicole Appleton joined the group for the production of their debut album, All Saints (1997), which produced three UK number-one singles, including the BRIT Award-winning "Never Ever". Their second album, Saints & Sinners (2000), was also a success and yielded two number-one hits, although the group broke up in 2001. They later reformed for a third album, Studio 1 (2006), but it sold poorly. All Saints were confirmed to have split up for a second time in 2009, and Melanie Blatt has said that the group will never reform.
