OMG, OMG... Look what else was done in tribute, recently too. A friend just shared... Perfect timing for BB King's 94th Birthday.

This is not BB Blues so much as some celestial brew & interpretation by my favorite child singer and family of musicians. "Different"

Isaac et Nora - The Thrill Is Gone


I think the lyrics are in order, given that this is such a totally different treatment than the blues-guitar-centric BB King version:

The thrill is gone
The thrill is gone away
The thrill is gone baby
The thrill is gone away
You know you done me wrong baby
And you'll be sorry someday
The thrill is gone
It's gone away from me
The thrill is gone baby
The thrill is gone away from me
Although, I'll still live on
But so lonely I'll be
The thrill is gone
It's gone away for good
The thrill is gone baby
It's gone away for good
Someday I know I'll be open armed baby
Just like I know a good man should
You know I'm free, free now baby
I'm free from your spell
Oh I'm free, free, free now
I'm free from your spell
And now that it's all over
All I can do is wish you well

Un plus / One more - music, wonderful live performance from Led Zep with beautiful video and LYRICS - in the video.

Led Zeppelin Rain Song with Lyrics


From the intro - en francais:
Jai créer Led Zeppelin non un groupe de musique mais une expérience ésotérique pour apaiser lâme, en effet dans ce vidéo vous sentirez un bien être intérieur surtout dans les moments difficile, une libération de la peine.

Translation (Jimmy Page's words): "I created Led Zeppelin not as a music band but as an esoteric experience to calm the soul." 'Indeed in this video you will feel a good inner being especially in difficult moments, a release of the pain. (Intro)

Chelsea Guitars

At the Hotel Chelsea

I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
You were famous, your heart was a legend
You told me again you preferred handsome men
But for me you would make an exception
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
Who are oppressed by the figures of beauty
You fixed yourself, you said, "Well never mind,
We are ugly but we have the music"

Chelsea Hotel: Leonard Cohen

From a conversation about great female vocalists.
One of my favorite albums is from 1973, Stevie Nicks here. (Hopefully the link will lead to the last 3 songs).

Buckingham Nicks


Beautiful songs, beautiful sound, in its day, and now. Best on big speakers or w/headphones. Sweet.

Yes, it is, "life is so complicated". It's a ...

Complicated Life


Complicated Life (Kinks) - LYRICS

Well I woke this morning with a pain in my neck,
A pain in my heart and a pain in my chest,
I went to the good doctor and the good doctor said,
You gotta slow down your life or you're gonna be dead,
Cut out the struggle and strife,
It only complicates your life.
Well I cut down women I cut out booze,
I stopped ironing my shirts, cleaning my shoes,
I stopped going to work, reading the news,
I'm sitting twiddling my thumbs 'cause I got nothing to do,
Minimal exercise,
To help un-complicate my life,
Gotta stand and face it life is so complicated,
La di dah di dahdah, la di dah di dah dah,
Got to get away from the complicated life son,
Life is overrated, life is complicated,
Must alleviate this, complicated life.
Like old Mother Hubbard
I got nothin' in the cupboard,
Got no dinner and I got no supper,
Holes in my shoes I got holes in my socks,
I can't go to work 'cause I can't get a job,
The bills are rising sky high,
It's such a complicated life,
Gotta stand and face it,
Life is so complicated.

Reminded that "we are all made of stars", I wish Good night/weekend/morning! Remember:

Everybody's A Star (Star Maker)


The Kinks, from their ground-breaking rock/life "Soap Opera" album/show - One of the first (great) 'rock operas' too.

Lyrics:
I am a creator
Inventor and innovator
I observe the people
The ordinary people
No matter what your occupation is
Everybody's in showbiz
'Cos I'm a Star (gonna make you a star)
And I can make you a Star (gonna make you a star)
I believe that everybody's a celebrity
And we've all got personality
And individuality
We all read lines
And we all act a part
We all need a script
And an audience to play to
No matter what you do
Or who you are
Everybody's a star

I'm the magic maker
I'm the image maker
I'm the interior decorator

I can take any man
I see standing in the road
And put rouge on his cheeks
And put some powder on his nose
I'll teach him how to act
I'll remould and reshape him
I'll put him in a stage suit
And I'll teach him how to pose
I can turn the most ordinary man in the world into a star
I'm a starmaker (gonna make you a star)
Yes, I'm gonna make you a star (gonna make you a star)
No matter how dull or simple you are
Everybody's a star

Here's a treat for anyone who knows this from a previous life, or for anyone about to hear it for the first time. This is the song I started looking for before landing on another I still can't get out of my head. This song will do it, I'm pretty sure... Once burnt in my daily memory, still a good one.

Jerry Garcia's 'Tiger' Guitar


Here's one more souvenir from Play it Loud at New York's Met Museum... still on exhibit until end of September.

This here is the guitar used on the last song, last concert, by the Grateful Dead (with Jerry Garcia).

For DeadHeads &/or guitar aficionados, here's a link to more on that concert and this guitar, with music also, including him playing this guitar on that last song ("Box of Rain"). Guitar sounds great, although one of the vocal mics did not.... :(

Pow! Reminder of the Power of Love / to love.
It's such a pity so many parts of the world are (still) consumed with hate. :(
"Floatation is groovy" - Jimi Hendrix

I'm thinking this is the best there ever was of Hendrix, coming off of Woodstock, with his own dream band - at the Fillmore.
New Year's Eve 1970

The whole concert is amazing. If YouTube algorithm gods want to move you through the set - "Message of Love" is next - do it! :))

Power to Love - Jimi Hendrix and Band of Gypsies - New Year's Eve Concert - Fillmore East


Live Hendrix, many New Year's Eves ago, many wars ago, many hate crimes ago. "Find your self first", he sings, and then the love.

Here is an awfully strange pairing, by coincidence....

The song is a favorite (powerful & painful) by the Great Neil Young.

Cortez the Killer - Neil Young & Crazy Horse


While this was open on one tab, in today's news I've now seen this!
Neil Young was on the hit list of the chemical poisoners Monsanto.
He'd probably be happy about that, IMHO

Fishing for Bass

(Sorry about that!) This instrument is a Portuguese Rajão from the late 19th century, made from wood and gut.

According to the (non-rock) museum exhibit sign, "This folk instrument from the ... island of Madeira typically had five strings, but this example has only four.... The instrument was popular with Portuguese sailors, who took it around world [and]introduced the rajão to native Hawaiians... [It]inspired the creation of the ukulele.

Dazed and Confused - Jimmy Page and his "Dragon" Guitar

Winner (guessed whose this was): @tomgrz :))

This is the Telecaster (1959; hand-painted by Jimmy Page, 1967)
Catalog Notes: Ash body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, two single-coil pickups.

"Jimmy Page received this guitar from Jeff Beck and used it for his 1967 work with the Yardbirds, playing it with a violin bow on experimental live versions of 'Dazed and Confused'. After the Yardbirds disbanded, he used it to record all of Led Zeppelin (1968)"

Here's a classic concert clip where you can see & hear it in use:

Rock History Trivia Quiz, Part 1


So... anyone want to test your knowledge of 60's-80's rock history, particularly the instruments used by the biggest names in rock?

I took quite a few photos of the immense collection at The Met's current exhibit, #playitloud - Play it loud! I'll post a few as I sift through them, from Chuck Berry to Beatles and Cream, Rolling Stones, and The Who, Hendrix, and Prince. Lady Gaga too.

I'll post some music pairings before long, featuring music hits with the given guitar or sitar or whatever. Warmup.

Test item was: Roots Rhodes, drums and mic (impossible; I just liked the image). Enjoy. If you want to follow/join, the hashtag may help come back to this. #playitloud First one might be easy. (I can give hints if not...)

Asaf Avidan - Small Change Girl


Live Session Le Mouv'

She can make the birds and bees
get down on their little knees
she can whisper to the breeze
and make her tear the bark off trees

She can make a fog horn ring
she can make the mountains swing
she will make you clip your wing
she can teach your tears to sing

She's just a small change girl X4
but she's a world to me

She can turn her flesh to steel
but she can't get her scars to heal
she can make you think she's real
she can make a diamond peel

she can get your bed to shrink
she can get your ears to blink
she can get you eyes to think
and she can get a horse to drink

She's just a small change girl X4
but she's a world to me

Just for Kinks Lovers

I just found this, after recalling some Kinks greatness - and mentioning this to @tomgrz

This is the worst audio recording you'll ever hear but the best performance of this song I've ever heard.
(And I was in the sound/music biz for a bit ) But this was their first tour showcasing this new song from their just-released album (about video games) and they were now in a favorite place, in an intimate concert hall, Beacon Theater, NYC, March 15, 1987.

42 #)[email protected]'n years! Well, this is the first time seeing/listening since I made the video from cassette tape and some photos I took of the marquis that night and of the band on stage. I expected nothing though I did really hope for a clean(er) Waterloo Sunset or Celluloid Hero. That's what the audience here was screaming out for too, I can bear witness.
