A little oldies rock and roll for a Saturday. The incomparable guitar legend Jimi Hendrix with Voodoo Child (Slight Return).
This 40 year old song has some very timely relevance to what we are going through in the world right now. Sometimes music speaks volumes and expresses the angst that people are feeling right now. There is a glimmer of hope though.
Introducing Sonic Saturday. I am going to post some music videos on Saturday that are relevant to what’s going on today and come from my point of view.
Too Much Time On My Hands is a classic track from the classic rock group Styx. When you think about it we all have more time on our hands these days and you know there’s nothing wrong with that.
Something tongue and cheek for the times in which we live these days. Not meant to make light of the situation. Needs more cowbell though.
Neal Peart who was one of the greatest drummers ever to pick up sticks passed away on January 10, 2020. Peart along with Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson made up the legendary Canadian rock band Rush. Peart’s play is other-worldly. His drums are silent and he will be very much missed. Rock on with the Saints good sir.
I wanted to post some Bee Gees on my blog for the fun of it and because they are friggin awesome!
Today begins Chattanooga, Tennessee’s Riverbend Festival which is a week long music and community festival. Tomorrow Heart featuring Ann and Nancy Wilson grace the Coca Cola Stage to rock out on their classic hits from the 1970’s and 1980’s. Here is their 1977 hit Barracuda. I will be sharing more about Riverbend throughout the week.
