Title: Rock n Roll
Post by: mikenchico on June 14, 2009, 10:39 PM
After watching the PBS show on Neil Young I went looking to find the Saturday Night Live version of Rockin' in the Free World, a memorable performance. Not on You Tube though, but a lot of great Neil stuff ... which lead into most of the performances off the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary celebration. One of the best off that was Eddie Vedder's rendition of Masters of War (http://"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8GHBk_HSXg"). So of course that led into a few versions of Pearl Jam covering Rockin' in the Free World. Not too bad, and after a couple of those up pops one of Pearl Jam with Neil Young doing it. Guess he needed to show them how to do it right ... well I've seen Neil rip the strings off his guitar at the end of that song but with Pearl Jam he got them so wound up they destroyed the stage & their instruments.

This is ROCK

Here's the SNL video. Freakin' Awesome.

Interesting coincidence. I'm working late and just took a break to put on some music and surf the web a bit. I put on Neil Young's latest,  Living With War, then opened up GWTW and here you are.  :)

I'm a huge Neil fan. Living with War isn't my favorite, but it has it's charms. What an old coot!

BobFest, that 30th anniversary show, is one of my all time favorite live albums, and I recently got the whole show with a bunch of bonus footage on two DVDs. Turns out Bob Dylan collectors are a lot like kite people. Very generous.  :)

The Vedder performance is tops. Man does he look young! On the bonus footage he can be seen at the rehearsals hunkered down watching with something like biblical awe as Neil, Bob Dyaln, Eric Clapton, George Harrison,  Tom Petty, Roger McGuinn, etc. Goof off and run through some tunes.

After that show Neil toured with Booker T & the MGs (the house band for the event) and I hear the shows were amazing.

As for something new...

Well,  Ani is obscure enough to be new to most people.

Ani DiFranco Shameless (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vjizt4Ixt6E#lq-lq2-hq)

Ani Difranco is my favorite musician by far. This song is kinda odd and raunchy, but a classic.



This one is a bit more palatable for some. Doesn't fit in a rock & roll thread... Really old video, but great performance.

My daughter attempts to keep me "up to date".

Her latest contribution (previously VAST and Muse), is at this link below.

MGMT "Kids" Video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIEOZCcaXzE#lq-lq2-hq)

It's got over 16 Megahits. I really like it. It's a hint of the 60s with the current house/party feel to it. It's basically 2 guys musically, but they are quite into the art aspect of all their videos.

I was never a Neil Young fan, but, one thing I can say is that he still can
make an axe scream, and hang with todays rockers, no problem.
That was a very cool video.

Neil Young?  "Like A Hurricane" for purely sentimental reasons. 

For guitar work, I would give a lot to hear this live again.... headphones just don't do the same job of raising the hairs.

Listening to this late at night on two-lane backroads will get you cited when you start realizing that are you no longer in control of the gearshift or the right pedal.  :-\

Speaking of classics, Alvin Lee is a classic.

ALVIN LEE - TEN YEARS AFTER / WOODSTOCK 1969 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNPX-9QXgGM#ws-lq-lq2-hq)

And almost 40 yrs. later

Alvin Lee - Slow Blues In C (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdltHgMMrqc#lq-hq)

He still rocks.
