Behind Blue Eyes.

Dreams Fade with age. And the struggle to reach an end begins.  This song followed me all through my life. Behind Blue Eyes, originally performed by The Who. This is classic rock and roll modified, and performed by Limp Bizkit for todays No deposit, No refund generation. You see, there is a whole group of people out there who have decided if you’re not a member of their group, you are to be marginalized. It becomes acceptable to criticize, gossip, and look past other people. Some people feel you have to be accepted in groups to have self-worth. Others learn to cope alone. If you know how to be alone and are used to it, sometimes it’s not such a bad thing.

But then the rumor and gossip starts. They’re this,  they’re that. No, not really. They’ve just learned acceptance carries no real value. We’ve all been there, alone. And it’s not such a bad thing. You can have your own opinion, not be measured and judged by others.  And most importantly, you don’t  have to sweat losing those you care about but who don’t care about you. So, I hope you enjoy the music and the lyrics.

George Harrison – “Wah – Wah” Have Faith!

The secret to enjoying our posts is to start the video first, lower on this page,  then read the content as the music plays.

GEORGE HARRISON Wah Wah

The seamingly quite Beatle who waited his turn. And boy could George Harrison turn! Many say his Album, “All Things Must Past” was the best album from any and all Beatles. I know, I love his stuff. George Harrison, the Beatle who rescued a people.

BEFORE ALL THE BIG BENEFIT CONCERTS

In August 1971, 2 concerts . Before all the big scale live concert benefits, We Are The World, Crossroads, Live Aid and Farm Aid, I remember, “The Concert For Bangladesh.” The companion album and the documentary told the story how George Harrison and Ravi Shankar launched an economic rescue mission gathering as many Rock and Roll greats as they could, including, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Leon Russell, and of course Ringo Starr, And. building upon the world’s understanding of peace love and compassion to a point that everyone wanted to help those starving abroad.  The songs from his album played a central role in that great relief effort. George Harrison brought the message, the idea of one God to us all with his music. And to this day belief in that concept, that when people are in trouble, there is but one God. And that God is all that stands between the human race and certain doom. Call him Lord, God, Jesus, Muhammad,  Rama,  Buddha, or what ever works for you it is in our anchored faith we all shall prevail.  If there is a heaven, one of the great things about going there will be meeting George Harrison directly and knowing of his accomplishments here on Earth.

“What happened is now history: it was one of the most moving and intense musical experiences of the century”.

– Ravi Shankar, 2005

ERIC CLAPTON Live at Budokan, Tokyo, 2001 (Full Concert)

Just can’t say enough about Eric Clapton. But this was most outstanding. If you only see one Eric Clapton concert, you need to make it this one. And I warn you, it is long. See, that is the trouble today. People now have the attention span of a flea.

“But”, they say, “say, I’m so busy” as their excuse for letting the best in life pass them right on by. They flip the onus to you, saying mean shit like, “well, at least I have a life” ! And …cut to smirk. Well, it is a known fact” all good things come to those who wait. Patients are a…? If you had  paid good money to see a concert of this caliber, you would say, hey, what a great break in the action, and bonus, you’d witness a true great perform at his absolute zenith. So,  I say once more, miss this and I feel really bad, for you. But, if you use some form of earphones, put down your smartphone and just go with the flow, the same feeling you might get from a great movie, a classic book you will experience here. By the way, he ends this with a classic Cream tune, and another tune that will have you feeling like a kid again. Can you guess what that might be? No? Well, get a life, and watch this!

The Rolling Stones – Let It Bleed – Live OFFICIAL

My favorite band of all time. These guys took bad ass to a higher level. Each song they cranked out was and will always be a classic. They are totally cross generational. And they meld Rock & Roll and the blues seamlessly into golden silk. If you buy a new car, this is the first band you want streaming of some great speakers at full bore. You need to visit their official website at some point.
