And, oh yeah, feel free to pet the dogs – they love that. Although, I’d be up for playing with quite a lot of people. They are musicians with charitable hearts, a sense of civic duty, and the ability to throw down a good song.
They really ARE the best band you’ve never heard! I’m talking about the progressive rock band YES! This British rock band has been producing music since their debut album “YES” in 1969 and they’re still going strong! They’ve enjoyed Gold and Platinum record success, have sold millions upon millions of records, and are considered one of the best “touring bands” ever. Yet, I dare you to bring up their name at a party, or the next time you’re discussing music with your friends. The typical response – “Who.?” No, not the WHO! The progressive rock band YES – the best band you’ve never heard!
Part of their appeal is the way the bands vocals blend to create a wonderful harmony, demonstrated in songs like Bohemian Rhapsody. And also for their stage presence. Audiences loved Freddie Mercury and the bands’ concerts always sold out.They also collaborated with other artists on duets that became hits later on. One of those collaborations was with singer David Bowie on “Under Pressure”. It was a totally spontaneous event, as he just happened to come into the studio while they were recording.
Well that nightmare scenario is now very much in the past for me and I want to talk about the principles that increased my limits of guitar speed by alot!
2) Robert Plant is one of the most amazing singers and one of the best frontman of all time. For anyone who’s just coming out of a 40 year coma and living in a bubble, Plant is the lead vocalist for the best band ever: Led Zeppelin. Zeppelin reunited to perform two shows in England at the end of 2007. These concerts received rave reviews and left us all dreaming of a U.S. tour. I, personally, have been waiting my entire life to see this band live. So what does Plant do? He comes to Red Rocks last year and plays with Alison Krauss instead of playing with, oh I don’t know, maybe . . . JIMMY PAGE! I’m still smarting from that, and the Grammys brought all of that hurt right back to the fore.
May 31, 1982: “Beatles at the Beeb” radio special airs in the U.S. in 1982 during Memorial Day weekend. For many Americans, this is their first exposure to the BBC recordings. Rip Rense, a writer for the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, had examined the recordings in a multi-part newspaper series that year. (See our story on that here.) The Beatles’ BBC recordings were widely bootlegged. A two-disc set was issued legitimately by EMI in 1994.
The free product doesn’t come without its limitations. Although users will be able to listen to a playlist created for free, they will not be able to just select a song to start listening to. Instead, they will only be able to listen to a playlist by shuffling. Users who upgrade to the paid service are able to listen to any music for free anytime, just like before. This new Spotify methodology opens up the door for users who have been relying on free services like Pandora or iTunes Radio.
