Happy Birthday Neil Young

Neil Young's birthday is today! Choosing songs to celebrate should be due to the 74 year old's variety of music!

                                          Well he is the "Old Man" now...


Buffalo Springfield 

"Mr. Soul"


Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young "Southern Man"


Neil Young "Cinnamon Girl"


I think a nice four song is a good way to celebrate. He has a ton of great songs so just a taste from here and there.

Rocktober Music Festival: Happy Birthday Peter Green

Happy birthday to Peter Green! If the name isn't familiar to you I am sure you have heard of his old band Fleetwood Mac. The Mac was different log ago, before the girls, before Lindsey Buckingham, and I suppose the really big hits too.

                                                 Santana liked "Black Magic Woman"


"Got a Good Mind to Give Up Living"


He did other things besides Fleetwood Mac.

"Albatross"


"Fool No More"


but he did cool things with Fleetwood Mac

"Oh Well"



Well I think that is a good set for a blues rock birthday!

R.I.P. Paul Barrere



"Let it Roll" by Little Feat. Sad news from Little Feat tonight guitarist Paul Barrere has passed away. You can read the band's statement here.



                                                "Lost in the Sound" with Roger Cole


"If The Phone Don't Ring" Paul Barrere



Having seen this band at their peak of resurgence with my Mom on a New Year's Eve show, to interviewing and meeting one of the co-founders of Little Feat I have a connection to this band. Obviously I am a fan too. 

Little Feat "Feats Don't Fail Me Know"  a different year but the same venue I went to with my mom.


"All That You Dream"

Vintage Little Feat from 1977


May he R.I.P on this sad night.
