Friday video - Jimi Hendrix

Dude caught his guitar on fire.  The greatest guitarist of our generation.  Is there really anything else left to say?

Thursday video - The Who

Let's keep with the British Invasion (especially since I'm writing this last Tuesday evening, post-dating some music posts in the event my son has-been-already or soon-will-be-born).

Love, love, love the Who.  While I really like their stuff around the Tommy- and Who's Next-era, what I consider the pantheon of their catalog, the band's stuff before and after is also great.  And, their live performances are beyond reproach:

Wednesday video - The Beatles

Here's one that's quick and easy.

There are literally 50 Beatles songs that are mathematically quantifiable as Freaking Awesome, so I can't really go wrong here.  The only drawback about Beatles songs is that the band effectively stopped touring after 1966, so there's really not much out there in the public domain of them playing anything from Revolver, St. Pepper, the White Album, Let It Be, or Abbey Road live.  Which is probably 75% of their original catalog.  Still, what is out there is so great.  But you knew that.  Enjoy.

Blogging will be sporadic for the forseeable future... my wife might deliver our son any day now.  We spent all day yesterday at the hospital for a false alarm, but the doctor said that delivery would likely take place this week.  My wife is fine and the baby is fine so no worries there (and, in fact, the baby will be full term this coming Friday).  It is just that he'll be coming 3-4 weeks prior to when we were expecting, so we'll be doing some last-minute scrambling to get everything in order before the birth.

Long story short, if I get some time to breathe, I'll try to post some stuff (and maybe try to post-date some music posts tonight to pop up later in the week), but don't be surprised if a week goes by without a current post.
