Ringo. No, not Ringo Star. Although there is a star above the name Ringo. https://youtu.be/Q-rsTAD0B78

Thanks for the Clapton. He still plays some of the local pubs here. As I’m UK, and it is after midnight, one of the sweetest tunes ever.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen

What Makes This Song Great?

Guitarist Brian May sits down with music producer Rick Beato for this entertaining and informative breakdown of Queen's most famous song.

Although Queen is known to block a lot of YouTube content that features its music, in the case of Rick Beato, it's done the opposite, actually supplying him with the 24-track master recordings. Smart move.

Musicians will love this, and even though it's a little bit geeky, I think many non-musicians will as well.Hearing the layered vocals—isolated from the music—is a revelation, as are the myriad details supplied by Brian May.

No. Wait!

Music doesn't get much better than STEELY DAN.

Gotta love Walter Becker's indifference to the lip-synching. Reminds me of the time Phil Lesh played a broom when they wouldn't let him play for real.

Don't know the exact date, but according to this thread at formus.stevehoffman.tv, it was sometime in '66 or '67.

You know what they say: Pics or it ain't real. But, yeah, Hoffman does have a snapshot!

There must be something about bass players and lip-synching.They just won't get with the program.

Here is a link to Jack Casady performing with Jefferson Airplane on American Bandstand.The dude's got his cords all wrapped around the neck of his bass guitar! The message seems to be: I'm not plugged in!

Equally entertaining is the reply Paul Kantner gives to this question from Dick Clark:

DC: Older people worry. They see the way you're dressed. They hear your music.They don't understand. Do parents have anything to worry about?

PK: Ah... I think so...

Speaking of bassists… get a load of poor Ollie (Rammstein’s bassist) looking so dejected.

Backstory is that at a concert in Vienna, the power went out citywide, right in the middle of the concert, yet. So while the emergency lights were still on, the band decided to keep playing, and did an acoustic version of “Ohne Dich”.

That's a lovely tune, even when stripped down. It's a descending minor key pattern (i-v-iv-III-v) that's both melancholy and soothing at the same time.

But you're right about Ollie. The poor guy's got nuthin' to do.

I was at the Fillmore one time in '90s when the same thing happened. Fortunately, it was late in the evening, so we didn't miss too much of the regular show. After the power went out, Steve Miller finished up on acoustic, amplified through a megaphone!

BTW: You may be thinking, why pay good money to see the Steve Miller Band?!!  Well, I was thinking that, too. Turns out I won the tickets, so what the heck.

I had a good time.

Hmm, haven’t heard that in ages. CI seems to have a sort of Orbison vibe… Kewl song.

Haven’t heard TD in quite a while, too. Love the cover of LOART, especially watching the blinkenlichten at the upper-right. LOL

I’ll be very disappointed if my friend Steve’s song didn’t make the list….it’s very …uh… funky.

“…the 500 best songs of all time.”???

ALL time?

there are ancient chants which should be on that list
for they were the best then and now in that realm.
