I agree..I think that has to be one of his best videos, and in my opinion he performs it far better than NIN. :-)

I always say "that's his best song," but in honestly I say that about 80% of his songs. :-)

Aye it's hard to pick a particular one out from such a great musician isn't it? His version of that song though seems particularly poignant because it was his final one.

Whilst we're on the subject of great country artists, here's another of my favourites. Check out the dude on the guitar in this. 8)

Anyone here ever heard of Canon Rock? From Wikipedia:

"Canon Rock" is a neo-classical metal arrangement of Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D major by the Taiwanese musician and composer Jerry Chang


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_Rock_(music)

Back in 2006, a young musician known as "MattRach" made a video with his early cover version of Chang's work. I think MattRach was only about 15 or so when he made this video and since then it has had 16,377,693 views on Youtube.

Clapton? Who's he ...

Nice, the influence of Steve Vai right down to the Ibanez JEM is clearly to blame for inspiring this rising young star. I'm digging this original, has potential...

With that, allow me to introduce my future ex-wife...

Hi all.

just thought i would post a few videos of my dad "Ched" mainly on lead guitar and also other instruments including the accordian and ukelele.
hes not famous (apart from my city) although hes missed out on various opportunities. but i promise you hes as good as if not better than a lot of famous guitarists. apologies to the metal fans as he hates shredding etc! lol.

but anyway, heres a few vids of him playing in some of his various bands and playing various styles such as rock and roll, skiffle and improvised style, and also playing in a memorial gig for his late friend Mick Ronson in their original band The Rats, i would appreciate it if you guys would take the time to watch even though hes not famous like the people in this list.

Good stuff Rich, love this one…



That’s going on my list of favorite Black Sabbath covers, the accordion adds a nice touch.

Enjoyed this Cream cover too…



Thanks for sharing! Sounds like your Dad is a pretty cool guy.

Some good stuff there from your Dad and his band Rich. I thought the singer there sounds very much like Jack Bruce in that Cream cover. :)

Did anyone here ever listen to the John Peel Show before he sadly passed away a few years ago? This was one of his all-time favourite songs. In fact it practically became his signature tune.

This next band I'm about to post also did some sessions on the Peel show back in the day.

Chris Payne, the bass player with The Members has been a close friend of mine for getting on forty years now. Anyway, they have a new video out "Midlife Crisis" and I just got it sent to me in my e-mail. JC (the main man in the video) would like it spread far and wide. There's a one minute lead-in then the muzak starts ...

(EDIT) I'm not sure where he got that coat from though; looks like he might have picked it up for five quid in an Oxfam shop somewhere ... :shock:

Some great videos here! My own contribution: one from Joe Satriani, two from David T. Chastain, and one from Steve Stevens, Billy Idol's old guitarist. I've always preferred instrumental compilations, and all three of these gents specialize in not just instrumentals, but instrumentals featuring my favorite musical instrument. Chastain is admittedly more obscure than Senor Satriani, having never achieved the exposure or mass-appeal that fellow has enjoyed, but his playing is quite intense and more deeply influenced by fusion. I would say both are progressive metal guitarists, and such playing in the metal genre is what appeals to me the most. Steve Stevens may be an unknown quantity to most, as he was typically overshadowed by Billy Idol. His guitar playing, however, is worthy of note.

My favorite song by The Who.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnHLgxKUsEA

Eminence Front

The sun shines, and people forget.
The spray flies as the speedboat glides...
And people forget.
Forget they're hiding.
The girls smile, and people forget
The snow packs as the skier tracks...
And people forget.
Forget they're hiding.

Behind an eminence front...
Eminence front - It's a put on.
Come on join the party
Dress to kill
Won't you come and join the party
Dress to kill.

The drinks flow, people forget.
That big wheel spins, the hair thins...
People forget.
Forget they're hiding.
The news slows, people forget.
The shares crash, hopes are dashed...
People forget.
Forget they're hiding.

Behind an eminence front...
Eminence front - it's a put on
Come on join the party
Dress to
Come on join the party
Dress to
Come on join the party
Dress to
Come on join the party
Dress to kill
Dress yourself, dressed to kill.
