Re: Song of the day

Dick Dale, a surf rock legend, performing Miserlou at Fender NAMM 2008 Gala




Dick Dale factoid: Since Dale was left-handed he was initially forced to play a right-handed model, much like Jimi Hendrix would do a few years later. However, he did so without restringing the guitar, leading him to effectively play the guitar upside-down (while Hendrix would restring his guitar) and often plays by reaching over the fretboard rather than wrap his fingers up from underneath. Even after he acquired a proper left-handed guitar, Dale continued to use his reverse stringing.

Re: Song of the day

For those who take the threads so personally.

Is that Mick Jagger singing backup vocals?

Re: Song of the day

In honour of their fantastic gig last night here's Fleet Foxes my band of the day



the highlight of the set was this song - sorry this is the best version I could find on youtube, they were all dodgy home vids

Re: Song of the day

A festive song *Little Drummer Boy* B. Crosby and David Bowie. Bowie and that sexy voice of his.. odd conversation between the pair of them at the start.

Thanks for that. Its starting to get all Christmassy with this one and the You Tube of the Day. Don't hear this one very often. Also, I don't recall having heard the full intro bit before. A very unlikely combination but they work well together.


If you are a fan of David Bowie, I consider this to be one of his best,more recent guest appearances. Pink Floyd's 'Arnold Layne' with David Gilmour. Not at all Christmassy, but great all the same.
