The Rolling Stones

This is the Rolling Stones in 1964.  This is a long clip.  "It's All Over Now" around the middle of the clip is mesmerising.  I was 8 in 1964 and looking back at this and thinking about these times I realise how different they must have seemed at the time and how the  "lock up your daughters thing" came about.

Jakob Dylan

Daddy is a hard act to follow but he's doing fine!

Alison Krauss and Robert Plant

My favourite song from Raising Sand.

Gram Parsons

I know the stuff about how influential he was and all that but the reason I love this song is because of these lyrics - "And the gun that's hanging on the kitchen wall, dear, is like the roadsign pointing straight to Satan's cage".
