    And Now For Something Completely Different

    I ask everyone here to use Youtube or whatever other music video website you know and introduce us to bands that we may not be very familiar with. Bands that you really enjoyed but may have flown under the radar for some of us.

    I think this will be a great way to hear and see some stuff that we might never have given a shot. I think I have youtube'd a couple of Enuff z'Nuff clips here. And I have a few more to share. So everyone, teach me something new.

    I will start with Badlands. They were a basic blues based Hard Rock band with exceptional talent. They consisted of Jake E. Lee (Ozzy), Ray Gillen (Sabbath), 
    Eric Singer (Sabbath & KISS), and Greg Chaisson. They should have been something special, but in fighting almost from the beginning halted this bands progress.

    This guy is really good. It's kind of a long video, but give it a chance...the last couple minutes really smoke.

    Made me rethink what is possible on acoustic guitar. He does lots of great covers too.

    OK. I went hiking in the Richardson Mountains in Canada near the Arctic Circle a few summers ago. I believe this artist, Leanne Goose, is the one I heard while up there. I think she might be a big shot Native Indian Canadian singer.

    Remember, you asked for it Jessey.

    Here's another guy I've been following for years. This guy is a MONSTER. You will recognize the songs.

    with his wife Patti covering Jimi:

    more...who needs a band when you can play all the parts at once:

    and some pure jazz/blues brilliance (a Wes Montgomery staple)

    I learned his version of Michael Jackson's Man In The Mirror. I took me a month, with the sheet music.

    jessey, you seem like an honorable guy, I will watch your videos if you watch mine.  Here is one called 'It's All Over' by a Canadian band called the Headstones.  The lead singer is a guy named Hugh Dillon who is a former heroin addict and besides his music career, is a talented actor.  He has a great voice, sometimes in the Jim Morrison range, sometimes in the Alice Cooper range.  He writes some of the best lyrics-smart/funny/angry.  Musically the band has a nice hard rock edge with a little of that Jason & The Scorchers psychobilly-type sound.

    That's what I mean - I dig sh*t like this. Even if the music isn't new, it is new to me. Good deal Hfxsoxnut.

    Let's go guys - I am sure there is more music out there.

    Now as far as that honorable thing goes - maybe part of me, probably the Sicilan in me. But the other part of me is not so nice. But thanks for the kind words. I really do enjoy chatting on this forum.

    jessey, I did watch the Badlands video, I'm going to try to watch a lot of the videos people put up here and comment on them at some point.  Here's a recent tune by another Canadian band, Cocaine Cowgirl by Matt Mays and El Torpedo.  This one is special for me because Matt grew up about fifteen minutes from me in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.  

    I think this is a pretty great song, it's country rock in the Byrds/Tom Petty vein...the guitar line that drives the song is familiar and fresh at the same time.

    My youtube bookmarks are mostly solo/duets rather than full bands. Here are a couple of favorites:

    Jeff Foucalt doing a John Prine blues tune. (Jeff is playing at Passims next Mon)

    Saw Eilen Jewell open for Graham Parker and instantly became a fan. Hope you enjoy.

    What we really need on this thread is for people to actually watch somebody else's videos.  If anybody watches one of mine I promise I will watch one of theirs.

                Cuba Gooding Sr., the lead singer of The Main Ingredient, is the father of the actor we know today, Cuba Gooding Jr..   On You Tube we can see and hear Sr. perform some of his songs.  Two of the bigger hits are: "Everybody Plays the Fool" and "Just Don't Want To Be Lonely".  To me there is a facial and tone of voice resemblance between father and son.  I know everybody could have a different opinion.  Check it out, if you have the time.

    I have looked at everyone. Afterall, my reputation and integrity are at stake considering this was my idea.

    King Crimson meet the Police -- Andy Summers and Robert Fripp collaborated on a couple discs in the 80s. This is from the first, I Advance Masked (1982). They didn't play this one on MTV, at least not where I lived.

    Some classic King Crimson from 82

    what were you listening to in 82?
