They make this look so easy, yet I'm sure they've spent hundreds of hours practicing over and over.   "Nothing Else Matters" - Oona BROWN & Gage BROWN skate to @Metallica & @Marlisa

I've seen the old spaghetti Westerns but never a Symphony playing these songs

A few more treasures from the resident forum Bonaholic.

I had recently had the privilege of seeing Joe B live and it was -- bar none -- the best live music gig I've ever attended.

This guy is the real deal.

Enjoy!

 

This one is from London last year:

Blast from the past and a bit of an acquired taste (the original *is* long)....

Aside from being the soundtrack to very famous movie most of us boomers will remember, apparently, this album launched the music mogul career of Richard Branson (no other label would take the risk of signing the artist).

Tubular Bells was the first vinyl LP I purchased, for $7.29. That was a lot of cash for music back then. I was barely a teen back then and listening to great music, thanks to my older brother and sisters.

Oldfield started working on Tubular Bells at age 18 and released it just after his 20th B-Day. Amazing.

Seeing the movie in the theater, back in days before Netflix, was a mind-blowing experience, to be sure.

 

One scary film and one groovy soundtrack!

A couple of my favorite tracks off the latest Pearl Jam album.

I don't love all their stuff, and I don't love everything on this record (it's not their best), but you might enjoy these 2 tracks:
