Ah, the great Vernon Reid. You know, he said one of his favorite guitar solos was Amos Garrett's on Maria Muldaur's "Midnight at the Oasis"?
I LOLd at the alphabet soup. MLKRFK EIEIO. Hilarious.
m arthur-The wonderful thing about the internet is that when you indulge in some obscure interest, like Vernon Reid, there's always people that will indulge along with you.Ruth Anne- I learned it's hard as hell to sync music and video on off the shelf software. That;s about it.I'm old. I remember MLKRFK. It's a little off-putting to see them planted out in the field like a sort of political scarecrow now. It seems strange to claim the essence of other people.
It seems strange to claim the essence of other people.As a Republican, it's just as off-putting when the GOP does it with Reagan.I'm not a big Van Halen-esque, guitar-shredding fan, but I love that song. (Did you know it's on Guitar Hero III? My kids are teaching me to push buttons in the correct order so I can pretend to play guitar.) I've thought for a while it's the prefect soundtrack for Obama! The Musical! It really sums him up nicely. I hear one woman touched the hem of his coat and was cured of political apathy.
Hi Pastor Jeff- My son has guitar hero, but not the latest version, so I didn't know the song had been resurrected already. It's funny to see my son playing a game that substitutes data entry for playing an instrument. I still play music occasionally with friends and ex-bandmembers, and one of my younger guitar player friends can play every song on any guitar hero game, on a real guitar, and at double speed if so desired.
