Jimi Hendrix – “Band Of Gypsys Auld Lang Syne 31/12/69 2nd show “

Happy New Year my lovely bloggers. You have made this year, which was truly up and down, a far better one than I thought it could be. This is just the beginning my friends, and I am proud to say you are my friends. On to 2013-Derek

2012 in review, and thank you to all of you who made this happen.-Derek

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 5,100 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 9 years to get that many views.

Black Sabbath-“Paranoid”

Black Sabbath was my introduction to heavy metal many years ago. From that point on I was hooked to the genre.


Gotye-“Eyes Wide Open”

Just a really great song. Another new pop artist that gives me hope for the genre.

The Matrix Soundtrack – “Clubbed To Death”

Just perfect. One of my favorite film scores.


Salif Keita- “Souareba”

My favorite song of this powerful singer. None can match him.


Thomas Lang-“Drum Solo”

The definition of a perfect drummer is Thomas Lang, no doubt in my mind.
