overcoming average(?)

because it’s something the world just needs less of

turning point of musical history as we know it? yes.

with one comment

anyone catch live earth last saturday? it was filled with some very inspired performances from some of the world’s top artists. the foo fighters had one of the best of the day. if you’re into bon jovi, i guess they did ok. james blunt covered (butchered) cat stevens’ hit song “wild world,” who i imagined to be highly embarassed by that fact when actual cat stevens played his hit song “wild world” later that day. john mayer had a great set and even covered marvin gaye’s soul classic “what’s goin’ on.” [what’s that fact checker? oh, i’ll fix it.] john mayer had a great set which included his song “waiting on the world to change.” the beastie boys were amazing. unfortunately, i didn’t see the police though. all in all, there were some great musical moments and from what i hear awareness was raised. i don’t really know how you measure that, but it apparently happened. the most amazingly inspiring and groundbreaking moment that will come to define the next generation of music happened when a band came out of retirement that day though.

the band is spinal tap.

this is their legacy.
