Ah yes, Nirvana Unplugged was also brilliant, if I recall they did that all in one take and killed it, but during rehearsals they sounded like trash. G-man, listen to rock in Rio, it is superb, if you like Maiden in general, you will love it.

Definitely dominating my Christmas rotation this season:

Johnny Mathis
Elvis
Phil Spector
Sufjan Stevens
Stevie Nicks
Frank
Nat King Cole
Carpenters
Bing
Andy Williams
Charlie Brown

The voices of Johnny and Nat particularly still make me melt.

I fully realize most of this list is very old school, but I missed my favorite uncle's funeral and both of my parents turning 80 this year, and with that nostalgia has been on my mind quite a bit of late.

Hoping everyone will be safe and sound this year.

When my parents passed away I kept all of their Christmas vinyl albums, which I loved as a kid and still love to this day. Here is the list of my favorites that I bust out every Christmas season:

Robert Goulet's Wonderful World of Christmas
Perry Como - his version of the Night Before Christmas is my all time favorite
Elvis' Christmas Album - because who doesn't like Blue Christmas
The Harry Simeone Chorale - The Little Drummer Boy album...which has the best version of that song IMO
The Living Strings - The Spirit of Christmas...my all time favorite Christmas album

Yes, I had to Google all of those to know exactly what the titles were but I remember each of them. To me they each are the sounds of Christmas. Happy Holidays everyone!

There are so many good live albums....forgot to mention "Live Sh*" by Metallica (although that is technically a triple live set). I love looking up live concert vids on YouTube, also. You can find some gems:

Last night, the surviving members of Nirvana, the reason i began listening to music as a youth, played a 25min set with Dave Grohls daughter on vocals. Amazing.

To be clear Violet didn't start the set at vocals, but to your point overall this was very cool. My favorite might have been, "In Bloom" with Beck on vocals, although Violet, and "Heart Shaped Box" is hard to beat as well.

So many great memories associated with their music. Think I’ll put the catalog on full shuffle for a week of mourning.

This makes me sad. I’m not a great musical mind but IMO he’s one of the top 5 drummers of my lifetime.

I know Rolling Stone has their "Top 100 Drummers" list and accordingly Neil is in the top 5 on that list. When it comes to bands and the musicians within a band drummers are where my focus always goes. I love hearing the drums in a song. Probably my honest to god first band that drew me to listening to the drums in their songs was Led Zeppelin. That pink 8 track tape my Mom had in her car, Led Zeppelin II, blew my mind when the first song was "Whole Lotta Love".

Now nobody in my family was a Rush fan but we were all rock fans and listened pretty much to rock music on the radio. I remember hearing "Tom Sawyer", "Subdivisions", and "Limelight" on the radio and liked those songs but I wasn't really drawn to find out more about the band Rush. It wasn't until I finally receive the gift of a lifetime when local cable finally picked up MTV and I began to really investigate bands.

For me the ah-ha moment for my liking of Rush was their release "Roll the Bones". Most Rush fans really dislike that album since it was pretty commercial, I love it. "Ghost of a Chance" is my favorite Rush song which puts most Rush fans against me....I don't care. But that album made me really deep dive into Rush and their previous work. Now I am NOT a big Prog Rock guy but I do love all the musicianship within that genre. Rush, Yes, old Genesis, and Kansas are amazing bands for their musicianship and lyric content.

Circling back around to the drummer thing though. John Bonham is remarked by most all rock drummers as their influence. But Neil Peart is usually the second drummer to come out their mouths as an influence in just about every interview I've seen or read about from a drummer. Rolling Stone may have their list but I think most every rock drummer would put Neil Peart a very close second to John Bonham for all time influences of definitely the rock genre but just about every genre.

One last plug about Neil Peart. For you book readers, give Neil's first book "Ghost Rider: Travels of the Healing Road" a read. It chronicles his 55,000 mile motorcycle journey after losing his oldest daughter to a car accident and his first wife to cancer. It is an amazing read on how he dealt with loss, his own mortality, and how he was going to continue to live his life either with or without music in it.

That is the crazy thing about Rush is that Neil was the main songwriter. I remember an rare interview of him where he stated that his lyrics came from whatever style of books he was reading at the time. Reading was his escape while touring constantly over the years and that was his influence on his lyrics.

Juxtapose, "She's Leaving Home" from Sgt. Peppers and, "Helter Skelter" from The Beatles. I can't even.
