Gary Moore – Still got the blues

0 Gary Moore   Still got the bluesGary Moore died yesterday,6 February 2011 while on holiday in Estepona, Spain. The 58-year-old was found dead in his room at the Kempinski Hotel on the Costa del Sol.His death was confirmed by his former manager Adam Parsons.
Born on April 4 1952 was a musician from Belfast, Northern Ireland, best recognized as a blues rock guitarist and singer.
Moore grew up on Castleview Road opposite Stormont’s Parliment Buildings, off the Upper Newtownards Road in east Belfast and started performing at a young age, having picked up a battered acoustic guitar at the age of eight. Moore got his first good-quality guitar at the age of 14, learning to play the right-handed instrument in the standard way despite being left-handed. He moved to Dublin in 1968 at the age of 16. Moore’s early musical influences were artists such as Albert King, Elvis Presley and The Beatles. Later, having seen Jimi Hendrix and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers in his home town of Belfast, his own style was developing into a blues-rock sound that would be the dominant form of his career.
Moore’s greatest influence in the early days came from guitarist Peter Green, of Fleetwood Mac fame, who was a mentor to Moore when performing in Dublin. Green’s continued influence on Moore was later repaid as a tribute to Green on his 1995 album Blues for Greeny, an album consisting entirely of Green compositions. On this tribute album Moore played Green’s 1959 Les Paul Standard guitar which Green had lent to Moore after leaving Fleetwood Mac. Moore ultimately purchased the guitar, at Green’s request, so that “it would have a good home”.
While less popular in the US, Moore’s work “brought substantial acclaim and commercial success in most other parts of the world — especially in Europe”.Moore throughout his career was recognised as an influence by many notable guitarists including Vivian Campbell, Patrick Rondat,Jake E. Lee,John Norum, Joe Bonamassa, Adrian Smith, Zakk Wylde,Randy Rhoads, John Sykes and Kirk Hammett.
Moore collaborated with a broad range of artists including George Harrison, Trilok Gurtu, Dr. Strangely Strange, Colosseum II, Albert Collins, Jimmy Nail, Mo Foster, Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce, Jim Capaldi, Vicki Brown, Cozy Powell, the Beach Boys, Ozzy Osbourne and Andrew Lloyd Webber on the composer’s Variations album in 1977. He experimented with many musical genres, including rock, jazz, blues, country, electric blues, hard rock and heavy metal.
In a career dating back to the 1960s, Moore played with artists including Phil Lynott and Brian Downey as early as his secondary school days, leading him to membership with the Irish rock band Thin Lizzy on three separate occasions. Moore shared the stage with such blues and rock luminaries as B.B. King, Albert King, Colosseum II and Greg Lake.
After a series of rock records, Moore returned to blues music with Still Got the Blues, with contributions from Albert King, Albert Collins and George Harrison.
Enjoy!

Alela Diane “White As Diamonds” from the album “To Be Still” Out Now

0 Alela Diane White As Diamonds from the album To Be Still Out Now“White As Diamonds” is taken from the album “To Be Still” – download now from iTunes : http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?id=304174853&s=143444

“To Be Still” is the follow-up to Alela Dianes critically-acclaimed 2006 debut The Pirates Gospel which brought the Nevada City, CA-reared musician a passionate following across the Globe especially in europe where Alela has a huge fan base..

Recorded in Nevada City and Portland, Ore., it’s a gorgeous sonic expansion of her sparse debut, featuring pedal steel, violin and rustic percussion, with lyrics tangled up in brambles and foxtails and wind-whipped sea cliffs. From the woozy folk flourishes of opener “Dry Grass & Shadows,” to the heart-shattering final track, “Lady Divine
“It began in Portland, OR and was finished in scatters between tours at my dad’s home studio in Nevada City, CA,” Alela says. “I wanted to record this collection of songs using arrangements which would represent them in their finest form. These songs requested more instrumental filigree than those on The Pirate’s Gospel. It was challenging to delicately yet purposefully incorporate instrumentation into songs that I was so used to singing by myself. I was determined to make it work, because I wanted percussion! I wanted to hear the lonesome bow of the violin! I heard many harmonies in my head, and so I set out to capture them.”

This fantastic new album comes hot on the heels of the Headless Heroes album The Silence of Love which Alela contributed vocals for and has gained much critical acclaim and thousands of new fans!!

Memorial Day Tribute 2012 – The Field

0 Memorial Day Tribute 2012   The FieldMason Jennings is far and away my favorite musician and without a doubt the best kept secret in the music industry today. The Field was on his album “Blood of Man” and the lyrics have haunted me from the minute I heard them the first time. This memorial music video is in honor of all the men and women who have fought for our freedom as well as the innocent victims of war.

As a father and educator, the desensitized view on war stemming from video games, some videos on youtube, and even some media outlets frightens me. We must get veterans in our schools to share the truth about what war is really like and the devastating effects it has on the troops fighting and those witnessing the destruction. I don’t think anyone in their right mind wants war. However, some people in this world will never accept a country where freedom is a right and everyone has the opportunity to be as successful as they choose to be. To protect Life, Liberty, and Happiness unfortunately war has to be a result in some situations.

I own none of the pictures, videos or music used in the making of this memorial video but am protected under Section 107 of the US Copyright Law on Fair Use. Thank you to those who captured these images and to Mason Jennings for his music.

A special thank you to all of my family members and friends who have fought for our freedom especially my grandfathers who fought in WWII… Grandpa Dick Teckenburg in the Marines and Grandpa James Journy in the Navy.

Mario Paint – Through the Fire and Flames – Dragonforce

0 Mario Paint   Through the Fire and Flames   DragonforceThanks guys for getting me 5 million hits on this video. It’s quite crazy to think about to think, I was 14 when I made this video.

FAQ:
Q:How long did this take you?
A: Roughly 15 hours of overall work spread out through 5 to 7 days.

Q: Will you ever re-do this in MPC V2?
A: Probably not. I dislike the song enough as it is.

Q: If you dislike this song, then why did you do it?
A: My friend actually asked me to do it as a joke so I did it.

Q: You must have a lot of free time on your hands.
A: Well I made this when I was 14 but admittedly, yes I do have more free time than the avarage 17 year old. I usually spend my free time being productive though.

Q: Can you play any instruments?
A: I’ve been playing Piano for around 5 to 6 years and I’ve been teaching myself Guitar since February this year (2011). I also play around on bass every now and then when I feel like it.

Q: Where’s the bouncing Mario?
A: This is a PC programme made to replicate the original SNES version of the Mario Paint Composer but ridding it of several limitations.

Q: Where do I get this programme?
A: http://www.unfungames.com/mariopaint/
Just unzip it.
