Brazilian-born musician Joe Penna came to the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix to play some of 6,000+ instruments housed there from roughly 200 of the world's countries and territories.
His sweet one-man cover of Misirlou (theme from Pulp Fiction) features 75+ instruments, including a yak jawbone and a special appearance from MIM's own octobasse.
Are you going to work today or are you going to watch an epic Grateful Dead concert at the Winterland Ballroom?
This movie, released in 1977 and directed by Captain Trips himself, includes the five night stand at the Winterland, which closed down after this. The band also went into hiatus following these performances as they did no touring in 1975.
Great animation, music, and featuring the "Wall of Sound" concert sound system that the Dead used for all of 1974.

Ladybeard is a man of multiple talents, and looking pretty nice in feminine dresses is only one of them: he's an actor, a wrestler, a martial artist and metal singer.
Be sure and hit the video at the bottom of the page. Incredible.
Everyone considers Billy Preston to be "The Fifth Beatle", though here is proof that Eric Clapton can lay claim to that title as well.

I have the album and ripped a bunch of MP3s off of it years ago. This song came up on my iPod today. I had to share.
The lyrics are a little less intelligible but the live performance with the five piece brass section is more fun.

Look, kids, I realize that there's a constant generational divide in popular music, and that us old white people are totally out of tune with today's urban culture. I know all this. That being said, if this self-proclaimed 'greatest living rockstar' is the best that you guys can come up with to idolize, you really are hopeless. Now go clean your room, Kanye probably barfed all over that too.

Bassists are criminally overlooked and under-appreciated members of most every band. Yet there's scientific proof that bassists are actually one of the most vital members of any band. There are powerful neurological and structural reasons why our music needs bass. It's time we started treating bassists with the respect they deserve.

The Onion's AV Club has the mighty Bela Fleck and fellow banjoist Abigail Washburn cranking out the Europe hit this week, and brother, it's exactly as awesome as you'd expect it to be. Turn up the speakers and rip out the knob.
