T. Rex – Jeepster (Live at Wembley in 1972)

A friend reminded me that it was Marc Bolan’s birthday yesterday (Sept 30th). He’d be 67 now, if he hadn’t died in that car crash back in 1977. A tragic loss. I found this great live clip of T.

Neil Young – Old Man (Live, 1971)

How I know I’m getting old: When I listen to Neil Young‘s “Old Man”, I no longer identify with the song’s protagonist. Instead, I find myself identifying with the old man… Help! I’ve fallen! And I can’t get up! Here’s Neil playing “Old Man” live to a BBC studio audience, not long after he’d finished writing […]
