Grace Potter & The Nocturnals – Never Go Back (Live, 2012)

This was an interesting find. I didn’t expect Grace Potter & The Nocturnals on the Ellen Degeneres Show. Nor did I expect to hear that Ellen has been a big fan of theirs for several years now. Ellen has great taste! These guys are awesome, and their new song is outstanding. I love the drummer. […]

Steely Dan – Black Cow (Live, 2003)

The song starts with one of my favorite lines ever: “In the corner of my eye, I saw you in Rudy’s. You were very high.” It just says so much, in so few words. And mentions being high. What’s not to like? Something else to like: A video of Steely Dan playing “Black Cow” at […]
