Thanks to Listener RuZZ for these awesome up close and personal pics of ZZ Top, Floggin Molly and Dan Akroyd!
Cope says it daily at noon, once in awhile Bob & Coe say it during "What's the Deal?" or "Barrel of Monkeys"...what are these "Deep Cuts" you are referring to people?
See, in my generation of music, the artists I like are still coming out with their first "Greatest Hits" albums and don't technically have any tracks that would be considered a deep cut. So I had never even heard the term deep cut until recently - if it doesn't exist in the Top 40 format then when would I have heard it?!
I have to say...I like some of these Deep Cuts I'm hearing. On the other hand, some should just stay hidden!
From the moment I started working with the "Mistress of Every Known Fact of Rock" (Coe Lewis) I literally began learning something new about Classic Rock every single day in the studio. Let me preface - I am no dummy BUT I don't know anything about music pre 1983...
So one day back when I first started working with Coe, I was listening to our show and Elton John's "Your Song" came on and I thought to myself..."hmmm, did Elton remake this song from Moulin Rouge?" (One of the best movies ever!!!) Then as I presented my confusion to Coe, she nearly fell over in disbelief as to what I just asked. After laughing at me...or with me maybe not at me?...she explained to me that Moulin Rouge in fact remade Elton's song! She was so nice as to not laugh for hours, only peridocially on and off throughout the show that morning.
So that officially became my first day at Sarah's School of Rock in the studios of 101KGB.
Recently, we played Guns N' Roses "November Rain" during "Barrel of Monkeys Monday." I had one of those moments where I was immediately taken back to when I was probably 8 or 9 and saw this video for the first time and absolutely fell in love with the song. This was the first time that I was really touched by music in a song rather than just the lyrics. I'm talkin feeling chills from the music.
From the moment the orchestra is brought into the begining of the song to Slash's solo on top of the piano & in the middle of a deserted chapel I am completely infatuated with this song. It's funny the way memories can just rush back as soon as you heard the first piano riff in a song. I haven't really heard it in a long time and this morning I felt all those emotions again. The music in this song captivates me.
And the video?! Where do I begin! This video is matched so absolutely perfect to the song. It is magic. And that is how I feel about that ;)
