I was very sad this morning to learn that Leon Redbone died yesterday at a hospice in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. So I listened to his music all morning on Spotify. He was unique. He revived ragtime, vaudeville and Tin Pan Alley music, and my big regret is never having seen him in concert.

I always get this...
(not sure why the exceptionally beautiful Salma Hayek is in the clip, she's hardly a "gypsy" in that film)
when I always mean this...

I saw him being decidedly catty about Gene Simmons once but it was pretty funny and Simmons is probably a massive twat.
Much honesty and integrity on display here in an archive interview with Dio:


Who did anything like this live on a stage?
Mercury? Dickinson or Halford in their prime? Not many others...

I think, on balance, this is about the best live recording I've ever heard of Iron Maiden. It's before Bruce burned his voice out for a while with epic over-touring and reckless screams. The band is all on form and very tight and (with all credit to Nicko, who I like), Clive Burr is on fire behind the drums.

Giving a lot of time to Bob Rich. Nest is sweet with birdsong set to a pure ambient background. Like a fine combination of Eno and Stearns.

Posting this for no other reason that it never gets played on those 80's radio stations where apparently only three types of music existed .. Wham, Spandau Ballet and Elton John ..

Maybe Oran "Juice" Jones is rarely heard because his hit is very stalker-y? You should see the video! Very threatening towards his girlfriend, no wonder she wants to leave him.
