When HAIR Came to Memphis

Via the ever-intriguing Dangerous Minds, here's a great documentary about a controversial production of Hair in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1970.

Roger Waters Presents The Wall - LIVE!

My buddies and I went to see Roger Waters perform Pink Floyd's epic concept album "The Wall" in Nashville on Tuesday, June 19. I never thought I'd get to see this incredible show live, and it was truly spectacular. Waters was in fine voice, and seemed in a great mood as he bantered (minimally, due to the nature of the show) with the audience. They've updated the anti-war references to include our latest adventures in the Middle East, and some of the footage and photos used were truly moving.  Excellent work, sir.

For some reason Blogger has decided to stop letting me put things under a jump, but oh well. Check out my Flickr page for a full gallery of the photos I took during the concert.  And here is a video of Roger singing "Mother" as a duet with film footage of himself ("at the risk of appearing narcissistic," he noted wryly) doing the number at the famous 1980 Earl's Court show.

RIP Susan Tyrrell

We're sad to see Susan Tyrrell has died at the age of 67. She was a unique character - read more about her over at Dangerous Minds, and enjoy some more tasty tidbits over at La Dolce Musto.

Back in 2009 I covered her appearance in the seminal mondo musical Forbidden Zone (singing songs by Danny Elfman).  Her number "Witch's Egg" is just too good not to repost.

Why, yes, that IS HervĂ© Villechaize.
