OK, so my site is definitely in need of a little Rock ‘N Roll!! Here’s Phil X with his group, The Drills, doing their version of Deep Purple’s “Highway Star”!
BTW — If you are a guitar player, and especially love great classic electric guitars and amps, you should definitely watch Phil X’s Friday videos. He profiles great classic electric guitars by playing the heck out of them, interspersed with wisecracks, insanity, shredding and occasional bits of wisdom. You can subscribe to them via the frettedamericana channel. Very entertaining!

I have to post a link to this wonderful guitar arrangement of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know”. Fantastic!
