A (brief) masterpost of musicals!

(I don’t own/ didn’t record these!) Also, they’re all on YouTube!(it’s unfinished so far!) (I really love brackets, but if any don’t work, I can probably get a different video for you from somewhere else, just send a message. I have a heck of a lot of links)

George Harrison with The Plastic Ono Band at the Lyceum, London, 15 December 1969

“The Plastic Ono Band played ‘Cold Turkey’ at London’s Lyceum Ballroom on Monday night. It was John Lennon’s first live appearance in Britain with his part-time Plastic group (George Harrison joined in too) - writes Alan Smith.
Lennon rolled and raved in his white suit and screamed his blood-curdling screams, across a stage on which stood Eric Clapton, Bonnie And Delaney, Billy Preston, Keith Moon and more.” - NME, 20 December 1969

“That was the craziest thing I ever went through. George [Harrison] was the one who talked me into it. He said to me, ‘You guys want to be in the Plastic Ono Band tonight?’ I said, ‘I don’t know any of those songs.’ He said, ‘You don’t have to. Don’t worry about it.’ We started playing and there was this sack on the floor out there, and I kept poking George, saying, ‘What’s in the sack?’ All he’d say was, ‘You’ll see in a minute.’ Next I asked, ‘What key is the first one in?’ and he said, ‘It don’t matter.’ I thought he was pulling my leg again, then all of a sudden Yoko [Ono] was like a snake coming out of that sack, and she was going ‘woo-oo,’ shrieking. George was laughing his ass off at me - we were playing so loud that we blew all those old Orange amps up. I blew mine first and he said, ‘Just plug it into mine.’” - Delaney Bramlett, While My Guitar Gently Weeps: The Music of George Harrison by Simon Leng

New video on Black Sails! And first since my special Christmas video on ALL the characters :)

Difficult to honor all the characters in a small video of 3 minutes. So I privileged the characters I prefer while trying not to put Charles and Eleanor too far ahead. This music is I think just perfect for Black Sails, but the lyrics corresponds enormously to Flint and Eleanor in particular I find, so Eleanor is still present. 


“Hold on until the feelin’ is so strong until the ground that you walk on
Is where you stand.
This dream, it heals and it haunts me, It’s tempted and taught me who I am.

This town ain’t yours
And this town ain’t mine.
We all come here with a light in our eyes
Some will burn out.
Some will burn bright.
Some learn to fly.
Some will run for their lives.
In this town.


Strangers, we’re nothin’ but strangers
Putting our hearts in danger
For the song we sing.
I’ve seen the devil inside me
But I won’t let him guide me
Or take my wings.”
