Arise then, O sluggard, and shake off your excuses; how long will you slumber and fold your hands to sleep? Will you lie down in the midst of the sea, or sleep on the top of a mast? There is no remedy, but you must either turn or burn. — C.H Spurgeon (via community4christ)

Good evening ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Universal Amphitheatre. Well, here it is, the late seventies going on 1985. You know, so much of the music we hear today is all pre-programmed electronic disco, we never get a chance to hear master blues men practicing their craft anymore. By the year 2006, the music known today as the blues will exist only in the classical records department of your local library. So tonight ladies and gentlemen, while we still can, let us welcome, from Rock Island Illinois, the blues band of Joliet Jake and Elwood Blues, the Blues Brothers.

Neil Young performs Rockin’ In the Free World on Saturday Night Live, September 30th, 1989.

One of the greatest moments in the history of rock and roll with a one-off band assembled just for this performance.

"I picked the biggest drums, the biggest cymbals I could find—I’d been workin’ TV long enough to know that if I didn’t have cymbals that big, nobody would hear ‘em." -Steve Jordan, drummer

"Frank ‘Poncho’ Sampedro (rhythm guitar) oozed a particularly menacing vibe, all pumped up and greased back, while Carley Drayton (bass), in flashy leathers and ripped jeans, tumbleweed hair obscuring his sullen face, slowly lumbered around like a prehistoric mutant marking territory. Steve Jordan pounded the drums with the desperation of a man about to be buried alive. Halfway through the performance, Young flashed a look at his little collection of creatures, and for a moment he seemed ready to burst out laughing. What a band. Two black guys, a Spaniard and a crazy Canuck. They looked like a bunch of car thieves." -Jimmy McDonough, Shakey

"I was trying to get to the place where I would be when I did Rockin’ in the Free World during my live show. To do that I had to ignore Saturday Night Live completely. I had to pretend I wasn’t there. I had my trainer, and we just lifted weights and I did calisthenics to get my blood to the level it would be at after performing for an hour and twenty-five minutes—which is usually how long I’d be onstage by the time I did that song. To perform that song the way it’s supposed to be performed, you have to be at peak blood level. Everything has to be up, your machine has to be stoked. You can’t walk on cold and do that or you’re gonna look like a fuckin’ idiot.” -Neil Young

Searching For Sugar Man (2012)

This is one of the best documentaries I’ve ever seen. If you haven’t seen it, do NOT watch the trailers, because they spoil the movie. Just go see it, knowing as little as possible about it. It’s just amazing.

Rise and Fall of The Big 8 is a movie about a legendary radio station in Windsor back in the day that owned the Detroit market more than US stations did. I didn’t have much luck finding the whole thing to download anywhere though.  Youtube has a few clips from it.
