Hotel California No1 Top 2000

Er zijn mensen die kunnen Hotel California niet meer horen,begrijpelijk het is letterlijk en figuurlijk grijsgedraaid.Maar het is ,en blijf een ijzersterk nummer.
Ik zelf was getuige van het reunie concert van The Eagles in de Kuip in Rotterdam(1996).H.C was de opener en het begin van mischien wel een van de mooiste concerten uit mijn lange concertbezoekcarriere.(scrabblewoord?)En dan nu no.1 in de Top 2000,hoewel ik nog wel 10 andere nummers kan noemen kan ik hier toch wel vrede mee hebben.
ANTIKLIMAX!!Natuurlijk verwacht je een prachtige uitvoering van de No.1 Hotel California ,maar niets van dat alles.In plaat daarvan interview met Joe Walsh en een zeer vervelende Pierre Wind!!!Gelukkig had ik zelf nog een paar mooie uitvoeringen op de plank liggen,.
HAPPY NEWYEAR!!!!!!!

Van Morrison plays Leadbelly


Van Morrison's first performance as a child was "Good Night, Irene", and he later recorded the song with Lonnie Donegan. In the title track to Morrison's Astral Weeks, the lyrics that refer to Lead Belly: "Talkin' to Huddie Ledbetter/Showin' pictures on the wall/" seem to be based on Morrison's real life custom of carrying around a poster of Lead Belly and hanging it on the wall wherever he was living. This was revealed in a Rolling Stone interview in 1978, where Morrison refers Lead Belly as "my guru". He also mentions Lead Belly in the lyrics to his 1982 semi-autobigraphical song "Cleaning Windows" alongside other blues musicians that inspired Morrison in his youth.
