ridiculously awesome Simple Minds performance from the 5x5 tour:   You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

most of this is the Berlin show, with a few songs from London and a show in Spain to fill in gaps.

Last Monday I was walking downtown, and as I was leaving an office (near the historical sites in my city), I bumped into Robert Plant!  :o

That would be strange enough if you lived in the U.K., so imagine the odds of it happening in Córdoba, Argentina.

I didn't know what to say, so I congratulated him on being a genius, and told him the first time I ever saw him was at the Freddie Mercury Tribute, where he sang a bit of Led Zeppelin's "Thank You", before singing "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" with Queen. And he said: "Ah, yes, the Freddie Mercury Tribute", in his old British accent.

Then, in a hopelessly ridiculous moment, I sang a bit of "Thank You" to him... "If the sun refused to shine"... and he looked to me as if to say: "Yeah, I already know that one..."

Really an amazing, surreal experience... And as I said goodbye, without asking for an autograph or a picture, I started thinking: "Was that real?? Man... I've just been talking face to face with a legend!"

Should have asked him to say Hi to Bono on my behalf.  :D

Have Plant and Bono ever met?

I know Plant was a U2 fan in the mid-to-late '80s; wonder if he still is.

I saw Radiohead in London twice recently on their King of Limbs Tour. Check out this outstanding version of Nude. Live music doesn't get more powerful.

If you are up to a bit of a challenge, try the following Miles Davis tracks, and don't skip it just because it's jazz.  This is not your grand parents' jazz.  This is the jazz that Hendrix was prepared to play; he and Davis were about to record together when Hendrix died.  They are ordered from easiest to listen to to toughest.  They are all pure genius and show why Miles is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

And, if you want your grandparents' jazz, try this. It is awesome

Thanks for that! Enjoyed the hell out of it. 'Miles Runs the Voodoo Down' is probably my favourite Miles track and easily the greatest title for any piece of music ever.
