listening magic

I've been as enthralled as anyone else with the Led Zeppelin concert footage available on YouTUBE for those who weren't in London. Hearing Led Zep as a 12-year-old at Sally's house was analogous to seeing Yosemite Valley for the first time - a big WoW. Is a white haired Jimmy Page not the coolest? Alex and I compared Led Zep stories on the drive to Wendy's for song group last night. Per usual, playing a song to listeners for the first time always makes a song somehow more real and the song-writing community in general, gives validity to the whole path of songwriting. Songsalive! tonight w/Jean, Alex, Tiffany and Steven continues this weeks trend... On that note, old-guard, great writers Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young (who kept coming up again and again in various walks of life during the past week, I simply had to do some revisiting) have been a great soundtrack for the day....
