Editor’s Note: Dave Brown is a 30-60 year old man, and the father of our very own Stephen Brown. He has a tremendous fear of cats, which precludes him from learning how to internet, so we’re posting this on his behalf. Dave was an English major, and is far too smart for his own good. He is currently living a Thoreau-inspired life away from bothersome things like computers, the Hustle, and the Grind.
Welcome to Friday Nights With Guitar George! On a Friday evening a few years ago, I found a You Tube video of a great live performance by Stevie Ray Vaughn. I emailed the link to my son and to my brother, both of whom are as fond of classic rock as I am. Over the next few weeks, I found dozens more great live classic rock videos, and I got into the habit of choosing one to email every Friday night with the subject line “Friday Night With Guitar George”. The phrase is a reference to the lyrics of “Sultans Of Swing” by Dire Straits, one of my favorite rock bands, and also a nod to the late great George Harrison.
I thought it would be appropriate for the first installment of Friday Nights With Guitar George to be a stunning rendition of a George Harrison song, performed at a memorial concert following his death.
I hope you enjoy watching and listening, and I hope you will check my post every week.
