Thanks deya, nice relaxing songs. Don't worry about me as I usually only get rattle by important things that actually affect my life and that of the people that I love. Last Sunday, we had elections down here and as expected they were rigged., now that bothers me.

You know, The Cold War was over 20 years ago, right? Wrong, in countries like mine we still fighting the Cold War. We have a lot of old Cold warrior's still running around down here. I deal with that every day. The difference now is that this renegades make the conflict seem to be a north/south thing instead of east/west.

This song is Free bird, I think you ll like it.
"If I leave here tomorrow, would you still remember me"
Those words were the inspiration for the song. They were said by Gary Allens girlfriend, Kathy, whom he later married at a time that she was thinking on leaving him. He wrote the words down and later the song was written.

Some people think that it was dedicated to Duane Allmans but this is not so as it was written before Duanes death. Gary Rossington plays slide guitar on this song and was a great admirer of DA but why it was written has nothing to do with DA.

Rossington is the only original member of LS that's still alive. He can be seen playing the slide on this video.

Thought to share a few romantic soft songs from South India The language is Tamil. Please don't ask me to translate lol. I don't know the language properly. I thought to share few songs of my language which is closely related to this language, but it's one of the hardest languages in the world. It's for you to find out. I wonder if Anupam has some idea. And these are songs from different Tamil movies.

Nenukkul Peythidum This one was 2008 best romantic song

Dhimu Dhimu
(Nice video, cute girl )

Dickie Betts and his son.

Jessica its got to be one of the best Allman Brothers songs of all time. I remember reading Duane Allman saying to someone who was comparing him to Dickie, "I am the famous one, he is the great one".

Here is Mr Dickie Betts, he wrote this for his daughter.

This is a song about old Curt, the finest picker to ever play the blues.

The Ballad Of Curtis Lowe - great song, Bo. One of my favourites. And the Tamil music links that George.J posted are very good, especially the first one. Ended up listening to a Tamil radio station with Tapin through the week and they played some good music on there. I don't think the language is a problem when listening to music, as long as it's good, that's all that matters.

Found a couple of decent live performances from The Who, one of my all time favourite bands. Grew up with this music, an awesome band, tons of power.

First one is Can't Explain, live at The Royal Albert Hall;

Second one is Won't Get Fooled Again, from the concert for New York City;

Almost the original line up on both songs, with the exception of Keith Moon on the drums. But Zak Starkey, the son of Ringo Starr, has proved to be a brilliant replacement.

I'd happily charge into the depths of Hades, if Pete Townshend with that guitar was leading from the front

deya many thanks for the Who links; a truly great band.

Rory Gallagher is one of my all time favourite guitarists and this track is all about the loneliness of life on the road and the desire to be back home:

I had the good fortune to get to know Rory over several years during the 1980s, but as my mate Mick Jagger used to say, 'Torres whatever you do never name drop'!
