We share a video every day of the year. Of the nearly 365 videos we shared in 2019, here are the top 10 reader favorites. These videos have been watched tens of thousands of times, including a bunch of views by us too.
Back in 2008, Foo Fighters took the stage at Wembley Stadium. During the show, they were joined by some very special guests: Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page. So, of course, they decided to perform a Zeppelin tune.
Tal Wilkenfeld recently made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, in support of her latest album, “Love Remains.” Here’s her performance of “Killing Me” from the show.
Abby Dart (mom to Vulfpeck’s Joe Dart), shared this video saying, “Vulfpeck shared this today and it was TOO funky not to share with everyone!” This live clip of Prince is definitely funky, thanks to Rhonda Smith and an all-star band.
We caught 8-year-old bass prodigy Áron Hodek at the NAMM show this year and we were blown away. During a performance at the Markbass booth, Richard Bona invited Áron on stage for a jam.
Keith Williams of five watt world put together an incredible video on the legendary Fender Jazz Bass. The video covers the origins of the instrument, the specs, some of the legendary players who played the instrument, and later variations.
Thursday’s are for throwbacks, and we can’t think of a better way to participate than sharing some epic, old-school Rush. Recorded in 1975, here’s the band performing “Anthem,” with Geddy Lee rocking the Ric.
In 2015, Eric Clapton celebrated his 70th birthday with a tour. In this clip, recorded at Royal Albert Hall, Nathan East kicks things off with a fantastic intro, before taking on the lead vocals while throwing down some tasty bass lines.
Tedeschi Trucks Band is currently on tour in support of their latest album, “Signs.” Blackberry Smoke is also on the bill for this tour, and the two groups got together at Red Rocks for this performance of “Don’t Do It.”
On August 21st, Rush is hitting the big screen with “Cinema Strangiato 2019,” featuring live performances and behind-the-scenes footage from their “R40” tour. In celebration, Rush just shared this clip from “R40,” with Geddy Lee handling the heavy load of bass, vocals, and keys.
The Who is releasing a new album on December 6th. But they got our attention today by sharing this clip of them performing “Baba O’Riley,” filmed on B-Stage at Shepperton Studios in 1978.
