All Along The Watchtower | Playing For Change | Song Around The World
I remember having a daydream about the opening acoustic guitar part of “All Along The Watchtower” ending with a Native American scream and a big native drum on the downbeat. That was the spark to assemble one of our biggest and deepest Songs Around The World. From Beirut to New Orleans to the Lakota Nation, musicians play and sing like a musical army determined to stop suffering and greed all over the world. As a society, we need to get back to our roots and connect deeper with our ancestors and native people in general so we can find the wisdom we need to move forward as a human race. As Jimi Hendrix once said, “If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.”

I've been posting Playing for Change videos for years. It's a great concept well executed and the choice of music is excellent.





This is the final PFC Song Around The World featuring both Roger Ridley and Grandpa Elliott together and serves as a tribute to them both for all the love and talent they have shared with everyone who’s ever passed them by on the streets. I remember asking Roger Ridley, “Why with a voice like yours are you playing music on the street?” He replied, “Man I’m in the joy business, I come out to be with the people.” Check out the amazing vocals of Roger’s sister, Alice Tan Ridley, recorded live in Harlem, NYC, as she sings her final song with her brother. RIP Roger, you live through the good we all create together in this world.

Jeff Beck & Rod Stewart
Who would have bet on those two ever ever again performing a whole set together, wow.
It's pretty clear who is in charge.
When Jeff Beck is on, he is in a league of his own, few can attempt to challenge.
The first time I saw and heard these songs performed was the Jeff Beck Group with Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood on bass, Aynsley Dunbar on drums, and Nicky Hopkins on keyboard (at least in my hometown).
That was also one of the very first records I bought.

A bit rough around the edges, but still great stuff. It's the complete benefit gig at Kenney Jones polo club.
That's 'Small Faces' Steve Mariott's daughter Mollie (black dress) singing background.
