I hope everyone’s summer is going well. Summer is the season of light blog posting. With that in mind, I thought I would post something a little different. Here is a video I found via the website, Dangerous Minds. It’s a “Death Metal” Version of the classic song from the movie, “Grease.”
I am not sure why this amuses me so much – but here you go:

I have no recollection of this episode, though. Maybe Black Sabbath was too much for my local TV station in Northeastern Pennsylvania. I consider it really amazing, seeing audience’s enthusiastic reception to Black Sabbath’s high energy performance. I especially like the band’s rendition of “Hole in The Sky,” from the underrated record, “Sabotage.”
Here’s the setlist:
2. Killing Yourself To Live
3. Hole In The Sky
5. War Pigs
Update – August, 2015 Unfortunately, the powers that be decided to remove the entire concert from YouTube Here’s a single song from the concert – an excellent rendition of “Snowblind.”
This is something to behold! This clip is entertaining and educational on so many levels. Note how the songs and the harmonies are constructed. This is how singing should be – from the heart without autotune. This video clip is a must watch for anyone who writes and arranges song!
I had an instrumental song, “Electric Guitar Interlude,” that I thought had the potential of being an interesting soundtrack for a video. After all, having a music video is an excellent way to promote your music. Creating such a video, however, can be a daunting challenge for the independent musician – especially for musicians with limited video production experience and cash flow.
In contemplating what to do, I weighed the options. On one hand, I didn’t want to invest in video cameras and equipment. Paying someone to shoot footage was also out of the question. If I wanted to have a video, I would have to do it myself.
