For some reason, Jimi adds "Over There" to this medley, sliping it in between "Silent Night" and "Auld Lang Syne".

Or is that "Taps"? I get those confused...

If Jesus were to show up today - I mean the real Jesus-as-spiritual-teacher Jesus - it would be almost impossible for him to get any attention. He would have to be a Rock Star, or a Movie Star, just to tell people to try to be their best, to help each other, to make the world a better place.

I'm not a religious person, but I wish you all love and peace and some form of transcendent New Year.

Jimi uses to throw Taps into the middle of star-spangled banner when he plays it live too.
