I like the Devil's chord. It's the only way to start YYZ or Purple Haze.

I'm so glad I watched the last link. The final 40 seconds made me giggle like a little school girl.

Youtube comment:

"i dont know how to put this in a nice way. but there is absolutely 0 talent there. the talent is in the background with the drummer, guitarist, and bassist.

squeezing horns? really? to cover a metallica song? you are´╗┐ out of ur mind. it doesnt sound good at all. horrible."

Damn it... you've reminded me that I meant to do a Bill Bailey post last Christmas. Here's Bill Bailey playing Duelling Bhangra

Is this possibly sponsored by Toblerone, or does Bill Bailey simply eat an awful lot of them?

Love the YouTube comment mhjb refers to! Talk about not getting it...

If you think heavy metal is too gloomy for you Anssi Kela can help with that.

The musical bits are always the best parts of Bailey's stand up shows. 'Bill Bailey's Remarkable Guide To The Orchestra' was particularly brilliant. Here is his bit on cockney music from that show.

Billy Bragg's son has a favourite Billy Bragg song, only it's not by Billy Bragg. It's the other BB.

Won't you come home, Bill Bailey, won't you come on home? I've moaned that the whole night long. I'll do all the cookin' honey, I'll even pay the rent. I know, I've done you wrong. 'Member that rainy evenin', I throwed you out, with nothin but a fine tooth comb? I know I'm to blame, now... ain't it a shame? So baby, won't you please come ... I say, won't you please come... Bill Bailey, won't you please come home?
