In the late summer of 1974, a New York brewery called Schaefer’s organised an outdoor music festival at the auditorium in Central Park. Over the course of 12 nights, locals were afforded the opportunity to see a whole host of acts, covering all musical tastes. From Ray Charles to Lynyrd Skynyrd, from The Pointer Sisters to Bad Company, the line-up each evening ran the gamut of some of the most popular outfits of the time. On September 7th, the last night of the run, the bill was topped by Aerosmith and the warm-up act was one Rory Gallagher.

Wearing his standard uniform of jeans, denim jacket and a check shirt, Gallagher took the stage in front of a crowd who’d paid $1.50 and $2.50 to be there and he seemed determined to give them value for money.

“It’s quite a few months since we were here,” said Gallagher as he…

Move Over, Eddie: Teen Girl Shreds Van Halen Cover

 

 

 

 

” A 14-year-old girl named Tina S. may be the next Eddie Van Halen.

In a clip recently posted to YouTube, Tina shows off her otherworldly guitar chops with a cover of the solo from Van Halen’s “Eruption.”

The clip lasts just a minute and a half, but that’s more than enough time for her to make believers out of anyone.

With a lackadaisical look that suggests her performance is no big deal (such a rock star), Tina shreds the strings with such expertise you might find yourself looking for signs of CGI manipulation. Don’t bother—she’s the real deal. And commenters on YouTube seem to feel that they’re not worthy.

A commenter named Samuel Preston imagined the fun Tina could have with unsuspecting sales clerks. “wow! It must be so much fun for her parents to bring her to a music store (that doesn’t know her) and ask one of the tools behind the counter if their little girl can ‘try out one of them nice guitars up there.'”

Tina has been posting clips of herself on guitar for several years now, including one from 2008:

Robert William Gary Moore (4 April 1952 — 6 Feb. 2011), was a Northern Irish musician, blues singer and guitarist.

In a career dating back to the 1960s, Moore played with artists including Phil Lynott and Brian Downey during his teens, leading him to memberships with the Irish bands Skid Row and Thin Lizzy on three separate occasions. Moore shared the stage with such blues and rock luminaries as B.B. King, Albert King, Colosseum II, George Harrison and Greg Lake, as well as having a successful solo career. He guested on a number of albums recorded by high profile musicians, including a cameo appearance playing the lead guitar solo on “She’s My Baby” from Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3.

Moore died in his sleep of a heart attack[2] in his hotel room while on holiday in Estepona, Spain, in February 2011.

“Red House” is a song written by Jimi Hendrix and originally recorded by The Jimi Hendrix Experience in 1966. The song, a slow twelve-bar blues, “is one of the most traditional in sound and form of all his official recordings”. It was developed during his pre-Experience days while Hendrix was performing in Greenwich Village and was inspired by earlier blues songs. Hendrix recorded several studio and live versions during his career. “
