I got another follower yesterday - thank you!
I think only JayCee (Diary Of A Nobody) and Linda (Local Kiwi Alien) commented but nearly 400 people viewed my last post. Thanks for reading it anyway. I still can't join your blog JayCee. Put it down to me being thick!
I was on good old You Tube yesterday. I have been trying to let my blistered paws recover after all the walking with tents and rucksacks last week.
Two Rock inspired songs/videos for you to watch and listen to. First Xanadu by Canadian Rockers Rush. The song is based on Coleridges Kubla Khan. I have been privileged enough to have seen Rush twice. Sadly the drummer Neil Peart is no longer with us. He was a lyrical and musical genius. If you want to read an excellent motorbike travel memoir by him read Ghost Rider.
Being a Prog Rock band the track is over 11 minutes long. It's also called Cerebral Rock music. You can't beat some Prog can you? Incidentally Xanadu is off their Farewell To King's album. Recorded at Rockfield Studios in the Wye Valley in Monmouthshire in Wales. I never got to Symonds Yat again to see the CS Lewis Shadowlands locations. Yet again no public transport available.
A other Coleridge inspired band: Iron Maiden. More metal than Prog. East London's finest. I saw them back in 1987. Here's The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner by them:
"Water,water everywhere and not a drop to spare".
I think this track is only 14 minutes long. Can you think of any Coleridge inspired Rock songs?
