Just how much guitar goodness can you fit in to one song? This much!
Eric Clapton sits in with The Allman Brothers Band on the classic Derek and the Dominos track “Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad”
Nils Lofgren shared this great photo of himself accompanying Neil Young back in 1973. I have always been a big fan of Nils, way before his E Street Band days. Check out his work with Grin as well for some enjoyable listening.

I open one eye
And I put out my hand just to touch your soft hair
To make sure in the darkness that you were still there
And I have to admit I was just a little afraid
I had a little bit of luck you were awake I couldn’t take another moment alone
Roger Waters “The Moment Of Clarity”

So it’s April 2014 which seems as good a time as any to share my 2013 music listening charts. I use the wonderful last.fm web site and service to track my listening. It is probably pretty accurate as the bulk of my listening is done through my computer and thus recorded. What is lacking would be the stuff I listen to in the car but honestly I think that represents such a small amount of my listening time that it wouldn’t impact this in any substantial fashion.
So here are my top 20 most listened to artists for 2013
And also at the individual track level
Obviously it was a big year for me and The Head and the Heart. I discovered their self titled debut album early in the year which immediately got put in to very heavy rotation, and then their follow up Let’s Be Still was released in October. Both albums are outstanding and are well worth a listen (or you know, repeated listens)
Also notable I think is the inclusion of The Honorary Title on the artist list. Their Anything Else But The Truth release is just astounding.
Otherwise, I don’t see many surprises on my list. If you want to keep up with my listening in real time you can do so by visiting my last.fm profile.
