Someone has probably done this one for Z before... but:
Zombie by The Cranberries
A is for Alabama
John Coltrane's Alabama, that is.
I care! It corrupts the integrity of the whole damned thread!
I mean, B is for Burning Down the House - Talking Heads
Shameless plug here...
C is for Cedric Watson as featured on my boss' TV show Music Voyager
D is for Dream Warriors -- My Definition of a Boombastic Jazz Style
E is for Earth, Wind And Fire- Sing A Song
F is for Fleetwood Mac- Rhiannon, Live, 1982
Save time and scroll to about 5:45- Lindsey does his stuff there, Stevie gets worked up about fifteen seconds earlier. The Jethro Clampett get-up and the stick man dance are hilarious, but the guy can play. Any other fingerstyle rock guitarists I need to know about?
G is for Earl Grant- House of Bamboo
H is for George Harrison- Give Me Love
I is for I'm Not In Love- 10cc Live, 1982.
Not usually a big fan of songs done as close to the studio recording as possible, but this is an exception because the studio version is pretty much perfect.
J for Join Me - Gregorian
K is for Klark Kent -- Don't Care
Klark Kent was Stewart Copeland's mid-Police side project.
Per the YouTube comments:
According to Stewart's book, the backup band in this clip is Sting on bass, Andy Summers and Kim Turner on guitar, and Florian Pilkington-Miksa (of Curved Air) on drums.
I'll buy that.
I'd forgotten about that song- used to have it on a cassette. Great call.
On the Stewart Copeland theme...
Animal Logic - Rose Colored Glasses
M is a two-fer
Some Guy Named Mick
who just donated his collection to some rock and roll library in England, and brought along his guitar for the opening.
Stay Free (goddamm I love this song so goddam much)
Train in Vain
Not to criticize your post, but I remember when they announced the forming of a band with Copeland (who, IMO is still rock's greatest drummer, as Coliauta plays lots of other stuff, and Neil Peart has become predictable in a bad way) on drums and Stanley Clarke on bass. I was hoping to hear a player's album, like Toto's Hydra, and they instead gave me pop. I can't begin to tell you how disappointed I was.
N is for Harry Nilsson- Me And My Arrow
Cheese with good intentions, but cheese all the same...
O is for Ohio- Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young
P is for Painted Ladies- Ian Thomas
Q is for Quiet Riot- Come On, Feel The Noise
R is for Gerry Rafferty- Baker Street
S is for Shadows In The Rain- The Police, Live in Argentina (I think)
T is for Tarrus Riley - Love's Contagious
U is for Helmet - Unsung
Separate names with a comma.
