Have you noticed there seems to be dearth of live music on mainstream TV these days? Remember back in the days when there here was always a steady stream of artists out there every week—performing live onstage—showcasing their latest song? Lip-synching to canned (yet flawless) pre-recorded studio tracks was unheard of!
Fortunately YouTube has unexpectedly filled that void. Although it's filled with piracy and inane and filthy commentary, there are some gems if you dig down deep enough. Far removed from the current trend of fake "acted" performances, these rare moments of priceless true live music are oozing with the raw edge of inexplicable free-flowing beauty.
Kick back and enjoy the shows... free from distracting stupidity and profanity—but set aside some unperturbed time to truly appreciate each performance: these are gems that only the timeless collective synchronicity of like-minded musical talents can create...
