In my opinion, Dark Side of the Moon is not just an album, it's one continuous piece of music that sounds RIGHT when played all of the way through, and that is just what a high school band in KS is doing.
Band leader Eric Crawford took his love of Pink Floyd's legendary album a step further, arranging the entire thing for his high school band, who will perform it in its entirety this weekend.
All I have to say on the topic, is BRAVO!

November 8 1971 is a date that would change rock and roll and heavy metal forever: the day Led Zeppelin released their fourth studio album.
Quite possibly one of the greatest albums in history, Zeppelin IV (or Zoso as it's sometimes referred to) gave birth to some of the greatest classic rock of all time.
The thing kicks off with rockers Black Dog and Rock and Roll, into the mystic ballad The Battle of Evermore, and finishes side one with the epic, legendary Stairway to Heaven.
Side two of the record is slightly less familiar, but equally solid. It starts off with the fun yet rocking Misty Mountain Hop, into Four Sticks, named for John Bonham using four drumsticks simultaneously while recording the song, into the heartfelt Going to California and finishing off with the ultra-powerful blues rocker When the Levee Breaks.
On a related note, UltimateClassicRock.com released a list of fun facts called The 10 Things You Didn't Know About Led Zeppelin IV, which you can find by clicking here.
Roger Waters, among others, played an amazing charity concert in support of wounded veterans called "Stand Up For Heroes" last night. The highlight is easily RW's performance of John Lennon's "Imagine" with a band of wounded vets as guest musicians. It's truly beautiful stuff. Check out the entire special below.

I was lucky enough to meet the guys from Foreigner last night before their show at the Pikes Peak Center. I can't remember which ones, but a few had accents, which is how the band originally came up with their name. The thought process was, no matter where they were, at least one of them would be a Foreigner in the country they were in.
This last Halloween Eve Doors' guitarist Robbie Krieger joined jam legends Govt Mule, (Allman Brothers guitarist Warren Haynes's other band), for a truly once in a lifetime performance.
