I think even JohnK would approve.

Nothing Else Matters

Here I am on my day off and OK....in one post I am going to reveal my "Old Fartness" and the fact that I have not been here lately.

I am blown away by Apocolyptica - I had never heard of them until I pulled up this thread. I have now been surfing Youtube for the past hour. Even my wife came upstairs to check it out.

I don't have a video but this thread puts me in mind of seeing my daughters sing "Dirty Deeds" while playing acoustic guitar. I get a smile everytime I hear AC DC now.

That's cute, but when they start playing the Sid Vicious version of Sinatra's "I Did it My Way," I'd get very nervous.

I found this enjoyable-
The Doors:Hello, I Love You performed by the Prague Symphony Orchestra

DECCA recording:467350

Directed by Peter Scholes
This is actually a collection of Doors music arranged for full orchestra.

Well worth a listen!
