From Joe Walsh’s 1985 album “The Confessor,” comes this blistering 7-minute plus title track that starts off quiet (albeit very menacing) and then explodes into one of the best hard rock guitar freakouts of all time. Some extremely sick and heavy guitar playing in the second half of this song. Completely kicks the ass of 95% of the music that calls itself hard rock.
Zevon’s last song from his final album “The Wind.” Recorded when he was terminally ill with cancer, “Keep Me in Your Heart” was a nice way to say “Goodbye,” especially for an artist who wrote some extremely dark and cynical songs. This footage is from a documentary about the recording of Zevon’s final album. You’ll notice a lot of famous friends making appearances (Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Joe Walsh, Don Henley).
