Video Du Jour: Brendan Benson with Eric Burdon
Sorry we keep bringing up our recent trip to Austin, but … you gotta see this. It’s Brendan Benson, the excellent rock singer/songwriter, performing at a party for the Gram Parsons Foundation. Suddenly he introduces Eric Burdon, former lead singer of the Animals – and away they go, on “When I Was Young.” It was one of those performances that literally makes your hair stand up if you are lucky enough to witness it in person. Sorry we couldn’t embed the video, but you can see it at this link:
