    One of the weird ones that I thought worked was Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra.

    I remember seeing the original airing of this and thinking "how freaking awesome" the pairing was. Odd yes, but freaking awesome at the same time.

    Professional musicians should be able to sound awesome with just a little bit of rehearsal time. It's their job.

    Aerosmith and Run DMC.
    I'm sure someone who isn't currently on a phone can embed it for me.

    Apparently Run DMC thought the lyrics sounded like hillbilly jibberish, and Aerosmith hated rap, so both parties had to be talked into it. They ended up quite liking and respecting each other and it had amassive impact in bringing rap and hip hop into the mainstream.
    Posting on the basis that ignorance shared is ignorance doubled.

    I was always impressed with Prince's ability to deliver massive guitar licks. He seems like a very talented guitarist to me.

    I have worked with him on and off for over 25 years, and not only is he one of the best guitar players I have ever heard, he plays every other instrument you can put in front of him as well as or better than the actual players he has with him...

    Prince is arguably the most talented and influential musical artist over the last 40 years. I put him near the top for longevity, out-put, talent, and live performances. He's still putting out great music. Sure, he's had some clunkers, but when you create as much as he does you're bound to.

    The Leningrad Cowboys are just awesome... I have some stories about them too... they own a brewery in Helsinki, and Leningrad Cowboy beer is like a hammer blow to the head.

    Just a brief little bit of background... Back in the day before the USSR imploded, Leningrad, as it was then called, was a mere hop skip and a crawl away from Helsinki, and those enlightened Russkies were all about liberating as much hard currency as possible from the very loose pockets of even looser vodkarised Finns visiting that fair city.
    Coaches would take loads of Finns down to Leningrad to have a weekend of drunken tomfoolery, and after a night or two of partying, the Russkies would scrape up the debris and reload them on their coaches back to Helsinki, with empty pockets and emptier stomachs. I witnessed this at first hand when we spent 2 weeks there with the Scorpions, and we coined the phrase: "To be completely Finned", which meant you were lying in a pool of vomit going up and down in the hotel elevator all night.
    Anyway, the Leningrad Cowboys were Finns who decided that enough was enough, and they would keep their good people at home as much as possible by buying a brewery, and ensuring the beer was strong enough to keep all the vodka tourists and their Finnmarks at home. It worked. After a couple of cans of their stuff, you are incapable of going anywhere. It also meant they could finance their musical career, and they are something of a legend in Scandinavia and Northern Europe.
    We once put together a show in Bremerhaven on a football field-sized floating barge with the Scorps, with the Cowboys opening, and it was truly a sight to behold, watching them walking backwards up the stairs to the deck of the barge from their boat because their shoes would not fit on the steps...

    Anything Johnny Cash did automatically became the best version of that thing ever. Just sayin'.

    RIP, Mr. Cash.

    Dogs get festive and play drums, keyboard, and cello in this version of "The Little Drummer Boy." Walk Off the Earth is the real group behind this song.
