Belew and Zappa Web Extra

As Tyrone might say, here’s how the McCheese is made. Well, one way anyway. Sometimes I get together with Tyrone on IM, and we trade music links. Sometimes, they wind up as a radio segment. Here’s one that did, and I’ve promised myself to post these more often. So, enjoy these links, and enjoy the music on the Radio InfoWeb stream as well! If the links have gone bad (as they will with time), the music on the stream remains!

David Bowie “Stay” ’78 Adrian Belew

Tyrone really likes the way Adrian, as a very young man, rips this up! Bowie obviously concurs.

David Bowie “Rebel Rebel” Belew ’78

After that experience (above), I thought I’d try out one of my favorite Bowie oldies that brings back good memories. Here it is from the same live set on German TV.

Frank Zappa – City of Tiny Lites

Adrian Belew tries this out on a track on the InfoWeb set you’ll hear on the stream. It’s not included here. Adrian’s version gave me a taste for hearing composer Frank Zappa perform it…
