GPP Street Team #11

The Green Pepper Press Street Team Crusade #11 is
Time to make some noise and play some music on your site! You can be all fancy and embed an auto play video, or a click-and-play video, or just offer links to videos/music you like.


I have a lot of faves from the 'old days', but this first piece of music I discovered through a friend just 6 years ago. Seems like yesterday.
Its haunting, moody, full of compassion...I love it. This video was taken in Chester which is in situated in Cheshire, UK, where I was born, and is of Ed Alleyne-Johnson playing 'Orange' from the album Ultraviolet.

Ed busks Chester



This second piece is reminiscant of my twenties....I think thats why I love this video lol...plus I think the singer is sexy lol (I used to think the lead guitarist was hot but my tastes have changed lol)

Metallica- Whisky in the Jar



And one from the Foo Fighters...they were in Brighton (down the road from me) last Friday and played a gig to just 250 people. I bet it was amazing. Dave Grohl is one of my fave front men. This song has really powerful lyrics...

Foo Fighters - Best of You



Pop over to Michelle Wards site at GPP and join in ... there are some great sounds on peoples blogs - some of which are very suprising to see linked with the artist.

WOW!!! The violinist--Ed Allayne-Johnson--he is awesome! I checked out some more of his stuff on youtube.com He does a sweet version of Guns and Roses "Sweet Child of Mine", among other things. Love the sound! Quite the find, thanks for sharing this!

Totally agree with you on the Foo's, they are my absolute favourite band, I've seen them a few times (the first time in a small venue which was more than amazing). My friend saw them last week at the V festival and I was very jealous!
