Anna Clendening: AGT Audition, Hallelujah
Anna Clendening is an American Singer/ Songwriter who first came to prominence on Season 9 (2014) of America’s Got Talent. Anna’s Audition song was Hallelujah” which she sang whilst playing the guitar, Watching that Audition, In my opinion its one of those moments that you never forget. Anna has such an amazing talent and although she didn’t go on to win Season 9 of America’s Got Talent, she did make it to the Quarter Finals and she did herself proud.
Since her time a couple of years back on America’s Got Talent, Anna has written and released a number of Songs, one of my favourites is To My Parents

Friday April 11th The E Street Band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by their Frontman Bruce Springsteen. Bruce has always acknowledged the role the E Street Band has had on his career and this night was no exception with this except from his speech;
I told a story with the E Street Band that was, and is, bigger than I ever could have told on my own. And I believe that settles that question.
So with his usual Poetry in Motion Bruce goes on to tell the story of the E street band in a way that only he could. For all you fans of The Boss sit back and listen as he takes you on a lyrical journey that makes you feel somewhat like you were there.
Good evening. In the beginning, there was Mad Dog Vini Lopez, standing in front of me, fresh out of jail, his head shaved, in the Mermaid Room of the Upstage Club in Asbury Park. He told me he had a money-making outfit called Speed Limit 25, they were looking for a guitarist and was I interested? I was broke, so I was. So the genesis point of the E Street Band was actually a group that Vini Lopez asked me to join to make a few extra dollars on the weekend.
Shortly thereafter, I met Dan Federici. He was draped in three quarter-length leather, had his red hair slicked back with his wife Flo — she was decked out in the blonde, bouffant wig — and they were straight out of Flemington, NJ.
So Vini, Danny, myself, along with bass player Vinnie Roslin, were shortly woodshedding out of a cottage on the main street of a lobster-fishing town: Highlands, NJ. We first saw Garry Tallent along with Southside Johnny when they dragged two chairs onto an empty dance floor as I plugged my guitar into the upstage wall of sound. I was the new kid in a new town, and these were the guys who owned the place. They sat back and looked at me like, “Come on, come on, punk. Bring it. Let’s see what you got.” And I reached back and I burnt their house down.

I really like these Literal Version Youtube videos. They sort of show how silly some of the music video clips really are, and yet you don’t seem to notice it until it is expressed in this manner.

Well I would have thought that the result was a given, obviously not.
Diversity wins Britain’s Got Talent final
After watching Diversity perform in the final, I must say that it was an incredibly hard choice, Susan Boyle or Diversity. I guess Susan’s career and future has already been set, so I wasn’t that upset that Susan Didn’t come first.
Susan Boyle comes second in Britain’s Got Talent
Susan Boyle is an amazing talent and she is certainly no loser, she is destined for a wonderful career in music.

Video: Wes Carr via YouTube
Feels Like Woah by Wes Carr is one of my favourite songs, I really love the fresh rock sound, a little like a softer version of Cold Chisel or Bruce Springsteen. Wes may have come from Australian Idol, but he is definintely not a manufactured musician, he has real talent.

We have shown Fairytale of New York on Getalookatthis before and so some of you may have seen it already. In this post I would just like to add another version of the song. This time I have added the version by Tex Perkins ( Former lead singer of The Cruel Sea ) and Clare Bowditch ( another home grown Australian talent ). The duet by Tex and Clare was performed during a Rockwiz Christmas Special in December 2007.
For those of you who don’t know, Rockwiz is an Australian show aired on SBS Television. The show is a Rock Quiz ( hence the name Rockwiz ) and includes 2 teams each with 2 audience members and 1 musician who then answer a number of rock and music questions. It would have to be one of my favourite alltime shows, along with ABC Television’s equivalent show called Spicks and Specks. Anyway enough rambling and back to the music, enjoy!
