100 famous bass riffs and drum beats in one take — watch

All the greats in 17 minutes

Consequence of Sound

A few years back, the Chicago Music Exchange traced the legacy of guitar riffs in a video of Alex Chadwick playing 100 classic riffs in one take. While the guitar riff is probably the first thing most fans think of when considering memorable music, guitarists aren’t the only ones who have left their indelible mark on recording history. Now CME is back to honor those who keep the groove going by showcasing the 100 most famous bass riffs and drum beats, again, in just one stunning take.

Here, bassist Marc Najjar of CME and drummer Nate Bauman of Reverb.com (who also both play together in the Chicago rock act Royale) jam through the history of rock ‘n’ roll. Without ever taking so much as a breather, the two blitz through classics from The Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, Pink Floyd, Stevie Wonder, The Clash, Joy Division, Nirvana, Weezer, Tool, and Daft Punk, among many

Ireland’s Best Are No Longer Good Enough

Dave Hannigan

Eighteen years have passed since Liam Brady became head of youth development at Arsenal. As one of the club’s greatest ever players, the man who once won the Scudetto for Juventus with a penalty in the final game of the season arrived back at Highbury with a specific task. He was charged with rebuilding the academy and under-age set up. Of course, as an Irishman, Brady gave himself a wider remit than just that. The Dubliner wanted to bring more Irish on board because it just seemed wrong even in the mid-90s that Niall Quinn had been the last of his compatriots to break through from the youths to the first team.

Tryin out this Blogging for the first time bare with me

Inside a broken clock
Splashing the wine
With all the Rain Dogs
Taxi, we’d rather walk.
Huddle a doorway with the Rain Dogs
For I am a Rain Dog, too
Chorus:
Oh, how we danced and we swallowed the night
For it was all ripe for dreaming
Oh, how we danced away
All of the lights
We’ve always been out of our minds.
The Rum pours strong and thin
Beat out the dustman
With the Rain Dogs f06clat9


Aboard a shipwreck train
Give my umbrella to the Rain Dogs
For I am a Rain Dog, too.
Oh, how we danced with the
Rose of Tralee
Her long hair black as a raven
Oh, how we danced and you
Whispered to me
You’ll never be going back home
You’ll never be going back home
