Another year is drawing to a close, and what better way to evaluate it then by reflecting on the top 3 moments related to classic rock that occurred in it?
Here are my top 3 for 2011:
#3 - Black Sabbath Announcing That It Will Tour in 2012
Sometimes the best events in any given year are the ones that give you hope for the future.
#2 - Black Dog Mashup
The mash-up genius Kutiman graced us with proof that Zeppelin's Black Dog continues to be the riff heard round the world (my vote for best participant: “talent show 2008”):
#1 - David Gilmour Joining Roger Waters for Comfortably Numb During the London Performance of The Wall.
These guys may hate each other, but they still can muster a transcendent moment or two when they play on the same stage. As one youtube commenter put it, "Imagine that... You're already beyond-excited about seeing Roger Waters' The Wall, and out pops David Gilmour...I would LITERALLY cry."
