If You Bill It, They Will Rock...

I had this dream the other night (well, the other day since I've succumbed to vampirism) that I threw a gigantic music festival in an old European village - it was probably from the Immagine in Cornice DVD ingrained to my subconscious.

As I looked down from an ancient balcony, I saw a large causeway/stairs full of people. They formed a circle around a performer playing an acoustic guitar. After that set was done, the performer passed the guitar to the next musician to play. And so on, and so forth. This was exciting stuff, as everyone knew the songs that were played. I was pleased with the festival I had created.

Somewhere during this sequence, Bruce Springsteen asked if he could play, since he was in this neck of the world on tour, but the E Street Band had their day off that day. So he offered to play an acoustic set in the middle of the day. I thought that was cool, so he was part of the festival.

The End. Now download some songs linked above, or you can preview the songs by using the streaming music widget at the top left. And if you feel the need to throw some Euros, pence, or cents into the donation fund, I won't stop you!
