seen last night: free bird!

last night in the shanghai dive bar time passage , three chinese guys are playing decent cover tunes – all classic rock. some eagles, clapton, beatles, billy joel – late sixties through the late seventies. because we are obnoxious fools, we starting making the hand of rock and – well we weren’t shouting ‘freebird’ but we did say it loudly a couple of times.

and lo, did they become the first band to ever take that request seriously, and we were rewarded with a rocking version of freebird.

here’s the original. skynyrd!

    1. We prefer the term “banana” around here missy.
    2. It’s only because i’m too lazy to find the WordPress chinese language plug-in.
    3. Turn off your VPN – that’s why you can’t get to YouKu.
