Behind The Scenes: Radiohead & USC Marching Band

If you were one of the lucky ones who witnessed Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Johnny Greenwood perform 15 Step with the USC Marching Band at this year’s Grammy Awards, you witnessed sheer music genius. It was undoubtedly one of the boldest and most riveting performances I’ve seen in quite a while. I found a Youtube video documenting a bit of the preparation, rehearsal, and backstage goings-on that went into this wonderful performance. It’s pretty interesting. Also included after the jump is a video of the performance itself from the Grammys.

Billy Ward Offers Special Downloads

Jazz and studio great Billy Ward (Friend of the Podcast) has gifted us with some excellent tapes of his band rehearsing for this past Modern Drummer Festival as well as some videos of the band playing a gig in New York’s The Cutting Room prior to the MD Fest. Pretty great stuff. He’s also made charts of the songs available. Very cool.

Looks like Billy’s set up a “Pay For It What You Will” system a la Radiohead.They’re available for free but you can pay for them if you want. Billy’s a great guy. Go ahead and support him. Links to the downloads as well as Billy’s thoughts from his site are available after the jump.
