When Giants Collide

What happens when musical giants collide?  Something really cool, that’s what!  At least that’s what usually happens.  Sometimes it’s an epic fail, but not in this case.  Earlier today I was looking at a Steven Wilson video which led to this video I am about to attach to this post.  It is a clip of Dream Theater’s Jordan Rudess on his solo tour where he is joined on stage by Steven Wilson.  As you can imagine, it is a powerful duo.

Personally, I don’t know enough about Steven Wilson.  I will probably download Grace For Drowning soon. I feel like I am missing something by not having it.  It has been a great year in metal which is making my Top 10 of 2011 a tough list to accomplish.  Enjoy the video clip (song).

  1. Great find dude!! I loved this song!!! And I clicked the next video after which was Steven and Jordan playing “Lazarus” (from Porcupine Tree’s album Deadwing) and they did a wonderful version of that song.
    Jordan Rudress plays on a few songs on the Grace for Drowning album too, and does some great work while he’s there. I should pick up one of his solo albums one day, everything I’ve heard from listening to him on youtube I really like.
    And yeah, Grace for Drowning is worth every penny. The more I keep mulling over my top 10 of the year that seems more and more likely to take number one. I feel it’s his best work to date, including his work with Porcupine Tree. If you end up picking it up let me know what you think, I’d like to hear your thoughts on it.
