Bill Bailey is a very funny stand-up comedian and not a bad musician altho he learned his tricks by constantely listening to The Monty Pythons and that's bad, really bad...
Musically, he's a weird and necessary person in this world: he invents wild instruments (the six neck electric guitar is a wet dream for anyone raised on Led Zeppelin...) and his raunchy reddition of Metallica songs on old cars's trumpets is exactly how Metallica should have done it in the first place !
In this long but worthy video, Bill gets into some fascinating and funny grooves with the Beeb's Orchestra (directed by the uber-talented Ann Dudley) and it's as funny and interesting: his ways of explaining how to strike different feelings with the appropriate chords is nothing short of fascinating.
Thanx Billl !
