2CELLOS: Monday YouTube Fix

Andrew Hitz

Judging by the fact this video has over four million views, I think I may be the last person on the internet to watch it.  I have stated for many years that if I had to play another instrument, it would be the cello.  When you combine that with the fact that my second ever rock and roll concert was seeing AC/DC on November 2, 1990 at the Worcester Centrum and you might correctly assume that this clip does it for me. Aside from my love of the cello and AC/DC, this arrangement of Thunderstruck is truly striking.  The repetitive rock and roll riffs are played effortlessly and the vocal parts are performed perfectly, which is not an easy task on any instrument.  The driving energy of this arrangement is just awesome.

I can't believe it took me until to today to see this clip.  Thanks to my friend @cglush for sending it my way.  For those about to rock, we salute you...
