Celebrating Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductees 2015

Has there ever been a more exciting time to love music? Despite the music industry’s loud, long-standing complaints, the answer is ‘No!’

Today we have more artists making more music that’s more accessible to more fans than ever before. But just because platforms like YouTube, Spotify and Pandora have made music listening more convenient than ever, and services like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have given bands new ways of supporting themselves, creating new work and funding concert tours, it doesn’t mean it’s all ‘out with the old’ in the world of sharps and flats.

The 2015 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony last Sunday highlights this strange new intersection of old established grandeur and new digital access. Below, we’ve collected some of the 2015 inductees, compiled some of their greatest performances from around the web. Check out the best way to capture them for keeps in our Supported Site Directory.

Happy listening!

  • Ringo Starr

    There are so many mythic stories and timeless Beatles performances it’s hard to pick just one. But for the true connoisseur, Ringo has his own mythology. Before the Rock Hall of Fame induction performance, it had been years since bandmates Paul and Ringo had played together. Their set at the ceremony is fun and includes cameos from other 2015 inductees. The YouTube video here is shot on some lucky audience member’s phone but the audio comes through clearly. Fire up Replay Media Catcher for the video and use Replay Music to save the track for your kids’ iPod.

How Replay Music, Our Audio Recorder for Music, helped me Discover a New Band

Recently I saw a fun commercial about the NFL draft (don’t ask me why I was watching a commercial on the NFL draft – my husband must have left ESPN on). It was this Deion Sanders Super Bowl Commercial.

I love the song they used!

Leon Sandcastle Commercial

I immediately wanted to hear more of the song they used in the commercial. A little bit of digging and I found the song, “This Head I Hold” by Electric Guest. Once I knew the song title, I opened Replay Music and went to Grooveshark and captured the song and other songs from Electric Guest. I also used Replay Music to get the song on my phone and I have been listening to it ever since. I am now an Electric Guest fan. And being the good fan that I am I also went to iTunes and supported the band by buying the song. All this thanks to Replay Music.
