I want to mention three channels on YouTube I’m following. Each has something special and keeps me returning.
I discovered Todd Grande by chance seeking out some psychological connection between Daniel Johns and Kurt Cobain. The recent podcast on the Newcastle singer has the Courtney Love quote, “So this young guy from Silverchair looks like my dead husband Kurt and sings like Eddie Vedder”. A cursory glance shows a plethora of posts including those of the 27 Club (Brian Jones, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jimmy Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse). Grande analysis of subject is so information rich I’m constantly hitting the space bar just to keep up. A combination of celebrity subject, cool analysis with hefty content all at breakneck speed that’s somehow irresistible.
Rob Cubbon is a superb communicator, someone who is able to explain everything about generating online income to his loyal followers. In the process he gently leads them to various courses and links to his website. If you get there you will experience a streamlined and hermetically sealed universe of html perfection. I joined his community via a hotlink from a Kindle publication. There are many videos on YouTube that are ingenuine and dross so Rob’s channel is a welcome relief. He even vlogs his personal development.
And finally, I was surprised to discover Rick Beato’s music channel. Mostly I’m at odds with today’s music scene with its reliance on play counts, streaming, spin doctoring et al. But that’s probably a reflection of my use by date. Rick stopped me in my tracks. Here’s a guy who seems to speak my language. Perhaps I’m not so weird after all. His enthusiasm is refreshing and his knowledge enormous. Even Joni Mitchell watches his channel sending him a signed record.
