Evolution Series: #9 “Immortality”
About the Episode
Episode Release Date: July 2nd, 2020
It’s Evolution, baby! In this episode we take on the task of dissecting the evolution of Immortality – a song that does not have a single bad version to its name. We’ll go through the early origins of the song and the time period in which it was written, why it was written, and that one powerful version of it from the Orpheum Theater that still takes people’s breath away. The performances from that point on have changed drastically, but its always been a song you could feel in the room, whether it’s the emotional reverb from Mike’s guitar or the Keith Moon-style drumming from Jack. We dig deep into classic versions of this song and take it from when it was a big fish in the small theaters to nowadays, where it fills the atmosphere at legendary venues the likes of Wrigley Field, and coming full circle at Fenway Park.
