    Fun fact: This piece by Coltrane was a major influence on the song Light my Fire by The Doors.

    Van - Poetic Champions Compose - Did Ye Get Healed

    He plays lead Sax and sings the Lead vocal as well.

    I use to think of the piano as my favorite instrument (even played it when I was younger) however it's been replaced by the Sax.

    In large part, it's due to my love of Jazz and because of musicians like Van Morrison.

    The best guitar riffs ever, particularly the one at the end of the song.

    Pink Floyd is always a favorite. Comfortably Numb is always a great listen.

    As is the entire Dark Side of the Moon album of course.

    Speaking of the Sax, who can forget the late great Clarence Clemons?

    I always wanted to see Bruce Springsteen & E Street Band next time they go on tour but I know without Clarence it just won't quite be the same.

    Clarence's solo starts at about 4:30.
