Robin Williams – Live @ The Met

This post isn’t music related. As everyone is all too aware Robin Williams took his own life months ago and that hit me a lot harder then than I ever expected it to for a myriad of reasons. I held off on posting this for a long time just to get passed the outpouring of memorial posts immediately following his passing and because I just couldn’t do it.

I’ve enjoyed watching, hearing and reading every single piece of Robin Williams career that I could. He always made me laugh even if I didn’t wholly understand the material as a little kid or I had seen the same piece a thousand times. When I found out he’d hung himself I was especially devastated, it was like a piece of my childhood died.

Anyway, Robin’s performance at the Metropolitan Opera House isn’t new (it was recorded in 1986), it isn’t rare (there are thousands of clips on youtube), and it might not be his best work but it means the most to me (especially that bit at the end). Hopefully the DMCA demons leave it be for just a little bit. Enjoy.
