Will Rigby - favorite songs & performances

WR, himself
A man of many talents, faces, hair styles.
Here's a compendium of some of Will's favorite recordings by other artists, on which he plays (and occasionally sings). For the most part, this collection was compiled by Will, but I threw in a small handful of picks.

ANYONE ELSE NOTICE WILL HAS REALLY GOOD TASTE IN WHO HE PLAYS WITH??*
*except Mojo Nixon, whose stuff is usually in bad taste — but in a really good way...

CLICK ON THE LINKS: many will take you to YouTube, while others will take you to artists' web sites, and still others will open iTunes links whereupon you can sample and/or purchase some of the music. A few are MP3s that were either free to begin with or authorized by the recording artist.

ENJOY!
