It’s finally here! We filmed this video last September. Like so many things, it’s gotten caught in the crossfire of scheduling difficulties and other changes. But it’s done and the reaction so far has been great!
I’m very proud of this, the first time I’ve ever conceptualized a video and brought it to life (with the help of some amazing people, the least of which are my musicians and dancers and the director, Kevin Mackall). Everyone thought I was nuts when I brought up the idea of placing each member of my trio with his own bellydancing doppelganger- then using that as a springboard to recreating one of the coolest, most recognizable videos of all time. But lo and behold!
You can now watch it on YouTube. Please feel free to share the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCqvUjJTal8. You can also read the (abreviated) story via Guitar World, who was kind enough to premier the video on their website yesterday:
