WELL, the end of the year is nigh and we’re compiling this year’s “best of”, “greatest hits and misses” and “definitive 2011 music moments”.
Overall, this year was a great year for music. Not only did we get to see some cool international acts passing by our shores, from The Drums to Shakira to The National, but we also had a flood of local releases from Seyra to Anuar Zain to Cheating Sons to Stefanie Sun. There wasn’t a week in which there wasn’t something exciting going on in the music biz.
For me, not only did I have the opportunities to talk to some musical heroes this year, such as rock legends Alice Cooper and Ramli Sarip, and so-cool-they’re-hot people like Hayley Williams and Kylie Minogue; I also got a chance to perform in a music video with the ever-cool Kit Chan, the always hot Alemay Fernandez, the lovely Joi Chua, the bubbly Maggie Teng and more; I got a chance to get onstage with Typewriter; as well as jam with Pat Chng, Kevin Mathews, Chee Wah Yong and Tan Boon Gee in The Fast Colors.
But what about you? What are your thoughts about music this past year? We want you to be a part of our story: Tell us your favourite music moment of 2011 (the list follows).
