    Default Excellent Live Performances you've heard . . .

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WiRLHBAxrU

    Not a major fan of counting crows but this is pretty good. What other live performances have made you lose it?

    This one is repeat on this forum but definitely worth a listen.

    I saw the Black Crowes at a small auditorium a few years back. Excellent.

    Saw Chris Cornell a few months ago in Columbus and I'm still in awe. I have been listening to Soundgarden (Cornell's band in the 90s) in both of our cars ever since due to that experience. The best rock singer of all time, in my opinion.

    EDIT:
    Just thought I'd throw this in here for anyone not familiar with Chris Cornell. This is a song written by Soundgarden that shows what Cornell is made of. He sounded just as good in concert which blew my mind, considering this song is over 15 years old and he still has his voice. This song was also voted the #1 song of the 1990s by a large European alternative publication and it ranks right up there with my favorites of the 90s as well. Forgive the horrible sound quality. He starts singing a little after 1:20. Yes, you owe it to yourself to listen. Don't worry, it's not anti-Christian at all (Cornell is Catholic). He's singing about famous *******s that are exploiting that symbol as to imply that they're either a deity or persecuted somehow by their public.

    Back in highschool I saw Roger Waters play at Gund Arena in Cleveland, OH. That was the first time I ever heard a live band sound fantastically better than their produced CD. It was amazing!

    I also went to a Santana concert with my Dad a few years back in Columbus, OH. He's abig fan and got front row seats. Santana handed me his guitar pick. His picks are the size of silver dollars.

    I saw Bush at a bar that could only hold 300 people! That was amazing. Gavin sat down next to my girlfriend and sang to her . . . she yelled his name for months every time we had sex. I had to leave her because of it.

    Best day of live music was seeing Peter Rowan in a 20x40 foot tent at a local community college, then driving downtown to seventh row center seats for Herbie Hancock.

    The best live music experience for me has been attending Merlefest. It's a 4 day festival of Americana music put on by Doc Watson every spring in the beautiful hills of North Carolina. There are some of the biggest names in folk, bluegrass, traditional country, blues, and rock there every year. The most memorable moments for me have been The Wilders, a traditional country act, seeing John Prine and having a shooting star go over the stage during Illegal Smile, and Bela Fleck shooting me a dirty look when I snuck up front to take his picture.

    Rush-last summer

    Cheap Trick- home town boys play a lot around here

    Pistol Pete- Local area incl. Chicago blues player that is a cross between Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Guy (he plays a lot at Buddy Guys Legends in Chicago) and Stevie Ray Vaughn. How he has never made it out of this town I'll never know. Explosive talent and real hardcore, heavy bluesman.

    A video from Big Cities right here in Rockford IL



    At Buddy Guys Legends in Chicago



    And finally in Poland



    My buddy plays drums sometimes when Pete plays in Rockford which is about once a week

    Small venue was The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band at a place called the Frog Hop in St Joe,Mo.

    The warm up act was a dude sitting on the stage playing a banjo,singing pure b.s. lyrics,with a hat on that had an arrow going through it...aka Steve Martin.

    This was around 1969 or so.

    The best large venue show I had the pleasure to see was Pink Floyd performing DSOTM at the Civic Arena in Kansas City...this was around 1972

    Meatloaf on the Bat out of Hell Tour in the Seattle Paramount theater for 99 cents. We had no idea who he was, but the price was right

    Jackson Browne in the Seattle Coluseium. Nobody would leave, so he ended up played a song while the arena lights were on.

    Eagles hell Freezes Over tour in the Tacoma Dome.

    A whole bunch more too.
    My equipment sig felt inadequate and deleted itself.
