    Default R&R Hall of Fame 25TH Anniversary Concert

    Anyone else catch this on HBO? I'm watching it now and it's quite good. So far it's been real Rock & Roll. Not the crap the institution had been inducting as of late. Watching Metallica perform now. Good stuff and I believe this was produced by Tom Hanks. Recorded live in NYC at Madison Square Garden. I'm going to watch for a replay so I can copy this on my DVD recorder.

    I watched it last month at work. I am not sure if it was the Comcast cable or what. But the audio sucked majorly! Like when Springsteen and Fogerty were playing together, all I could hear was Fogerty. It was like the other mics were turned off or something. I need to check it out again at home on DirecTV.

    It was available with HBO On Demand. A two part HBO special. I just finished recording it. Some really good performances. I can only copy in 2 channel, but the audio is solid. I spot checked my copied discs and they look and sound pretty good.

    I did some checking and there is a 9 disc DVD set of this available with lots of extras. Here's the link if anyone's interested.

    been watching this over and over for the past few weeks. some really good performances and interesting match up of different musicians. BB King was awesome. Simon and Garfunkel was cool too. Stevie Wonder really had a tough time with one of MJ"s songs.

    It has played in DD on my system off the HD DVR

    Tom Morello did a kick ass guitar solo. That alone would have been worth the price of admission.

    It wasn't bad until Garfunkel Tried to sing "Bridge Over Troubled Waters."

    Well, considering the age of some of these artists, I think he did pretty darn good. ;)
