    For rock music, I don't think anyone can beat what was captured on The Allman Brothers Band at Fillmore East.

    The best I've seen personally, was probably Immortal about ten years ago.

    Always enjoyed the live versions of No Quarter from Led Zeppelin, a jazz/classical fusion side of them you didn't really see in the studio work(at least until that10 Ribs outtake came out recently), John Paul Jones was a hell of a piano player.

    This version of Dizzy Dizzy by Can from 77 achieves the impossible and get's a west german student to tap his foot slightly...

    I can only speak to the concerts I have seen, but Alice in Chains was excellent live. The Red Hot Chili Peppers were also. I also enjoyed Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Van Halen.

    I got free tickets to Leonard Cohen a few years ago and was blown away by his performance I think he was 76 at the time
    Also saw nine inch nails live and it was awesome performance and sound quality but the crowd was weird and made the concert boring

    But my favourite concert was anti nowhere league. A bad old school punk band. I was drunk as hell and there were Mohawks and punks everywhere. I didn't even know there was a punk scene in Sydney but everyone got into it. Dressed up and got wasted. good times!

    I'm hoping he does another one of his spoken word/acoustic tours soon, I'd even be willing to travel to catch one of those shows. I've watched/had his previous tours on in the background for music many many times, he sounds great and picks a good mix of songs to cover along with the Slipknot/Stone Sour material.

    The bass on that mix
    <{anton}>


    It's such a little difference but the way Billy sings the breakdown in Bullet is a lot better than the studio version
