The best band to watch live?

Recommended Posts

Best band I've ever seen live is AC/DC (back in black tour)

 

Frank Zappa live was a blast too.

 

Iron Maiden, Saxon, and Judas Priest were really good (I saw them in the early 1980s)

Easy. Bigbang, a Norweian rock band. The guitarist/vocal did two stagedives because the first one was the second worst in the history of Norwegian music ever (the worst here) the second he did was pretty good.

For me:

 

Rolling Stones (back then and still today)

Fleetwood Mac (1979)

Deep Purple (reunion tour with Blackmore and Gillan)

Linda Rondstadt (1978 with one of the best bands ever - Waddy Watchel on a Les Paul - the only time he changed his guitars was to go acoustic)

Kiss

Deep Purple (reunion tour with Blackmore and Gillan)

 

I saw them on the Perfect Strangers Tour in 1984. Incredible. I will never forget the power of that band. Ian Gillian's voice. Roger Glover's thundering and moving bass lines. Ian Paice's drumming. Jon Lord on that Hammond organ. And of course Ritchie Blackmore's stratocaster guitar.

 

One of the best show's I've ever seen.

I may have gone with KISS but I missed their prime - late 70's early 80's.

I say:

 

Pink Floyd - London's Earl Court

Larry Carlton and Robben Ford

SRV - when he was clean and sober

Santana

Van Halen

Rush - moving pictures tour

Well, I'd have to say the Butthole Surfers. I've seen better bands with better musicians playing better songs, but I've never experienced an event that compared to the show I was at...

Almost forgot...

 

Albert King just months before he died. He opened for BB King, What A Night. I thought he was gonna be with us for a long time, the way he played. So much Vigor and Raw Energy. His '58 V flashed right on me, so did his gold tooth.

Runners up are Nashville Pu$$y, Southern Culture on the Skids and makeup-era KISS

Van Halen

 

Is that with or without David Lee Roth.

Because I've seen Van Hallen three times. Twice with DLR and once with Sammy. DLR and Eddie were great on stage together.

I don't know about today's bands but from the past...

 

Ted Nugent

The Who

The Rolling Stones

Van Halen

 

The past was better because Rock was accepted by everyone.

They coming back to the US soon? I just missed them a few months ago when they were playing here, and believe me, I wasn't happy about it at all. ](*,) They're my favorite band and I gotta see them live!
