Venue . A Radio Station In Amsterdam Holland

Artist. A Female Singer/Songwriter and her band.

They are performing in a cramped small studio. Even the drummer is shoved up into a corner with his back to the band.

The Radio Presenters reaction at the end sums it up.

Enjoy.

B. B. King back in the 80's. The man was fantastic on a guitar.
My second would be Pink Floyd.

Tough one, I've seen so many great Shows, Iggy Pop with 6 people in the audience, Early Stray Cats, Pere Ubu, Ramones, Gun Club, Swans, Sonic Youth, Credence Clearwater Revival (1st Concert I ever saw) Rolling Stones....but a Band that packed a punch until the end and one of my fav's "The Cramps".

On one of their last Tours. Still f'ing kik'n.

Roger Waters , The Wall Live , I saw it at the O2 arena London and it was without a shadow of a doubt the most incredible show I've ever seen.

From the O2 show



Audio and visual excellence.

Jan 1978 - Freezing my butt off, waiting to see Bob Seger. It was worth it.
February 15, 1980 - Rush at Roberts Stadium, Evansville Indiana. I was in the front, squashed up against the stage.

Can't really rate my concert experiences on "best", I guess because it was all "best" at the time. Ted Nugent, Styx, Boston, Aerosmith, Led Zepplin, AC/DC, I can't think of a band in that era that I didn't see.
But, it was all good.

Oh. John Mellencamp, when he first started out as John Cougar. He rocked as the opening act and the headliner almost got booed off, cause we wanted him back on stage. Now if I can just remember who the headliner was. All that "2nd hand smoke" ya know. I swear I didn't inhale.

25 years ago i was a sailor on a small Danish coaster , we had a trip to a small harbour belonging to a small town in Ireland.

That town had 20 houses, an outhouse and a pub, we of course went straight for the pub.

From outside the pub looked like a record store with music posters covering windows.

As we entered the 4 of us, we where greeted by two males, the bartender and a native citizen, we ordered 4 pints and sat in a far corner expecting a slow night.

To our pleasant surprise within an hour the pub was full of people to the absolute limit, and a folk band sat in the corner next to us and played the most amazing Irish folk music i have ever heard, to long into the night.

Most amazing atmosphere.

I have no youtube to show or any band name, only this story

Hmmmm I can't pick one but three of the most memorable would be

Paul McCartney three years ago.

Nine Inch Nails lights in the sky tour. The special effects were outrageous at this show.

Tool back in 2010. The set list was incredible.

Saw the Misfits in 2002 and met Jerry Only. Great show.

The Cramps are still the best bands that I got to see live. I'm pretty jealous you got to see Gun Club live. They are one of my favorite bands of all time.

I saw Dimebag's last full concert. He was with Damage Plan and they decided to fill multiple pitchers of whiskey and send them into the crowd via "designated surfers." Having seen people get dropped on their heads before, these guys were meticulously handled in a way that ensured people's cups got filled.

Extreme shredding ensued.

I took a train and the seedy subway from Grand Central to the Knitting Factory in order to see Ignite. I got to jump on the back of my fellow brothers and I sang through Zoli's microphone while he held it up to my face. Amazing...

Frog Brigade with multiple drum kits. Each member rotated instruments mid-song and tried to outplay the other. One of the best and most creative improvisational performances I've seen.

Victor Wooten's hands started to smoke during his opening song. He was late to come on and the people were kind of pissed. He genuinely apologized by playing the best bass performance I've ever seen in my life.

STOMP, MOMIX and Pilobolus for the performing arts. The MOMIX black-light show was unforgettable.

Buckethead has left my jaw hanging numerous times. A little stoic, but mind melting nonetheless.

When Joe Satriani and Dream Theater played together. That one's up there.

I saw the Gun Club maybe 4-5 times, usually with Nick Cave or the Cramps.
Here is a interesting Documentary on Jeffrey Lee Pierce: Ghost on a Highway

Don't want to bang the gang but that is a live studio recording.

I think he means without audio engineering (no fine tuning or editing after the recording.)

Alice in Chains - Phoenix, AZ.
William Duvall was lead singer not Layne, but he was fantastic live and he had a bad cold and still sounded better than any other band I heard live.

Saw the Ramones once, met the singer at a small Venue in Boston; he was sitting in my seat when I returned from the bar and chatted with me for a bit - he even dedicated a song to me, that was special! Never forget it!
