either just showed up or was a special guest but as kind of a hush hush thing so the audience didnt know till it happened.
i have never been to one where it was unannounced. i went to see zappa plays zappa twice and i went to specific shows cause steve vai was at both,
nappy brock was at one and terry bozzio as at one.
there are some that just happen and it is magic.
this is les claypool with #ing stanley clarke. clarke did not just show up but the fans got a treat when les calls him out and he comes out playing
one of les's bass.
i have no video of this but jack white was doing a concert many years back and apparently bob dylan just showed up and they played together.
the one that really stands out is trey anastasio and santana from 03.
so trey was doing an anastasio band show and the word i hear is santana just showed up and it kind of turned into the anastasio/santana show.
they released a dvd called live at the warfield and it is amazing. i think the dvd is on moratorium so you cant buy it but most of it is on youtube.
trust me when i say this is some of the most fantastic improvised guitar conversations you will ever hear.
can you think of any?
im not talking like when elton john and billy joel tour their duel pianos for $500 a ticket. i mean when the fans have no idea what s about to happen
and they are in the middle of a magic moment.

More than once.
Fantomas is a good one to catch live.
They pull in some good opening acts.
Estradasphere, Secret Chiefs 3, Melt Banana and The Locust to name a few that blew my socks off.
Sorry im off topic but...
I saw Secret Chiefs 3 open up for Les Claypool in Nashville years ago. They were insanely awesome!
