STP at Soma in San Diego back when I was in High School... they were filming that night and used the footage several music videos... my whole crew and I were the big dicks on campus for a months after that.

Genesis, Invisible touch tour.

NIN, when they opened for Peter Murphy at a little club in Detroit.

Beach boys, only because I was 12, drunk, and high. Bad older sister and her hot friends.

Victor is the best bass player I've ever heard of. He's like the Chuck Norris of bass guitarists.

I can't believe I'm the first person to give this answer: the hands-down best LIVE band in the whole friggin' universe is the heart stoppin', pants droppin', house rockin', earth shakin', booty quakin', Viagra takin', love makin', air conditioner shakin', heart breakin', history makin', legendary, E STREET BAND.

Nobody else comes close.

I've seen a bunch, and I think the best live show was the Deftones.

No, wait - the best live show was the Blue Man Group. Saw them in NYC and in Jax, and they were amazing. NYC was the better show, smaller and more mind-fucky.

But as far as music I'd listen to, Deftones, 311, Metallica, SOAD, etc. in that order.

******' Slayer.

Duh.

All the rest is *****.

Recently saw Exodus and they were great... in a washed-up meth-head sort of way; still very tight, angry, loud, etc.

Blue Man Group, really? Saw 'em in Baltimore 2 years ago. Meh. One other that made the list that I'm shocked with. Red Hot Chili Peppers. They were horrible when I saw them at the WHFS Festival in Baltimore.

I'm a hair band guy and saw almost every one back in the '80s. I saw someone mention Poison. Funny thing is they ripped off their whole act from a local Balt-DC band Kix. Kix was the best live band ever. I probably saw them 30 times at the legendary Hammerjacks back in the day.

Great shows I've seen. AC/DC, Metallica for Master of Puppets tour, Scorpions, Iron Maiden. I've had fun at some hippie shows like Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. I saw Jimmy Buffet at Margaritaville in Key West when he just showed up and played a set for unsuspecting guests at the bar. The Firm (Jimmy Page, Paul Rodgers) was good and I got the biggest contact buzz of my life.

I've mellowed a bit in my old age and saw Pat Monahan (lead singer of Train) at a small venue in VA and he kicked ***. Great voice and he does an incredible cover of Led Zep's Whole Lotta Love.

AWESOME. What was that 1989? I got the shirt around here some where.

I also have to say Metallica with Queensryche opening for the ...And justice for all tour was great too.

Kiss never disappoints.

I also checked out Megadeath last year in a small club, they rocked!

Saw him 2 years ago with the Flecktones - going to again 12/13. The man can play.

I saw X, Zappa and Sprigsteen/E-Street all in the same month years ago - that was an amazing stretch.

naarlevin - agreed with arcade fire. i saw them in here in 2004, in a smallish venue, and it was the best show i'd ever been to.


until i saw radiohead. everything about that show was incredible.
