I am surprised that no-one has posted the simply fucking amazing The Smiths yet!

How did you like them ? I saw them live back in 2005. The skill they have is bloody amazing, and the music is fantastic but I have to say Mikael ?kerfeld is not the man I would invite to be a guest speaker at a dinner party...I know not everyone can be as funny as Jerry Seinfeld but listening to him between songs was almost painful, he was that boring.

This was also the general opinion regarding the whole gig for me and a friend of mine: Opeth for me works best listened, not watched; they are not the most exciting live band in the world. Not a bad gig, but it was "just" them playing really, really well. Like you were in a recording studio.

^They where brilliant.. And he didn't do much talking. He sounded bored when he had to talk, so i guess he really doesn't like that shit..

Heheh, figures. I guess he has learned and perhaps gotten some feedback about that :p

Bruce Springsteen, now there is a man who knows how to take the crowd. The best gig I have ever seen, summer of 2008. It wasn't a gig, it was a 3? hour rock 'n' roll ceremony, 33 songs, the longest set The Boss has played since 1984 I think, and of course he played "Santa Claus is coming to town" also a record for how early in the year the song has been performed by the E-Street Band :mrgreen:

But Metallica has done loads of great stuff afterwards the whole napster failure, including apologizing for their douchbaggery.

Lars Ulrich on Napster said:
I wish that I was more...you know, I felt kind of ambushed by the whole thing because I didn't really know enough about what we were getting ourselves into when we jumped. [...] We didn't know enough about the kind of grassroots thing, and what had been going on the last couple of months in the country as this whole new phenomenon was going on. We were just so stuck in our controlling ways of wanting to control everything that had to do with METALLICA. So we were caught off guard and we had a little bit of a rougher landing on that one than on other times than when we just blindly leap. But you know, I'm still proud of the fact that we did leap... and I took a lot of hits and it was difficult.
