This one is a bit of a deep cut.

I posed this random tidbit in Random thoughts...but figures it should've been here.

So I saw the U2 Concert yesterday in Toronto, msasive and the coolest stage ever, it was also really cool how people from their apartments were watching and "participating" from turning their lights on and off rapidly.

They are a great band live, but I will rank it as the lowest on from the concerts that I went to, I mean none of the others had 60,000 people there, but the other bands just felt better.

I mentioned to my buddy I was with "Hey the guitarists swaps out guitars every song like Steve Miller does."
His response was "Don't mention U2 and Steve Miller in the same sentance."

First of all, since when are U2 Gods of rock, tehy are talented and good, but I still don't think they are up to The Who's level. Also, Steve Miller is an AMAZING guitarist, and from what I saw at the U2 concert Edge isn't as good (then again concerts don't usually represent that).
But maybe the lack of really "showy" playing is why I didn't like it as Rush's Neil Peart's 10 minute drum solo, or Steve Millers dualing harmonicas, or Bachman Cummings (Singer guitarist from The Guess Who and BTO), or The Who's little solos and crazy antics thrown in.

^IMO a live concert is where you can see how good a musician really is. Take someone like Jari M?enp?? from Wintersun, he plays more complex parts while singing than Edge has done in his whole career. And the shit he is playing while not singing is fucking amazing. And he rarely misses a note too!
I have posted this before but compare this to Edge...

Karoug is so, so right here. In the studio, each 4-5 minute song can take a month to record. On stage, there is no editing, no second takes. It seems to me that those considered the best guitar players, drummers, etc., are usually on bands considered among the best live acts. Sure, there's exceptions to that, but generally speaking that's the case.

Laura's voice has some real gravitas, one of the few females in metal that doesn't exude shtick.

Zakk Wylde playing Ozzy Osbourne songs that Randy Rhoads originally did pisses me off no end.
He adds in too many little things of his own, and ffs the pinch harmonics are irritating as all hell. He really should leave it alone and play it normally.
Fair enough if the originals had pinch harmonics, but no, there are more pinch harmonics than even a fucking Killswitch Engage or In Flames song.

That really grinds my gears.
