    Oh¡¡ shall I make a serious move here to deffend the honour of the glorious fathers of heavy methal? My battle for Zepp left me exhausted after so many enemies around.:(

    Nadal doesn´t hold a candle(stick) to Ozzy...although, seeing Nadal´s bottlemania I guess Ozzy would have thought of him when writting P-A-R-A-N-O-I-D

    Seem pretty up themselves. Live,there are other bands that wipe the floor with them. I guess they never went to those shows

    No band holds a candle to live Led
    Improvisation and engagement and could play for hours

    That I've seen "live": Queen at Live Aid in 1985. Mercury had total audience control, "Queen Fan" or not. Flawless, powerful flowing set of classics and recently released material ("Hammer to Fall" and "Radio Gaga").

    Aside from watching it "live," The Who Live at Leeds, as mentioned previously. It covers Tommy to The Who's version of Summertime Blues. The Who blows any band off the stage. Their Live Aid performance, in comparison, while powerful, was rough, and without Moon the Loon. The Who wasn't quite "The Who."

    Ok, so this is tough , what a hard question to answer..
    Cause one has a few personal favs form experience and then the hearsay and hearlisten from live albums and recordings.

    I saw the Ramones once live and to be honest they were so alive and real in their music that it was quite convincing.
    At the time i was into bands like The Outfield, Mike and The Mechanics,ELO, Boston and Kansas so the contrast of style and play was HUGE.

    Still that concert stands out.

    Also Jeff Healey was great back in the days to see + hear.
