Not taking about music here but stage performance. I would say red hot chili peppers #1. They are a blast to watch especially flea

And George strait the worse ( even kicker people tell me that)

Best: UFO 30 years ago with Schenker and Way
Worst: Bob Seger- most boring damn band and singer I've ever seen. No idea how he made it.

Worst was Lynyrd Skynyrd at NAS Jax in the 90s. Johnny was a sniveling bitch who threatened to leave because of aircraft noise at 10:00. Quiet hours were to start at 13:00 and they weren't going to play until 17:00. They were ******* hammered during the performance. They'd mumble a little at the beginning of a song, then Johnny would stumble around the stage until the next song. Wrong brother was on that Convair.

Alice Cooper had great live stage shows with several outfit changes with choreographed dancers....


Most country bands, they keep it simple....

Outta the handful of concerts I went to, surprisingly to me, Godsmack was the best entertainment. Maybe because of the venue, but there was no dumbass flames or fireworks. At one point they wheeled out another complete drum set and the lead singer and drummer played just them. The singer was every bit as good as the drummer. Sevendust and someone else was there, it was a good show.

Best: Trans Siberian Ochestra a year ago. Spectacular.

Worst: Tragically Hip in Ottawa about 25 years ago. Gordon Doney (May he RIP) was stoned and couldn’t stop talking. This was on Canada Day just before a Quebec separation vote. Remember it like it was yesterday.

Best was Molly Hatchet at Kidnappers in Charlotte NC. There was a balcony over the bar standing on 4x4 posts. This thing was seriously overloaded with people and during Flirtin' with Disaster, everyone on it was jumping in unison. At some point, I look down and realized the posts weren't actually bolted down. The whole balcony was jumping 4 inches off the ground! Helluva show but it's amazing no one died.

Worst - Ozzy Osborne. The stage was badass but Ozzy just stood there and sang. Occasionally he would clap his hands, walk to the other side of the stage, and stand there and sing.

Haven't been to many but....

August 2, 1986 - Loved Whitney Houston at Jones Beach Theater on her Greatest Love Tour. Was phenominal. Of course, this is before she ran with that piece of ****, Bobby Brown and became a drug addict and lost her voice.

April.7, 1987 Skid Row - Before anyone even heard of this band, Skid Row opened for Bon Jovi during his Slippery When Wet Tour. Only played 4 songs but they rocked the coliseum.

Same night, Bon Jovi performed at the height of his album's tremendous success. Was a great concert.

Las Vegas - Inside the Venetian, Human Nature is a band out of Australia that sings Motown and they put on an incredible show. Endorsed by Smokey Robinson at their first audition singing acapella. I really enjoyed this show.

That is all.

Well, I'm the forum's biggest BNL fan so you should know where I stand. The boys really like to have fun in their shows and I don't know how Ed freestyle raps like he does. I'd bet a lot of the ghetto thug "musicians" couldn't rap with him.

Worst was that guy (forget his name) from Steely Dan. I've never been a fan of their music. Just sounds like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. Friend is a huge fan so I took her one year when he came. I figured it's live so I might appreciate it more than just recorded music. Nope. Spent over an hour just walking around the Hard Rock because that was more entertaining to me.

Best:
No Doubt back in 1996
311 - 2001
Bush - small venue - EXCELLENT SHOW
Goo Goo Dolls


WORST-
Van Halen 1983 - DL Roth was so wasted he didn't sing most of the songs, just held the mic out towards the crowd....
Lynyrd Skynyrd - over an hour late, sucked, and their draw (redneck bikers) did not make a pleasurable show - left after 5th song.
My middle school band -- Live concert from 1978 - the bass drum fell off the stand and rolled off the stage but not before rolling over the 1st chair flute player.
