    These three shows are a goldmine of the 70s and 80s. It was a great time for live music.

    Here’s Stevie Wonder in his 1974 prime with an absolutely smoking backup band. Holy crap!

    First time I saw Les Claypool was when my then teenage son got hold of this Rockpalast show on a very unofficial VHS cassette. Way out of my usual musical comfort zone, but I was hooked and I've seen him in London a good few times since.

    This is a Masterpiece. I don't know, was Sight and Sound a TV show or something? Anyway it's one of my favorite TV music moments of all time.

    Oh yeah, there is so much good stuff from those shows. :cool:

    I could be here all day, but here's a few that spring to mind:

    OGWT 1976. Gary Moore, Phil Lynott, Scott Gorham, Cozy Powell & Don Airey, and Moore is playing Peter Green's les Paul (with a broken string). Wonderful.


    OGWT 1973. The Wailers, perfect.


    OGWT 1975 Be-Bop Deluxe. Bill Nelson...


    Rockpalast 1982 Rory Gallagher. Still makes me shiver...Rory shows how it's done.

    What kind of crazy upside down world was it in 1972 or so when he opened for the Rolling Stones??

    Should have been the other way around! Goodness.

    SW had "it" as early as age 13 with Fingertips Parts I and II.

    Yep, Bill is a big deal for me too :cool:

    Yep, it was. Some decent footage on the utube, like this great performance from AC/DC in 1977:

    I love watching and listening to Angus Young. Just a great tone and vibrato for hard Rock and Roll.

    And you could not create a better singer for this band than Bon Scott.

    It must really have been something to see these guys live then

    Yep, i was lucky enough to catch them the end of 1976 in the Marquee club. I remember that the energy was incredible.

    I wasn't really old enough to be in there, but I never had any problems getting into bars, etc, back then. I would have been almost 18 then anyway..:rolleyes:

    An occasional guilty pleasure of mine is every few years-

    a bass player that now plays with me, gets together with an amazing female drummer AND ead rock singer that he used to play with in the '90's, to do just a one-off pickup gig, if we can find one...
    Now I'm a good blues, old R&R/ Dead player and singer,
    but she Meri, comes from a much harder ( than me!) '80's and '90's rock and grunge place- so we figure out a set of common ground.

    Top of my list with her:

    Led Zeppelin- Custard Pie
    AC/DC - Dirty Deeds

    She absolutely tears up the drums and vocals! Pure Power!
