For me, rock'n'roll would never sound like "The whole thing was for lack of a better term...scripted and sterile" which is how you described it in your first post.... I'm just trying to keep up... hey, if you had a great time, awesome. I've seen the Eagles at least 20 times (but not since 1980) and it was always a good show. Back then I don't believe you could use flash photography at ANY rock show I attended (hundreds) and recording the show would have gotten you arrested or beat up or both... But that was true at any rock show. Jazz shows were more open about that stuff... and the grateful dead..
