Hendrix, Zeppelin, Journey, etc, basically all that old stuff. Korn from time to time, sometimes even Eminem. Classical, from Wagner to John Williams... etc.

sometimes even Eminem.

I don't think Eminem qualifies as a band AE!  John Williams either (though I certainly dig his work).   ;)

I definitely enjoy listening to Journey as well, so good call on that one though!

Eminem isn't a band, right, but John Williams isn't **** without an orchestra, so I think he qualifies as a "band" to some extent.  :-\

Fair enough, I'll give you that one!  We'll just say that the Boston Pops is (was) his "band"!   8)

I posted this over at Galactic Hunter last night when I got home from the show...here it is my pseudo review of 2 Pearl Jam concerts :-*

Wow is my head spinning right now.  Just got back from my second show in as many nights...

Every PJ show I go to has something I have remembered for ever and the last two have been no exception

Fargo

We got the Fan Club line around 11 yesterday morning and were about the 50th person in line.  We waited around drinking beer inside the Fargo dome until the handed out tickets at 3:30.  My brother and me were giddy with anticipation as we stepped up the window and pulled 4 seats in 4th row center stage.  My jaw absolutely hit the floor.  I basically crapped my pants when I saw where we were sitting.  I took around 20 shots on a disposable camera so once I get it developed you all can see.

The show was good but not great, Ed was sick and had a sore throat and so he wasn't in the highest of spirits.  Jeff's family was in attendence and so they kept showing them in the crowd.  The absolute highlight for me though was during Crazy Mary...

Take a Bottle, Drink it Down, Pass it Around

Ed passed his wine bottle out into the crowd and it snakes right to where we were sitting.  I took a long pull off the bottle and was in absolute bliss.  Baba closed the set which was f'n amazing and something I have always wanted to hear live.  Two of my other favorites were Porch and Rearview which cannot be beat live.  It was great fun though and would have been awesome if Ed was feeling better

Saint Paul

I just walked in the door and like I said my head is still swimming.  It was seriously like Pearl Jam's greatest hits tonight off the top of my head I know they played:

Wishlist
Betterman
Small Town
Rearviewmirror
Given to Fly
I am Mine
Alive
Black
Immortality
Daughter
Even Flow
Corduroy
State of Love and Trust
Elderly Woman
Save You

Ed you could tell was still a little sick but he sang his guts out mainly because the crowd was absoultely amazing.

Someone threw a cell phone at him and he picked up and sang Alive into it...

Somne guy asked him to sing Lukin and he said his voice couldn't handle it then asked if he knew the words, he then got to come up on stage and proceeded to just go nuts and sang the heck out the song.  Him and Ed then did about 5 or 6 jumps to end it...

As we were nearing the end I leaned over to my brother and we were both just sweating and dying from jumping and dancing and screaming and singing and I said...

"I don't care if they play Rockin in the Free World or Yellow Ledbetter...that would make this the greatest show ever"

Out comes Rockin, up go the house lights and the crowd just goes nuts.  One of my all time favorite songs and they just nail it, people are pogoing all over and clapping and screaming along and the crowd goes nuts at the end thinking it's the end.  Mike hold up his hand and goes into Yellow Ledbetter and I just about collapse.  This was my 4th show and I have never heard this song live.  It is probably my all time favorite song and it will always always have a special place in my heart and take me back to 1993-1994 again.  It was absoultely amazing and by exceeds anything I have seen before from them.

I sat in the 17th row tonight...we slept in today since we got home last night around 4 AM.

One thing people don't realize until you see them live to is how awesome Mike McCready is...he makes the bands show.  He pointed at me in Fargo and we smiled it was pretty cool.

I am going to my last show of 2003 on Saturday in Alpine Valley, Wisconsin...looking forward to it but after tonight I have seen it all and have one for ever

Keep on Rockin' in the Free World!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right now I'm playing the new Metallica.  And, I can't seem to get the first Clutch out of my system.  If you don't have this one, for the love of Shiva H. Vishnu, get it!!!
