30 greatest live rock acts

I don't usually like online lists, but this is one where I can't argue much with anything on here.  Sadly seeing all these acts would probably cost a grand or two.
I disavow anyone in the movement involved in any illegal,unethical, sexist, or racist behavior. However, I don't have the energy or time to investigate each person and case, and a lack of individual disavowals for each incident should not be construed as condoning such behavior.

I've noticed that I can copy a sound bitstream without a problem.  Copying someone's ticket leads to problems.

There is no Gogol Bordello on that list.  I've seen a lot of concerts, and they are one of the best live shows out there.  I'm disappointed.

I've seen Gogol and while they do put on a great a show, it's not even close to Rush or Maiden.

22 - Aerosmith (seen them twice)
21 - McCartney (going to see him in 2 weeks)
14 - Bon Jovi (saw them many, many years ago)
13 - Roger Waters (saw Pink Floyd in '87)
12 - Foo Fighters (going to see them in September)
3 - GnR (saw them many years ago - opened for Aerosmith)

WOOT!

Would love to see the Stones and U2

There's some pretty disparate acts on that list; wonder what the criteria are.

22 - Aerosmith, saw them on the Pump tour.
14 - Bon Jovi, saw them a long time ago...didn't much care for them.  Skid Row was the opening act and was much better in my opinion (at the time)...but I was somewhere like 16 at the time.
8  - Metallica, saw them on the Justice tour.  One of my favorite concerts ever.
7  - AC/DC, saw them somewhere around '89.  Love the cannons.
3  - Guns N Roses, saw them on the Illusion tour @ '91.  Soundgarden opened for them.  Great show, don't remember the second half...or getting home for that matter.


I would love to see Maiden and Rush.  But I haven't been to a concert in a dogs age.  Nominally, I'm a metalhead...but I'd feel like Brian Posehn in "Metal By Numbers"

I have to hand it to Iron Maiden.  They look, sound, and perform like guys in their mid 30's not mid+ 50's.  Bruce Dickinson warms up by singing their set while rollerblading.  Their latest album sucked tho, not one really good song on it.

People are so used to criticizing religion in whispers, that a normal voice, sounds like a shout.
