I may be bias, but Rush is the greatest band of all time. They kick f**king ass live, and there is no better band than Rush live. They have high energy, sound great, and have never had a bad show. I have seen Rush live 12 times, but the greatest show that I have seen is Rush in Philadelphia during the R40 tour. There was a lot of energy, they sounded great, and you can not beat a set list that spans through their whole career and ends with Natural science, Jacobs ladder, Hemispheres, Cygnus X1, Xanadu, and 2112 all in a row.

Hi,

I don't have a favorite ... but many things stand out.

Nektar - first US tour at the Santa Monica Civic

Hawkwind - Space Ritual Tour when it first came out, also at the Santa Monica Civic

Pink Floyd - 1972 Live at the Hollywood Bowl, in the days of the QUAD sound, and its beauty.

Tangerine Dream at the Greek Theater - On the album USA Live with pictures of the trees on fire by the lazers ... awesome!

Mississipi Charles Bevel - Outstanding voice and beautiful material by a guy that disdained the music business and continued working as a technician for the LA based KPFK. Like the other friends of theirs from there, The Firesign Theater, the material was excellent and well presented and totally out-a-sight!

King Crimson - Seattle 2015 With the 3 drummers, and my eyes closed, the whole thing was experiencially ... nirvana! You have to learn to fly with music, and this did not disappoint in any way. The only thing missing? Some "No Pussyfooting" material ... for the inner quiet!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you will, eventually, find your own art inside! Try it!

Those two at the now practically abandoned 'Civic. That must have been grand.
