Pearl Jam is great but nowhere close to top 5 of the last 50 years. Maybe the 90s, maybe.
I agree with the rest except for The Doors. They really weren't that good. Hendrix is great and all but I don't find myself seeking him out. His guitar playing is so over the top and wild. I've always been...

I pay the $10/mo and think it's worth it. I mainly use it at work, but I also have it dialed into my home stereo through my media server.
Like others said, it has 90% of the stuff when I look for it and illegally downloading music has almost ended for me. There are a few rarities that I can't...

You almost have to see them live to understand. The crowd and the music come together to create a unique experience and it's certainly enhanced by hallucinogenic drugs (but what isn't?). Listening to live shows on your iPod or computer won't convert anyone.
However phish isn't unique in creati...

I've seen him twice. The first time he didn't seem to be into it. Turns out I think he was going through rehab at the time.
I saw him again last year and it was an incredible show. He played the baby grand on a few songs. He's really honed his skill to where he's a great performer these days. ...

Paul McCartney played Tulsa last night.
He started at 8:30 and ended at 11:30, played 46 songs total.
That's pretty impressive for a guy his age.
He played Tulsa both Wednesday and Thursday night. I assume the Wednesday night show was the same. ...
