    Id kinda agree except Uncle Johns Band. They dont seem to be able to really get that right live. IMHO of course.

    Scorpions Tokyo tapes was one of my favorite live albums back in the 70's

    Fly to the rainbow live version is way better than the studio version in my opinion

    I don't love Gabriels theatrics, lol... they didn't bother me, except I took their music more seriously when I watched their live performances sans the strange costumes (slippermen, magog) although I must say - the flower costume was quite comical :D

    I miss old Genesis.... wish there was more music like that now...

    Im not usually into the showmanship aspect of rock and roll. David Lee Roth, Kiss, poser type bands etc (most are to some degree) seem kinda cheesy, but Gabriel seemed to go to a different weird place, more like performance art and less like rock posturing.

    The scale of his stage props is kinda funny. Especially if you compare it to how elaborate Pink Floyd shows were just a few years later.

    The one that springs to mind for me is Dolly Dagger by jimi, always loved the Isle of Wight '70 version better than the studio one.
    Although as someone else has already said, Jimi had a way of performing live that changed things each time

    Most great rockers are better live- Beck, Clapton, Walsh, Blackmore, Kim Simmonds, Randy California, Page, Alvin Lee, to name a few.

    Cheap Trick - I want you to want me. Studio version is okay. On At Budokan, it rocks.
