I'm not sure how you can even have DMB in the same class as trash such as Jack Johnson and Nickelback but okay.

I've seen them about 7 times and each time the show starts off great but then somewhere I guess they fall a part.

I saw Living Colour in a small club once - loudest band show ever, even louder than metalica on their "... and justice for all" tour.

Chilli Peppers at the same small club in the 80s was also good.

Stevie Ray Vaughn on the "Couldn't stand the weather tour" Fabulous!!

"Tuck and Patti" are incredible live. Great every time I saw them. Particularly a show opened up by Don Ross.

Prince was great on the Purple rain tour and he was also great on the musicology tour. Got the whole 17,000 of us singing along in parts at both shows.

I feel sorry you saw 50 cent.

in any event I found one of my old ticket stubs and i saw two of of my favorite bands ever live:
Orbital and Mindless Self Indulgence.
I'll give both bands a 9.
Orbital gets a 9 because I was partially intoxicated and everything is good when you're intoxicated.

Well I saw lots of bands at Guildfest, but my memory is terrible so I'll only name my top 5.

1. Blue Oyster Cult
2. Hayspeed Dixie
3. The Stranglers
4. Nizlopi
5. Therapy (Which was pretty suprising)
