my top 5 in no particular order...
1. Aerosmith. this was the first band I ever saw live. my dad took me at the age of 12 back in '98. they played at fiddlers green in denver. been hooked ever since. Thier best song IMO is Dream on...the live version where they play with the orchestra. good stuff
2. pink floyd. everthing they made was great. Hard to pick a fav. song but I think I'm gonna go with a live version of shine on you crazy diamond. (forget wich album it's on.) for the record I enjoy pink floyd even though I don't get stoned.
3. Dave Matthews Band. I love all the live stuff they put out on cd. it's great! best song is Jimmi Thing. again a live version at central park. I don't know what it is about live songs and me, but I just like em better than studio versions I guess.
4. Incubus. IMO one of the best bands out there today. I"m gonna go see them this july at the mile high music festival. can't wait. fav. song is (another live version from the look alive dvd) sick sad little world
5a. red hot chilli peppers. I guess my fav. song would be californication, though I like all the stuff they play.
5b. led zepplin. they have so many great tunes hard to pick wich is my fav. but i'm gonna go with dazed and confused.
