Title: Rock Concert DVD's

Rock Concert DVD's (http://www.rockconcertdvd.net/shop_tienda/index.php)

This looks like a pretty cool site for Concert bootlegs. I haven't even had time to go through it all. There's so much to browse through. I don't know how they can sell all these and not get shut down. No idea how long they have been in business or how reliable they are, but if I find something I like I may pull the trigger on it since they are dirt cheap.

I'll never buy one. My local used music store has these and from what I've seen, they just don't live up to the professional quality I expect. After seeing a well done concert, bootlegs just would **** me off.

But what about shows from the 70's that will never see the light of day on DVD? Those are the ones I personally would want to get. Not saying that I will, but they are the first ones to check out. Nothing can top a professional shot concert and DVD production for sure.

I get what your saying. There are several out there where the group never did capture their concert. I would LOVE to recapture that, but my tastes in perfectionism overrides that desire to see something captured. It just ruins the experience for me. It's happened with bootleg albums, CD's and video's. Disappointing me every time.

I thought I talked about the Ozark Mountain Daredevils cluster. I think you can see which one I wrote (http://www.amazon.com/Ozark-Mountain-Daredevils-Reunion-Concert/product-reviews/B000Q365IC/ref=cm_cr_dp_all_helpful?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending).

Jo King "PhilMcKracken" ? I'm gonna say this one is yours because you still have "Little Old Town in Midwest" sewn into the back of your underwear.

looks cool.

Bootlegs can be very hit and miss...but if it's a band you love...sometimes just the audio is worth it.

sometimes the camera is a single shot way back...obviously now with all the hand helds....you can get way better footage than back in the "old days"

Hey, the best shot bootleg ever that kick's 'professional shot productions' is KISS' Conventry Gig. No lie.

As for the sites selection, the two Holy Grail Concerts that I have been looking for for years is KISS' Animalize Tour with Mark St. John (before Bruce Kulick took over for him) and Van Halen's 1984 Tour (San Diego, 2nd show for obvious reasons). The VH show is more of a fantasy wish list because I know it doesn't exist. But KISS' does.

I am sure you'll find it if it exists.....there's a lot of hard core kiss fans.....it'll be out there.

Elton John Ė Million Dollar Piano

Without trying to sound clichť, Iíve been a fan of Elton John from his very first recordings. My fandom did wane after Blue Moves, but I kept abreast of his output. Elton is prolific and his performances are jaw dropping entertaining.

That view may have changed. I recently watched Elton Johnís latest performance captured, known as the Million Dollar Piano. A Vegas show with a ton of glitter and shiny lights. That is not new. That has always been and will be Elton.

He and the bandís performance is what sucked. If there was ever a show that was called in, it would be this Million Dollar Show. Elton has definitely lost some of his voice. The band and singers all had their spots on the stage. I swear one of the female singers was actually irritated to be there.

The song selection really kind of nailed it shut as an old folks concert. All tunes are hits, but some were more show tune than rock. For those who have never seen an Elton John concert, Iím sure this came off as awesome. And believe me, Eltonís worse days are far superior to most artist best days. But since Iíve seen him perform many a time, I know the guy can bring down the house.

This concert was just a snoozer.

There was one highlight and that is when Elton performed Indian Sunset, without the band, but backed up by Ray Cooper, his percussionist. Ray has always been an outlandish performer. His movements exaggerated.

I wonít even talk about the most kick ass song ďSaturday Nightís (alright for Fighting)Ē Where a ton of people got up on stage surrounded Elton and just became a nuianse taking picture or videoís and getting selfies. WTF? Song totally ruined.

just saw that 3 hour Eagles documentary on streaming netflix...I'd highly recommend it, and I am not a big Eagles fan...but the story is very interesting/

It is a very well done docu.

I would suggest checking out Don Felder's book Heaven and Hell: My Life in the Eagles (1974-2001) (http://www.amazon.com/Heaven-Hell-Life-Eagles-1974-2001/dp/0470450428/ref=sr_1_6?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1420834621&sr=1-6&keywords=eagles) for a compare and contrast to the Eagles documentary

I read a blurb he did that book and I am VERY interested to read it...I need to take  a page out of Mister Chiprocks book and get it on reserve from the library.

I KNEW the sh#t had hit the fan early in the documentary when Don Henley had referred to Don Felder as "Mr" Felder in one of his little clips..I was thinking..."why did he call him "Mr"??....something bad must have happened@!!!

then about 45 minutes later in the doc...I was like...ok he's on the reunion tour...that was weird...then I found out what happened!!

amazing story...I gotta read the book,

Chip if you pop into here today...note me...I wanted to ask you something!

Yep, they kept the documentary civil and comprehensive, but I could clearly see Don and Glenn firmly biting their tongues. Felder's book does not hold back. So this documentary is a later date where all that in-band conflict is open... at least from one perspective.

I tell you what. From reading that book, I definitely have a different view of Mr. Henley and Mr. Frey.

listening to Artie Lange interviewing Don Felder on youtube...he points out a lot of funny stuff I noticed as well....the point where Glen starts getting nasty at one point in the doc.
