The Sex Pistols (Live At Winterland San Fransisco 1978)



Even with the "historical" significance of this show, it being the final show of their only US Tour, it's pretty bad right from the start. The show itself is famous for one thing, that being the end when Johnny Rotten addresses the crowd after the final song, saying "Ha ha ha. Ever get the feeling you've been cheated? Good night." If I were there in person, that's exactly what I would have felt. This concert is the poster child of a band going through the motions, just to get it over with to fullfill their contractual obligations so they can get paid. It's pretty embarrassing with Rotten and the rest of the band singing way off key, the constant tuning of their instruments in between songs, which gets annoying very fast and it never lets up. Also adding to the mix is the poor audio itself. The video quality isn't any better either.

The only song that was actually good, even for them, was Anarchy In The U.K. That's it. They even f*cked up my favorite Pistol song; Pretty Vacant. FYI, this show is further proof that Sid Vicsious is a horrible bass player. Hell, Gary Oldman makes a far more convincing bass player than Sid could ever dream of.

One good thing did come from the show. It was the announcers, which started at two at the start of the show, but by the end there was only one left. Apparently the other one walked off because he couldn't take it anymore, leaving the chick to close out the show. Funny stuff and the sole reason why this even got a 1 Star rating.
