    Just finished watching this on Palladia. Sure brought back some memories. Where the hell did these guys come from?

    I was really surprised at all the props Brian May was giving them. But yes, a lot of good memories.

    That was my takeaway too. That and Steve Walsh's voice. One of my favs as a kid Was The Wall.

    Interesting story they told about Steven Tyler. I was a little suprised they called him out on this, but it was a funny story

    They sure were a breath of fresh of fresh air.
    My sister took me one Christmas to see them at Howard Stein's "Academy of Music".

    Most excellent Show it was.

    That was good. I watched it again when it was repeated.
    Geez, their voices...esp. Steve's....and those songs and arrangements!

    I know, I just didn't seem like music you'd expect to be from the middle of nowhere!

    I saw them live in '76. They were absolutely outstanding! I couldn't believe my eyes and ears. No missed notes or flubbed lines all night. I left there that night highly impressed.

    I'm a fan from the 70's. Can't wait to watch and listen to the Doc.
    Only saw them once in '80 on their Audio Visions tour.
    They were more than awesome. :dude

    It was a great doc. Gave me a new appreciation for them. I always thought Steve was a great singer, but didn't know much else about the band.

    I missed Steves' last show. It was in November in Sioux City. Rich and Phil are the only original members touring, but the whole band still rocks.

    That would be like Heart touring with only Howard Leese and Michael DeRosier as the only original members...

    Listening to those songs again, I noticed what a great bass sound Dave Hope had.
