Jeff Beck is phenomenal live...I really do think the guitar and music in general is every bit a part of himself, just like blood and bones and everything else. He communicates through the guitar, makes it sing. And he always has a tremendous backing band, which I believe keeps him young, engaged and driven.Jeff Beck
Haven't seen him live yet myself, but I will the next time he comes to the US. Watching videos of his concerts, he's still got it going on
Maiden is staggering. They have stamina and chops, and you have to be in damn good shape to do what they do. A lot of those songs they're playing are epic, nothing simple about them. Watch Bruce Dickinson command the stage and listen to his vocal range, and then remember he's over 60. All of them are like that, truly amazing.Iron Maiden and Judas Priest are getting up there and still convincingly get it done. Especially Maiden.
Agree completely...and don't underestimate what they do. Mick is still running that stage and is perpetual motion, while bringing it vocally. And Keith's playing is full of nuance and groove. You can see and hear the passion he has for his music.I know it’s an obvious answer here, but Mick and Keith never cease to amaze me with how much they seem to have left in the tank.
They sound good, for the phone recording. Hard to tell if it's assisted. Sounds like maybe some tape going on there. Not sure. Also not complaining, still good. I'd go.
More alarming (?) is that crowd. Kinda sad. Kind of a sign of the times?
Neil Young still seems to be putting a real effort into it. Roger Waters seems better than he ever was.
Springsteen. The old guard seem to be holding up better than the cassette era rock bands….
I'll give those guys props. The caveat is that YMMV depending on the show - some of the grooves have been slowed down and dragging just a bit too much. But that would've been true of any original Dead tour back in the day.Surprised no one has mentioned Dead & Co yet. Bob Weir is 74, Mickey Hart is 78 and Billy Kreutzmann is 76.
Bobby routinely posts videos of his workout regimen. He’s clearly serious about maintaining his ability to tour for as long as possible. On the other hand, Billy has had to bow out of some shows both last year and on the current tour due to physical ailments.
