    Personally my fav guitar solo of all time. I heard Parisienne Walkways, i heard Freebird, i heard 'em all... then i heard this and never looked back. Learnt to play it note for note the day i heard it. Love it, and his tone is sublime...gonna stick it on now actually

    im surprised queen live at wembley wasnt higher. i think metallicas binge and purge should be on that list. agree with thin lizzy for #1

    i think its great...Thin Lizzy's a great band and very underrated...imo there's a few I'm left with a "WTF?" feeling, but to keep myself from getting hammered by the douche flammers, I'll keep those to myself. F*** the haters!!

    amazing album. it should definnatly be on there
    TheWickerMan666
    Iron Maiden should be higher, in my opinion, and Rock In Rio should be there as well as Live After Death. It's great to see Wishbone Ash there though - they really deserve it, and it's great to see them getting some recognition, 'cause they rarely do these days.

    I like the list, but Alter Bridge's Live From Amsterdam, methinks deserves a spot, as well as Nirvana unplugged and maybe AiC unplugged.

    if you havent heard allman brothers live at fillmore east or band of gypsies at fillmore east in its entirety i suggest u smoke a blunt, throw on your i pod, and check out some of the best live shit. bill graham ran the all the fillmore theatres and was known for putting on some of the best shows in rock history.

    Glad to Rory has got some recognition, i'd place Irish tour much higher nevertheless glad he's on there.

    These are good examples to try if you doubt the value of buying a live album, especially Made In Japan, Live and Dangerous and Pulse (on DVD!)

    Not a single Zappa album? Shit, the guy made a POINT out of live albums. Even some of his albums that sound like studio albums are live!

    Also, no Hendrix? And no Live Rust?

    Live and Dangerous is quality some really good ones on there other ones that I like are Live Evil from Sabbath as well as the Ozzy Tribute and Motorhead albums mentioned above

    I reckon 'No Sleep 'til Hammersmith' isn't high enough. And for Metallica, S&M should be Live Shit.
    JackWhiteIsButts
    I can't believe Wishbone Ash made it up there. I didn't think anyone even knew who they were anymore.

    No McCartney and "Wings over America Live'76", Bob Seger "Live Bullet", "Concert For George", "Concert For Bangladesh". T.REX "Born to Boogie" Come now, lets be reasonable fellas. I love Thin Lizzy like everyone else, but there are so many that came before that should be higher on the list. I'm glad to see "Woodstock" made it to "38" Wow, how generous. It should have been "frickin" one or two. WTF

    I love Rush, but Rush In Rio isn't really that great an album...
    Redders5150
    Well deserved in my opinion, although there was over-dubs in the studio. Amazing album!
    R0ck3rd4z
    how ironic lol. the only thing that was live on that album was brian downey's right leg.
    JD89
    L&D is a great album, Cowboy Song and Still In love With You are 2 amazing tracks.
    Hungry_Hameds
    I would have thought Queen's Wembley 86 would have been higher than Live Killers, but they are both awesome, and maybe Zep's how the west was won ahead of Song Remains the Same, but Live and Dangerous is rightly number 1. Warrior is a sick song, drums, guitar, stunning.
    Villearreal92
    Thin Lizzy FTW! Definitly an underrated band on all acounts. I'm actually picking up a copy of Still Dangerous this sunday...i hope it's as good as Live and Dangerous. I'm sure since it's Lizzy, it will be
    greggerg40
    How the West Was Won by Led Zeppelin should definately be higher than Song Remains the Same... I like that Live At Leeds by the Who is right up there
    hiddeninromance
    It's a very good live album. I would put the Bob Dylan 1966 "Royal Albert Hall Show" top though, just for it's effect on the music industry. After Dylan plugged in and snarled like a rolling stone, it all changed.

    i really would've like to seen ozzy and randy's "tribute" here. i think thats a great live album.
    Lil Macker
    Still In Love With You - the solo by Robbo on that one is amazing. Seriously, one of my favourite guitarists ever. Deserving of the #1 I think. Nice to see UFO there as well, amazing album by them, I love I'm a Loser, one of my favourite songs.

    True, but ouch... Labrie just can't catch a break.

    Dream Theatre would probably be up there if James LaBrie was capable of nailing his songs live. From the times I've seen them, he's isn't.

    I've gotta throw in my vote for World Wide Live.... "You see the microphones up in the air, you see them? Do you know what we're doing tonight?.....WE'RE DOING A LIVE RECORDING TONIIIIIGGHT!!"
    qcollis
    Disappointed the Allmans didn't rank a bit higher than 30... Otherwise pretty good list. Seems like mostly classic bands and artists more than any contemporary stuff like pearl jam, AIC or dream theatre
    dhutton
    it personally believe that it's a travesty that rush isn't in the top ten. though they have three albums on there so i can't complain too much.
    TokoBali
    Live & Dangerous is the right #1. Bit strange they put Metallica's S&M on instead of Live Sh*t: Binge & Purge.
    Eirien
    Oh and I defo agree with shwilly about Friday Night In San Francisco (I can't believe that's not on there!), The Stone Roses and Frank Zappa.

    Calm down, it doesn't matter that much. Maybe 'Scences From New York' does deserves to be up there, but so do loads of other great albums. Nice list on the whole, but a bit predictable.
    hunterm8
    i have no problem with the acts on the list itself, but there should definitely be some swaps, ie. HTWWW with TSRS for Zeppelin, Live at Leeds #1, etc.
