Dave Grohl said he and surviving Nirvana members Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear teamed up for impromptu jam sessions that resulted in the recording of new music.
Grohl explained in a new interview how Novoselic did , who is a pilot, will occasionally fly to Los Angeles, where he and Smear live. When that happens, the three musicians jam if there’s an open studio nearby or there are instruments nearby.
“And we don’t like going through a big old Nirvana setlist, but we like to fool around and sometimes songs happen when we’re fooling around, ”said Grohl. “And you know when we’re in a studio we record them. So we recorded a couple of things that are really cool. But we’ve never done anything with it. But for us, I think it’s more like friends jamming around, it doesn’t really seem like some kind of big official reunion or anything like that. «
Grohl added: » We kind of record these instrumentals and and just tinker around. It’s very casual. There is no pressure on us to do what the world needs to hear. It’s more really just for fun and a lot of it is really cool, you know? It reminds you that this is what it sounds like when the three of us get together in a room and start playing. It sounds like it used to be. If the three of us get into a room and it makes that noise, it still does. ”
Now that the world knows that these recordings exist, of course a lot of people will want to hear them at some point. Perhaps one day Grohl, Novoselic and Smear could record a few vocals or recruit another singer or two to flesh out this new music. There’s likely no shortage of singers eager to work with the surviving member of Nirvana.
Billy Joel made excellent records in his early career, but almost every song in this collection (recorded at various locations on his 1980 tour) sounds live better. The single LP was so full that he didn’t even bother to record “Piano Man”.
Progressive rock at its best. This triple (!) Live LP followed the only two albums recorded with the best cast in the band (Chris Squire on bass, Jon Anderson on vocals, Bill Bruford on drums, Steve Howe on guitar and Rick Wakeman on keyboards ) – « Fragile » and « Close To The Edge. » But Bruford gave up at the start of the tour, so most of that album features Alan White, whose playing was much better suited to the arenas that Yes is now headlining
The classic version of « Lola » is from this live album and that alone deserves a place on this list.
As with many of the other albums on this list, there’s at least a bit of post-processing here, but the end result is one of the greatest albums – live or otherwise – in ’70s hard rock.
After their best album, Moving Pictures ”from 1981 was the perfect time for Rush to show off her live know-how. the heavy prog rock band somehow went from cult phenomenon to arena headliners. The album was so packed with classics that even “Limelight” (a song from “Moving Pictures” that was an ode to live performance) didn’t make it onto the album, despite being a radio hit recently. Neil Peart’s drum solo on « YYZ » is so iconic that many fans who aren’t even drummers know it by heart.
For some reason, Petty never had a definitive live album, but this collection, with performances from 1978-2007 is an amazing collection that shows that Petty and the Heartbreakers were one of the best live bands of the 70s, 80s, 90s and the 00s.
As the 70s came to an end, punk rock bands made the hippies from the 60s look obsolete. Neil Young was an exception and this raging, roaring live album with Crazy Horse shows why: They play as furiously as the Sex Pistols on songs like “Hey, Hey, My, My (Into The Black)” and “Sedan Delivery”. Not that they left psychedelic jams in the past: « Cortez The Killer » and « Like A Hurricane » were improvisational gems, and Young was still great at solo folk, as he was with « Sugar Mountain » and « I Am A Child. » “Proved. ”
If you never had the chance to see Lynyrd Skynyrd in Ronnie Van Zant’s lifetime (and let’s give props to Johnny Van Zant, who has done a great job fronting the band for decades) this is the best thing You will get. They released this after only having three studio albums, which gave them more than enough material for a double live album. In addition to showing off their Southern pride on « ‘ T ‘For Texas », they also proved to be blues-rock equestrians of their idols in Cream on Robert Johnson’s « Crossroads ». And of course this album has the definitive – « What song do you want to hear? » – « Free Bird. »
Recorded at the Woodstock Festival in 1969, Joplin performed ten hours later than planned, and partly because of that she wasn’t transcendent like on their Monterey Pop Festival appearance a few years earlier. But Jopin on less than full power is better than most artists on their best night, as shown here. Robert Plant, Steven Tyler, Ann Wilson and Axl Rose are among the singers who still carry the influence of Joplin to this day.
Recorded in 1980 and 1981 during Ozzy’s first tours as a solo artist. His two albums with original guitarist Randy Rhoads (who tragically died in a plane crash in 1982) stood up to his previous material with Black Sabbath, and his live band (Rhoads, bassist Rudy Sarzo and drummer Tommy Aldridge) grabbed almost the same much of it a slap as a sabbath. Someone is already sending this (along with « Blizzard of Oz » and « Diary of a Madman ») to the voters of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: Randy Rhoads needs to be inducted.
It’s a rough and ragged live album, and that’s appropriate: we’re talking about the Runaways here. They opened with « Queens Of Noise » (a kind of title track) and had iconic songs like « Rock and Roll » by Velvet Underground and « Wild Thing » by Troggs. And their own classic “Cherry Bomb” can hold their own against these two timeless jams.
Queen kept making pop singles in the ’80s, but in the late’ 70s they were still a rock band and that’s fully on display here. Although the critics didn’t love the album, they didn’t get Queen anyway, and this was the only authorized documentation of a Queen concert for years.
In 1984, when this album was recorded, Maiden achieved arena headlining status, and they did it without relying on hit singles: they were the rare band to achieve this type of popularity without To hear complaints about « sell out ». ”It would be hard to imagine them headlining such large venues with original singer Paul Di’Anno, but Bruce Dickinson, who had been singing the band for three studio albums at the time, did The voice and presence to deliver Maiden’s Metal to the biggest venues imaginable (and they still play in front of huge crowds, especially overseas).
This 1969 album came at an especially big time for the Stones; Mick Taylor had just replaced Brian Jones a few months earlier and streamlined the band’s live sound. This was also the last tour before adding additional musicians: you’re listening to Taylor, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts and longtime tour pianist Ian Stewart. The classic version of « Midnight Rambler » comes from this album.
Redding was one of the greatest singers in the world in the late 60s, and on this album he was supported by one of the greatest bands: Booker T & The MGs. Together they were a force of nature. Highlights included “Respect” (Otis sang it to Aretha), his cover of “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” by the Rolling Stones and “Day Tripper” by the Beatles.
This is that too The Yardbirds’ debut album; Their lead guitarist at the time was a young Eric Clapton who had quickly outgrown the band, but his playing here stands up to almost everything he’s done since.
There are so many Pearl Jam appearances to choose from as they have been posting authorized bootlegs on all of their shows for over ten years. But this show had a special energy: it was the last concert ever at the Philadelphia Spectrum, it was Halloween, it was across the street from a New York Yankees / Philadelphia Phillies World Series game, and it was the band’s longest show had never played at this point. It showed, among other things, their first performance of « Bugs » and the rarely played « Out Of My Mind » and « Sweet Lew ». Not to mention a cover of « Whip It » in full devo costumes.
Originally available as a bootleg, it was later legitimately released, and some may prefer « Ziggy Stardust: The Motion Picture » from the same tour. But the Santa Monica show was taped months earlier when Bowie was still all-in with the « Ziggy Stardust » personality, with a little more intensity and less fatigue. The band around guitarist Mick Ronson were in top form.
The greatest success of AC / DC was of course the singer Brian Johnson, but as a live band they were best when the late Bon Scott picked up the microphone. As the late Malcolm Young once said of the album, “We were young, fresh, vital and tough.”
This is the 1992 show where Kurt Cobain was wheeled onto the stage while wearing a hospital gown wore. He and the band still enjoyed their success, even if they questioned it. Thanks to the meteoric success of « Nevermind » they were at the top of the world and played most of this album. Cobain shouted a greeting to his 12 day old daughter and led the audience to sing, “Courtney, we love you!” The performances were furious and proved why Nirvana was the band everyone saw and heard in 1992.
Stop Making Sense ‘is widely considered to be one of the greatest concert films of all time, but even in terms of looks, the live album is a classic. Talking Heads have made great albums, but these live versions of « Girlfriend Is Better » and « Life While Wartime » beat the originals.
The line “I shot a man in Reno just to see him die” could attract a lot of audience attention. But when Johnny Cash sang it to an audience of inmates at Folsom Prison, it evidently took on a new meaning; Some of the faces looking back at Cash may have done just that, and they paid the price for it. Cash sings some of his toughest numbers, including « 25 Minutes To Go » and « Dark As A Dungeon », but kept his sense of humor in his songs in between and also on « Busted ».
Elton John himself has this as called his best live recording. The album title is reminiscent of the recording date and on November 17, 1970 it was not yet a star. It’s hard to imagine these days, but in 1970 Elton John was an aspiring artist who had something to prove, and he played like his life depended on it. He hadn’t yet added guitarist Davey Johnstone to his band; back then it was just his trio, bassist Dee Murray and drummer Nigel Olsson. Legend has it that Elton cut his hand during the show, and when it was over the piano keys were covered in blood. And it sounds like it.
‘The Royal Albert Hall’ is in quotation marks because (as most Dylan fans know) this concert was actually recorded at the Manchester Free Trade Hall during Dylan’s 1966 world tour, but the much-smuggled show was often mistaken for the Royal Albert attributed Hall to the illegal recordings. The show is legendary for its second set that featured an electric rock band, much to the horror of Dylan’s folkie fans. The acoustic songs are great – Dylan was a masterful solo artist, though he lost interest – but the electrical set was Dylan’s most defiant; it’s almost punk rock in places.
Sure, Cheap Trick’s first three albums were great, but when you hear “Surrender” or “Hello There” or “Big Eyes” or “I Want You To Want Me” you will reach for your « At Budokan ». LP. Like some of the other live albums on this list, it got the band out of the trenches and made them stars.
When Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band came on their “Born To Run” tour through Europe, the hype was so overwhelming that the audience was a bit skeptical and even Springsteen was annoyed about his record label. But this show, recorded on November 18, 1975, made him a big star in Europe; he’s incredibly popular there to this day.
Like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple brought their muscular blues-based compositions to various locations in concert via their improvised jams. Singer Ian Gillan really shines here, especially on Child In Time (possibly his best moment). This album is one of the blueprints for live heavy metal for decades to come.
U2 were once a post-punk band with their hearts on their chests; they were trying to conquer the world, they hadn’t discovered sarcasm yet, they still found mullets cool and didn’t care about stage productions of any kind. « Under A Blood Red Sky » caught them at the end of the era, before they were huge rock stars, but they wanted to follow in Who and the Clash’s footsteps.
A great singer can sing anything; Franklin was one of the greatest (maybe * the * greatest) and so when she visited the legendary rock club Fillmore West she had some matching covers in her set: « Eleanor Rigby » from The Beatles, « Love The One » from Stephen Stills You ‘re With ”and Simon & Garfunkels“ Bridge Over Troubled Water ”. These interpretations kept their own repertoire, to which “Respect” and “Dr. Feel good. « Bonus: Ray Charles appears for » Spirit In The Dark « .
Released at the height of Motörhead’s career, it follows her albums » Overkill « , » Bomber « and » Ace of Spades « records incredibly fast jams. And crazy, they got even faster on “No Sleep.” Motörhead released a lot of live albums, but this is the best of them.
The studio version of “No Woman No Cry” from 1974’s “Natty Dread « Was nice, but the live version of this album is the definitive one. How did reggae get from Jamaica to a huge audience in America? » Live! « Had a lot to do with it.
Until 1975, when this album was recorded, Former Humble Pie singer and guitarist Peter Frampton had released four solo albums, none of which had much impact, but true to the album title, some of the songs came alive in concert, with “Frampton Comes Alive!” topping the album charts and being the best-selling Album of the year 1976, making Frampton a gr made a star.
Seger tells the audience during the second concert recorded for this album, “Like I told everyone last night, I read Rolling Stone where they said, ‘Detroit audience is the biggest rock-&- Roll audience in the world, ‘I thought to myself,’ S —! I’ve known that for ten years! ‘“ This audience may have inspired the performances here, which are now cult. In 1975 when the album was recorded, Seger was huge in Motor City, but soon after that album was released, he became one of America’s greatest rock stars.
« You wanted the best? You have the best! The hottest band in the world: KISS! ”This quote, with which every KISS concert is opened to this day, has become a kind of cliché in the last few decades. But in 1975 it was actually true. And while a lot of post-production tightened the live album, it captures the excitement of KISS’s live shows when KISS wasn’t a merchandising machine and they still had something to prove.
Santana hadn’t released her debut album yet, but they starred after performing at the Woodstock Festival in 1969. Listen to this album and you will understand why. Even if their entire career ended here, they would still be legendary. « Soul Sacrifice » is one of the greatest live performances of all time.
Recorded at Fillmore East in New York in March 1971, the album was released in July of that year, just three months before the tragic death of leader and guitarist Duane Allman. « At Fillmore East » really marked the end of an era and saw one of the greatest rock talents at his best. The rest of the band were amazing too – vocalist Gregg Allman in particular. This is improvised rock music at its best.
While Brown wouldn’t have referred to himself as “rock and roll,” he has certainly influenced any rock and roll front man with his records and live shows. Mick Jagger, Roger Daltrey, Steven Tyler, and Bruce Springsteen all noted Brown’s power as a live performer (and Springsteen certainly noticed the tight ship Brown wielded when it came to running his band).
Yes, this is the historic 1967 concert that blew him away, lit his guitar, and became a star in the US (he was already popular in the UK). That context is useful, but even without it, this performance shows the Jimi Hendrix Experience at the top of their game. Hendrix made some iconic songs his own (« Like A Rolling Stone », « Wild Thing » and of course « Hey Joe ») and showed that his own material can keep up with these classics.
Better late than never: After Led Zeppelin broke up, it took more than two decades for the band to release the definitive live document of their live arts. Compiled from two shows from 1972, it shows the band at their peak. Their shorter songs pack a mighty punch, but they also flex their improvisational muscles on extended versions of “Dazed And Confused” and “Whole Lotta Love”. And of course their acoustic set (with “Going To California”, “That’s The Way” and “Bron-Y-Aur Stomp”) was great.
The Who studio albums form one of the greatest discographies in popular music, but none of them matched the raw power of « Live At Leeds ». In recent years, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey have played a full orchestra with five other musicians at the Who concerts. Back then they only made more noise with John Entwistle and Keith Moon.
Nowadays you can buy an expanded version of Live At Leeds with 30 songs. The original tracklist consisted of only six: three covers (« Young Man Blues », « Summertime Blues » and « Shakin ‘All Over ») and three originals (« Substitute », « Magic Bus » and a 14-minute « My Generation ») . And while we should be grateful for every last second captured in full length, it was the original six-song version that inspired most hard rock and heavy metal bands of the ’70s (and certainly some of the early Who’s alienated) -60s mod fans).
