If you are a follower of this Blog or have watched me on Mikey’s Facebook streams you have heard me talk about 3 of the best fella’s that anyone would call Friends.
Or in my case, the terms Brothers is used
Tbone as you know I have written about a ton here at the site and at times I have brought up his two younger bros Darr and Rugg as we have all traveled the musical path together.
When Mikey and myself went on Facebook and gave our Nigel Tufnel All-Time Top 11 Live Albums like a complete ding dong I forgot to ask these guys what there Top 11 Live albums would be!
Thankfully on our last video, I was able to rectify the situation and to share with everyone Tbone’s, Darr, and Ruggs Top 11 Live albums.
So what the Hell, Let’s turn there Top 11 into a post!
Let’s Do This!
First list posted below is Tbone’s.
Tbone’s all-time Top 11 with Aerosmith’s Live Bootleg sitting in the Number 1 spot as it is on my list! Great minds do think alike.
I was surprised(but glad) to see Maiden Japan sitting at the Number 5 spot which was very cool but as Tbone explained to me that RUSH’s Exit Stage Left and Iron Maiden’s Maiden Japan were the first-ever two live albums he bought back in 1981 so to him those are impact live albums!
Great stuff and if you didn’t know you would think this list could be my own!
Now here’ Darr’s Top 11 below.
11. Kiss – Alive
10. Nirvana – Unplugged
9. The Beatles – Live at the Hollywood Bowl
8. The Scorpions – World Wide Live
7. Rush – Rush in Rio
6. Ted Nugent – Double Live Gonzo
5. Van Halen – Right Here Right Now
4. Tragically Hip – Live Between Us
3. U2 – Rattle and Hum
2. Aerosmith – Live Bootleg
1. RUSH – Exit Stage Left
Darr had some cool picks. How about that Beatles live one where the shrieking of the girls is so loud that you can barely hear The Beatles themselves. Nirvana Unplugged as well and as you can see Darr being a few years younger than me and Tbone was starting to head down his own Sonic Highway and discover bands on his own. Full points from the home office of dEke having Live Bootleg at the number 2 spot!
Below is Rugg’s Top 11…
1. Wilco: Kicking Television
2. Rush: Exit Stage Left
3.AC/DC: If You Want Blood
4.U2: Under A Blood Red Sky
5. Stevie Ray Vaughn: Live Alive
6. Led Zeppelin: How The West Was Won
7. The Kinks: One For The Road
8. Aerosmith: Live Bootleg
9. Eric Clapton: Unplugged
10. Neil Young and Crazy Horse: Live Rust
11. Dire Straits: Alchemy
Looking at Rugg’s Top 11, his list it still falls under the category of Rock. But as Rugg is the youngest out of all of us Rugg’s list is pretty cool as some of the stuff that I and Tbone were playing at the time rubbed off on him(Aerosmith, Zep, Rush, AC/DC) but Rugg forged his own musical journey in discovering live albums on his own. (The Kinks, Neil Young, Dire Straits) How about that Number 1 with Wilco?! To me, that is an awesome pick as I had no idea that Wilco would be his Number 1 but that’s what makes these lists cool to see.
Everybody has there own tastes. So good to see.
I would like to thank Darr, Rugg, and Tbone for playing along and submitting as it was great to see there involvement as I have known all three of them since 1975!
The same damn year as KISS Alive!
