The story behind this free concert performance by Van Halen of "Poundcake" in the streets of downtown Dallas thirty years ago this week gets filed under Urban Legends that are actually true. That's me introducing Van Halen from the stage. -Redbeard

Music historians and longtime fans often emphasize what a good live band the original Alice Cooper outfit was from 1971 to 1974 before the sideshow theatrics moved center stage, but not a lot of examples exist to support that contention, which is why this rare performance of "Under My Wheels" in Dallas in April 1973 is a real treat. -Redbeard

It is a miracle that "American Girl", on the 1976 debut Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers released forty-five years ago, was ever discovered to be played on album rock radio: it was sequenced tenth, last song on side 2! Here TP and the best working band in America then stripped it down to its essence in order to "make it last all night..." during a multi-night stand at San Francisco's Fillmore in February 1997.

Five weeks after the deaths of his trusted guitarist Randy Rhoads, his tour bus driver, and the band's wardrobe seamstress in a single engine plane crash, Ozzy Osbourne summoned the courage to honor a commitment to perform a live national radio broadcast from Memphis' Mid South Coliseum, with Night Ranger's Brad Gillis doing a commendable job of guitar grace under pressure, ripping through "Flying High Again".

On the night back in 2014 when Matthew Sweet and band played the San Diego suburbs, the crowd waited patiently for his showstopper, "Girlfriend", and Matthew and band obliged of course with this solid performance.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee-to-be Todd Rundgren performed a concert in Connecticut in 2015 that was breathtaking in it's career overview, from the Nazz to Utopia, and including almost five decades of brilliant solo songs such as "Can We Still Be Friends?".

Todd Rundgren performed a stunning version of "Black Mariah", one of my all-time TR faves (originally found "when the kid gets heavy..." on Something/ Anything? almost fifty years ago ) when he played Ridgefield CT back in 2015, and this high…

This Jethro Tull concert performance is outstanding, from both the standpoints of the band's tight performance and the stellar live broadcast mix from Philadelphia's Tower Theater back in late November 1987. Here is a blistering concert version of "Steel Monkey".

Metallica wisely emerged from the pandemic lockdown on live concert performances with a much scaled-down pop up appearance in the 400-capacity San Francisco club The Independent on September 16. Here is "Fade to Black" from that Metallica show.
