If you went to see "Bohemian Rhapsody"... You know it's pretty amazing. Queen performing at Live Aid in 1985. I remember seeing it as an 11 year-old kid and thinking, "I want more." So, I kept watching.


I had never heard "Hammer to Fall" before. I thought then and I still believe today, it is the single greatest live performance I have ever seen. Vocally, Freddie was almost perfect and gave his songs new life.

Led Zeppelin was watching too. Freddie and Queen commanded the crowd so well, Led Zeppelin had refused to play "Stairway to Heaven" but after they saw Freddie and how the crowd responded to him... They played it. Phil Collins was on the drum kit that day. He didn't know a lot of the Bonham fills. The bands reunion didn't go nearly as well as Queen's. To be fair Zeppelin hadn't played in 5 years.

What do you think was the best live performance you have ever seen? Keep it clean.
