  • The World's Greatest Tribute Bands

    Anyone watch this show on AXStv?  It airs live at 110pm EDT on Monday night.  Tonight they're having a Metallica Tribute band.  Last week's show featured a somewhat uneven Queen band (with a lefty guitarist).  Two weeks ago they had a Doors band.

    Anyone watch this at all?

      Maybe they'll get them on in the future.  The show is shot at The Roxy ...

    I saw a Beatles tribute on a cruise ship once, and they did a fine job.

      I've gone to a couple Classic Album Live shows and really enjoyed them.  I thought they did a great job.

        I gotta go with:
        Badfish, a very cool Sublime cover band,

        and


        Dark Star Orchestra, a very fine Grateful Dead cover group.

        The Hollywood U2 show was not bad; probably the best thus far.  They did 80 minutes.  We all recognize that The Edge is not the most amazing guitarist out there, but the guy did a good job of capturing that "Edge"  feel, phrasing and sonic palette, without bombarding us with stomp boxes.


        Next week: Rumours ...

      I liked Dream Theater's covers of Us and Them and Highway Star.

        Rumours tonight.  The lead singer looks more like Suzanna Hoffs than Stevie Nicks ...

          Given how they each look now, that is a good thing.

            Beatles tonight. It would be pretty hard to mess this up, but it may be pretty lame.

            As a follow-up: Police tribute was a disaster ...

          Anyone catch that Beatles show?  It was the best one so far.  They did three sets (as you might expect): Brit Invasion, Sgt. Pepper, Let It Be, etc.

          Tonight's show: Guns-n-Roses.  I think I'll pass ...

            Unfortunately, I tried to watch the Guns-n-Roses show last night. They were terrible. The singer wasn't even close. Got through 3 songs and that was enough. I've seen local cover bands do a better job than these "pros".

            I DVR'ed last night's Alice in Cooperland episode, and I can't believe the guy can't find a better guitarist than that. I'm hoping it's just nerves and he'll settle down and play a little better than he has in the early going.

            I thought the Which One's Pink show last night was pretty good, if you ignored the "cheating" element of it. I'm not so much into the performers' looks unless it is a "theatric" artist like Bowie or Cooper, so the Police guys appearance did not bother me that much. However, a Pink Floyd tribute band with three guitarists and two full-time keyboardists is a bit much. They sounded good on most of the songs, but at times they had seven guys on the stage!

            Thought it was pretty funny when the lead guitarist botched the outro solo of Another Brick ...

              I thought the Pink Floyd guys were one of the best I've seen. I agree they were way more substance and less visual fluff. I'm ok with wigs and crap, but get the freaking singing and musicianship first, man.

              That poor lead guy muffed the outro lead, then next song forgot to turn off the harmonizer before talking....oops. I may be a bit of a purist, but tracks, harmonizers, pitch correction are fake as heck and have no place in anything billing itself as a 'live concert.' At least he said they don't use tracks, and they were clearly singing harmonies on several songs.

              Very talented guy, though, and they did a good job on most of the tunes. I would have liked to hear something from Pigs or Meddle, but I guess with only 60 minutes you have to hit the biggest songs.

            The Iron Maidens tonight.  This is another one for the "pass" column ...

              I recorded it, and watched a bit over breakfast this morning. If the first 2 songs are any indication, I am going to LOVE The Iron Maidens. I saw The Trooper and Two Minutes To Midnight and they were both great. I am eager to watch the rest of it after work today.

                AXS aired a one-hour (recorded) live Iron Maiden performance prior to the show. That was the first time they've done that, so they must have expected big things from the tribute ...
