what is the point of greenlighting this?

so we have to click through to Ranker.com to then proceed to click through a 22-page slideshow?

because the only thing linked to here is a 40 minute Pearl Jam video.

bad form, subby

Don't know if he counts as legendary but this is a favorite of mine, 16 year old David Grohl doing some great drumming at one of his first gigs:

"....and 50 Cent."

"Legendary" among whit music critics who want to seem hip, maybe.

There's always something just a bit awkward about a clip like that, when one member of the band is so much better than everyone else in it.

Flaming Youth, 1970 - with pre-Genesis Phil Collins on drums.

Legendary?  LL Cool J and Soundgarden are legendary?  What is the color of the sky in your world?

That video of them is incredible. 8 songs, 3 of them would turn out to be huge hits.

And Notorious B.I.G. was at his peak in 1995.

TOOL early show
Bonus...Here's Maynard pre-Tool on public access singing "Sober" and rocking some sweet Jesus sandals

There's a really early RATM doing Clampdown out there somewhere.
 
2013-07-03 04:08:51 PM  
Anyone have a copy of Painful Rectal Itch at thier first gig? I think they performed thier first hit from way back when called, "Stink Finger"

Andric: Gulper Eel: Flaming Youth, 1970 - with pre-Genesis Phil Collins on drums.

Thanks for that!


Looking at the way he was sitting at the kit back then, it's no wonder he needed spinal surgery 40 years later.

Not only were they going to be "hits", the early recordings are pretty much the same arraignment that ended up on Ten.  Pearl Jam, in this form, had only been together a few months when this was recorded.

3 other songs are solid, with Alone needing work.

I'm impressed with Mccready, with his Chrons and what not.

Came here to post that. Damn impressive show.

The one that surprised me the most was RatM - if that's their first show as titled, they had a pretty solid sound already.

Here's the list - http://www.ranker.com/list/the-top-early-career-gigs-of-famous-rock-s t ars/daniel-kohn

By the way, watching MCA on the bass was depressing... fark cancer!
