50 Greatest Live Acts Right Now: Rolling Stone Lame Feature They'd Be Ashamed Of If They Had Any

Yeah Rolling Stone, get down here















May we all stop what we are doing for one second and sneer at Rolling Stone. No, not a sort of  half hearted sneer because the Rolling stone terrorist cover was their best selling issue of all time. I am neither shocked nor upset. Thank god it wasn’t a music cover,  something they have exceedingly little knowledge about.

And speaking of which…

50 Greatest Live Acts Right Now, Rolling Stones current best of, is completely ridiculous, a snap shot of heavy touring outfits plus their perennial favorites. Here is the Top Ten plus comment and their real grade

1. Bruce Springsteen – Really went out on a limb their, didn’t you folks? More nonsense about Bruce, really? That’s what you want to inform the paying public about? He has been going downhill since 2010. – A-

2. Prince – Prince was nothing special last time I saw him. God forbid they put Graham Central Station  who blew Prince off stage last time I saw em. – B+

3. The Rolling Stones – I’m throwing up in my mouth. A real disappointment at Prudential last year -a nostalgia act. – B

4. Arcade Fire – Really? “The Suburbs” tour was that good -er, no it wasn’t. – B

5. Neil Young – 27 minute guitar solos -that was TWENTY SEVEN MINUTES  – A-

6. Jay Z – OK, he was so good at Yankee Stadium last month maybe they have a point.

7. Radiohead – I’ve seen em many times and they’ve never imroved on mediocre – C+

8. Jack White – He was superb at Radio City last year, so OK – A

9.  Rage Against The Machine – I thought they meant working bands – F

10. My Morning Jacket – Peaked five years ago – B+


Now here is an alternative top ten.
