Your friend is way full of crap , any moron can produce there voice to sound epic , its the ones that can sing it live that really prove there artisits or wanna bes (IE almost any rapper)

I can't just list what's better live vs albulm because the stuff I listen to by default is better Live the on Albulm (Dead, Phish etc etc) But one I will throw in there that might not come up

Primus = Tommy the Cat

Um, In My Time Of Dying is the LAST SONG I would pick. The version on that DVD is terrible IMO; the drumming is nothing close to that on the studio album version. Stairway on HTWWW is definitely better than it is on the album, although both are great, and Heartbreaker is infinitely better live than on LZII.

AC/DC live is excellent. Highway to Hell and Back in Black were meant to be played at volume 11.

really? I think page's live distorted slide work makes up for the drums, which I actually hadn't noticed in particular.

yes, heartbreaker is sweet live, at least on BBC sessions.

The recording of Bob Dylan's 1966 Royal Albert Hall concert contains several nominations for the best version of that song ever recorded:

She Belongs To Me
It's All Over Now, Baby Blue
Desolation Row
Tell Me, Mama
Like A Rolling Stone
