    I think that was the most enthusiastic flutist I have seen in quite some time.

    Yeah, she really gets into it. At least she has some "stage presence"

    That is how you pump a crowd up. I would love to have the band play stuff like this at a football game.

    I enjoyed hearing their version and would love to hear it at a home football game. That being said, its not even close as to the real version I saw in 1993 at Lollapalooza.

    I always thought Down Rodeo would make a cool Pep Band tune, but it's really hard to arrange well because the singer is essentially just shouting, which is tough to make sound interesting on horns.

    He just wanted everybody to know he saw it live. He is now to be consulted as the authority on this topic.

    Now that you brought it up......Rage was the first band to hit the stage that day. Unbelievable set, I had never seen a band play with such energy(until I saw At The Drive-In) Dinosuar Jr and Babes in Toyland played next. I think it was when Arrested Developement hit the stage with that annoying song "Tennessee" that I wandered over to the 2nd stage to see Tool. Then about 6 o'clock Alice In Chains played, Layne threw a pigs leg out at the crowd, pretty funny and to rap things up at night was Primus. Great show. Thanks for asking.
