canada's live 8

has to feature the worst group of washed up musicians of all the different concerts taking place right now.

atrocious.

simple plan, deep purple, 7et, the list goes on.

where are all the exciting up and coming bands such as arcade fire, broken social scene, stars, even 7ust feist?!

canada is at the top of the heap when it comes to amazing bands who are poised to make a big splash, but you'd never know it after today.

very, very disappointing.

london on the other hand, what a bill...wow.

Blue Rodeo are awesome

They were doing the alt-country thing in the 80's when Wilco were in their diapers

Neil Young is such a class act. Love him.

Most of the rest, I could do without.

The Canadian Live 8 sucks. Terribly. I stopped watching the CH long ago. I saw 30 seconds of Simple Plan and turned it off in disgust. While channel surfing, I later caugh a bit of the Hip, who weren't too bad...but still, not too bad isn't much better than very bad. I know it's for a good cause but I decided to wrestle with live feeds instead. I don't even think I'll bother with Neil Young, because I don't particularly like him either. Dan Ackroyd annoys me too.

I wish I lived in London.

Agreed.

Then again, it could've been a lot worse. Mediocre is what showed up, and in some strange circumstance of fate... the extremely good artists and horrendously poor bands cancelled each other out.

Picture the many "big" and "famous" crap bands of Canadian persuasion that were omitted. If they had overrun the bill, by default I would have asked for my nickel back. I know, it was a FREE concert.



JUSTICE!
