I was reading a posting in more than one thread at a time.

I was supposed to reply that in the "Should Bono follow the Silverfox Adam with hairdye" thread.

I think I've got a right...let's see...first performance of his I saw was...1986/7...my high school gym in Bracebridge...and yeah, he was hammered..then again, so was I.

Also from The Last Waltz, doing background vocals for a totally zonked-out Neil Young. Amazing. Fans of either will love this:



Not for everyone, but if you know the song (which supposedly inspired Zeppelin's Going to California) you'll def love it. On the Johnny Cash show...the voice, the playing, the lyrics...fantastic.



And a later-period, sexy performance from an Amnesty International concert:

THose clips are worth reposting....

Robbie looks pretty lit up too!

Awesome stuff, thanks!

Oops. Somehow I got the idea that Chris was Canadian.
Anyway, yeah... the CJ version of Sweet Jane is one of my all time favorite songs.
