    Picked up the special edition of the Who's documentary film "The Kids are Alright" on DVD
    the other nite; the bonus DVD has isolated film
    and audio of just John and his Alembic playing
    "Baba O'Reilly" and "Won't Get Fooled Again" from
    the live concert at Shepperton Studios a few
    months before Keith died. These 2 features alone
    are worth the $25 or so price tag, you really
    get to hear John go at it on his Alembic Exploiter/Spider thingy bass. It just KILLS!
    A few minor flubs and some notes hanging open
    and stuff, but it's a great performance nonetheless. I always liked the live versions
    of these songs from these sessions more than
    the studio tracks; it's very cool. John burns
    thru the songs with almost no emotion; takes
    off his bass and calmly walks off stage....
    Long live the Ox!

    Cheers,
    Slug
