    I for one loved all of the guest appearances. This one is probably the best. I just remember say to my friend, holy shit, he is killing it.

    Other than Homme and Cornell, I thought Finn was the highlight of the guest appearances at Alpine. He sang Education the second night too right? Or was Education the first night and Habit the second? The whole weekend seems like just one big song now.

    Freakin loved this moment. Every since the EV solo tour for ITW when Liam opened, I have become a big fan. Really dig the art and energy that this dude has in his soul.

    I really enjoyed when he opened for Eddie on the solo tours.. he was great...

    The moment from the video has a "Last Waltz" Van Morrison doing Caravan kind of feel for me..
    I'm gone ..Long gone..This time I'm letting go of it all...So long...Cause this time I'm gone

    He certainly made the most of that moment.
    After the song was over, I said to the person next to me "I will. Never forget ..that performance!"

    Epic!

    Really?

    I for one, thought that Julian Casablancas ruined every song he guested on.

    Loved Liam Finn though.

    "Holy shit he is killing it!"

    My thoughts too.

    I remember thinking that was THE BEST PJ GUEST of the whole weekend (temple of the dog reunion notwithstanding )

  • Great performance. I'm sure it was unbelievable to see happen live.

    It was hard to lodge the huge grin off my face afterwards.

    I thought all the guests were pretty sweet.

    I can never get sick of watching Liam Finn.

    Been lucky enough to see him a few times including his own shows and he is a brilliant performer who truly gets lost in the moments on stage. His records, whilst good, do not do the live performance justice

    I went to a last minute show Liam did at a tiny bar here in about January I think it was & seeing him do his go nuts thing is always so cool. :)

    Has the "passion and fury" gone out of live performances?

    I think NOT!
