    Y&T is on my concert bucket list!

    ...actually, they would be cool to see at ProgPower!

    Y&T are so amazing it's ridiculous. They didn't just exceed my expectations last year, they trounced them into a pulp.

    It's so hard to name just a few favorites, but the top 10 are probably Myrath, Circus Maximus, Luca Turilli's Rhapsody, Sabaton, Saxon, Black Sabbath, TYR, Ghost, Steel Panther, and Y&T.

    Volbeat at the Joint in Las Vegas. I would even go as far as saying one of the best bands I've ever seen live. They were fun, crushing and just damn enjoyable.

    Eclipse at Melodic Rockfest 3. Their last album is a fave of mine, so seeing those guys was a big highlight for me.

    With any luck I can add Firewind to the list after tomorrow night. Looking forward to seeing them with Kelly on vox.

    U.D.O.

    Almost made me wish he'd reunite with Accept.

    Nice to see Y&T mentioned even though it's just the Meniketti show now. Was lucky to see them in 1985 and the first four shows at the Fillmore in San Francisco. The last time they played all of Earthshaker but without Phil...

    Circus Maximus at ProgPower, with a CLOSE second to Shadow Gallery at ProgPower.

    I feel blasphemous for even saying so, as long as I've waited to see SG, but CM this year just really blew me away. They were so on.

    I've seen Circus Maximus live three times and in my opinion, they're always on!

    Fu Manchu performing all of The Action is Go.

    Still one of the most energetic live bands going.

    Riverside, one of the best live sets I've ever seen. Also honorable mentions go to Queensryche, Myrath, and Volbeat.

    Raven was great at all the venues we played with them at, but I thing Springfield was the best. Ghost was a lot of fun at the 9:30 Club.
