Now I know this thread requires some thought but it is somewhat misplaced in the thinktank. Probably an "everything else" post.

Not a big deal - thought I'd mention it.

I wish I could have heard Nick Drake perform in person. He rarely did it, and from what I've read, it was quite a performance when he did. He would sing his songs with so much emotion that by the time he was finished he would be on the verge of a breakdown.

That's why he rarely played live.

No video footage exists of the man.

I have a lot of respect for the Jack Johnson and his art. I enjoy the easy-nature of his music.

HOWEVER.

It was the WORST concert I have ever been to. You could tell he did not want to be there, and was only going through the motions. He complained about a lot of stuff-- missing home (understandable), and rambled on about the big TV projector. He apperantley really hates them. His voice and playing sounds different from his records-- less inspired.

And the crowd he draws.... Don't get me started. Of the 10,000+ people at the show I bet only 1000 were paying attention to the music. Imagine the cast of "Highschool Musical" playing with their cellphones and gossiping-- and thats the crowd.

I almost fell asleep.

Animal Liberation Orchestra (ALO) opened from him. I really enjoyed their set and would have preferred to hear them the whole time. Unique mixture of pop/folk/light-hearted jazz.

When I got back to my car me and my friend played some dead '77 to shake off the weirdness. We never mentioned the incident again.

In conclusion-- I would rather watch a local bar band stumble through "Louie Louie" then go to another JJ concert. --but I will keep listening to his albums!
