That is, without a doubt, my favorite version of US Blues.

I have the soundtrack so I dont have to deal with that crap. Couldnt stand how they botched that version with all the SFX. Besides that they should have at least had the real video to it somewhere in there.

I think it is real. They use to have some dude that liked playing with fire light off these huge balls of lighter fluid or some shit on the stage. I remember reading about this dude in one of my GD books.

Yeah there is pyrotechnics at the show there. But im talkin about the intro to the Dead Movie with all the SFX goin on. Yeah that guy in the overalls is great. He wigs out during one song. Casey Jones maybe?

Well, I guess if we have to blame anyone it's Jer. It (the movie) was his baby.

I would just be happy as a pig in shit if I got to see an uncut video of the "Eyes>China Doll" In the movie version just as phil starts his solo they start cutting to all this backstage stuff...bummer!
