Ok, I watched Live Earth for one reason, and one reason only.... SPINAL TAP!!!

It was so FREAKING AWESOME!!

Right before them was Metallica. Here are the notes I gotted down:
Metallica:
Sad but True
Nothing Else Matters
Enter Sandman

Tap:
Nigel says "Hello Wimbledon!" (they're at Wembley)
Stonehenge!

two dwarfs bring out the pillars... graffiti, no top piece
David on the phone

top piece came down after the dwarfs left with the columns... during "where are they now"

Derek holds up zucchini - "This is what the earth can do!"

New song "for our favorite planet, not Jupiter, not the moon" (Warmer than Hell)

every bass player "in the known universe" comes out... everyone plays bass (David St. Hubbins)

big bottom!
all of Metallica (playing bass) Like 30 bass players on stage playing!

taking turns soloing

Ok, so that was seriously cool! Awesome morning for entertainment! I wake up to The Tour de France, then watch Metallica and Spinal Tap perform live over the web. I will have to get the DVD just for Tap's performance!

In my view the “Live Earth” fiasco was a huge waste of time and resources, and was largely hyposcrisy on parade presented by the likes of the idiot Al Gore and the super-narcissistic Madonna. Still it is fun to watch Spinal Tap do a couple classic numbers. I have the impression that the whole Wembley event would have not been such a yawner if they gave Tap 2 hours to play, instead of 15 minutes.

Totally agree! The energy wasted, trash created, and the fact that it won’t change people does make it a waste/failure.

But it was cool to see Tap.. and they were being Tap. Too bad Nigel’s mandolin got unplugged during Stonehenge. (even though it may have fit in with the Spinal Tap experience)

I was hoping at the very end that their drummer would explode in a puff of green smoke. I looked at a couple other venues, like Australia, they played 5-6 songs each. Wembley got screwed! ;)
