Default yes i know there is a wicked live performance thread but this merits its own



man it's been a while since i've watched this. at least ten years
jimmy is the fucking man. and was totally in his prime on the farewell tour

That performance is terrible. Jimmy is good but passion and loudness doesn't always mean good.

also don't forget to take into account that this was well-known and hyped to be their final major broadcast performance

No kidding. This performance is literally a view of a band falling apart.

James is pretty great there too

Never had much time for CCS, but it is a fantastic Jimmy song

My favorite Billy-related TV performance is Zwan playing Settle Down on SNL. Sounded great and you can tell they were having a blast. Not sure if it's on YouTube at the moment. They seem to take it down everytime it gets posted.

I fucking love Machina II. Just dont how this album grew up so much on me in the last years. MCIS on the other hand has sounded me boring lately...

what i like about this performance is that i don't really like the song itself
but the attitude of the entire band, as slunken said, is what sells it

billy is kinda gnarly and snarls out the lyrics, james is completely apathetic in a somewhat cool way, and jimmy just fucking kills it. they play it so much faster than the album version, and this is a song with so much going on and he just blasts through it. this is exactly why the pumpkins will never be the same without him

LOL...Jimmy plays an awesome fill at 2:55. Right at the end of that fill Paz plays a wrong note.
