oddly enough, the show was pretty decent this time. at least better than the dreadful one the week before when the Cars were the musical guests. count me as one of the fans who loved "The Elder" from the get-go, despite the oddness of the entire project. however, when you hear Ace's solo on this live version and don't hear it at all on the studio version you kind of understand why he would leave the band. well, I do, anyway.
