Quick guide for the search

  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

so hard to choose and so many factors to consider... a few comes to mind because of factors not especially related to the music...

roger waters at Roskilde because it was just a perfect moment in time in every way. i was sitting on a patch of grass with my girlfriend, surrounded by the roskilde vibe, completely in love, the most beutiful sunset a perfect backdrop. an old happy hippie couple dancing around next to us. i actually cried when he played wish you were here...

kraftwerk in 1998, because they were my heroes. and because i got to grope some norweigian chick with huge tits.

crystal antlers at primavera last year because it was just a kickass gig!

and the best roskilde gig i haven't been to: the dream syndicate at orange in 1986. the cult cancelled and they were flown in from italy. of course i was only 5 and probably watching bamse & kylling at the time of the gig, but judging by the bootleg it was great!

I think Radiohead was good in 90 s, but now i just don t like them because it is different music now they are playing, i really want to see Radiohead when they did a good rock n roll

In no particular order!

NOFX (Hurricane Festival 2008, Germany)
The Mars Volta (Austin City Limits Festival 2008, Texas; USA)
Anthrax (Sonisphere Festival 2009, Knebworth; England)
The Devil Wears Prada (John Dee 2009, Oslo)
Genghis Tron (Amplifier Bar 2010, Perth; Australia)
Airbourne (Oslo Spektrum 2008, Oslo)
Volbeat (Union Rock 2009, Drammen; Norway)

The Subways (Hurricane Festival 2008, Germany)
Faith No More (Hove Festival 2009, Norway)
Neurosis (Kanonhallen 2008, Norway)

Two worst... this is harder.

Robert Plant and Allison Krauss (Austin City Limits Festival 2008, Texas; USA) Robert Plant was good of course but that Allison Krauss chick ruined the whole concert for me!
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (Hurricane Festival 2008, Germany) The music is awesome but the live show was extremely boring!
