Side note.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The Rolling Stones' Rock And Roll Circus is an extraordinary film, documenting a show from December 1968 that featured the likes of Jethro Tull (with Tony Iommi), Taj Mahal, The Dirty Mac (Clapton/Lennon/Richards), and this performance by The Who along with other notable acts of the time. The Rolling Stones subsequently shelved the movie and record until its release in 1996, presumably because The Who blew them off of the stage. I agree, but don't know if many acts could ever live or have ever lived up to this unadulterated frenzy of rock and roll prowess.

Now I remember. 1992 roughly. Dire Straits played Rotterdam. I was there. They played in a football stadium. As I remember, the intro took an eternity.

What a night....fireworks as well.

A bit like this.... is there a God? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7iT59rJsM8&feature=related)

I know it's not quite the "classic" status such as The Who... but I always loved Guns N' Roses intro for "You Could Be Mine"

Actually, GNR had a lot of awesome intros to their songs!

Also can't forget Metallica... Enter Sandman jumps out at me

And of course got a show a little bias here, but Lynyrd Skynyrd has three of the most <u>instantly recognizable</u> songs the moment the intros hit... Sweet Home Alabama, Simple Man, and Freebird

I love the trumpet intro to Hotel California. It was on the Eagles DVD.
