it's not a bad (if predictable) list....i woulda put Rush, Frampton and skynyrd a bit higher up the list....
also note that Kiss Alive II not there, and maybe Dio and (Dio era) sabbath live albums missing too?

Look how many colossal live albums are below Live Killers... Rush, LZ... wow.

Not that these lists really matter anyway...

Woodstock is #38?

First live appearance of Carlos Santana AND Jimi's Star Spangled Banner only #38?

Crap list.  Let's make Rare Live #41.

You'll get no arguments from me about the first three.

All brilliant live albums.

A pretty good list. Personally I think that The Who's Live At Leeds is too low, I would have it at number 1, and the Allman Brothers Band's At Fillmore East is also IMO too low.

It is definitely too low. I was quite shocked at its ranking.

Thin lizzy's "Live and Dangerous" is the indeed the best live album I've ever heard, brilliant pure rock. Live Killers is retty cool, Live at Wembley is not that good.

 Sorry but the best Live Queen Albums are.

 1.  Live At The Bowl  reat Opener Flash/Hero great intensity in the playing.
 2. Live At Montreal Nov 81
 3. Live Leiden 86
  and maybe Vienna 82, Buenos Aires 81.

 Live Killers is the Dog's Turd, Shit Sound and a bit boring imo.

 Thin Lizzy and Kiss are not in Queen's class end of period.
