Spinal Tap were, indeed a waste of time, but they served to lighten up the event at a time when people were getting very emotional.
Liz Taylor's rant was completely inappropriate for the event. She spoke in far too patronising a way to people that were well aware of the effects of HIV / AIDS. Personally, I believe that she volunteered to do it in order to resurrect her flagging personal profile at the time.
Innuendo was interesting for it's seque into Led Zeppelin's "Thank You" - I personally thought it was FAR better than his attempt at "Kwazee Little Thisg Called Love" - listen closely to the way he sings the lyric - it's rubbish!
Daltrey was, as ever, superb on I Want It All, but I just wish that the guitars has=d been louder for that.
Extreme were fun, but acted as nothing more than a cover band.
George Michael proved that he has absolutely the best contemporary male voice in popular music - the way he blew the place apart for Somebody To Love was truly one of the greatest ever moments in music for me. It defined the inpact that Freddie had on his peers and the esteem in which they held him. It appeared to me that it was the only time during the show where Roger was truly moved.
The most underrated performance of the day was Seal's reading of Who wants To Live Forever - again, handled amazingly and delivered with flair and feeling.
Most overrated - Elton John, Guns N Roses & Def Leppard - all absolutely rubbish without exception.
