    Sorry, but they have to be the most depressing and booring band I've ever had the misfortune to listen to.

    Did they do Winona's Big Brown Beaver?

    Edit: That was Primus.

    I am not proud of this but my first reaction when I heard that nine people died while PJ were playing at Roskilde years ago was to think that they probably of boredom.

    A mate of mine persuaded me that we had to get tickets to their first UK show at the University of London student union, that must have been in 1992 I think.

    Between the time that I bought the tickets - numbers 41 and 42 or something low like that, the single Alive was released and was a big hit and by the day of the show I could have named my price for selling my ticket to a tout.

    I wished that I had, their show bored me to tears.

    I saw them at Slane in '93 and it was a really good gig. Neil Young was headlining and they performed "rocking in the free world" with him.

    I went to the 93 Neil Young tour @ Finsbury Park, PJ, James (suprising good acoustic set) and 4 non blonds (mmm remember them) were also suporting. Excellent gig and they did rocking in the free world. 8/10

    I went to Wembley Arena in 00 to see them, the gig captured on the live CDs you could buy (of every date on the tour!). This was the best I have ever seen them. Highlights being Edie crowd surfing, doing some solo 'Grunge ukulele' what seemed like the whole audience singing along to Black, an encore of several songs (would constitute half a set for some bands) including Yellow Ledbetter. 10/10

    I saw them last time they played Manchester in 2009, While good, they were more going through the motions, Edie was bad tempered with the roadie, there was less involvement with the crowd (no surfing!) and Mike McCready while excellent (Playing the solos behind his back at some points) looked at times a bit disinterested. 6/10

    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

    They're supposed to be headlining IoW fest on Saturday, am I wrong to be glad the weather is tulip when I'm not going?

    I've never seen them live before and was hopefull of Edie doing his climbing tricks that he was famous for, but the bit you've got to remember is I bet most of the original band must be 45 - 50 now. Yeah, everyone was singing along to Black, Nothing Man etc but everyone went mad when the likes of BetterMan, Even Flow and the biggies came on at the encore.

    Great gig.
