1) Radiohead, obviously 2) Tom Petty w/ Stevie 3) Buddy Guy (the man is a showman) 4) Robert Randolph & Family Band 5) Bonnie Raitt (If Bonnie and Buddy Guy had a lovechild he would be the sickest performer of all time!)
Honours: Seu Jorge Electric Eel Shock (those guys are insane) Nickel Creek
Radiohead - all I imagined it would be...and I have an active imagination. Steel Pulse - great set Mute Math - they had one of those moments when the crowd is quietly soaking in the music and then erupts in unision at the end of the song, awesome! Liquidrone and the New Orleans Bingo! Show - as a Tom Waits fan, I have discovered some new favorites, caught them every chance I could. Cat Empire - I dunno, maybe it was just the euphoria of starting the Roo, but these guys had me grinning and dancing all the way through.
- wasn't disappointed by anyone...except maybe dios(malos)
1. Phil & friends - soo many good memories from Grateful Dead shows ;D 2. Beck - I saw him about 10 years ago and it was amazing, and he still puts on a great show. My 14 year old daughter is the big Beck fan in the family and she just had a huge grin on her face the whole show. 3. Ben Folds - Wasn't expecting much but was blown away. 4. MMJ - Everything I had heard about their live show and more - amazing 5. moe. - Just awesome
Bela Fleck - Have seen many times in much smaller venues - (anyone heard of Wilmers Park in Maryland?) and they always are amazing. Radiohead - I heard them from the campsite and they sounded amazing - sorry I missed it now Blues Traveler - I missed them this time, but I have seen them about 30 times live and never seen a bad show - if ever you get a chance to see them you should.
I used a weighting system for the points, giving higher rankings more points than those in 4th or 5th, naturally.

"Man and his deed are two distinct things...a good deed should call forth approbation a a wicked deed disapprobation, the doer of the deed, whether good or wicked, always deserves respect or pity as the case may be. 'Hate the sin and not the sinner' is a precept which, though easy enough to understand, is rarely practicsed (sic), and that is why the poison of hatred spreads in the world." -Ghandi
I am also someone who never saw phil before bonnaroo and was totally blown away. He really showed the jambands out there today how to play a complete song and put on a real show. I was totally floored, I thought Joan Osborne was great.
