I realize many people on this site might be too young to remember but it was borderline absurd that a band such as Live were considered "Alternative" in any way. I don't mean to insult the band by that but, unlike their forefathers in U2, R.E.M. and Pearl Jam (probably the bands they modeled themselves after) they never had much of an interest in making any strange artistic turns (save for Secret Samadhi) and always operated on the big anthemic arena rockers. It's almost comical to watch their mid-90's footage (and the fact that Rolling Stone made them "Artist Of The Year" in 1995).

Also, this guy seems like a grade-A prick. The reason for the band breaking up was, apparently, he demanded $100,000 "Lead singer bonus" at the Pink Pop festival.
