Filmed in 1978 during the Some Girl’s tour, this Blu-ray disc captures The Rolling Stones at what I feel is the top of their game. They’re young and full of attitude and swagger and in total command of the stage. Mick Jagger prances around relentlessly posing for the crowd while the band tears through their critically acclaimed record, Some Girls, as well as some older more classic Stones tunes.

God Bless Ozzy Osbourne is a documentary about the man, the myth and the legend that is Ozzy Osbourne. Directed by Ozzy’s son Jack, this is an in-depth look at the incredible journey of one of the most well-known hard rockers in the world. The intimate interviews with family and friends, including Tommy Lee and Henry Rollins, give the film a depth that allows the viewer a sneak peek behind the scenes.

We Come In Pieces captures the British alt rock act Placebo performing live in front of a packed house at London’s Brixton Academy. My exposure to Placebo has been very minimal; while I’ve heard of them and perhaps have heard a few of their songs, I really wasn’t familiar with their extensive catalog and their incredible live show. But this is a band that has sold millions of records and toured the globe playing to millions of people, so I figured it was about time I got acquainted with them.

This is Peter Gabriel like you have never seen him before. Recorded live in London over two nights in March of 2011 this Blu-ray features Peter Gabriel and The New Blood Orchestra performing songs from throughout his career (minus guitars, bass or drums). This is a tremendous undertaking though because Gabriel does not just rehash his old hits by performing them in front of an orchestra.

Mindcrime at the Moore is an elaborate production and theatrical interpretation of both critically acclaimed Mindcrime albums. Performed back to back, accompanied by actors and guest vocalists, it eventually culminates in a confrontation between the main characters Nikki and the illusive and mysterious Dr. X played here by the late, great Ronnie James Dio. Capped off by two classic Queensryche songs “Jet City Woman” and “Walk in The Shadows”, this Blu-ray is really top notch.

Filmed about 6 months before his untimely death in February of 2011, this Blu-ray release is a fantastic, albeit bittersweet, performance. In the guitar world Moore is legendary not only for his hard rock guitar style, but also for his blues skills as well. In fact previous to this show Moore had been very heavy into the world of blues. For this performance though he returned, not only to Montreux, but also to the world of hard rock.

To date, Double Live is by far my favorite DVD release from Eagle Rock Entertainment. As a huge Twisted Sister fan I found this package to be utterly fantastic. It’s a two disc set featuring two performances filmed 19 years apart. It also includes interviews with the band discussing their reunion as well as the personal impact the events of 9/11 had on the members. I’ve seen the band live countless times and while nothing can replace attending a concert itself, this DVD comes damn close at capturing the passion and intensity of a Twisted Sister show.

Live at the Greek Theatre was recorded on the last night of The Doobie Brothers’ 1982 “Farewell Tour”. As one of the most influential bands of all time, their contributions not only to rock n’ roll, but to the music industry in general are immeasurable. As you might expect, this DVD contains many of the band’s biggest hits, and let me tell you there are a lot of them!

Formed in 1973, Bad Company went onto define classic rock as we know it with a string of hit singles throughout the 70’s and 80’s. Songs such as “Feel Like Making Love,” “Shooting Star” and “Bad Company” are still staples on every classic rock station in the country. Live at Wembley is a homecoming of sorts for the band as it features original members, Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke recorded in 2010 on the tail end of the band’s reunion tour in their home country, the U.K.
