Oh listen, I don't even know what prompted me to do this thread, because like you, I have dozens of favorites.

I wanted to ask people, who is the best entertainer you've ever seen in person. But then my answers would have varied too.

Ok, I'll answer that one myself. By far, not even a close second, Sammy Davis Jr. He was magic! And I've seen the best..........

I saw Johnny Cash perform. He put on a great show. He was just a bigger than life person. It is hard to believe he is gone.

LOL - you'll have to narrow your "criteria" down to a type of music and a decade.

I'm not sure about ZZ... =/
As much as I love their music... I'm sorry to say that when I saw them in concert two weeks ago, it was weak. They played for 50 minutes (that's including the encore and rounding up), and they hardly spoke to the crowd. I think they managed to say "How're you doing Johnson City?" and then a few little things few and far between. And when they finished, they literally just walked off stage. And their encore was one song - Jailhouse Rock.

Oh well, back onto topic.

Ben Gibbard is another great male vocalist. As is Elton John. I can't believe I forgot him in my other post. Michael Jackson was a good singer before.. Well. You know. Prince is like Michael Jackson, but he plays guitar too. Brian May. Oh my goodness yes. James Hetfield is pretty good too.

I think I'm rambling at this point though. So I'll stop. Sorry. lol

Best entertainer you've seen EVER

I don't know about the decade or what year it was, I was stating about Sammy that he was the best period, that I'd ever seen. No matter what year or decade. I know, many may not know who he is or was, but to those that do, he was perfection in the tiniest package ever. And I thought I was little
