July 13, 1998 The Forum – Inglewood, CA

Show Notes

Ed screws up the beginning of ‘Habit,’ then takes credit for it by saying, “My bad. Matt, say hello to Matt Cameron, was doing a beautiful job and I fucked it up.” Eddie mentions smoking a cigarette in a public building in California, that he normally wouldn’t, but he was going to do it because he could. He thanks the members of X by name, individually. The “speaking as” break in ‘Habit’ has a different twist: Instead of saying “speaking as,” Ed starts playing guitar, a dark, slow, droning riff reminiscent of ‘This Boy.’ Ed strums on this riff for a few seconds and then Matt begins drumming and Ed sings a bit. They jam on this dark little riff for 20 seconds or so and then silence. A dramatic pause and BAM, back into ‘Habit.’ Breathtaking! Ed changes the lyric in ‘DTE’ to “I’m the first mammal to wet my pants.” Before Wishlist, the band gives a shout out to Tenacious D, and Ed changes the lyric in Wishlist, to “I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as KG,” referring to one of the guys from Tenacious D. ‘Leaving Here’ is introduced as one “… for all the ladies … no, actually it’s for the guys … treat ‘em right.” A very fun show, with Johnny Ramone playing guitar with Mike on the final encore, Ed singing and Stone playing the tambourine with a big, goofy grin on his face. A celebrity studded crowd: Jim Carey spotted side-stage and Gene Simmons (of Kiss) sat behind the soundboard! ‘Black,’ ‘Go’ and ‘Immortality’ are on the setlist, but not played.

Audio 1

We offer all our concerts in FLAC format. FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec and is used to compress sound clips without loss of quality. FLAC is often compared to MP3, only there is a loss of quality when converting to MP3. For the true audiophile, FLAC offers much better quality than MP3.
