    Default Amazing TV performances

    Brilliant, funny, stupid, sad. Any genre will do, but mine are mainly rock. One or two videos per post pls.

    Not a big fan of this tune, or even this era of Young, but definitely the zenith of this particular variant of trailer park rock. He apparently had his personal trainer back stage putting him through his paces for an hour backstage beforehand to get him pumped up:

    St Vitus' dance from Iggy on Dinah. Bowie looks on in awe:



    Both of these are borderline laughable, which is probably one of the hallmark of greatness.

    Yeah, big fan of all the Dinah stuff. The Bowie/Iggy interview afterwards is very endearing too.

    Funk is basically the prog rock of Black music isnt it?

    Buju on the execrable Jools Holland. Remember being very impressed by this at the time.

    Shy FX on Channel 4's Flava circa 1996. Have never been able to find that video - in fact, there was tons of good stuff on that show and none of it is on YT.
