So as an example...Metallica

They were great from the 1st album, Kill em All to their 3rd album Master of Puppets. That covers prime Metallica 83-88

So name a band who hit thier prime, but sucked for atleaste twice s long?

No one hit wonders here

The Rolling Stones.

Good until Exile and then shit from then on (we're talking studio albums here - they could rely on their live stuff playing all their old songs).

Opeth were great before he decided actual metal was beneath him. Acoustic prog? No thanks.

Show me the way to St Louis
Red Hot Chili Peppers had a hot streak, they've been shit since Californication
Came here to post this. In 1996 my friend was a drum tech for the support band on the “one hot minute” tour so we got to see a few shows. Blood Sugar and One hot minute were gold.
The rest is just rinse and repeat. Californication is iconic I probably shoulda mentioned that too.

1987 was their cut of point for good stuff - Joshua Tree?
Yeah pretty much. With the exception of one or two stuff.

What's funny is while I think they are not very good they are still world class to go and see live. They certainly know how to put on a show even for people who are there pretty much with somebody else. That's quite rare I think.

I'm told they're ace live. A mate of mine who is a Metalhead (please pardon the phrase) saw them in the '90s when he got chucked a free ticket by his girlfriend. He said they were excellent live - and he had no prior love of the band.

This kind of happened to me at Leeds when I saw Pulp. I was never into them and had only ever heard the hits, but fuck were they good live. Jarvis Cocker is one of those David Bowie-type character in that he was meant to walk a stage (as was DB), it just seemed so natural to him. A rare talent.
