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).

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.
