I am biased toward anything Chris Cornell does, but his performance of Billie Jean in Toronto earlier this year blew me away. I've watched it a couple of hundred times on YouTube, as I live far to the South of y'all. Lucky ducks!

Awesome list, can't wait to peruse the songs I've never heard before. Pete never told me about this.
