Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Live is a three-DVD set featuring rare, one-of-a-kind performances from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, filmed over the course of its 24-year history. The biggest names in rock ‘n' roll perform in intimate settings, jamming in combinations not seen anywhere else. Plus, the DVDs feature exclusive, anything-goes induction speeches by rock royalty, along with rare behind-the-scenes footage.

Among the artist jam sessions, you'll see Bruce Springsteen and Bono share a microphone on U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"; Mick Jagger and Tina Turner perform a sultry duet on the Stones' "Honky Tonk Women"; the original three members of Cream take the stage for the first time in 25 years for a blistering "Sunshine of Your Love"; and a jaw-dropping version of the Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There" with George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, John Fogerty, Mick Jagger, and Billy Joel.

For nearly a quarter century, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has honored the music's most influential figures at prestigious black-tie induction ceremonies where performers and audience alike let down their hair and rejuvenate themselves through exciting, once-in-a-lifetime performances. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Live captures all the excitement of those ceremonies, from the wise and witty speeches to the most incredible combinations of talent ever assembled on a single stage.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Mark Deming
As the old joke goes, "How do you get to Carnegie Hall?" "Practice!" Sometimes you can get a group of talented musicians together and they can spontaneously come up with something amazing, but that doesn't happen as often as some folk like to imagine, and that's one of the unwitting lessons to be learned from this collection of video footage from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's archives. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame + Museum: Live is a three DVD set drawn from speeches and performances at the HOF's annual induction ceremonies, and one of the selling points is this package includes previously unreleased footage of the all-star jam sessions that typically conclude the ceremonies. However, after watching a few of these numbers, it becomes obvious that when you bring several dozen people who have never played together on one stage and ask them to dive into a song without rehearsal, no matter who they are the results are often a bit of a mess. While a few of the jams work pretty well -- Neil Young leading the assembled musicians through Bob Dylan's "All Along The Watchtower" with a feral intensity is a highlight -- most are sloppy and look like they were a lot more fun for the participants than the audience (you've probably seen teenage garage bands play the Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There" with greater confidence than George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Mick Jagger, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel and a few other legends reveal as they make clear that tune is a bit more complicated than you think). These performances also include a number of one-time-only collaborations, some inspired and some not; Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters look incredibly jazzed to be playing "Tie Your Mother Down" with the surviving members of Queen and they push the band to a grand performance, and it's great to see former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green trading licks with Carlos Santana on "Black Magic Woman" (which Green wrote), but Kid Rock adds nothing to Aerosmith's "Walk This Way" and as well meaning as Jackson Browne and Melissa Etheridge may be, when they sing "Wake Up Little Suzie" together it's a long way from what the Everly Brothers did with the tune. Most of the acts fare much better in their induction performances, but they're also running through tunes they've literally played hundreds of times before, and sometimes they have a hard time making the umpteen run through "Highway To Hell," "American Girl" or "Tush" sound all that special. The induction and acceptance speeches run hot and cold, but the best are as entertaining as anything on this set; many of these performers are clearly moved to see their legacy honored, and just about any band would be grateful to have a fan as passionate and articulate about their virtues as Flea as he inducts Metallica. The irony of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame + Museum: Live is that the more committed and passionate music fans are the ones most likely to be annoyed with its flaws, while more casual listeners will probably enjoy the parade of stars and be less concerned with its inconsistencies; the best moments are very good indeed, but this is a very mixed bag.

    The First 25 Years

    I picked up this collection last week and have really enjoyed it. Its great to see again some of the performances, introductions and acceptance speeches. I wish this were a longer set, but what is presented here is first rate. For the most part, the sound and picture are very clear and clean. What's odd, as has been noted elsewhere, is that the material is not presented in chronological order, even to the point where an acceptance speech is on one disk and the performance by that same artist is on another. But that wasn't really a detraction for me. Some of the highlights include: The Doors performing "Light My Fire" with vocals by Eddie Vedder; Jefferson Airplane performing "Volunteers" (though in the absence of Grace Slick, the then-current Jefferson Starship vocalist Diana Mangano is relegated to the role of back-up singer); Santana's amazing performance of "Black Magic Woman" accompanied by original Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green; George Harrison's son Dhani joining a version of the Traveling Wilburys performaing "Handle With Care" as a tribute to George (the band is then joined by Prince playing a monstrous guitar solo on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"); REM performing "Man on the Moon" with Eddie Vedder; Aerosmith playing "Sweet Emotion" with Kid Rock (the choruses sound pretty awful, but the rest of the song is killer); the Mamas and the Papas doing "California Dreaming" (Michelle looks genuinely thrilled to be there); and Queen doing "Tie Your Mother Down" accompanied by Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters. But probably the best moment is Metallica's performance of "Master of Puppets", which is just on fire. They also have both Jason Newsted and Robert Trujillo on bass, which is cool. They show that they still have their legendary stage prowess. So to music fans who love all aspects of rock -- who get as big a thrill out of seeing the Mamas and the Papas as they do Metallica -- this set is highly recommended.
