so hard to choose and so many factors to consider... a few comes to mind because of factors not especially related to the music...

roger waters at Roskilde because it was just a perfect moment in time in every way. i was sitting on a patch of grass with my girlfriend, surrounded by the roskilde vibe, completely in love, the most beutiful sunset a perfect backdrop. an old happy hippie couple dancing around next to us. i actually cried when he played wish you were here...

kraftwerk in 1998, because they were my heroes. and because i got to grope some norweigian chick with huge tits.

crystal antlers at primavera last year because it was just a kickass gig!

and the best roskilde gig i haven't been to: the dream syndicate at orange in 1986. the cult cancelled and they were flown in from italy. of course i was only 5 and probably watching bamse & kylling at the time of the gig, but judging by the bootleg it was great!

wow ac/dc, naming radiohead as a worst gig, you managed to put yourself down another level, something i didn't think possible.

I think Radiohead was good in 90 s, but now i just don t like them because it is different music now they are playing, i really want to see Radiohead when they did a good rock n roll

In no particular order!

NOFX (Hurricane Festival 2008, Germany)
The Mars Volta (Austin City Limits Festival 2008, Texas; USA)
Anthrax (Sonisphere Festival 2009, Knebworth; England)
The Devil Wears Prada (John Dee 2009, Oslo)
Genghis Tron (Amplifier Bar 2010, Perth; Australia)
Airbourne (Oslo Spektrum 2008, Oslo)
Volbeat (Union Rock 2009, Drammen; Norway)
Franz Ferdiand (Hove Festival 2009, Norway)
The Subways (Hurricane Festival 2008, Germany)
Faith No More (Hove Festival 2009, Norway)
Neurosis (Kanonhallen 2008, Norway)

Two worst... this is harder.

Robert Plant and Allison Krauss (Austin City Limits Festival 2008, Texas; USA) Robert Plant was good of course but that Allison Krauss chick ruined the whole concert for me!
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (Hurricane Festival 2008, Germany) The music is awesome but the live show was extremely boring!

If I may, I saw Radiohead a couple of years ago (in 08) and I think were extremely boring! Yeah the music is good and they had a nice light show but they just didn't do it for me. So it's not the most incomprehenisble thing in the world to list Radiohead as a worst gig...

I think Dinsaur Jr. And Todd Rundgren are great :) but note the gigs i saw. Dinosaur Jr. seemed apathetic. Todd Rundgren was just playing his new album and only two or three old songs. Everyone can have a bad day, so I hope they are better if I Decide to see them again :)
