Old men trying to be rebellious youth look ridiculous.

That's rather sad. In the late 80's I discovered their stuff just a few year after they originally broke up. I would have paid a great deal to see them in the late 80's or 90's, but sounds like 2007 was a bit late according to your post. However, I did see Stewart Copeland on an episode of Storage Wars a few years ago and he seemed just as energetic as ever.

I was there as a teenager.
I like the song Radioactive -- did they have any other hits?

Videos for sure- its a great live idea but they are simply now too old - Knebworth 1979, Earls Court 1975, and of course the song remains the same. Simply astounding... frankly I am surprised that they did not ride harder with Jason on drums,but, I read he was having issues like his dad and maybe JPJ simply had no desire to continue. ... they had and kept their divine appointment and we LOVED it..

Jason was playing with them in 1979?

No- my bad- Jason played with them and practiced with them for a while after John died -it just never took- I would have seen that grouping .. I guess he was indistinguishable from John according to the other band members!!
Knebworth 1979 was all John !

Satisfaction Guaranteed...

Jimmy Page looked very Led Zeppelinish in this video -- still not Zep though.

LuvOC, what did you think of the Coverdale-Page project?

I liked In my time of Dying. I don't know of any others songs. I also LOVED Robert Plant's colab with Alison Krauss.
