Kix, 'Yeah, Yeah, Yeah' in HD from M3 Festival

While I was clicking around YouTube last night I came across some awesome clips of various bands playing the M3 festival last Saturday. When I came across this Kix clip of "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" I just had to post. The sound is great! It looks like the clip was shot from about the third row and the video is very stable. If you didn't get a chance to catch the M3 fest, watch and enjoy. If you were there, click and remember the fun.

That was the first time I saw KIX, and I was impressed.

"Yeah, Yeah, Yeah"...

The song is good the first time, for sure, so I'm glad you saw 'em do it, but if Whiteman's going to remark that they've only got enough time to do 10 songs, why didn't he cut this from the set altogether, as it weighs in at a whopping 14 minutes?

They could have done far batter songs like "For Shame", "Hotwire", "Tear Down The Walls", "Cool Kids", the list goes on and on...

And not only that, they coulda played 4 of 'em during the time it takes to perform "Yeah X 3", which is basically a white boy rap. As funny as it is, it gets a little tiring. I was actually fortunate to hear them do this minus Whiteman's comedy set in the middle of it and as you can tell, it's actually a h*lluva song. Ixnay on the banteray, Steve. Por Favor!

True, the sound was descent but not until 2/3rd's of the way in. Forsythe was plagued with sound levels set too low on his guitar and joined a legion of people on stage from Kip Winger to Klaus Meine to Vince Neil (who went spectacularly apesh*t several times during his set) and more that I watched all day long motioning off to the sound mixer to either 1) Krank it up or 2) Krank it up even louder.

Bottom line, M3 needs better (and louder) sound to spare. But never fear, Metalboy! is here and trust me, whether you knew or cared about this issue is neither "hear" nor there (ouch) -- I have my ways and it will be fixed next year.

p.s. How do I know you don't need to hear "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" every single time you see Kix? I figure I've seen 'em about 23 times and only twice did they not play it and believe me, you don't need to hear it every time you see 'em. Argh! In fact, you could even argue you don't need to see 'em 23 times (if it weren't for the ever amusing and inimitable Ronnie Younkins (who, by the way was a house and billboard painter in the late 90's, if you want to lament how close to destruction Glam Metal was until people like Allyson started a concerted effort to "Bring Back Glam". Now, thanks to people like her, Kix are playing L.A. for the first time in 20 years AND doing so at no less than The House of Blues! IF Nikki and the L.A. Boys have any brains, they'll be up there.

Kix was great, as usual. Looking at the crowd, as they came out, was neat, because EVERYONE was on their feet.

Just for your information metalboy... Ronnie was never a house and billboard painter. Than was the other guitarist... Brian. He worked with a relative painting when he first moved to L.A.

You also have to remember metalboy that a good majority of those people in attendance had never seen KIX, Therefor, I do believe Yeah, Yeah, Yeah in a must for a setlist. I've watched KIX from on stage twice at Rocklahoma and once at M3 and trust me... from my vantage point you must have been the only one there that didn't enjoy it.
