I wanna know if anybody's heard stuff that they've never even heard of him performing elsewhere (or at least not in the last twenty years. Who's heard Turning Around live, or maybe Fifteen Year Old Girlfriend, or even Don't Bug Me. I'm dying to know if anybody else has heard Prince of Tides live. Someone once told me that the show in Hilton Head was the only time he ever played that song, and it really peaked my curiosity to know if that performance was really that rare.
I saw him do Prince of Tides at the Columbia, S.C., show in Feb. 2003. I think it was the first time he had done it in a long time, though. It was the last encore song--very nice.

It's not exactly a rare song, and since I'm a worn out old goat my memory may be playing tricks on me, but I swear one year at Jones Beach just before intermission the whole band, except Amy Lee, left the stage. Amy stayed and played Banana Republics solo. Does anyone else remember this?

He did "God's Own Drunk" in 2002? Unless anyone else has heard it since, that could be the latest!

I like this thread, I am one lucky bastard in that I have seen everyone of these songs you all have posted performed live by Jimmy.

My favorite rarities are: My Blue Telescope - John Hiatt
God's Own Drunk - Buckley
No Woman No Cry - Marley
Wind Cries Mary

Was that the same concert where he set off the most spectacular fireworks display I've ever seen? Think it was for him and his wifes anniversary.

The year you're talking about is 2002 during the Far Side tour. It was Jimmy and Jane's 25th anniversary. Awesome fireworks. Amy Lee didn't do Banana Republics at that show though. Maybe another show though.

Sometimes more than others,
we see who and what and where we are,
I'm just a one man band,
With my feet in the sand,
Tonight I just need my guitar
