That's fair enough, for those of us who are only in our early 20's now we'd have been lucky to see them in 2001/2002 and definitely not before then. So I'm gonna stick by what I said, their show is fantastic, I thoroughly enjoyed it and I also thought they were among the best live bands I've seen. Mastodon were also excellent.
