maybe that is why pete wasn't such a huge fan of this particular show and 
they had to do it over again at shepperton. he WAS having guitar problems, at one 
point you see him throwing a hissy fit, throwing a drink off the speaker and 
twiddling knobs all over the place.  maybe the audio problems are actually the 
problems pete himself was having with the sound of his axe.  great show 
though nonetheless in my opinion.  as agonizing as those moments may have been for 
the band, for us the fans, it just makes the show alot more interesting and 
entertaining to watch. 

my personal favorite moment above all on the DVD set is the banter between 
pete and keith on the coliseum 69 show before "quick one".  

"we play the private parts!" 
"very little movement."   

priceless. : )
