Saw Public Enemy a few years (5?)ago. Flava Flav had a hard time remembering the words...at least they had a vocal track playing in the background so he could try and follow along. Disappointing.

Every time I've seen them (1992, 2008 and last year) they've always delivered. Especially in 2008 where they did 'it takes a nation' in it's entirity. Each time I've seen them I've been blown away.
