That's good news for my brother, sister, and other FNM fan friends who were not able to catch the live, streaming performance as it fell during our workday.

The Faith No More videos are very amusing. Surprised they still got it.

If I get time, I'm definitely going to watch some sets. Be interesting to see how different they sounded on the stream. I watched a few Faith No More ones on youtube and the sound was so soft... in real life Mike's screams were ear-shattering!

Yeah, I can imagine. Do you know if he did anything strictly metal besides early Mr. Bungle EPs? I'd love to hear his shrieks and screams backed up by some really heavy music!
