Here is a live performance from May 22, 1979 live at the BBC
And Here’s A Modern Day Performance from March 2015
I’ve just arrived back from a band practice with a group I jam with occasionally. We finished it off with with a jam of Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting. What a great song to jam. So driven. So energetic.
It’s easy enough to jam once every one in the band gets down those few “in between” parts. Oddly enough even though I provided the transcription most of the band mates just played by ear and jammed along so I originally had to shout out a few chord changes but at this point I think we’ve got it pretty tight. It was an awesome jam!
This is Elton John and the band rocking it out when the song was still fairly fresh back in 1974
Here’s a version of the tune I really like – covered by The Who
