    Live versions of cetain songs

    Hey guys!

    Now will all know Eddie was a tad bit "All over the map" to his approach
    when playing live in 2004.

    I was wondering if anyone thought he played "Seventh Seal" an octave
    or two lower then say 1995 shows??

    An octave as you say, would be so low that Mike would be playing lead on it. However, the boys usually play all the songs a half step down. Most bands do this so the singer doesn't haver to struggle with higher notes. They did this back with Dave, all the way through Gary. So to answer your question, yes it does seem like they played it a half step down.
