ritchie---i've wondered this as well. b. ward is so off the fuckin chain in this concert, but almost never again lives up to it. there is footage where he's rockin the fuck out, for sure, but in that concert, especially "war pigs," he's definitely at his peak (at least on video...who friggin' knows about real life?)....
anyway, i figure he was younger, more energetic/exuberant, and also the massive amounts of beer slowed him down and clouded his brain in later years.
still, though...it's not like he sucked after that concert. one of my favorite drummers ever!
