I saw them live in Providence RI sometime in the 80's.  After the concert and the standard encores, the lights came up and the roadies started clearing the equipment, but Mark came out and sat on the edge of the stage with just his guitar and played this solo while they worked.  It was wonderful.

Some people find live music on radio stations annoying. For me it depends. This is completely acceptable. 
But some artists have live recordings that are not pleasant to listen to. Some of those recordings just are bad quality for several different reasons. The singer singing just a bit out of tune, the crowd screaming just a bit too much or one instrument out of tune or out of rhythm.  In that case the recording is annoying to my ears. I see a lot of people giving 8 or higher in those cases. I think mostly out of respect of the artist or because of sentimental reasons. Or maybe because they don't hear or care about the imperfections. I don't know. I just want to say that not everyone is a troll in case of live recordings and low ratings.
This an outstanding track,woah✌️
Local Heros was such a great movie. 
We need to encourage the revival of headbands, music has not been the same since they fell out of favor.   Some link between pressure on the frontal lobe  and musical genius I think. Great  guitar on this song.
