Let's see... live you have a visual and audio element to represent, but furthermore, when you play live, you have one chance to get it right, as opposed to the studio, where you eseentially have as many chanes as you need to get something right. The right studio knowledge and producers can make terrible bands sound good in the studio, whereas who you really are comes out live, along with the skills you have don't have.
This figures... I bet you're a big Dream Theater fan, right? Christ.
