    LOVED 38 Special

    Being a HUGE Skynyrd fan, 38 Special was right up their too.

    BTW, what ever happened to Southern Rock ?

    Think the last man actually doing Southern Rock (as we know it) today is Hank-3

    Kid Rock does his version of it I guess.

    You are transparent; I see many things... I see plans within plans.

    ^ --- totally outclassed me

    My concerts were usually at Farmers State Fairs (usually held at a local hometown airport)

    Funnel Cake, best pig contests, $2.00 lets you see the smallest horse in the world

    Top it all off Merle Haggard singing Okee From Muskogee

    Man, them were the days

    I saw McCartney on that same tour in '90 in Cleveland. You know you really want to see a concert if you're willing to go to Cleveland to see it. Anyway he was fantastic.
    Best "seats" I ever had were the Bangles in '89. Smallish University venue, where for some reason there was nothing separating the crowd from the stage. We stood touching the stage, two feet from the band. I couldn't hear for a week afterwards.
    Worst concerts, or at least most disappointing has to be Prince in '86 at Syracuse. He was a wonderfully talented musician but he clearly didn't give a damn that night. Oh and someone mentioned Van Halen. I like Van Halen, but their tour a couple of years back was lousy.

    KISS 1977-Alive II/ Love Gun Tour. My legs shaked so bad seeing these guys in the flesh, I could hardly stand. I literally had to hold on to my buddy's shoulder for a few minutes until I got my legs back. An amazing experience. AC/DC opened for them. But at that point they were not yet the name brand they would become in the 80's.

    September 1988, Human Rights Now! Tour at JFK Stadium in Philly: Springsteen & the ESB, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Tracy Chapman all playing sets. It was an incredible night.

    i saw KISS in the late eighties. they weren't the same anymore, without the makeup. Ted Nugent opened for them and put on a way better show. Eric Carr was still alive though so at least I got to see him play

    A conservative estimate is that I've seen about 2,500 bands live over the years. Realize that between 1985 and 1991, I got on the guest list for the shows, seeing about 2 shows a week, each with 2-3 bands. And I still see a lot of bands. 4 shows this month with 10 bands playing between them.

    Soooooooo... it's really hard to even remember all those shows. That said, the ones that stick out-
    1- Black Pistol Fire at the Sinclair in Cambridge, MA.
    2- Prince at the Spectrum in Philly during his Purple Rain tour.
    3- The Who playing Quadrophenia at Madison Square Garden with guest artists and Phil Daniels from the movie.
    4- The Electric Love Muffin's last show at the Khyber Pass in Philly.
    5- The Black Keys playing at a drained public pool in Brooklyn.

    The worst shows-
    -Led Zeppelin at Live Aid. So disappointing.
    -Red Hot Chili Peppers at Temple University's Spring Fling. I had already seen them twice and they were amazing before this show. I was on the committee that booked the band so I was especially annoyed that Anthony Keidis was so drugged out that he didn't perform with the band. Months later Hillel Slovak died from an overdose.
    -Guided By Voices at the Bowery in New York. One of the guitarists was so drunk, he would stop playing for long periods and try and hit on two women in the front.
    WANTED - Solid-Boxed WGSH's, C.8 or better.
