My very first concert I was a Freshman in High School in 1969. I saw Humble Pie and Grand Funk Railroad at Shea Stadium in New York. It was excellent.

I'd give my right arm to see Humble Pie. And 1969! Steve Marriott at (one of) his peak(s)!

My first concert was Santana, in 1971. Then I started going to every concert there was (Rory Gallagher, Genesis, Jethro Tull, Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor & Jack Bruce, lots of British bands I don´t even remember...) Then I started working in the rock scene and I couldn´t list all the concerts I was at for some 25 years, the best ones were, as I posted somewhere before, Psychedelic Furs, Dylan, Stranglers, Pretenders, Lou Reed, Violent Femmes, Eric Burdon, King Crimson, Brian Ferry... the Stones, sure... most boring: Michael Jackson, Madonna, U2, Dire Straits (yes, they´re boring live), Simple Minds...

My last good concert was two years ago, David Byrne. I just go to see local bands these times.

got home yesterday from electric picnic, the coolest music festival i've ever been to! it's a boutique festival, with a relatively small crowd and loads of really cool things to see and do. it's was so pretty with papier mache creations in all the trees, arts and crafts everywhere and gourmet food and drink. i had such a great time. even though the weather was a bit rubbish and i didn't get any sleep due to a sole jungle-music loving girl who had it blaring from 2-10am while she sat there alone with a can in her hand. if i had realised it was just one person listening to it i definitely would have switched it off! my boy and i are pretty softcore - we left after the music on sunday night and went to stay in a hotel, covered by his business expenses since he was working in the area on monday - i never enjoyed a hot bath, clean towels and a warm comfortable bed more in my life!

i saw/heard bits and pieces or the entirety of the following acts!

I won't say absolutely not, but I don't have tickets yet and they are kind of expensive...but you never know; Atlantic City is only three hours away....and they have been doing "Sway". You saw them do that one in Tokyo, didn't you, ya bastard? I just got that concert on bootleg DVD. Will I see you in it anywhere?

Actually, no...I've never been to Branson or Nashville. I believe all of the concerts I've seen were in Portland, Oregon; Phoenix, AZ; or northern California; all places I've lived. By the way, I forgot Johnny Rodriguez, Slim Whitman, Little Jimmy Dickens, Buddy Alan, and Barbara Fairchild. And does it count if I saw Chris Montez lip-synch in person?

No, I don't think it does...

I saw Ian Anderson for the second time on Wednesday night. He brought a whole orchestra with him, replete with clarinet players, cellists and violinists, and he did mostly Jethro Tull songs. We had seats dead center in the front rooow. At no time was I more than eight feet away from the man himself. I was so close, he nearly spit on me when he started blowing that flute.

Until the other night, I never realized how much Ian Anderson resembles Marty Feldman. You give ol' Eyegore a beard, a flute, and one of those black stocking headwrap things, and you couldn't tell the two apart.

OK then....just kidding anyway. See Ian whenever you can, he is a wonderful entertainer. I saw Tull during a tour called Tullivision and it was great. In the pouring rain at Shea Stadium. Warm up acts were Rory Gallagher and Robin Trower.
