I've only been to one concert, and that was Carlos Santana. I don't really listen to his music much, but there's no denying he's one of the best guitarists. It was pretty cool, he played all the classics, and hardly anything new. Also, there was a good 20 minute drum solo. I would like to go to more concerts, but most of my favorite bands have either dead members, or incredibly high ticket prices, or scalpers that take all the tickets, and then sell them for a higher price. I might go to a White Stripes concert this year though. I'm pretty sure they're still alive and well.

I found an enveloppe with old backstages yesterday, it was in the bottom of a suitcase... Prince, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Bob Dylan, Elton John, U2, Ultravox, REM... I can´t even remember these concerts!! I guess that my real concerts were those I attended as part of the audience, even if I had free tickets, but not as a journalist... then you can see and listen, when you´re there with the "know-it-alls" you´re always at the bar and don´t even pay attention to what´s on stage.

I still would love to see Neil Young live... and Bob Seger.

my friend and i used to tear articles on bands that we like out of magazines from the library, we even stole two copies of the same issue of rolling stone. so i collecetd all the articles in a folder and i keep the ticket stubs with the article on the appropriate mucisian (yes i'm a bit of freak)

That´s not being a bit of a freak, it´s just normal. I had a house full of magazines, reviews, souvenirs, etc. I had to throw 90% of it when I moved as I didn´t have room for that much nostalgia, but I still have some stuff.

I've seen a LOT of concerts. Nirvana, Rush, Primus, Pearl Jam, Green Day, Soundgarden, Tool, White Zombie, Chili Peppers, Metallica... Seen many of these bands many times, and many more... too many to list. But none compared to Pink Floyd... I saw them 2 times on the 94 Division Bell tour, and the greatness of those shows have never been surpassed, until Saturday. I was in Hyde Park, and I witnessed the greatness firsthand, and without commercial interruption... I am one lucky MFer... Pink Floyd is the greatest band ever and the fact that I saw them, complete again, that I can die a happy man, well, it makes it easy to deal with being broke and having maxxed credit cards. :thumbsup:

The first concert I attended was The Lovin' Spoonful. I was about 11 or 12 and my parents took me. They had the good etiquitte not to sit with me!

The Standells

Paul Revere and the Raiders

Gary Puckett and the Union Gap

The Association

I am sure I left out many. In the 70's there was a great concert in Houston almost every weekend and tickets were cheap in those days. We paid over $100/ticket the last time we saw the Stones in 2003 and worth every penny!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

Def Leppard ( At least twice)

Yes ( They are great!) I think I saw them twice

Saw a Rod Stewart impersonator Rob Hanna he was really good.

George Michael

Michael Bolton ( I was in my mellow faze. My boyfriend fell asleep

Smokey Robinson ( My boyfriend was mad he only likes the song "Tears of a Clown" and he didn't sing it)

New Kids On The Block (took my daughter to see them it was her first concert

Hootie and the Blowfish (2)

Live (They were great)

Puddle Of Mudd (kind of disapointing lead singer seemed out of it.) They played with Nickleback they were good.

No Doubt with Blink 182

Train

Lifehouse

Default and Goo Goo Dolls

Huey Lewis and the News( they were at our State Fair last year. They are good.)

I'm sure there are more just can't think right now. We have been getting alot of good bands at our State Fair lately. Also one of the radio stations here has a thing every year on the river and they have at least 5 bands.
