    Hey guys

    just wondering about any bands from the past you wish you would
    have caught live but didnt , whether it was because it was before
    your time or just plain and simply didnt get around to it.

    Im thinking mines would be queen , and im talking early queen , mid 70s
    first couple of albums , that would have been golden.

    Whats yours fellow tbassers:bassist:

    Had tickets to see Jimi Hendrix. The night before the show got caught in my girlfriend's basement at 4 am. Mom and Dad did not appreciate that.

    No Jimi Hendrix.

    Hendrix :(

    I would have liked to have seen RHCP on the Californication tour or BSSM before John lost it....

    Bob Marley

    Sublime

    obviously there are loads more but they are the killers

    Would love to have seen/heard Igor Stravinsky conducting his own material ...or Leonard Bernstein conducting Stravinsky's material.

    Wish I'd been old enough to see Miles Davis in the 60s, or savvy enough to see him in the early 70s.

    Mick Karn with either Japan, Dali's Car, or JBK ...I did get to see him in Mark Isham's band back in 1987 or 88, he was pretty spectacular then, but the music's bass requirements were more laid back than what I like to hear from Mick.

    Eh, that's about it. I've managed to see most of my "heroes" at some point in their career...maybe not at their apex, but still I am left with few regrets.

    So many, I can't count it all...
    The Beatles,
    The Velvet Underground,
    Nick Drake,
    Pink Floyd with Syd,
    Jimi with any band he played with,
    Weather Report with Jaco,
    Coltrane with A Love Supreme band,
    Serge Gainsbourg early on,
    Nina Simone,
    Tim Buckley,
    Jeff Buckley,
    Frank Zappa,
    Humble Pie...

    There's also plenty of those whom I'd love to see and there's still some chance, but I never got to it 'cause they don't come around here often. First of all:
    Tom Waits
    but then also a lot of others like
    Suzanne Vega,
    Joni Mitchell,
    Neil Young,
    Nick Cave...

    A Phil Lynott led Thin Lizzy is the only band I regret missing. I was a bit too young and they didn't hit the states too often towards the end of their run.

    Pretty much every single band I love falls into that category. It's pretty much always been too late for me. I mean some of these bands are still around but they've just been going through the motions for years.
