Bands You Want to See Live, but never will.

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by MikeyFingers, Jan 30, 2006.


  1. I know I'm not the only one who wishes they could see the endless plethora of great bands that don't exist anymore. What bands do you wish would magically come back for just one more show?

    The Doors
    Led Zeppelin
    The Beatles
    Stevie Ray Vaughn
    Jimi Hendrix
    and more then anyone else:
    Jaco Pastorius.




    I finally got to say plethora!! WHOOPIE!

    ...at 53, I've been fortunate to see most of the rock icons mentioned. Having gone to UT (2005 Nat'l Champs! YeeeHawww, y'all!), and living in Austin back in the 70s, I got to see SRV before he became really famous. May you continue to rest in peace, Stevie...

    I know they are still touring but *every* time they are near I can't go for some reason or another. And the one time I made it to a concert, Lemmy broke his arm the night before and had to cancel. It just isn't ment to be :meh:
