    One of the advantages of being old is I....

    Saw Zeppelin
    Saw Gentle Giant (several times)
    Saw King Crimson w Wetton
    Saw the Who w Moon
    Saw Deep Purple w Blackmore
    Saw Genesis w Peter Gabriel

    Still wish I saw the Beatles and Cream, Police, and the Clash.

    ...never saw the Fab-4, either, but I did see Cream and Derek and the Dominoes, as well as the Rolling Stones before Geritol became a part of their diet :smug: . Never saw Police or Clash, but I did see Jimi, as well as The Doors... Zappa... Jethro Tull. Saw Janice Joplin, and Jefferson Airplane... I even saw the Moody Blues... far out and groovy, man! I also attended a rather iconic concert, but I don't remember it... I was at the Cotton Bowl, I believe the year was 1955 or 1956... the headline act was some guy named Elvis! Apparently my mother took my big sister and some of her friends. I was either two or three, so I didn't have a whole lot of interest at the time..., but I was there! :cool:

    Weather Report, Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin, and the Dirty Mac.
  5. I'd love to see Rush, but since Australia isn't exactly their heartland, I can't see them coming here anytime soon. I am saving my pennies for a trip to US for their next tour though.

    +1 for Rammstein

    I saw Pearl Jam a couple of years ago and they fing rocked!! I can't understand why so many TB'ers heap on them. Sure, they might not have the legend status that death has afforded Nirvana, but I like em anyway.;)

    I also was fortunate to see Zappa many times. A true icon who can never be replaced. :(

    Metallica (in the 80's)
    Guns n' Roses
    Rage Against the Machine

    You can still see Black Sabbath, they had the tour last year, but I don't think that quite counts. Even though Ozzy is quite funny nowadays on stage.

    forgot Led Zeppelin

    I wasn't speaking of your list in particular , in fact at least yours was interesting and got specific on the era and everything.

    I guess I am just disappointed at how pedestrian the typical
    Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Doors, Stevie Ray Vaughn thing is. I mean Stevie Ray Vaughn? There are so many more interesting blues people still alive.

    I always think that musicians will have more interesting or ecletic taste than the average schmo, but they semm to be a reflection of society as a whole.

    I was on a comp record in the early 80's with The Misfits, and have seen Black Flag many times. Minor Threat didn't tour that much or at least anywhere besides major cities, so seeing them would have been difficult unless you lived in DC. Bad Brains are really hit or miss. They are currently touring without HR on vocals, but John Joesph friend of the band and former Cro Mag singer in his stead. I have heard that John does a really good job.
