    I got to see Gun & Roses on their first club tour in a small club with only 300 people on Halloween. I can't remember who opened, it might have been LA Guns. I have to say Axel's voice was really great on the first tour and just progressively got worse. I saw them play with Aerosmith once and get completely schooled.

    Farley, I can't believe somebody beat me to Captain Beyond!! My hat is off to you, sir. Lee Dorman went to my high school (before my time). If they were able to pull that stuff off live, they must have been killer.

    There are too many to list here, but one I was thinking about just this morning: the New Barbarians, with Stanley Clarke and Keith Richards. What must that have been like? I don't think they had any official recordings... did they? Anybody see that act live, or have any bootlegs? I'd love to get ahold of anything available!

    Also would love to have seen the Wooten Brothers when Victor was a little kid, opening for Curtis Mayfield. Curtis Mayfield himself, for that matter.
    Better stop, I could go on all day..

    PS, I just googled & found out Ron Wood, Ian McLagan and Bobby Keyes were in on the New Barbarians, and best of all, the drummer was Zigaboo Modeliste of the Meters!! So it was the Stones, minus Jagger, Wyman and Watts. Jagger even guested on some shows. But Stanley and Ziggy! Man, I'd love to hear some of that!

    can i add an individual?

    Michael Jackson (circa late 80s). too bad he's the way he is now, because he is undoubtedly the most awesome entertainer to have ever lived. i have seen videos of his concerts, and i was too young the last time he came to Australia, but he is just incredible.

    Also, the funk brothers. they were smokin' on the 'Standing in the shadows of motown' DVD.
  9. I get depressed ever time i think of it but I'd love to see nirvana back in the glory days. I really, really, really would love to have been born in say the 50's and catch just about all of my favorite bands live.

    I'm depressed now. Way to go.

    Oh and add Sublime to that list ! Am I the first one to list 'em ?!
  20. I saw the New Barbarians at the old Omni in Atlanta. It was absolutely one of the greatest shows I've ever seen. They played a couple of Ron Wood's solo songs, some Stones stuff, and some covers. I can't remember the song that Stanley took a "lead" on, but I know it was a Stones song and the whole Omni was on its feet for him. That was for me the greatest live "bass moment" I've EVER heard. I later saw Stanley when he was touring behind "Rocks, Pebbles, and Sand" and although it was a fantastic show, it still didn't measure up to the three or four minute lead he took with the Barbarians. SMOKIN'!!!!!!!!! I also remember that Keith fell down during the show (surprisingly, he was pretty wasted), but his playing was also pretty tasty. The opening act was Piano Red, a local blues pianist. He had to extend his set for about thirty minutes because the Barbarians were late.

    Bands I wish I could have seen or seen again:

    The Who (original line up, circa "Live At Leeds")
    Pink Floyd (had a damn GREAT ticket for the "Animals" tour and got grounded a f*&^ing week before the show. My friends said it was killer, but the crappy part was the guy I sold the ticket to polished a bottle of cheap vodka and "other" things and then passed out. He missed the whole damn show)
    Rolling Stones (early seventies)
    Ramones (for the 23rd time!)
    UFO (a second time with Mogg, Schenker, Way, Raymond, and Parker)
    Butthole Surfers (again)
    Johnny Cash
    Chris Whitley
    Oasis (circa 93)
    Junior Brown (with Mitch Mitchell, yes THAT Mitch Mitchell on drums)
    Joy Division
    Jesus and Mary Chain (again)
    R.L. Burnside (again)
    Stooges (in 69)
    The Wailers (Marley and Tosh)
    The Specials
    Little Feat (with Lowell George)
