    What was the greatest concert you have ever been to?
     
  2. I saw Stanley Clarke a few years back. He was playing in a trio (bass, keyboard, drums). Definitely the most memorable show I've seen.

    Deftones live in Toronto.

    They have the best stage presence out of any band. Chino, who is my favorite singer/musician, is the best while performing.

    And Chi, with his crazy ass dreds flying everywhere.

    R.I.P Chi's Dreds.

  5. Zappa early 70's to early 80's (saw him over 2 dozen times- some amazing shows)

    The Police- Zenyatta Mondatta tour 1980

    Paul Simon- Graceland

    Sonny Terry and Brownie Magee 1978 or 79, played acoustically to a club of about 100 people when the PA died. Damn that was good. So quiet you could hear every breath.

    For my money now the most entertaining shows are They Might Be Giants. So nutsy and cool.

    It's probably not cool to admit it, but it was just such a kick in the pants to see them: Rolling Stones, 1989, LA Colesium. With Guns -N- Roses and Living Color.

    Several concerts stand out, each for their own reasons.

    Sept 1992, Orlando Citrus Bowl: Faith No More/ Metallica/ Guns n Roses:

    This was Hetfields's first concert after he burned his arm in a pyro accident. He sang, but his guitar tech played the guitar for him.
    This was also Guns n Roses last big tour before they broke up. I swear Duff was drunk. Maybe they all were. Their playing was pretty ragged, but I still enjoyed them.

    1997, Del Ray Beach, Fl.: Musicians' Exchange,
    Junior Wells: One of his last concerts before his death. What a privilege to see him. During the first set, Wells invited Ronnie Earle up to the stage. Earle and the band played the most wonderful, indescribably emotional rendition of Albert Collins' "If Trouble Was Money, I'd Be a Millionaire." I'll never forget that night.

    1996, Sept.: Pompano Beach Amphitheater: BB King, Kenny Wayne Shepard, several other national and local blues acts.

    The weather was boiling hot. The music was hotter.

    Lollapaloosa, August 1992, Miami, Fl: The year of grunge. Saw Pearl Jam, Sound Garden, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Ministry, among others. What a thrill! But the very next night Hurricane Andrew hit South Florida, reaping havoc on everything it touched. Parts of South Florida are still recovering.

    I guess I've loved almost every concert I've seen. I always leave inspired and happy. There's nothing like live music. No CD can touch it.

    I hevn't been to that many concerts, but I saw Steve Vai in Stockholm, March 2000. For a Vai fan like myself, it was magic. I was high on that experience for weeks thereafter.

    ~sigh~ No one is going to know who these guys are... some might...

    but Sunny Day Real Estate puts on the best live show I've ever seen. SO much energy it's scary. Their lead guitarist was smiling the whole time, and you could just tell he loved what he was doing.

    They are without a doubt the best live show, and that's over some heivyweights I've seen like the Who and DMB.

    A couple good friends love Sunny Day Real Estate. Check out their band, http://www.mysunnydisposition.com.

    You can hear their influence in their music.

    Dude, there is nothing wrong with seeing the Rolling Stones. They're one of the greatest Rock bands ever! And Guns-N-Roses, I would kill to see them! I'm going to see ACDC in April and I'm already freakin out!
