    Best concert I was ever at, I shit you not, is Weird Al Yankovic. :thumbsup:

    The rest in no particular order:

    Deep Purple
    Grand Funk
    Jon Luc Ponty
    Buddy Rich
    Journey (before Steve Perry)
    Doobie Brothers
    Molly Hatchet
    Johnny Winters
    Lynyrd Skynyrd
    Marshall Tucker
    Gary Wright
    Emerson Lake and Palmer
    Jethro Tull (although I thought Ian Anderson sucked that night)

    One of my greatest regrets is missing Pink Floyd in concert. Had a chance to go see them on the Animals tour and just didn't have the money. :(

    Nice list man, Deep Purple would be one id have like to see, plus America and Grand Funk, Kansas, Journey. Il bet they were great shows. I was lucky to see Pink Floyd, but Waters wasn't with them, it was a great show though, Learning to Fly album. Tull was great when i saw him, guess everyone has a bad night.

    Thanks for posting man:Rasta:

    Don't have to thank me. I think you had a great idea for a thread. :D

    Journey was the opening band for Jethro Tull. Journey played stuff from their first three albums and the crowd was in party cruise control. Then before Jethro Tull came out, one of the roadies came out and started with this huge list of shit Ian Anderson didn't like and wouldn't tolerate. Of course, as soon as the band came out everyone did all that stuff. :thumbsup:

    The band played great, but Anderson had his panties in a bunch and kept breaking into his flute parts with loud snorting noises. It was really irritating.

    My concert choices are a little different...but I thought I would chime in! :jointsmile:

    Sublime (some people thought bradley was awful in concert, but I'm such a big sublime fan, i was just excited to be there!)

    Metallica (even though I can't stand Lars, they are magnificent in concert!)

    Tom Petty (come on, it's tom petty....of course it was great! :jointsmile:)

    Rage against the Machine (I saw them about 4 times from my junior year till I was like 21....there ain't nothing like a RAGE show!)

    Pepper (I love them, they are from Hawaii and have a reggae/ska/island sound and put on a great show!)

    I've seen quite a few shows in my day....these are just a few of my favorites! :jointsmile:

    I like alot of different music styles... Wish I could have been around for Floyd and Zeppelin...

    Any slayer concert that ive been too is great..

    Metallica, Pantera, Black Sabbath, Ozzy, too many to list.

    Basically anything good thats playing at the Merriweather (sp?) post in columbia maryland. One of the loudest venues on the planet. Nearly lost my breakfast when I saw Prodigy there. Bass was unbelievable!

    Oh ya also Cypress Hill! Was the highest i have ever been at that concert. Just spliffs of the dank roll past you every 2-3 minutes. Was a great time!

    Awesome thread!

    Have to say my number one "kick ass" show was Nine Inch Nails. Great live show. One singular energy of 40,000 people screaming out Reznor lyrics together. Very moving indeed.

    Korn was good live but full of too many teeny boppers and trash. I love metal, but really don't understand the concept or reasoning behind a "mosh pit". Buncha idiots bound and determine to ruin everyone elses good time if you ask me.

    Saw Cypress Hill back in like 93' in Chicago. It left a lasting impression on me. I've been high ever since :D

    Still waiting to find my Tool show :( Never been able to catch em'.

    Have been to a coupla, but I'd say it was...

    ...RUSH, performing in Calgary, at the Saddledome, a coupla years back.

    Tho the 'dome wasn't full, the energy was insane, and we even got to sing Neal Peart "Happy Birthday" for his 50th...

    I swear, there wasn't a person there who was either breathing or blinking when he launched into The Rhythm Method.

    Some serious weed going 'round, too! I brought some fine Calgary Purple Haze... :pimp:

    I will be revealing my age.lol
    The best band I have ever seen live is Heart, twice, they are the most talented musicians I have ever seen. Saw Alice Cooper live, he was ok, saw Led Zepplin live in LA I think in 74, was disapointed with them. Loved the Guess WHo at the Paramount in Seattle.

    I tried to post this last night, but the site had to many people in it or something. You saw Zepplin:thumbsup:You gotta brag on your age for that. Wow ya gotta try to put some details with that show man.

    I never saw Heart, but at one point i had all their CD's. I used to DJ, we played pretty much what we wanted to, which was mostly classic rock. We did it for fun free beer and a few bucks, but mostly we got to control the house, well an get drunk as hell, lol. I remember at a wedding, we were playing''The Pusher'' and the mother of the bride said ''turn it off'', she was going on about using the lords name in vain. We just kept telling her she was not hearing it correctly, till the song ended. I had the most fun with this, hell sometime we played just for beer, lol. Thanks for posting, and your lucky man, Led Zepplin...........:thumbsup:

    yes, I must concur, KW, seeing Zep in L.A. in '74 is definately brag worthy! I would love to have seen them but I am just a little bit younger I guess. not much tho. :jointsmile:

    I did see Pink Floyd in L.A. in '93 (ish) and that's gotta go down as one of my favorites. I think they were all in the band that year.

    I also got to see great Buddy Guy show in Hollywood at this little club on sunset. Eric Clapton was known to show up every year at this event and this time was no exception. that was probably my coolest concert experience. we were right in front. :cool:

    The Rolling Stones at the L.A. Coloseum. :smokin:

    seeing Metallica literally bringing down the house in the monsters of rock in the Coloseum was pretty cool. got some great photo's of it, I'll post them if I can find them. saw those boys four times. :Rasta:

    Rush! always an awesome experience. seen them many many times. :cool:

    saw Cheap Trick when I was in high school at the old lady on brady. festival seating. :pimp: which, for us, meant front row center stage every time :Rasta: right in front of Rick Neilson with all his double neck guitars, his beatles guitar, the black and white checkered guitar, etc., etc. . . . :smokin:

    oh yeah, :Rasta: Jane's Addiction in '87 or '88 (just right before they hit it f'n big time) at the coop pizza place in the student union. just coming back from the computer lab, come and to get some pizza and these dudes start setting up. I stuck around for the show . . . :S5:
