You have good taste in music. First off, I've seen Rush twice and both times was absolutely ass kicking. Very few things I actually remember when I'm that f*ckin zoned out on drugs and I remember both Rush shows vividly. King Crimson was also an awesome play. They opened for Tool out here in Seattle a few years back in a small venue called the Paramount. Holds about 1600 seats. WOW!!!! I also saw Staind and Korn in the Key Arena a few years ago, and that was another ass kickin show. Except of course for Jonathan Davis wearing a kilt and going 15 feet in the air. You know what they wear under those kilts right? Yuck.

To the poster that wrote Queen with Freddie, check out the new Queen video with Paul Rodgers recorded last May in England. I didn't think it would be that good, but I own 125 concert videos which include two with Freddie, and this new one is in my top five.

Since I'm a little older than many of you, here's some shows I have seen.

Vanilla Fudge (right after Ed Sullivan appearance) 1968
Allman Brothers (at a club) 1969 (just before first album)
Jethro Tull (best concert I ever saw, see Isle of Wight video) 1972
Deep Purple (too much jamming, not enough Gillan) 1972
Uriah Heep w/Manfred Mann Earth Band (original Heep was incredible) 1974
Atlanta Rhythm Section w/LeRoux (good show) 1977
Blackfoot w/Johnny Van Zant Band (both very good) 1978
Styx (Grand Illusion tour, excellent) 1979
Journey w/The Babys (18,000 soldout, great show) 1980
Billy Squier w/Saga (Saga blew Squier away) 1982
Molly Hatch (Danny Joe Brown just returned, excellent) 1983
Foreigner w/Bryan Adams (Foreigner 4 Tour was excellent) 1983
ZZ Top w/Sammy Hagar (Eliminator tour was hi-tech, both great) 1983
Def Leppard w/Gary Moore & Krokus (loudest show ever) 1984
Scorpions w/Bon Jovi (Scorps excellent, no one knew who BJ was) 1984
U2 (Unforgetable Fire tour, excellent no frills show) 1986
The Police (one time reunion, excellent) 1986
Peter Gabriel (I started collecting everything he made) 1986
Pink Floyd (impressive) 1988
Peter Gabriel (could of been louder, but good) 1993
Boston (pefect sound, both singers appeared) 1995
Styx w/Kansas (both bands highly recommend) 1996
Jethro Tull & Emerson Lake & Palmer (disappointing) 1996
Grand Funk (all 3 original members, fantastic show) 1998

I know there are about 20 more shows but my brain no longer remembers. Bands I wished I had saw in their prime were definitely the Doors, Jimi Hendrix, the Who and Fleetwood Mac.

Current Bands I like to see are Collective Soul, 10 Years and the current Doors with Ian Astbury of the Cult, I have the video and it's probably my favorite live video.

DeepPurple:

You're not that much older than me.....of all those you listed here are the ones that I managed to see in person:

Allman Brothers - (You can thank Cher for screwing this band up)
Atlanta Rhythm Section w/LeRoux (good show)
Styx - (I still will occasionally put on the old album and listen to them)
Journey ( I hate the version of this band that was traveling a few years back)
Foreigner w/Bryan Adams (Foreigner 4 Tour was excellent) AMEN
U2 - (Too bad Bono has become commerical)
The Police- (Loved them before the popularity hit...)
Pink Floyd (impressive)
Boston (pefect sound, both singers appeared) 1995
Styx w/Kansas (I didn't think I would like this concert but did)
Jethro Tull & Emerson Lake & Palmer (not disappointing, it just plain sucked) 1996
Grand Funk (all 3 original members, fantastic show) 1998

You're not that much older than me.....of all those you listed here are the ones that I managed to see in person:

I just remembered two more and updated my post, ZZ Top in 1983 and Uriah Heep in 1974. I graduated from high school in 1968 but the first concert I had a chance to see was Vanilla Fudge, and that was in an armory with about 2000 people sitting on the floor. They had "You Keep Me Hangin' On" playing all over the radio at the time and but very few rock bands came to my area, St. Petersburg, Florida, and when they did they only played the armory. Probably if I could of made it down to Miami I could of seen the Doors and Zeppelin and others but back then in high school I had a shitty car and usually not a lot of money and most of my friends were in the same situation.

We had a nice civic center, The Bayfront Center, that opened about 1964 but only shows like the circus and conventions used the place. The only concert I remember at the civic center was a Dick Clark event with Paul Revere and the Raiders, Keith and Tommy Roe, I thought about going but didn't. 1970 and 1971 I was in basic training and tech school and then in Korea for 13 months, so I really didn't get to see a large civic center show until 1972 when I was stationed in Savannah, Georgia and saw Deep Purple and Jethro Tull. The Tull show was "Thick as a Brick" and if you've seen the new video "Live at the Isle of Wight" they appeared just like that. He had the long-tail plaid coat, the hair and beard and was wild, in accordance with the album, people dressed like rabbits and hopped across the stage, giant phones would ring, it was to this day the most impressive show I've seen. The 1996 Tull show with ELP I saw wasn't even like the same band.

I can see pretty much any current band, so by definition I'd most want to see bands that are no longer in operation.

1. The Beatles of the late 60s (should be at the top of everyone's list).
2. Glenn Miller
3. The Beach Boys
4. Boston (They're gone, right?)
5. Frank Sinatra (young)

I've seen the Grateful Dead, but I would have loved to have been old enough to see them in the mid 70's.

I'd love to have seen The Doors in the late 60's, Bob Marley in the 70's, and the Talking Heads or The Cure in the 80's.

It's not a band, but it would have been cool to have been at the original Woodstock.

I've pretty much have seen everybody. One of my first shows ever, was Kiss. I wasn't impressed. I thought it would be a cool show with all the explosions and stuff, but I ironically found it rather annoying and way over-hyped.

I would have loved to have seen Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Parliament, or Van Morrison. I would've liked to have seen the Eagles in their prime or Supertramp or Bob Segar, or even ELO when they had that monstrous alien ship on stage.

I only do jamband shows anymore, and I've seen about everybody I want to see with the exception of MOFRO- I'd love to see them.

Not at Kemper in the late 70's. Absolte worst show I've ever seen . They had the rep of putting on @ 5 decent shows a tour(can you say DRUGS) and KC was not one of them.
Freakin' Joe Perry would play the wrong solo in damn near every song. Tyler just cussed the crowd. We were out of there by 10:30pm because the band stopped playing after 50 minutes(thankfully)
The opener was Climax Blues Band and they easily stole that show. I swore I'd never pay to see Aerosmith and I kept my promise even in their sober years.
Great albums thru the 70's, but live... :shake:

Freakin' Joe Perry would play the wrong solo in damn near every song. Tyler just cussed the crowd. We were out of there by 10:30pm because the band stopped playing after 50 minutes(thankfully)
The opener was Climax Blues Band and they easily stole that show. I swore I'd never pay to see Aerosmith and I kept my promise even in their sober years.
Great albums thru the 70's, but live... :shake:

They're pretty damn good now that they have thier minds in place. Give a shot next time the roll through. Dream On + live = bliss.

Sevendust (again) - awesome.

I'm sure everyone knows the song "Ugly" - great track - but i'm SURE there is another song out that sounds so much like this, probably a totally different band - anyone got any ideas?

Inspector, I saw two on your list in their prime and they were both brilliant. Uriah Heep on the "Wonderworld" tour July 1974 in St. Petersburg, Florida, soldout show of 8,000 with opening act Manfred Mann's Earth Band touring for Solar Fire. That was the classic Heep lineup featuring the late vocalist David Byron who died of cirrhosis of the liver in 1985, and the late bassist Gary Thain who was electrocuted on stage in 1975 which forced his departure from the band and was found dead from an OD a few months later. Byron was the ultimate frontman. The setlist was; Stealin / Suicidal Man / So Tired / Wonderworld / The Easy Road / I Won't Mind / Something Or Nothing / July Morning / Sweet Lorraine / Easy Livin / Look At Yourself / Gypsy / (encore) Rock 'n' Roll Medley.

Four years earlier I saw the Guess Who at Loyola College in Baltimore, Maryland November 1970 on the Share the Land tour. Burt Cummings doesn't have the charisma of a Byron but one of the best voices in rock. Setlist as I remember included; These Eyes / Share The Land / No Sugar Tonight / New Mother Nature / Bus Rider / American Woman / No Time / ?

I've seen a lot of bands...I was a rock n roll DJ for 10 years. I'm going to list the guys for whatever reason I never got to see:

5) Jimi Hendrix (died too early for me)
4) Buddy Holly (ditto)
3) Doors (Jim Morrison-ditto, hey, a theme is developing...)
2) Elvis Presley (my dad saw him a couple times, including his last KC tour)
1) The Beatles (I was too young when they played Municipal Stadium in KC)

Luda and Linkin Park are definately top 10 consideration.

I saw Luda before he blew up. He opened for Outkast which was the best concert I've ever been too.

Alas, my concert days are done. I've seen my fair share of them, but at this point I'm too old and intolerant of drunken f#cking imbeciles to deal with them.

That said, the bands I'd most like to see but never did are:

1. Boston (only with Brad Delp)
2. Pink Floyd (preferably with Roger Waters)
3. Journey (only with Steve Perry)
4. Queen (only with Freddie Mercury, and that ain't gonna fuggin happen since he's DEAD)
5. Queensryche (don't know who any of the band members are, but I always liked them)

And most of them are either broken up or pale shadows of their former selves anyway, so it's not like it matters.

1. Led Zepplin
2. Hendrix
3. Too Short (pulled a no show when i went to see him in Louisville)

Top 5 I have seen
1. Outkast
2. Tom petty
3. Hard Knock Life Tour (Redman&Methodman, DMX, Jay-Z)
4. Al Green
5. David Allen Coe

As you can see I'm pretty diverse in my tase in music

I guess I am lucky to have seen just about every major band since 82 when I first went to a concert. Foreigner Four was my first.

If we are talking Dream Concerts

1. Led Zep
2. Jimi
3. Doors
4. Beatles-early years in the bars
5. Elvis-before he was famous and just jammin at Sun records.

I see a lot of people listing Clapton. I saw him in the early 90s and it was pretty average. He just doesn't work for a big arena. I might have enjoyed it more in a more intimate club type setting.

Saw AC/DC 3 times, they always rock. It's the ultimate stadium music and they put on an awesome show.

Saw the Grateful Dead a bunch of times, but the best was watching the wave at Soldier Field (on field) during an uber-long solo, while I was ripped on about 3 hits of acid. Always more about the experience than the music for me.

The five I'd like to see:
Eagles
Led Zeppelin
Metallica (pre Black)
Ray Charles
Bob Marley

Saw Metalica in their first tour with Ozzy-they were positively horrible. They had the amps at ten, major feedback, couldn't understand a word they said. Their bass player was this massive pile of hair, it was a terrible performace. I am surprised they ever made it this far. Still hate them.
