A recent thread asked about bands you regretted not being able to see. Many of the usual classic suspects showed up- Hendrix, the Who, SRV, etc. But what about bands you did see? Of course, you can't name all the bands you've ever seen here, and most people would say they're glad they saw all the bands they've ever seen. But what about the ones that stick out in your mind? I never got to see many classic bands, but here are mine in no particular order: Santana- fellow Latino whose been playing around since before I got here The Black Crowes- a free concert in Piedmont Park for the "Hemp" Festival w/ 80,000 other like minded folks (and only 3 arrests that day) Social Distortion- Playing punk/rockabilly before it was cool again when everyone else was still in makeup, hairspray, and spandex. The Replacements- The band of the 80's... And Paul W. jumped into the crowd to thromp a frat boy who threw beer at him. REM- for a $5 cover just before the 'Losing My Religion' tour. Sonic Youth- Outside venue. Blew my mind; I never knew guitars could make those kinds of noises. Willie Nelson- Front and center with the wife for Valentines day. Taj Mahal- Fred Sanford raunchy 70's electric soul/blues. Buy You a Chevrolet.. Son Volt- Right up there with Neil Young as one of my all-time favorites. Bob Dylan- Wasn't the greatest show but I did get to see the man. The Grateful Dead- Glad to have seen one of the bands that started it all when Jerry was still around. I'm sure some guys around here actually got a chance to see (or play with) some real classics. BTW, if anyone wants to dis any of the bands I listed, feel free; it won't bother me a bit and I promise not to whine or start a new thread complaining about it.
