I have two shows that are standouts in my memory. The first time I saw Bruce Springsteen in Houston 1975 was the single most incredible show I ever saw live. I saw him on every tour from then through the mid 80s and that show was the tops. I believe 1978 was the last of my favorite Springsteen shows. I had many friends who got to see him in 1974 at Liberty Hall in Houston, and they all claimed that show was even better. I will never know, but 1975 was the best for me. The other show was my first concert I ever got to see of well known acts at the Melbourne Auditorium in either 1965 or '66, I cannot remember for sure, but probably '66. It was a surf/rock and roll/car show with bands playing 20-30 minute sets all day. All the popular surf bands were on the bill, but the standout that blew my young mind was Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels. He had so much energy and stage presence that he stole the show in my opinion. He was like a white James Brown with his incredible movements and total immersion into his performance. Springsteen was the only other performer I ever saw that put that much energy into their performance.
