    No new names to add but I'm reminded of some I'd forgotten were gone. This one makes me feel old and sad...

    For those of us lucky enough to have been around, the years from '69 to '85 or so, were a non-stop parade of great concerts. If we even suspected how special those years would turn out to be, maybe we would have payed closer attention. Maybe kept a scrapbook or something. It's embarrassing to admit not being able to remember them all. We thought it would never end. I miss them all. I'll add Terry Kath to the list.

    I guess that's why this is a thing:

    Not the longest list, but I've had the pleasure of seeing the following before they left us:

    Tom Petty
    Walter Becker
    Levon Helm
    Gregg Allman
    EVH
    Scott Weiland
    Adam Yauch (MCA)
    Billy Preston

    I'll forever regret passing on the chance to see the Dead at Soldier in '95 (I was just a teenager and didn't know better). Jerry Garcia is one of my favorites and I never got to see him. Even though he was in a really bad way that summer, I would have loved to have experienced a true Grateful Dead show.

    Joe Cocker. Hands down the most powerful performance I have ever seen. Tears streaming down my face by the end after 2 hours straight. You dont realize how many hits he had.
