@schmee my top 2 are Petty and the Heartbreakers, and SRV.Tom Petty.
I think I did see the Eagles early on in their career, but would have liked to see them after some of their better albums.
I saw Hendrix 3 times! It was mostly loud and showy. Definitely not as good as the albums, but it was impactful like the start of Foxy Lady etc!
Jim Croce I knew growing up, but the other two yeah, about the same time as Prine. In fact, Blaze Foley – amazing songwriting! – from Prine:John Prine I only discovered WHEN he died
Don't you just hate it when that happens!?
And he in turn led me on to discover even more dead guys: Blaze Foley, Townes Van Zandt, Jim Croce - Music I didn't think I much liked before; Prine was my gateway drug!
Larry Norman when he was performing in Drachten (the Netherlands)
he got his heart attack after that ore at the performance.

Another thread got me thinking about musicians (I include singers) I wish I had seen but never did - either my mistake or they lived before my time. Wondering Who others missed out on. What one artist would you want to have seen most of all?
For me, at least today, it’s Charlie Parker.
