    Next time you're feeling lazy about seeing your current faves, and think you'll catch them next time around, get off your butt and see 'em...before it's too late.
    I am VERY glad I got to see Ronnie Dawson once.

    had a chance to see Chet Atkins live back in the 70's; didn't go, of course, it's too late now...
    turned down tickets from a friend to go see the Twangbangers several years ago; didn't know who they were..!!?

    like ya said, most of the players i appreciate and "learned" from are long gone...chet atkins, merle travis, joe maphis, jimmy bryant, roy nickols, luther perkins, phil baugh, jerry reed...not at all sayin' there ain't some good players around now (brent mason, albert lee, vince gill, our own sol philcox and big john stannard, andy reiss), i just "miss" the old-timers...

    The big band era Benny Goodman Art Tatum all those battles of the bands they had.

    Monterey Pop all 3 days that was the miost perfect concert ever.

    Bob Wills Hank Williams the first time he played at the Grand Old Opry and got so many standing ovations and encores he played all his songs and played them again the crowd just wouldnt let him leave the stage.

    As far as sorta newer stuff Jimi and SRV. I had tickets to see SRV but sadly he died 2 weeks before.

    They're all still living, but I'd love to see XTC circa '79 to '83. Or on a completely different note, Van Halen, Boston or Rush in '78.
