I've been to the LA Greek many times, never been to the Berkeley one. I did see Radiohead at the LA Greek shortly after Hail To The Thief was released. Man that was a good album.

I've already been to the Greek once this year, and I might be going back at least 4 times (Raconteurs, King Gizzard, King Crimson, and Bastille). They have a pretty awesome schedule this year.

10. Agree, aside from the Phil Collins.

I absolutely detest his music, sorry to say.

When he only drums and produces, I do like his work, though.
The work he did with Howard Jones was good, as well as the one-hit-wonder Frida: I Know There's Something Going On


But I would cheerfully beat him bloody for "Susussdio" and any number of his other hits.

16. Phil Collins was great on his first few albums as singer of Genesis ...

Duke, Abacab, Genesis in particular. Also 3 Sides Live was an awesome live set.

I saw 'em on Genesis (Mama) Tour in 1983 I think it was, Oakland Arena. Great show.

Also saw him solo on the tour for the album w/Sussudio. It was a decent show ... Follow You Follow Me was the highlight for me. He didn't play much Genesis.

9. Biggest regret: Jimmy Buffett

Didn't like his stuff going in, liked it even less after he played it. Some girl sitting behind me sang EVERY LAST WORD OF EVERY SONG he played. Thankfully, he sort of cheated the audience by performing for only about 50 minutes.

Coldplay played for almost 3 hours. Talk about getting your money's worth!

15. The Cure played for almost 3 hours on the Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me tour!

That was pretty sweet! Even though it was outdoors, in July, in Phoenix!!!!

The worst band I ever saw was Nine Inch Nails opening for Jesus and Mary Chain.
Totally boring, no stage presence whatsoever, and I hated their music. (Still do).

Worst experience was being barfed on by the girl behind me just before Depeche Mode took the stage!
Or the guy behind me that peed on me during a festival-style concert between acts. I can't remember between which acts that happened, though.

19. I saw Kiss Me x 3 tour too, indoors though, summer of 1987 I believe it was ...

They rocked A Forest so FCUKING HARD they blew a speaker somewhere that was totally buzzing the last minute or so ... it added to the effect.

Saw them every tour from HOTD to Wish, 2x on Disintegration.

Did you watch the 30th anniversary show in Sydney last month? It's on YT, and it's AWESOME. Esp. if you're familiar w/the B-Sides from that era like I am, they played a bunch of em before starting the album proper.

Funnily enough, I blew one of my PC speakers watching it lol ...

I saw NiN on Downward Spiral tour, and they ROCKED ASS ...

Also saw Depeche in 1997, pretty good show, but not a favorite live act of mine. Too much keyboards. I love Martin Gore though.

21. Yes, summer of 87

I also saw them on every tour you did, except HOTD (I don't think they came to PHX for that one).

I have not seen the 30th anniv. yet. I think it's coming to theatres as a special screening and me & my gang were talking about going to see it then.

During the Disintegration tour, (again outdoors, in summer, in PHX) one of the speakers caught fire during "Hot Hot Hot"!!!!

Robert Smith did a double take when he saw it being lowered toward the stage, still burning!! (It was quickly extinguished once within reach).

My second NiN experience was no better than the first. They played one song, then stomped off stage during Lolapolooza. (Again, in summer, outdoors, in Phx. I guess Trent doesn't have the endurance of Robert Smith!)

Never could stomach NiN after that.

38. Lemme know when it's showing and where, ol Mr. L might pop down ...

Dunno if you've heard the b-sides from Lullaby, Lovesong, and Fascination, but they play like 4 of 'em ... Babble in particular absolutely kicks ass in that show. Refreshing your memory (or checking 'em out for the first time) might enhance your enjoyment of the video.

I love the show overall but on a couple songs, Reeves Gabrel's guitar tone is 'off', too distorted, esp. on Homesick. That main guitar figure is supposed to be a relatively clean (but slightly flanged) sound, but Reeves has full-on distortion and it doesn't cut through and drive the song like it should, i.e. how it is on the CD (you can tell how much of a Cure nerd I am) ... also ... Jason Cooper, while he's gotten better ... is still no Boris. But he does a very passable job.

I've not heard Robert sound as good in a WHILE, and I've watched lots of live Cure vids over the years on tours I didn't actually see. And Simon is his usual badass self.

I can see how you'd be turned off to NiN. I saw 'em indoors at the Warfield in SF, about a 3k person venue iirc. It was phenomenal.

45. NP. Did you watch their R&R Hall of Fame induction show? Also on YT, also killer ...

The fact that they shocked me by coming out and OPEN it with a freaking incendiary version of Shake Dog Shake is the highlight for me (The Top is way underappreciated, IMHO), but all 4 songs are done up pretty great. And Trent Reznor's intro (OOPS!) of the band is pretty awesome and worth hearing.

62. That was great :)

Yeah, I love the mix of their styles on The Top ... some classic gloom like Shake Dog Shake, The Wailing Wall, Empty World, and The Top ... with some of Bob's best weirdo pop songs like Birdmad Girl, bananafishbones, Dressing Up, and of course The Caterpillar ... it's kinda like Kiss Me x 3 ... but two albums earlier, shorter, and definitely weirder.

Edit: meant to say, if you have the B-Sides collection (the Dots one), they play all 4 Disintegration b-sides on that collection ... Fear of Ghosts, 2 Late, Babble, and Out of Mind ... in the Sydney show. And a couple unreleased instrumentals, both of which are REALLY good ... One of the 2, called No Heart ... sounds like it could've been the last 4 instrumental minutes of an extended 'One More Time' from KMKMKM, where they kick the song up a notch for the latter 1/2.

26. Aerosmith & Blink 182 at a free show in Phoenix ... about 2 years ago now I think ...

Last edited Wed Jul 3, 2019, 12:53 PM - Edit history (1)

We were in the VERY last group they let in, showed up literally at the last possible minute before they put up rope behind us and said 'that's it, we're at capacity!'.

Good show, esp. for free.

Last paid show was Jason Isbell at Crescent Ballroom in 2012 ... or maybe it was Rush at the arena where the Suns play ... forget what year that was, but was around that time.

Best Show I cannot possibly name, I've been to way too many.

Jason Isbell was way up there cause I was 5 feet from him the whole time, for a $22 ticket. Now he's playing 10K-size arenas.

The Cure Disintegration shows were amazing, as were the 4 U2 Joshua Tree shows I went to in 1987.

Pink Floyd in 1986, DSoT tour, I was so freaking excited for that, never thought they'd tour again after Roger left in 1982, and it didn't disappoint. Roger Waters in 2007 doing Dark Side was amazing.

Page/Plant in 1997 (the Clarksdale tour) was outstanding.

INXS on the Kick tour were totally on fire.

Aerosmith on the Pump tour was killer (a little-known GnR opened for 'em).

Then there's the many Day on the Green's I went to in the 80's and 90's ... including 1991 one with Metallica, Queensr˙che, Faith No More and Soundgarden ...

On Edit: Almost forgot ... Smashing Pumpkins, Siamese Dream Tour, Warfield, SF, 1992. On my birthday, and the show was FREAKING KILLER.

Biggest regrets ... not seeing REM back in the IRS days (did see 'em on Monster tour, but was THIS close to going to the Lifes Rich Pageant show ... but didn't), and not seeing Peter Gabriel back when all his albums were called 'Peter Gabriel'. You could tell from his 'Plays Live' album (plus everyone I knew who'd seen him) that he was AMAZING live in the 80's.

33. Roger McGuinn/Chris Hillman with Marty Stuart, last December

They were doing a 50th anniversary of the Byrds' Sweethearts of the Rodeo album tour.

Strathmore Music Hall in N. Bethesda, MD.

As a major Byrds fan since 1965 I had seen Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman each perform individually at other venues in the DC area. To see them perform together, doing some of my favorite Byrds songs, was just magical.

As for the best show I've seen, hmmm... I've seen so many it's hard to pick one! The above would rank near the top, though.

This is the first time in a long time I don't have any shows on the horizon.

44. The Planets is one of my favorite pieces of music.

I can't listen to "Adagio for Strings" anymore, after going to hear in concert shortly after my son died.
If I hear it, it takes me immediately back to that night, and the emotions are just as raw.
It is a beautiful piece of music, though.

72. I certainly understand about the Barber...



It was originally the 2nd movement of the String Quartet in B minor, Op. 11. But he immediately arranged it for string orchestra.

I can't listen to it just because I have heard it so many times I don;t want to hear it any more..

Now THAT is interesting --- how our experiences can color something outside ourselves, isn't it.
Our entire lives are like that......

It was fantastic. I have to go quite a few vack to the last concert before that.
Back around 1980 there were these Summerfest concerts at the Yale bowl in CT. They had them (one bug concert each two consecutive years. The bands included Heart, the little River band, Eddie Money, Thd Beach boys. They were bith amazing . If i recall the second year has the Cars, and The Eagles with a fairly recent addition of Joe Walsh.

42. ABBA cover group at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens

during the Concerts in the Garden summer season. Joint project with the FW Symphony.

Great mix of traditional symphony stuff, themed concerts, special guest acts, a big pre 4th featuring various well loved classical music ending with 1812 Overture where the cannons are supplied by fireworks, and the season ending Family 4th concert with all the usual music, closing with Stars & Stripes Forever - with fireworks at the big ending. (fireworks every concert, with great choreography of the final music. Pink Martini closed with "Brazil" & fireworks.

46. This makes me realise how long it's been

Last: 2012, The Pogues at the Olympia, Paris

Best: Tough call, it's either....

1997: Big Day Out in Adelaide which was one of Soundgardens last sets and when the Prodigy were blowing up big time. Also my first show I was allowed to go to on my own and miss a day of school for. Got massively sun burnt too.

2008 Muse, Marlay Park, Dublin primarily because we won a comp to get backstage tickets and meet the band, we also got to stand on side of stage as they walked out and for the first couple of songs. Free booze too.

2009 Flaming Lips, The AB in Brussels, great show all round and come out of it with hurting face muscles from smiling too much.

Next: TBA It's been 7 years since a show and nothing is really planned howeve we just found out kids under 12 get in to Glastonbury for free soo going to register for next year and see if we can snag some tickets before they get too old.

47. Paul McCartney

this past Saturday, June 29. Awesome concert. Probably the best I've seen. He was very funny, down-to-earth and still a kick-ass musician at his tender age of 76 years.

And the music is just classic. No need for dancers or extreme special effects or sexy costumes. Just Paul and his talented band of musicians and songs we all know the words to.

Next concert... who knows. I'd love to see Lady Gaga again but the ticket prices are astronomical.

Great concerts... U2, Nine Inch Nails, Bon Jovi, Duran Duran (yes, they're great in concert)

Next: Not sure, would have to be pretty special to get out in a crowd
Best: George Harrison/Ravi Shankar Dark Horse Tour, Tulsa 1974. Have seen critics pan this tour, but the energy of everyone on stage was electric.

50. Last about a month ago

Massacre and Druid Lord at Will's Pub in Orlando

Next up is Iron Maiden in South Florida. Taking my granddaughter and her boyfriend. (we went to Slayer/Anthrax/Testament/Behemoth last summer)

Best is way too hard to tell as there have been many times I've left a show feeling that was the best damn thing I ever seen. But probably one of the many Rush shows or Robert Plant/Plant & Page/John Paul Jones shows or maybe it was Demilich with Blood Incantation and Artificial Brain opening up. Or Ozzy without Iommi or Iommi without Ozzy...

Or Bolt Thrower twice at the same Maryland Death Fest (Pestilence had visa issues and got sent home from the airport the day before the fest started so Bolt Thrower filled in their slot. And then the next year at the next MDF, Pestilence had their visa issues fixed and were able to play so I got to see them anyway.)

It's the only really large arena show I've been to. They didn't disappoint. Even though we were in the nosebleeds, we thought they rocked!

The Specials in 2016 were probably my fave.

I've seen Super Furry Animals three times. All great concerts. Even got to go to the green room once to chat in Welsh with Gruff Rhys!

66. Last concert was Trombone Shorty with the Seratones opening. It was a great show.

Next show I have tickets for is the Wood Brothers, but I may go see Robert Randolph tonight.

Best show is such a hard call. Allman Brothers reunion show in 1986 was amazing, Keith Richards playing with JD and the Jammers at Benny's in New Orleans (total dive bar) was a treat, Revivalists in a small club right before they broke out big was amazing, but I think Springsteen at Jazzfest the year after Katrina may be the winner for me.

Last concert - Tommy Emmanuel Did a 'meet and greet' beforehand.
Next - ???
Best - An amazing evening with The Coasters, Chuck Berry, The Shirelles, Bobby Rydell, Gary U.S. Bonds, Bo Diddley, and Rick Nelson (Yep - this was the infamous October 15, 1971 'Garden Party' 1950's Rock and Roll Revival concert at Madison Square Garden where Nelson got booed off the stage when he started playing his new stuff instead of the oldies that everyone was there to hear.)

Runners up - Arlo Guthrie (20th Anniversary of Alice's Restaurant at Carnegie Hall); multiple Peter Shickele concerts of the music of P.D.Q. Bach; Boney-M in Frankfurt, Germany.

Tower of Power (Fox Oakland this coming August)

Tower of Power

(The last is a joke, although I do love their concerts. The best was many years ago, maybe 25 or more. The Vienna Philharmonic with Leonard Bernstein conducting. They did a Beethoven 3rd symphony that took the roof off Davies Hall.)

If you want to dance, you really need Tower of Power.

at the Giothic Theater in Denver. His name was in two colors on the marquee. How sad is that. I'd seen him years earlier with James Dewar and Bill Lordan as bandmates.

Next... No idea, though I'd love to see the Drive-by Truckers.

Best... Odetta, Boulder CO, 1968. I was nine. On her way to the stage she stopped to smile at me and put her hand on my head. I always loved her.

106. Last concert was either Yes

or Jethro Tull, both 50th anniversaries and both good concerts. Yes especially was good, Tull was outside and it was hot and the sound is always not quite as good as a nice indoor setting.

Next concert Weird Al next month I think.

Best was probably Paul Simon. Saw him 3 times but I think I liked it best when we flew to St. Louis and saw him with Dylan. Dylan was not so great that night sadly but this was the Rhythm of the Saints tour for Simon and you just cannot beat that music.

Honorable mention Elton John with Leon Russel. (so many over all these years it is hard to pick them out) CSN, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell (with Jaco) etc. Too old to remember them all.
