    ok, post 'em ... Epic Concerts You've Been To

    So, I can't even recall all the shows but here are some that I do remember being at.
    This may date me, as if I care but some that I saw (mostly at MSG) were:

    Bad Company
    Pink Floyd (several tours)
    Led Zep
    Aerosmith
    Tull
    Queen
    Boston
    Fleetwood Mac
    Blue Oyster Cult

    Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes (London, England)
    Springsteen
    Ray Charles (in Stamford, CT)

    Allman Brothers in the mid 70's (can't recall where)
    Santana (ditto)
    ELO (ditto)
    Sly & The Family Stone (somewhere in NYC)
    Steve Miller Band
    Elvis Costello (somewhere in NYC)
    Al Green

    First go 'round I forgot, but these too:
    Rare Earth (at a dive bar in Lauderdale)
    CDB aka Charlie Daniels Band (thx to KokiB for jogging my memory on that one)
    KC & The Sunshine Band (when they were hot, and dang nobody stopped dancing)
    The Traamps (in OCMD the summer I waited tables at The Embers)
    Donna Summer
    Sinatra (NYC)
    Miles Davis
    War

    Loudest: Led Zep holy crap my ears took a beating, Bonham's 45 minute drum solo wtf
    Funkiest: Sly & The Family had everyone on their feet the whole show
    Most Danceable: Sly
    Lamest: Blue Oyster Cult they should have just let everyone in with bongs to hit it and then sit around & nod off
    Nuttiest: Southside Johnny came out drunk, was so hammered he couldn't sing even one song & after missing several lead-ins he then started staggering around the stage, heaving amps at his own bandmates until security came out & literally dragged the star of the show offstage; that was the end of the show without even one song being played by the headliner & no refunds were given; audience responded with a massive cascade of debris aimed at the stage; there were many subsequent brawls in the venue & on the streets outside.

    And of 'em all, Brutha Ray was far & away the most incredible musical performance.

    Kick myself for missing:
    Bob Marley
    and too many other greats.

    What's your list?

    Good to Epic Ones:

    Jane's Addiction
    The Who (Who are You Tour)
    Frank Zappa (his band was great, his guitar playing amazing but Frank was a condescending asshole)
    Buzzcocks (amazing - at the old 9:30 club on F st.)
    Dinosaur, Jr.
    Stranglers
    Meat Puppets (Cant believe they're gonna play Dogfish Head next month - expecting a letdown)
    Pretenders
    Pavement
    Ramones
    Henry Rollins Band

    Forgetting many good ones and remembering many forgettable ones (ZZ Top, Rush, the Who in the 1980s)
