It's easy ..............


Just drop the name of a good concert billing you saw back in your day........you can put the venue and date if you want....I can't remember the dates to well.


This was probably around 1976

The Omni, Atlanta Ga.

Deep Purple - with Tommy Bolin, Glenn Hughes, Jon Lord, Ian Pace and David Coverdale.
also
Nazareth - "Of course they rocked"
Also
Rory Gallgher

I cherish seeing Rory Gallagher that night, just a good ole dude in his flannel shirt playing the hell out of that guitar.

Post a good billing you remember

Grateful Dead, Northwestern University, Evanston Il., 11-1-73. First time I saw 'em-had to choose between seeing them and the ABB-the Brothers were playing in Chicago at the Internatonal Amphiteater that night. Even though I was much bigger ABB fan I chose the Dead show because it was only 15 minutes from my house, and being all of 16, it made more sense-except my buddy (who had the atttention span of a 2 year old) drove and wanted to leave at intermission because "there aren't any chicks here." What? You're a 16 year old at a Dead show with college kids-what kind of chicks were you expecting to pick up?

Great show, what I saw....

I saw The Romantics open for The Tubes at Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Can't remember the year. After the show that night, my friend and I went to see John Lee Hooker at a club. The Romantics came there to see JLH as well.

In 1976 there was a mining disaster in Scotia, Ky.

On the 4th of july weekend benefit concerts were held at the University of Kentucky.
the first night had the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Earl Scruggs Review, Emmylou Harris and a couple others. The next night the scheduleed acts were Roger McGuinn, The Band and Ray Charles. Roger McGuinn opened followed by the Band.When it came time for Ray Charles to play, a woman came out on stage and announced that Ray Charles had cancelled. When the crowd started booing she responded with this classic line. " You've seen Roger McGuinn and the Band what else do you want. Go home."

Fox Theatre, Atlanta Ga.

Journey - This is a little before they got all mushy and stuff and I was not to excited about seeing them, but they were damn good.

also

Whitesnake - Before Coverdale went all HAIR BAND...with Ian Pace and John Lord..Micky Moody and Bernie Marsden. Awesome !

also

Thin Lizzy - Great !

After the show we went across the street and saw Ian Hunter at the Agora. While we was watching at the very back of the room...my girlfriend tugged at my shirt and said" look behind you"....it was Phil Lynott the singer from Thin Lizzy...he was a big tall dude with a green trench coat on...he spoke to us and bought us a beer...then he went about his way.

Thats one of my fave memories...he had a big smile ...I sure miss him.

International Ampitheater, Chicago, sometime during the 80's, probably on some color of microdot or other.

Axe*
Iron Maiden
Judas Priest

Went with about 8 other teens, the oldest of whom lived his whole life in Canaryville (the neighborhood of the Ampitheatre). He takes us around the back, and there's this security guard sitting on a folding chair outside of a small door. Joey says, "What's up, Uncle Mike?" Uncle Mike says, "What's up?" And we all walk in.

Anybody got an Uncle Mike at the Beacon?


*One-hit wonders, more or less, "knock-down, drag-out, rock and roll party in the streets." The other two rocked.

Then there was the Great American Music Festival at the NY State Fair.

First time they did a rock festival.

Happened the day after the Fair ended.

John Scher promoted it.

Acts, in order:

Stanky Brown (they sucked)

John Sebastian (solo harmonica during rain delay)

America

New Riders of the Purple Sage

Jefferson Starship (Red Octopus just released)

Doobie Brothers (Vices tour, no Mike McD. Tom Jonhston still on guitar)

Beach Boys (Worst act of the day besides Stinky.)

We were burning outhouses to keep warm, and the Beach Boys were onstage wearing fur coats singing "Let's go surfing now".

Let's not.

Doobies had fireworks all around the drum risers and the front of the stage.

During the pause in the middle of China Grove, the whole stage exploded as the guitar reprise started.

I had snuck out from the house and been gone for two days for this show.

Got grounded for 4 months, no concerts, but it was worth it.

Hawthorne Race Track, Cicero, Ill, summer, 1977-that's all I can remember about the date...

Gary Wight (Dream Weaver), pleasant diverson, but not the right opener for 70,000+ on a 95 degree day..

LYNYRD SKYNYRD-blew every act off the stage that day-Frampton followed (Frampton Comes Alive came out the year before and was still being played to death); I felt sorry for him following LS; and Yes was the headliner, but they were such a letdown after LS we left early, one of the only times I've ever done that in my life.

This concert took a court order to happen-was supposed to be somewhere else but ultimately took place at a racetrack. All I can remember was when Skynyrd cranked it up, EVERYBODY turned toward the stage and stopped talking. Many (including myself) began walking towards the stage (couldn't even see it from where I was) like Muslims making a pilgrimage towards mecca.

One of the most electrifying shows I've ever seen-well, heard, really...all my buddies who had given me sh*t for buying their debut record the day it came out 4 years before sat there with their mouths open and later apologized for their ignorance.

They were the best band of the mid '70s, for sure, IMHO.

& not sure of the year ( early '70's )...Bonnie Raitt / Little Feat / Jackson Brown...Memphis,Tn. ( The North Hall)

& again early '70's .....Bloodrock / Steppenwolf / Grand Funk Railroad...Memphis,Tn. (Mid-South Col.)

I'm 44, but, this past December I saw the Brian Setzer Orchestra Christmas Extravaganza show at the Ryman in Nashville...The best friggin' show I've ever seen....Now, for a real "back in the day"...I saw 3 shows in 1983 that blew me away
1. R.E.M. at the I&I club in Athens, GA
2. The Gregg Allman Band (forgot the name of the venue) in Athens, GA...never been to a show where the house lights came on and because no one would shut up or leave, they brought the lights down again and the band came out and played another encore.
3. Jason & The Scorchers at The Steamboat in Austin...my band was the opening act...getting one's set smoked never felt so good. I still don't know how Jason Ringenberg didn't fall over the stack of mains he was singing off of during "It's all over now". That was the night Warner Hodges and I became good friends - what a guitar player! Joe Ely and John McFee (The Doobie Brothers) showed up for the encore and jammed with Jason and fellas (who were also kind enough to ask me to sit in too!)

Hey! Whaddyaknow...I just made Peach Master! Horray for me!

Great show.
