HORDE Fest '96

on Blues Traveler\Lenny Kravitz\Rusted Root, 1996 Aug 30

I have many stories from this day but one of the coolest things I ever saw happened at this festival. Lenny Kravitz was rockin' with his band when someone decided to turn the volume down because the concert was going late and there are neighborhoods nearby. This pissed off Lenny and while jamming a killer solo he walked off the stage and down the center aisle to the sound board at the back of the seats and turned it back up! My drug induced mind was blown

rolling stoned memories

on Rolling Stones, The, 1975 Jun 15

Does anyone have photos of this 1975 Rolling Stones concert at Rich Stadium? I remember having a ton of fun and jumping up and down on my seat. But also there were dozens of people passed on out the small lawn areas beside pedestrian ramps in the stadium. There were people passed out in the bathrooms. I'd especially like to see photos of the crowd, wouldn't you?, to see what we all looked like then.

Dr. Feelgood at AKKURAT in Stockholm

on Dr: Feelgood, 2014 Aug 31

I´ve been to many concerts in the last few years, and I have to say this one beats them all. 100-150 persons in a small pub/restaurant and everyone there out of interest. My first time listening live, but surely not the last. The energy and great music can´t be described in words. You´ve had to have been there. IT WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!

What A Night -- That Almost Ended Too Soon

on The Allman Brothers Band, 1971 Jun 16

This was the only time I saw the original lineup with Duane. The concert was MC'd by a local black DJ whose on-air moniker was Father Tree. He used to sign off with "Father Tree is in the valley and smokin'." Boutwell was packed and the audience was having a great time -- no surprise there! Duane and Gregg were side-by-side onstage, passing a joint back and forth as the crowd became entranced while the brothers weaved their magic. I and my party were on the right upper tier about halfway back in the auditorium, just above the main floor. I remember one hippie kept getting up from his right orchestra aisle seat and just standing in place, stomping his foot and clapping his hands in time. The cops would periodically come by and tell him to sit down; he would comply for a few minutes, then get back up again and stomp in time to the music onstage. A REAL threat to public safety and national security (if you know what I mean).

Finally the a*hole cops had enough, so they grabbed and frog-marched this hippie -- whose only crime was enjoying himself -- out the back of the auditorium, as his date followed tearfully and the crowd started yelling loudly at the pigs' overzealous overreaction.

As usual, the cops then only made matters worse as two of them went to the far ends of the stage and PULLED THE CURTAINS CLOSED on the band right in the middle of a song! The mood grew ugly and noisy at the rank stupidity of the local constabulary; Duane was so furious you could see him gesticulating madly at one of the cops and cussing a blue streak! The cops continued to shut down the show to a unison of "boos" and profanity from the audience as Duane stormed off in a blind fury with the rest of the group.

Sadly, it appeared the concert was over, until some time later when Father Tree reappeared onstage and told the crowd that an agreement had been reached between city officials and the band to allow them to play "just one more song" and then show over.

The curtain once again rose as the band launched into "Whipping Post", which they continued playing for at least 40 minutes! I'm sure the cops were scratching their heads wondering if the band was "in compliance" and still playing just the "one song" per agreement.

A night to remember with the greatest jam band of all, the crown princes of Southern rock.

Deep Purple at the Seminole Hard Rock Live Arena on 8/31/2014.

on Deep Purple, 2014 Aug 31

I went to this concert with my friend Dan O. We were both looking forward to seeing a band that is a legend in hard rock history.... Deep Purple. The band Deep Purple this night was Ian Gillan (lead vocals), Steve Morse (guitar), Roger Glover (bass), Don Airey (keyboards), & Ian Paice (drums). Classic Deep Purple guitarist Richie Blackmore unfortunately has not been with the band for a long time, and is with his wife in the band "Blackmore's Night" (a renaissance, celtic , neomedieval rock music band). Deep Purple classic keyboard player Jon Lord unfortunately passed away in 2012.
Soon before the concert started I dropped my camera to get a quick drink of water, and an honest concert goer a row behind me saw me drop it, and handed my camera back to me. It's nice to know there are some honest people out there.
About 10 minutes before the Deep Purple concert started on this night "That Metal Show" host Eddie Trunk walked on stage, and told the crowd how important Deep Purple is to rock n roll history... and then introduced classic drummer from the band "Iron Maiden" Nicko McBrain on stage to help introduce Deep Purple to the South Florida crowd. Nicko McBrain is currently, and has been a Florida resident for a long time even though he is British by ancestry. Deep Purple started this concert with the song "Highway Star". This song sounded really good. For some reason... classic images of Deep Purple pop in my mind when I hear this, and other Purple songs they would do tonight with Ian Gillan with his real long hair, Richie on guitar, Jon Lord on keyboards, Ian Paice on drums, and Roger Glover on bass from the early 1970s. My favorite songs during this concert was their songs "Strange Kind Of Woman", and the song "Vincent Price" also had some really cool eerie sounds to it, cool lyrics, and some classic Ian screams... great new song off the new album, great to see them do this song live. The solos from: Don Airey keyboards, Steve Morse guitar, and Ian Paice drums stood out the most in this show. I was partying all throughout the concert. There was also a shorter bass solo from Roger Glover. "Black Night" was also another favorite song of mine this night. All their songs were very good this night... Deep Purple was very good, and for a while at the beginning my ears hurt a little from the good music. That normally does not happen. I hope someday Richie Blackmore rejoins his classic bandmates Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, and Ian Paice in Deep Purple in the future... but Steve Morse does an excellent job... but there is only one Richie Blackmore. He has his distinct whining rock bluesy guitar sound that is his signature sound in the band. Deep Purple was great this night... I do miss that very long hair Ian Gillan used to have. Again ... great long solos from Ian Paice drums, Don Airey keyboards, and Steve Morse guitar during this concert. Ian Gillan vocals also sounded great for a hard rock singer that is 69 yrs old now, and has to hit some very hard vocal notes in several of these songs. Roger Glover can also hit all those bass notes great still. Ian Paice on the drums .... just a legend classic rock drummer that still has it! There was about 6 to 10 more songs at least I wish Deep Purple would have done this night. All the pictures I uploaded for this concert to this website are in the order of time that they happened during the show, and before. So great to see Deep Purple ....such a legendary hard rock band !

Best Aerosmith Show

on black&blue/ aerosmith, 1985 Jan 9

January 9th 1985. This was a great show that was added at the last second. Black and Blue was supposed to open, but backed out, and some band called "Shuttup and drive" sat in. Anyway, Aerosmith opened with Rats in the Cellar." It was great because Steven came out with mixed drink in his hand. They also played "Back in the Saddle." unlike the show on the 11th where they played "Adam's Apple" instead. I really wished they would have played my favorite song "Sick as a Dog," but it didn't happen. This was one of the last shows Aerosmith ever did featuring all there classics from the 71-83 years. I'm honored to have been there and to remember it to this day. It's funny because you go onto concert setlist and they don't even list this show. Oh well, I was there and it was awesome.

An incredible show!

on Joe Bonamassa, 2009 Nov 6

My first time seeing Joe Bonamassa and he did not disappoint. Very cool when he broke into Zep's "Dazed and Confused" in the middle of covering ZZ Top's "Just Got Paid". He even played a theremin ala Jimmy Page. If you've never seen Joe Bonamassa you should check him out as he is one of the best modern day guitarist.

Very cool show

on The Australian Pink Floyd Show, 2006 Nov 14

This was a great show as the musicians were all really good as was the sound and laser light show. It was cool to hear songs off of "Animals", my fave PF album, since PF wouldn't play them after Roger Waters left the band.

on Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band, 2006 Jul 7

The lineup included Billy Squier, Richard Marx, Edgar Winter, Rod Argent, Sheila E., Hamish Stuart. Great to see Edgar Winter play "Frankenstein" live as well as Rod Argent playing "She's Not There" and "Hold Your Head Up".

It was Ringo's 66th birthday and his wife, actress Barbara Bach, came out with a birthday cake and we all sang "Happy Birthday" to Ringo.
