Great Show!

on Foghat / Wet Willie , 1977 Nov 13

I won tickets on Zeta for this one, I was a young kid and it was my first show I went to by myself, Foghat was killer that day.

Pro Aerosmith, Pro Slash, Anti Axl

on Aerosmith, 1988 Sep 3

Yeah, I was at this concert. A few fights broke out, people were stomping the floors as hard as they could for an encore...Slash dropping his guitar pick at the beginning of "Sweet Child O' Mine" in which he restarted the song from the top, and the as usual obnoxious whats-his-name bitching about St. Louis cops. Who knew that his overblown ego would be an omen of what was to come at the then-called Riverport Amphitheater show on July 2, 1991? I thought Aerosmith was awesome but even better when they came back in 990.

1st major rock concert

on The Jimi Hendrix Experience, 1968 Aug 1

My first (of many, many) rock concerts. Last summer of high school (CHS) before leaving for college. Totally blew me away & I have still not recovered (& pray I never will)! Concert was just a few months after Axis: Bold As Love came out-still my favorite Hendrix album (love 'em all- incl. some of the bootlegs).
Soft Machine was really great, too...my intro to Progressive Rock -keys, bass/guitar, drums (pre ELP)-"Hope For Happiness", "Lullaby Letter", "Why Are We Sleeping?"

I agree with thaisteve...

on Be Bop Deluxe, 1977 Oct 6

I loved (and still do love) their albums, but this one time I saw them live concert was such a disappointment. :(

Their "Live in the Air Age" album had a well adjusted tone; this concert was horrid. Voices were lost in the bass and the space.

For me, their mix was horrid for a live concert. This was back when I could actually hear (doesn't getting old suck in some ways? :D ), and the bass completely overpowered the rest of the music. It was hard to actually hear their lyrics and the high end was completely lost. :(

And, actually, tjohnusa, I think it was Be Bop Deluxe who was booed off the stage. :(

Not Mr. Clapton's Best Show

on Eric Clapton, 1979 Jun 1

He had Muddy Waters opening for him - a guy who'd been making his living playing the blues since WAY before Eric was born.

Honestly, Eric Clapton should have been opening for Muddy Waters. :)
