  • What's your favorite concert you've attended?

    My favorite has to be U2's Zoo TV's concert of a damp Sunday evening at Busch.

    If I had to name four other favorites, I'd name the following:

    Prince

    Elton John

    Police

    Parliament-Funkadelic.....

    Oh yes, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Joe Cocker at the Fox in 1991. YThree weeks before Stevie was killed in a helicopter accident in Wisconsin.

            Plus, I saw Donovan open for Yes in 1978.

            I mean, this is DONOVAN we're talking about.

                Probably the first real show I saw; Led Zeppelin (touring for their 1st album) opening for Jeff Beck on his Truth tour in 1968 at the old Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. Beck's band featured Rod Stewart on vocals, ronnie wood on guitar, and kenny jones on drums among others.

                2) Moody Blues with Trapeze opening at the Arena in St Louis circa '71.

                3) Pink Floyd at the old Amphitheatre in Chicago '73.

                4) Dylan with the Band Amphitheatre '75

                5) The Dead at city park in Telluride '87. Largely because of the venue.

                  Lest I forget, I attended a Fleetwood Mac concert in 1977 at The Summit in Houston. My friend's uncle got us FIRST ROW tickets. Damn the music, I was entranced on Stevie Nicks and her short skirt with sheer panties.

                    That '77 Fleetwood Mac tour was excellent. That was the (thin) Stevie Nicks/ Chrisine McVie/John McVie/Mick Fleetwood/Lindsay Buckingham tour. The only Fleetwood Mac incarnation that was better than the original Peter Green led band.

                        The best one was the Allman Bros in S.F. on New Year's Eve (circa 70 or so) before Duane died.

                        Closely behind would be the Newport Jazz Fesitival in the late 60's just before I got discharged. I took 'leave' for 4 days and the highlight (other than the trumpet 'workshop' on Friday afternoon with Miles, Clark Terry and others) was the Big Band Night with Buddy Rich's new band, Bill Basie's orchestra, Woody Herman's Herd and Duke Ellington. The singers that joined them were Joe Williams, Sarah Vaughn, Ella Fitzgerald and Nancy Wilson.

                        A surprise guest star with Basie's Band was the 'Chairman of the Board' Frank Sinatra.

                        Singularly the greatest jazz night of MY life.

                          Five is nowhere near enough. Three excellent concerts from the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago off the top of my head:

                          Deep Purple '70
                          Humble Pie '70
                          Procol Harum '69

                          From the Fox Theatre in St Louis:

                          Frank Zappa '71
                          The Grateful Dead '72 (October)
