    Matt where was the Live and Bush concert in Munich?
    Near where they hold Octoberfest. It was a two day festival. There were other "big names" there like Alanis Morrisette and Bryan Adams and a few others along with a lot of bands I never heard of. It was an outdoor concert and was in a park and we were allowed to put up tents and camp out. This was in 96.

        Munich is awesome. If you can get there during Octoberfest do it. It is a blast. Just get to the beer tents when they open at 11 am. If not, you have to fight for a table. It's wild you drink from 11 to 11 and just meet people and talk and dance on the tables and eat. Then you drink more and even though you should be passed out you just keep going. An awesome experiance.

          4)Live and Bush in Munich Germany
          3)Pearl Jam
          2)Blues Traveller at the H.O.R.D.E. festival
          1)Bare Naked Ladies at Savvis a couple years ago. Best live show I've ever saw. They're not the best band but they give one hell of a live show.
          NUMBER 5) Was back home in Sweet Home St Louis that summer and our boy from University City played out of his head that night.

                About 1971, Stevie Wonder opened for The Rolling Stones at the old Kiel Auditorium. Saw Janis Joplin in San Antonio. Very few acknowlege how great Linda Ronstadt was. (she was also very hot looking during the 70's). She was at the old Arena about 79----ungodly power. Her punk phase---one of the few artists to have a number one song played in 5/4 time. (Get Closer?)

                  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.
                  Good lord, man! I hope you stopped washed your ears after that!
                  . . . and to tell you this: I work with gays, have friends who are gay, go to church with gays. Most of them are aware that I believe that homosexual behavior is sin. Some of them actually agree. Most don't. It's OK . . . because they also know or at least have been made aware of my multitude of sins: adulterous heart, lustful and covetous behavior, wicked pride, angry spirit . . . do I need to go on?

                    See...we all have our own "reasons" for a concert being the best....

                    I have two...
                    Motley Crue, Thanksgiving night. '87 (or was it '86?) Mom let me take her car, we had a good time, before and after the concert (and not like what you pervs are thinking)...

                    and MB20 uh I guess it was 3 years ago....work function...suite at Savvis...I'll just leave it at that...boss and I were hung-over until 2 the next day (well I was until 2, he was until he went home)...

                      Frank Zappa, "Joe's Garage" Tour, Kansas City Kansas, 1980 (?)
                      He played NOTHING from "Joe's Garage"...and did a seriously kick-ass version of "Whipping Post". The BEST concert I've ever seen; they played for 2 1/2 hours without a break between songs.
                      Other than that, I usually preferred the opening acts of shows (Foghat, April Wine, Jay Ferguson) to the headliners.

                        Hands down, the best concert I ever saw was the Afro-Cuban All-Stars at Powell Hall in 2001. They had the whole fucking symphony hall up and dancing in the aisles. It was one of the most surreal experiences ever!

                        Honorable mentions: Radiohead on the OK Computer tour at the Galaxy, The Flaming Lips during the headphone days (and currently, too!), the St. Louis Symphony performing Mahler's 2nd symphony (which is coming back REALLY soon!!!) and a Max Roach clinic/performance at Wash U a few years back (97?).

                          April Wine,
                          What ever happened to those guys??

                          I remember my sister listening to the song, "Just Between you and me"...

                          They were a really early 80's band...1982??

                              4. Rolling Stones..Sun Devil Stadium. Thorogood opened for them.

                              5. Leon Russell..Fulton County Stadium..Atlanta.

                              Due to conditions beyond my control. dates escape me.

                              I saw several classic groups at the MRF..Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Buddy Miles, too many to name.

                              I saw Foghat and Johnny Winter at the Fox in Atlanta also.
                              I agree with Davhaf.....Kaiser March 9,2004

                              Mick Jagger is in better shape than far too many NBA players. It's up in the air whether the same can be said of Keith Richards.
