    Speaking of dating oneself. In no order whatsoever.

    Freddie and the Dreamers
    Herman's Hermits
    Elvis Presley
    Creedence Clearwater Revival
    B. J. Thomas
    Bobby Vinton
    Little Anthony and the Imperials
    Rolling Stones
    Gerry and the Pacemakers
    Tom Jones
    Dave Clark Five
    Manfred Mann
    Them
    Percy Sledge
    Righteous Brothers
    Gene Pitney
    Iron Butterfly
    The Byrds
    The Four Seasons
    The Kinks
    Jackie Wilson
    Marvin Gaye
    Roy Orbison
    Jerry Lee Lewis
    Lou Christie
    Donovan
    Animals
    Jay and the Americans
    Peter and Gordon
    Leslie Gore
    Gary Lewis and the Playboys
    Gary Pucket and the Union Gap
    Paul Revere and the Raiders
    Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs
    Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels

    I'm sure I missed some. In the mid 60s to early 70s it was easy to go to concerts and not spend a fortune. I say Little Anthony and the Imperials (1967) and the Rolling Stones (1968 I think) at Auburn University. Creedence was brought in by the Army to Fort Ord, CA unfortunately the trainees could not attend, so about 200 junior officers and junior enlisted got to spread our blankets on the football field right in front of the stage for a full concert.

    Since we are just talking music here, I'll stick with those. I haven't been to a lot, but I have seen a few concerts from both sides of the stage, and most in the 90's.

    Steppenwolf (mid-90's), Newsboys (mid-80's), Oak Ridge Boys, Celine Dion (wife wanted to go, don't ask), Fats Domino, Randy Travis, George Jones, Natalie Cole, Reba, and that is just what comes to mind at the moment.

    I have seen a couple of big name comedians on stage, and worked details for a couple of movies and a few actors and actresses. Sometimes working security jobs is fun.

    I'll have to think on this a while, but get this. I was at Jim Croce's last concert (Bad, Bad Leroy Brown). He was killed in a plane crash immediately after the concert. I didn't see the crash, but I saw the aftermath.

    *Takes a deep breath*
    Rock: Grateful Dead, Phish, Bob Dylan, Frank Zappa, Rush, Skynyrd.
    Metal: Ozzy, Dio, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Overkill, COC, DRI.
    Country: Alabama, Montgomery Gentry, Reba, Oak Ridge Boys.
    Jazz: Ink Spots, Buddy Rich, Woody Herman.
    I'm sure there are some I am forgetting at the moment. I've been playing various stringed instruments since 1977, as a result, I have developed a rather varied taste in music.

    George Strait (6 or 7 times)
    Johnny Cash in the final year of his touring career
    Pirates of the Mississippi
    Tim McGraw
    Faith hill
    Kenny Chesney
    Dixie Chicks (before they got stupid)
    Sawyer Brown
    Josh Turner
    Carmen
    Clay Walker
    Terri Clark


    Some others I am sure I am forgetting.

    Well, considering I spent the better part of my teens and early 20s at shows, this will be a long list, and one that I'm sure I'll have to come back to as I remember more. But, for starters...

    Hank Williams, Jr. (ditto)
    Motorhead
    Metallica (x2)
    Megadeth (x3)
    Slayer
    Dio
    Anthrax
    Overkill
    testament
    Queensryche
    Fishbone
    The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
    Gang Green
    The Circle Jerks
    The Exploited
    Cowboy Junkies
    Camper Van Beethoven
    Sonic Youth
    Nine Inch Nails (x2)
    Meat Beat Manifesto
    The Cure
    Love and Rockets (x2)
    Peter Murphy
    The Pixies (x2)
    R.E.M.
    The Sugarcubes
    Transvision Vamp
    The Ordinaires
    Ministry
    Skinny Puppy
    Soundgarden
    Pearl Jam
    The Red Hot Chili Peppers (x4, at least)
    Lush
    Ice Cube
    The Beastie Boys
    The Melvins
    The Meat Puppets
    Mudhoney
    The Primitives
    Minor Threat
    The Butthole Surfers
    Stryper
    Animotion
    Samantha Fox and New Kids on the Block (not by choice, these)
    Xymox
    The Cult
    Chem Lab

    Bruce Springsteen (though that's kind of a gimme for me)
    The Ramones
    Front 242
    Information Society
    Jesus and Mary Chain
    Janes Addiction

    OK, it's late, I'm sick (and tired), so that will have to do for now. I guess I can't blame all my hearing loss on firearms, can I?
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Outstanding....I went in 1999 or 1998 when I was working in NYC. Saw her at the Knitting Factory when she released "Malediction and Prayer." Her vocal range is incredible. Definitely see her whenever you can.

    I also saw The Black Heart Procession.

    OPFOR...our musical taste is very similiar; I always wanted to see Ministry, Meatbeat Manifesto, and NIN....love their stuff. I'm also a huge Cure fan (since "Faith" came out)...and have yet to have seen them. Others I would have loved to have seen are Siouxsie and the Banshees, Depeche Mode, Bauhaus, The Art of Noise, The Swans, Christian Death, Portishead, and Massive Attack.
