    My nomination for best concert ever.....

    1985. I'm stationed out in 29 Palms, CA.....middle of the high desert. Closet McDonalds is in Yucca Valley, 20 miles away. One Saturday night a couple of us decide to run up into the mountains to Pioneer Town. Population something like 50.......but they had a great little bar there and it made for a nice motorcycle ride up and back......

    We get up there and are told that there's a $10 cover charge because there's gonna be live entertainment that night. Never happened before, but we grumble a little, fork over the $10 and start shooting a little pool. Prob no more than 30 people in the entire joint. The lights dim a little and out walks "Three Dog Night"! They played for 3 hours then sat there and drank beer and shot pool with us until the bar closed.

    Amazing.....

    Winter Warped Tour at The Boathouse 2002 was the first and best live show I've been. That jank was nutz, the floor was oscillating around the mosh pit, I almost got stomped to death. Oh, and permanent hearing damage is my constant reminder of how awesome the show was.

    The most recent was a band called The Klocks at Cool River in Irving. Imagine 40-year old white guys singing "Baby got back" and "yeah" along with a ton of other foghat, incubus, and a bunch of other stuff I don't remember.

    I think I also left The Eagles off my list. I saw them on The Long Run Tour. I've been listening to their latest the last couple of days, recalled I had left them off my list.

    I lived across from Camp Randal stadium in Madison, WI when the Rolling Stones played. We sat on our front porch and heard the whole thing - does that count?


    There's gotta be 20-30 others, at least. I grew up near Milwaukee, & I spent a bunch of time at Summer Fest for a few years - the largest outdoor music festival in the world, so I've seen a lot of live shows.

    I'll edit this to add more as I think of them...
