forget the very first, but in quick 1970's succession, Led Zepplin and Jethro Tull...
Janice Joplin at the old Filmore East on Second Avenue. It blew my mind - couldn't believe she was white 'cause I had only heard her on the radio. I always liked her line: the best for a girl to show she digs a guy she just met is to take him home and screw him.
I got into Janis in my post-high school years. I'll never forget watching the Monterey Pop concert and thinking "HOLY SHIT!"
It would have to be Al Green in England, 1974. Amazing. So long ago
Don't judge but LeAnn Rimes lol
It was 1997, winter. My mom only listened to country at the time, and LeAnn Rimes was my favorite next to Shania Twain.
My next concert was Avenged Sevenfold/Bullet for my valentine/Three Days Grace. Then I saw Fall out Boy/Wiz Kalifa and then Red Jumpsuit Apparatus did a private concert in my town and I got to hang out with them after the show because I'm friends with the local band lead singer that opened for them
Beatles 1965, saw Paul in 2008, 2012, and got tickets for Sept. 30 in Edmonton.
I was BORN AND RAISED with the Beatles. White Album, Sgt. Pepper and Revolver all on records provided me with a very happy childhood.
Jerry Lee Lewis, around 1971 or so. I saw Dylan and The Band in 74, that was fun. Many more since
My first concert was J. Geils with Cheap Trick 1982
Wow, I saw J. Geils that year! In February 1982, at the Boston Garden. I saved the concert shirt and tix stubs even. But Cheap Trick wasn't part of the Geils show I saw - although I did see Cheap Trick at UMass in 1984, at an outdoor spring concert.
I read in the Globe that John Warren Geils Jr. (the J. Geils namesake) died a year ago. Now I've got to go listen to some Geils!
What? Not one first Grateful Dead attendee? Bill Graham said, "They're not the best at what they do, they're the best!" Unforgettable!
The Doobie Brothers in 1970, I was seven years old… My uncle snuck me and my sister out of my mothers opera in a smaller hall in the Lincoln Center complex, maybe it was Avery Fisher Hall?… I’m not sure anymore, because I was seven ...and in to see the Doobie Brothers at the bigger hall at Lincoln Center, my mom was pissed... my uncle was a cop so he just walked us in with his badge. My first whiff of weed and I remember the sea of blue jeans... I became a rock fan that day. At the champagne reception after my mothers event I went through a door that locked behind me and found my self on the stage floor with the Doobie Brothers packing the gear... now better understanding how things work I realize they were the roadies
I think it was 1981 - The Rolling Stones Start Me Up Tour
I saw him in the 80s! Amazing! I even had one of his albums until I gave up my vinyl before moving to Germany. ?
Foreigner '81 at The Forum.
"her" lmfao...you know you're going to hell, don't you?
