My sister-in-law does a Janis Joplin tribute show, she's awesome, she's got the raspy voice. Love it you saw her for real.

There have been a few concerts/performances that I have seen that have really stuck with meover my 51 years.

#1 - Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Sept. 9, 1975, Auditorium, Born to Run tour. I think this must have been what it was like for people to see Elvis for the first time. It changed rock and roll for me. We had 5th row seats off the center aisle...he jumped out in the crowd and stood on my seat playing Born to Run...his energy is amazing..not to mention being pretty cool.

#2 - Muddy Waters, April 4 , 1980, Kingston Mines. I worked with Muddy Water's daughter...Cookie and she invited me to his 65th birthday party. The bar was closed to the public and his band, along with junior Wells, Buddy Guy and James Cotton partied and played all night..

#3 - Journey, May 21-24, 1982, Rosemont Horizon. My sister in-law dated/lived with someone from the band and we spent 4 unbelievable days and nights watching the band perform at their peak. Also showed me how the music buiness is all sex, drugs and money!!

Long live rock! and never trust anyone over 30...:)

You promise not to laugh?

I never once went to a "concert", except for back in 1993, I saw the Butthole Surfurs and Stoned Temple Pilots at Val Du Lakes in MI. It was an outdoor concert, and pretty cool. Lot's of acid going around. The lead singer for the Surfers had a big upturned gong filled with buring gasoline, and every time the drums came down, he would splash some of the burning gasoline around, pretty crazy and intense. He also fired a shotgun in the air during crescendos in a couple songs. Pretty cool what you can do at an outside venue.

BUT, what I wanted to say is that the BEST times I REALLY had were the Garage Band Shows that we went to in High School. We would see hard-core Punk bands with names like "Naked Raygun" and "Born Without a Face" and "Agent Orange" etc. They would rent out a township hall (since abandoned) and it was CRAZY. All of the kids (like me) were on acid and drinking, and all of the adults just did the drugs.

They hired this HUGE lesbian for a doorman, and no one could get into this rented hall without a stamp. One night, the parents of a 16yo girl came to the hall to get their daughter, she was in trouble with them for whatever reason, and HUGE woman that might be mistaken for a man told them "you aint getting in here without a stamp, 5 bucks each". LOL Yes, they paid it, and found their daughter, but it was funny. hehe

Nothing is more fun to me than listening to hard-core punk-rock garage bands.

Larry, I can tell by your concert attendance that you were out on the West Coast for a length of time. Many of those bands that you mentioned never made it over to this side of the country.
