    I've seen The Alman Brother's (Miami 1970) , JGiles Band (1971 Orlando), 3 dog night (Orlando) ZZtop (1972 Miami), Journey (1884 Hawaii) and the best one out of them all for show and not music would be believe it or not, Elton John. (Newark, I think it was 1973.

    I would have loved to have seen Queen. My favorite albums were "News of the World" and "Jazz".

    Only a year after you I saw Led Zeppelin at the Forum in L.A. That was the best concert I'd ever been to until I saw:

    The Eagles at Yokohama Marine Stadium in Japan, "Hell Freezes Over" tour, 1993 I think. Three hour show, everyone sang and did their solo stuff. Joe Walsh did Rock Mountain Way. They performed their absolute best, you could tell no one was just going through the motions.

    The scariest concert I ever attended was Yngwie Malmsteen, Nakano Sun Plaza in Tokyo 1996(?). During a solo he did some sort of digital repeating feedback loop that just sounded evil. I thought Satan was gonna' appear!

    I like your avitar Harry. At OzzFest 2000, I saw BucketHead sit in with Primus for a song. Only Yngwie has faster fingers!

    This one:

    FYI, as I recall it cost $7 A DAY to attend, but by the second day, after the crowds has crashed the 15' chain link fences down, it was free.

    Whenh Jefferson Airplane was on stage, I'd climbed into the scaffolding over the stage and watched their proformance fifty feet over their heads.

    Jan Joplin showed up in a limo flanked by a hells angels escort.

    It was a rockin time, folks.

    So rocking that a few week later, when two girls asked me to go with them from AC to some cowpasture called Woodstock, I passed on the opportunity thinking it would be nothing worthy of the trip.

    Yeah, that's right...I'm the only East Coast hippie you'll ever meet who wasn't at Woodstock.

    I was too cool for Woodstock

    "Woodstock" came to Hawaii --one by one--far too many from 69 to 71 to list.

    Best always sorta depended on my mind set at the time. Blind Faith was great but I had a hell of a lot more fun at a 5 hour Steve Miller marathon at the University of Hawaii oudoor theater. Oh Mercy !!:lol:
