Queen at the Forum in 1982. A few of my roommates went, but I didn't. Never did see Mercury, though I eventually saw them a couple of times with Paul Rogers. Not the same.
I was at that show. Jerry was not up to snuff, in fact the worst I ever saw him. You probably would've been disappointed.I got invited to see the Grateful Dead at RFK Stadium in DC on June 25, 1995. I don't even remember the reason I didn't go. Probably something about a girl? Anyhow, Jerry died a couple weeks later, and I never saw the Dead.
And here I am trying to make you feel better.I wasn’t even a fan at that point, so who knows? 45 year old (and now a fan) me still rues 20 year old me’s decision.
Doreen. Doreen Gentzler. Amazingly, she is still on the air!And here I am trying to make you feel better.
Well the year before they were smoking, and the year before and the year before... I went to all the RFK shows, it was part of my summer time fun.
Funny, they used to announce on the local news when the Dead came to town to warn people about the traffic. "Hi, I'm Maureen Gentzler warning you that The Grateful Dead will be in town tonight and tomorrow." Funny because they only had two hit songs on the radio in 40+ years.
Sometimes I see shows listed for San Jose and think for a moment and say nah...... dam !I didn't see Zappa's 88 tour, I figured I'd catch it when it came around to California (cough) (cough).
I probably would have liked to see King Crimson in the 80's with Bill Bruford and Adrian Belew. I'm not a KC fan, don't have any of their CDs or anything but I've watched a few YouTube videos where I thought THAT would have been cool.
I missed Fairport Convention when they played at a local coffee shop, I'm guessing that was their last US tour!
I missed Todd Rundgren when he played in Campbell. Blue Oyster Cult too (my 17 year old son really likes them)! That's like a 20 minute drive from home. Lots of shows in San Francisco I don't go to as it's a 90 minute drive and I'm getting too old for that kinda stuff.
Plus the ceiling would drip . I remember thinking better go to that Nirvana show but blew it off...The Farm did drip tooThe Cow Palace was not the best place for a concert. The acoustics were awful. Saw Van Halen, Nirvana and Metallica there. But what history in that building.
I was at that U2 show. Also saw the Jam at Ritchie in 82(?) during "The Gift" tour. You didn't miss much (both shows). Ritchie (a gymnasium) was the worst space for live music I ever encountered. Imagine standing inside a giant reverb chamber where music is blasting. Just awful.U2 1983 at the U of Md Ritchie Coliseum for $3.00
Despite it being a bad show, I still envy you for seeing the Jam at all!I was at that U2 show. Also saw the Jam at Ritchie in 82(?) during "The Gift" tour. You didn't miss much (both shows). Ritchie (a gymnasium) was the worst space for live music I ever encountered. It was like standing inside a giant reverb chamber. Just awful.
