hehe...my first concert...well, um, it's a little embarrassing.   ::) :-[  ok, here goes.  It was Neil Diamond.  Went with my mom and several other people.  I was about 12 or 13-ish.

Have seen MANY since that were MUCH better.  Who blew me away?   hmmm....Tina was friggin awesome.  Was in the 4th row.  Madonna - Confession was great too.  Got the little "hi five on the go" as she was walking out the catwalk.   ;D

The KISS tour in 96 when they went back to make-up was cool.  A fire (a real, unplanned one) was started in the scaffold, up high on the set right at the end of the last song in the main set.  All the lights came on and everyone was pissed.  Then some dude came on the P.A. system and informed that KISS would return, but a small fire had to be put out first.  GOOD TIMES!!!

I think my real first concert was in 1969 or 70.  Humble Pie and Spooky Tooth were playing at the Aud, in downtown Buffalo.

Missed Woodstock, but made Watkins Glen...

My first concert was Midnight Oil, an Aussie rock band with a political statement to make.

The best concert I've been to, would have to be Prince. He's one funky, sexy, mutha

I saw Patti Smith a couple of years ago in DC.

She's kind of crap now... but she mostly sang her stuff from the 70s, and that was a lot of fun.

I remember there were some rather scary looking lesbians who kept yelling, "Do some poetry!" In between each song.  Patti Smith finally got sick of it and said, "Man... shut the f*** up" really dryly.  My friends and I cheered.

She did an awesome cover of "When Doves Cry," and I almost made pee pee in my pantaloons.

I've been trying to remember what concert was my first and either it was too long ago, or I had too much fun, or whatever, but I can't remember. ~sigh~

I do recollect quite a few Grateful Dead concerts, a very stoned and incoherent Neil Young, Jethro Tull, The Talking Heads (I think), B.B. King with Ron Wood and Rick Danko in a small theater in upstate NY, Robert Jr. Lockwood (who recently died) in a small pub in Kent OH, Bob Dylan (with the Dead), Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and quite a few even hazier memories of loud music and stoned crowds.

The most memorable would be seeing Ray Davies and Robert Plant within a few days of each other in a small venue - but only because it happened about a year and a half ago.

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most. ::) At least I had fun losing it! ... er.... from what I remember!

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
