    rock shows

    This could be fun... especially if
    69Falcon
    RALLYMASTER
    69Falcon chimes in...

    Who have you seen? I'll start...

    Guns N' Roses
    Aerosmith w/ Joan Jett
    Slash with Miles Kennedy and the Conspirators (honestly, the best rock show I've ever seen) w/ Unlocking the Truth
    Def Leppard w/ Bryan Adams
    Gin Blossoms
    George Thorogood w/ Johnny A.
    LIT w/ 22 Jacks
    Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
    Brian Setzer Orchestra
    Mighty Mighty Bosstones w/ Clowns for Progress
    Dream Theater w/ Big Wreck
    Creed w/ Sevendust
    Santana w/ Macy Gray
    Susan Tedeschi

    That's all I can remember off the top of my head. Kind of a short list when I think about it.

    Regrets? I never saw Kurt Cobain, Chris Cornell, Scott Wyland, Layne Staley, or Chester Bennington sing. But I sang with Dave Brubeck one night while I was still in high school, and it doesn't get much cooler than that.

    1988 "BlackHawk" project
    1989 "RallyHawk" is Chuck's now!
    1988 "The Gray" Tempest Gray Metallic stocker

    I can't tell you how peaceful it is. Shinya Kimura

    Hell...all off the top of my head and I know I strayed out of the genre and missed a bunch. I never went to a live, true rock concert, that I didn't like...ever.

    Now that I think about it, I didn't waste all my money on cars, women and bikes...it was concerts - and I don't regret it one bit.

    Now - who do I absofuckinlutely want to see before I depart this rock?

    Foo Fighters, Kid Rock once more, both with my sons and wife. Fuck - if that could be one show, I'd be good to move onto other celestial plains...

      My first concert was at Fillmore in San Francisco around 1968 if I remember right. Chuck Berry was the headliner. When we got there, there
      was some band playing. I did not know who the hell they were so asked around. Finally got the the answer... Santana. Last song Chuck did that night
      was "My Ding-a-Ling".

      Not many after that. Def Leppard, Journey, Foreigner, Bad Company and Moody Blues.

        My dad took me to the beach boys, long after they where the beach boys...

        I was street riding in Boston one time and Kansas was playing in government center... Not sure it that counts.

        Other than that Chuck Ragan x4 or 5
        Trampled by Turtles Tim barry x7-10
        Kyle Tracolla
        Revival Tour 2
        Adam Faucet

        And that about sums it up. I may be missing a few small bar shows.. are we counting openers here? Cause if so I have seen at least three times that many...

        I'm a little later to see Rage or Nirvana, but those would be the ones.

        Penny Wise still plays... But I doubt it would be the same. Good news is we could probably get them to come play the farm if me and the neighbors pooled some cash... Or maybe the Rally?

        Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

                  Heaps of punk and hardcore shows by bands nobody on here would know or care about.


                  I have never been to a stadium rock concert,I always thought they were cheesy AF but now that I’m old regret not seeing Slayer with Dave Lombardo and Jeff Hanneman.

                  The last rock concert I went to was Wolf Alice and The Big Pink. It was fantastic,went with someone who is a member on here.

                          You have some good taste in music my friend.

                          How was Social D?
                          Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

                            Thank you! Social Distortion was just a frenzied good time. Great energy for the show, crowd was all rev'd up, and the red headed yoga instructor I took seemed to like it a lot too.

                            I've spent most of my money on women, beer, cars and motorcycles. The rest of it I just wasted.

                              My list would be like Wild Will's if I actually typed it out.

                              Back in the big hair 80's I did sound, lighting and guitar tech work for a band whose biggest claim to fame was opening for Quiet Riot when they came through So Cal.
                              I've seen I don't know how many big and little bands over the years.
                              Everything from Metallica to Joni Mitchell and everything in between.
