I NEED to see Gogol's Bordello. And will

I forgot smaller ones like Alex Chilton, Ron Sexmith, Martin Sexton, Jonathatn Richman, Son Volt, Ryan Montbleu...lotsa music in Chapel Hill, can't even remember all the bands that came through. I probably even saw LionTamerX and didn't know it.

I saw The Who at The Merriweather Post Pavillion in Columbia MD in probably '71 maybe? Somewhere around that time. I know they did Tommy.
It was way back in the olden days, when you could still take a blanket, and cooler and not get searched....and you could sit under the trees and catch a buzz and enjoy the music.....and no one gave a **** about what went on as long as the music was good.

ahh....
Cool

RP, I can remember that concert very well, even though I don't remember the date. I think at the time I knew it was momentous. It was a visually exciting show, in an outside pavillion....a much different atmosphere than an inside arena.

yep.
it was a long long long time ago.
I think concert tickets to the Baltimore Civic Center back then were less than $10.

In the 1970's I was in love with Linda Ronstadt. I saw her perform live and sing all of my favorites. She also performed songs from an album that was about to be released. Her live performance of "Down So Low" was the most soulful thing I have ever heard.

My younger brother is a professional bass guitarist. He performed live with various punk groups and as a studio musician for their albums. The most notable rocker my brother played with is Henry Rollins.

I've seen The Who twice, within the past few years. They were awesome.

Aaah I've seen the Beach Boys too - quite rusty I might add - at the opening season of a Padre game.

Santana plays here in San Diego once a year, and I have enjoyed that
on several occasion. When they opened for the Rolling Stones, I thought
they were a hell of a lot better than the Stones.

James Taylor was good, so was Elton John on tour with Billy Joel.

Prince was pretty good too.

Depeshe Mode
Cheap Trick
U2
Kenny Loggins
James Taylor
Fleetwood Mac
Eric Clapton
Van Morrison
Jimmy Buffet

Allison Krause

James Taylor was my favorite, he played at an outdoor ampitheater near St Louis on a beautiful night.
Saw Allison Krause at Chateau Ste Chapelle Winery. Nice place to drink wine and listen to music outdoors.
