    I've seen a lot of concerts, but my favorite had to be ZZ Top with George Thorogood opening for them.

    I appreciate live music but few bands actually make much of an effort. Green Day was just 3 guys standing at their mics barely moving...same goes for a lot of bands. What makes a great show is usually just the energy of the audience. Of course, Iron Maiden did put on a great show!

    7th grade, recorder concert. We had this old fat grumpy man as a teacher. Suddenly, during some song he whips out a drum and rocks out as we played, face all red. It was great.

    I suppose The ELO spaceship thing was ok, too.

    I could drop a bunch of names but they were mostly shitty performances. Best concert I've attended? Lonesome George Thorogood.


    And Tom Petty blew Dylan AND the Dead off the stage in Buffalo.
