    I am soooooooooo jealous you guys have seen some great bands.

    I've only got two

    Rage Against the Machine..........where I had my first (and hopefully only) near death experience. Like I was attacked by a tide wave, I was smothering, some one I pulled me out, I got me some O2 from an emergency set up--and watched the rest from further back!! All things considers it was an awesome concert!

    Pearl Jam......great even from our nose bleed seats!

    Great topic

    Regret never having seen the Dead. Kicking myself for not seeing Jane's Addiction A Madison Square a couple of weeks ago but didn't want to take the train back late that night and then have to wake up for work the next day.

    There's probably more that I'm forgeting.

    iT'S BEEN KIND OF DIFFICULT OF LATE. THERE HAS BEEN SO MANY CANCELLATIONS, DUE TO WORLD EVENTS. WANTED TO SEE "N"SYNC AND BACKSTREET BUT WAS HESITANT ABOUT GOING. EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE MUCH YOUNGER THAN MYSELF, IT IS SOMETHING ABOUT THEIR MUSIC THAT MOVES ME. MY HUSBAND USED "N"SYNC'S CD "GOD MUST HAVE SPENT A LITTLE MORE TIME ON YOU" WHEN WE RENEWED OUR VOWS..YEAH, HE'S SAPPY !!!

    i've only seen two. michael jackson--which i had permission from my parents.like to watch him dance but i think he has really ruined himself now. then sammy hagar. five of us girls lied and said we were spending the night with each other and then set off for dallas, tx. about 75 miles north of the little town i am from. well my friends car that we went in wouldn't start after the concert so two guys that we didn't even know drove us back to our home town. when we got there we got in my car around 1 in the a.m. couldn't go home so slept in the car. for the rest of the night one of the girls kept waking up saying she needed toilet paper cause she had to sh**. what memories. think heart and cheap trick were at the concert too.

    alright, here's my list, but I'm only including the ones that I think count because I liked the band or thought they were good live (the rest really sucked or are just not worth the mention!)

    -Metallica
    -Soul Coughing
    -Local H (5 or 6 times)
    -Soul Asylum
    -Foo Fighters (I LOVE Dave Grohl...I mean it....really...)
    -Ben Folds Five
    -Scott Weiland without STP - he is amazing on stage
    -Richard Thompson x4
    -Matchbox Twenty (I REALLY don't like them, but was surprised that the show was pretty good)
    -Boys Like to Scare You - just found out they changed the name to "Better Days Behind"..they are a local band, but worth mentioning just cause they put on a better show then most big name bands
    -Black Crowes
    -Megadeth
    -Kenny Wayne Shepard
    -Violent Femmes

    I think that covers all that I can remember...I might have to add more if any come to mind.
