    In Response to Re: OK You told about your worst concert, Now tell your best : I wasn't talking to you.   And I think the person I was addressing is quite capable of speaking for himself.   And if you saw what I saw in the way of music, you'd understand why I mentioned it.  Trite as this sounds, it was a mind-altering experience.   It was a musical performance that I will never experience again, truly once in a lifetime.  I kicked your butt about Jagged Little Pill, that is probably the real issue here.   Don't mess with me.   You don't know who you're dealing with.  :)

    In Response to Re: OK You told about your worst concert, Now tell your best : Can only imagine what it was like to see Neil Young at that time (or any time, for that matter).  Sounds like it was amazing.    Especially a Bridge School benefit.  Doesn't get more special than that.  Sweet.

    It was an amazing experience given the events of the day. I have seen a lot of concerts in my life, but that one will always be memorable. Young was very talkative that night, as were all of the performers. The atmosphere was real apprehensive when we arrived, but it soon turned into kind of an amazing healing process for all involved. A special night indeed.

    Pearl Jam in Mansfield a couple of years ago - great, great, show.

    Eric Clapton at Mansfield a few years ago when he was promoting the CD of Robert Johnson songs

    The Dead and Dylan on the old Sullivan Stadium - The All Along the Watchtower was simply amazing and I was mostly drug free.

    It's very difficult to choose just one, but the one that is most vivid in my memory was Bruce Springsteen at the Boston Garden during The River tour in December of 1980. The show itself was fantastic -- even by the lofty standards that applied to Springsteen in those days (and may still, for all I know) -- but what I specifically remember was having to drive through a raging blizzard to get there, fearing all the while that the show might be postponed due to the inclement wheather.

    It was not, and although the band came on almost an hour late, it was well worth the wait. They played two sets of roughly 90 minutes each and to this day it remains the single most energetic show I've ever seen.

    In Response to Re: OK You told about your worst concert, Now tell your best : I'm not sure.   Maybe the way you fall in love with one person, even though there are beautiful, amazing, inspiring people all around you.  yogi / peace / out - have a sweet day.

    I love music more than anything, but different music and different bands inspire different feelings. But the love of music can never match the love of a woman.

    There were two that really stand out in my mind. The first was a show that my gf at the time really wanted to see be cause she really loved kiss. I didn't really care one way or the other about kiss, but I took her because I was in love. It turned out that the opening act was Little Feat, and they played an amazing set. Kiss won me over that night as well. The other one was a ZZ Top show where Brownsville Station was the opening act (Smokin' In The Boys' Room). But that might have had something to do with the big ball of opium we smoked before the show... Cool

    Funny thing kargiver (besides my spelling) the show went on without a hitch.  Aerosmith came on and rocked the house.  Another interesting tibit about that day is the beginning part of GNR Paradise City video was filmed at that concert.  There is a shot of Axel from his left and in it you can see my girlfriend (at the time) dancing in the stands behind him.  She the hot girl with the big hair.
