    How about Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff? Went to a reggae music concert in St Martins where the aroma of ganja hovered over the crowd. I was the only white face there and showed up early 6pm cause I didn't have a ticket. They didn't start playing til after 11pm and played til 4 in the morning. Pretty memorable.

    SPINOFF- What is your favorite venue?  I had a great time at a Sunday night show at the Bluebird in Nashville earlier this year for short money. There are a lot of clubs there that are inexpensive, with relatively unknown, talented people doing a variety of types of music

    My sentimental favourite would have to be the old Checkerboard Lounge on 43rd and King Drive in Chicago.  Used to go there in the late 1970s and early 1980s when Buddy Guy and Junior Wells owned it and played there most weekends.

    Wish I'd been there for that one!  Missed that show unfortunately, but was there many times when Buddy Guy and Junior Wells were playing with the house band.  Buddy Guy owned the place at the time.  

     

     Check this one out when Buddy and Junior get on stage (watch it a bit) . . .those are the two I used to see all the time.  Lefty Dizz too . . . Better than the Stones, I think . .

    We used to go to the Double Door.  I don't think the Checkerboard has been around for a long time. Kinston Mines was the other one.

    Clapton had been known to swing in and play at the Double Door on occassion.

    That video is hilarious. Very likely on an off night on the Tatoo You Tour.  Waters died a couple years later.

    Red Rocks for an outdoor venue.  That's hard to beat, IMO.  

    I;m not sure I can name a favorite indoor one. Theater wise, probably the Chicago Theater.  Little old ladies hold the door for you and it's completely wide open in there. Saw some fun shows in there.

    Club wise?  Not sure on that one.  There's a cool old movie theater called the Visulite in Charlotte that works very well as a club for shows. Saw some good ones in there.

    The Paradise was always a good crap hole.  Many of the clubs are kind of the same box style venues that smell like piszs and stale beer.

    Chastain Park in Atlanta is cool.

    THey always get forgotten about a lot. Incredibly underrated. They made great records, too.   COsmos Factory is my favorite.  Ramble Tamble kicks it off and there is that killer bridge jam thingy that is just righteous.  I found a solid vinyl copy recently and it sounds pretty good.

    Fogerty can not only still really play, he literally sounds JUST like he did in the early 1970s.

    Pendulum is my other favorite record of theirs. Great camping/tailgating music.
