    Couple of people mentioning Jimi, doesn't really apply to me as he was dead before I ever heard him.
    But it reminded me of an interview I saw with Pete Townsend who of course met and heard Jimi loads of times.

    I think about the artists I waas lucky enough to see rather than those I didn't. The 70's were a great time - big artists played at smaller, intimate venues. The biggest venues in bham were the Town Hall, Odeon Cinema and Hippodrome Theatre. I was really lucky to see m most of ny favourite artists at these venues - Focus, Zeppelin, Sabbath, Purple, Rory Galllagher, The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Queen, John Martyn, Elton John, Groundhogs, Tony McPhee, The Stones, Lynyrd Skynrd, Golden Earring, Robin Trower, Stevie Winwood, Queen, Sutherland Bros. and Quiver, Mannfred Mann's Earthband, Mahavishnu Orchestra, 10cc, Wishbone Ash, Uriah Heep, Thin Lizzy. Jeff Healey, Bros. Johnson, Cameo, Chic & Japan. Then I had to go to the larger venue of the Stafford Bingley Hall to see the Eagles, just after Joe Walsh joined them. At the NEC I saw Earth Wind and Fire, George Benson, Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder. Since then I've concentrated on the Symphony Hall- fantastic venue, and have seen Elivs Costello, Clapton, Harry Connick jr., Freddie Jackson, Gregg Allman, Buddy Guy, Jamie Cullum, Robert Cray. Transaatlantic sessions, Alliison Krauss & Union Station,& Glenn Campbell.
    Have also been to other venues to see Gary Moore, and again Clapton, The Eagles, Jeff Beck, George Michael, Zeppelin, The Zombies, Jan Akkerman, The Christians, Mountain, Alexander O'Neal, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Walter Trout, Jan Akkerman, Gregory Isaacs and The Diamonds. There are other gigs but which are perhaps not as memorable
    How kucky have I been!
    Oh, artists I would love to have seen - Dennis Brown (one of my favourite singers of all time), Free, Hendrix and Peter Green.

    Thin Lizzy - just.
    If you're reading a thread I've created it's probably to do with something breaking or not going to plan again.

    Bob, move heaven & earth to see this band, we came out shell-shocked by John Lydon's performance.

    Judging by what I've heard of the new album I'd not bother now - he sounds like yer nan croaking out a PiL Karaoke...

    I never tried for tickets for the Cream RAH reunion. I know there's a risk when old gits reform but still wish I'd been there.

    Frank Zappa. Have seen ZPZ and The Grandemothers though, so I feel I have had a good part of the experience.
    Pink Floyd. Though again, seeing Roger Waters do The Wall last year partially made up for that, as did Australian Pink Floyd.
    Bauhaus. Couldn't make it to the reunion a few years back, but 'You never know'.

    Would have liked to have seen The Doors, alas I was 3 when Morrison died.

    My biggest regret is turning down a ticket and a lift to The Stone Roses at Spike Island, not that the performance was up to much but I could have said I was there.

    Cheers BB

    Just remembered this one and it qualifies for both the current threads . My Dad was a Jazz fan and I was the only one that showed any sort of interest as a result he would take me with him this way I got to see some real legends that I would have been too young to see at the time (Miles Davis , Duke Ellington , Dizzy Gillespie) .
    One of the earliest he took me to was Nina Simone at Ronnie Scotts. I was really thrilled as I loved her music. Sadly this was the notorious concert she came on to rapturous applause played about two bars of the first song intro , someone from the floor shouted out My Baby Just Cares for me and she slammed down the piano lid and walked off never to return . I never did get to see her again and you could not call this seeing her either . Still love her music and a bit like John Martyn when they are bad they are really bad but when they fly you will not hear anything better .
