Seen over 100 concerts in my life(most back in the 70’s and 80’s) but the one that always stood out above the rest was Elton John on July 4th,1976 at Foxboro Stadium. Probably the wildest concert I ever been to in my life.

Saw a 74 year old Bob Seger this week that kicked ass. Solid gold for 2.5 hours.

The Who, Chicago and J Geils in no special order.
ps I saw JGeils perform at the tiny Woodrose Ballroom in South Deerfield MA when the group was first starting out back in I would say the late 60's, and had a feeling even then that would achieve greatness someday.

Couple of concerts I went to in the 70’s that were surprisingly very good was 3 Dog Night and The Bee Gees. 3 Dog Night was actually my first concert back in 1972.

Can remember many nights cruising the highway smoking a joint and listening to Radar Love. Think it was an 8-track tape back then lol. Those were the good old days.

Led Zeppelin, Charlotte, N.C. OLD Coliseum. First tour.

Smokin' dope, drinking in the 2nd level. Could get away with that sh*t back then.

3 Dog Night was good as were the Guess Who @ same venue.

Yes, I'm old.

Mention of Little River Band reminded me of a concert I went to on June 14, 1980 at the Yale Bowl in New Haven. Eagles, Heart and Little River Band. We were late getting to show and only heard LRB as we were walking to stadium. They were off stage by the time we got in. Eagles(with Joe Walsh) and Heart put on a great show that day.

I read that was the last concert at Yale Bowl because neighbors complained about the noise and cloud of pot smoke lol.

February 3,1975 at the Palace Theatre in Providence,RI was the first time I saw my favorite band REO Speedwagon. Joe Walsh did some guitar play on their 3rd album(Ridin the Storm Out), so REO toured with Walsh that year. Charlie Daniels Band also played that night.

The Palace was a relatively small place that seats about 3,000. I remember after Charlie Daniels Band finished, we were expecting REO to come out since Joe Walsh was the headline. But instead, Walsh took the stage and played. At point someone threw a joint on stage and Walsh picked it up and said, “someone just threw a misdemeanor on stage” and proceeded to light it up right on stage. When Walsh finished, everyone started to leave, but before we(my brother was with me) got too disappointed, a guy walked on stage and announced that REO will be on shortly. Most people continued walking out since no one knew REO at that time and were there to see Joe Walsh. There was only about 100 people left and everyone went up to the front seats and watch REO play a set.

Joe Walsh 1975 02.03

I think we had the $5.50 seats.

Sublime before they got huge at a small bar in San Diego. My best friend got to go on stage and sing the end of Date Rape with Bradley. It was awesome.

A couple standouts:

The Who, with Moon.

Zep at Nassau Coliseum.

Bowie, Diamond Dogs at MSG.

Elvis in a small room at Rutgers when "My Aim is True" broke.

The Stones, when they had the star-shaped stage for when they did Starfucker. And 8th row center stage, opening night of a summer concert series, outside at night in the Meadowlands for Steel Wheels. Stars above, stars all around me, some nights are magic.

But, surprisingly to me, the best show I saw was The Faces at MSG.
I say "surprisingly" because though I was a fan of the band, I liked other bands better. Thought it would be a good show to see, but was blown away by how tight they were.

Similar to that surprise, I got dragged, business dinner/meeting and show, to a Chicago concert at Garden State Arts Center. Would never have gone to see them on my own, not my type of music, but live in person there was no denying the tightness of the unit and the talent.
And that horn section, even when doing their corny radio hits they were amazing to watch.
Sometimes life surprises you.

(And my personal favorite show, my band, when we got to play at the invitation of Power Station's Tony Bongiovi, outside, on the boardwalk at Wildwood. We went on at sunset. As we took the stage the lights from the ferris wheel and other rides came on in the backdrop, a hundred girls in bikinis cheering us on from the audience. I looked at my guitar player and said, "You feel it? Life can't get any better than this.") Yeah, magic.

Classic venue of the South... Warehouse N'awlins

Had the good fortune of working a few shows at the Warehouse. Always looked forward to doin' gigs there 'cause backstage they always served up the best plates of Red Beans N Rice w/Andouille sausage.

If you go to the 51:50 mark of the video(actually an audio of the concert) in the link I posted, you can hear when the joint was thrown on stage. I forgot it was a felony back then and he actually said felony not misdemeanor. At the end, you can hear the guy announce REO would be out soon. That might of been me screaming all right!! lol.

I visited the Rock and Roll HOF a four or five years ago while attending a Sox and Cleveland Series.
It was an overall interesting and enjoyable experience.

Iím just glad I got to enjoy seeing all these great bands for a very reasonable price. I saw so many awesome concerts for less than $10! What they charge for concerts nowadays is just ridiculous. I havenít been to a concert in years but I doubt they are as much fun now as they were back then. And yes it is amazing after so many years of partying that Iím still going strong at 63. Must be the good weed lol.

I've got 5 years on ya' friend... but the best I can remember is CTA for $12 bucks. Same year as their "60 minutes" piece.

Legalized 3rd party gouging that they do now should be illegal. Fuckin' artist don't even see action on it... utter BS.

Saw Chicago in Providence in Ď73. Im sure I didnít pay more than $7 or $8 for that show either. Between concerts and Providence College basketball, I spent more time at the Providence Civic Center than anyplace else lol.
