I forgot Ratt and Poison, seen both bands several times and I saw the Scorpions as well. Chicago must have been a pretty cool show. Back in the day I listened to Chicago, especially after I broke up with a girl or just met one or was just trying to get it on with one in the car. Today, the songs are still great but now I just listen to them cause I like them.:eek:

I used to work for a band so I saw different bands every weekend, not many worth noting.
Public Assassin was the name of them then.
Now the remnants are in
Burning Inside.
Our drummer went to Death, then Iced Earth... now he works on Howard Stern (last I heard).

I am sure if I kept track there would be a hundred or so bands I could list.
Actual concerts I went to? Much less.
Don't laugh...

Metallica
Phil Collins
Matchbox 20
Poison
George Thorogood
Soundgarden
ZZ top
Sepultura

In clubs I saw a few like
LA Guns

I almost got to see Hootie and the blowfish early on but they oversold and I didn't want to get caught in there if the place caught on fire. It was awful so I left.
I think they were playing with Kings X who were the ones I really wanted to see.

ahhh, I just can't remember the club ones.
Not too many anyone would know.

Some chick opened for Matchbox 20, but I can't remember who.
At the time she made them look bad, we left when they were doing a Cindi Lauper acoustic cover! (I think it was time after time) :lol:

Yeah, he used to be my roommate years ago.
:lol:
He's a pretty weird guy.

He was on tour last year with the other guys doing comedy shows. I was going to go see him in Baltimore but he called me and said that he had to go down South for a bit in Harold and Kumar 2.
Didn't see his name on the credits. Haven't watched the movie yet... was he in there?

I always wanted to see The Stones while they were still alive but I was way to young to go to a concert in 1975.
