Tomorrow night I have the oppertunity to cross off John Fogerty from my "must see" list and next Monday I'll be crossing off Weird Al. After those two fellows there really isn't anybody else that I feel I 'must see' although it would be cool to see AC/DC or Paul McCartney I don't have that huge of an urge to see them. Next month I'm planning on seeing Alice Cooper, while he is not a 'must see' I've wanted to see him for some time now.

What about the rest of you, are there bands that you feel you want to see while they are still around? These are bands that you have not yet seen. For example I've seen Metallica 6 times and I'll go see them again for sure next time they come around.

Al Cooper is more of a must see than Al Yankovic. Are you kidding me ???

there are not many groups that i want to see but haven't (other than those no longer together obviously - what i wouldn't have given to see thin lizzy or AC/DC with bon). the only two that spring to mind at the moment are my dying bride and radiohead.

I saw Little Big Town last weekend at the Country Music Festival. Wasn't much of a country music fan before I met my woman. I think the thing that draws me to LBT is there vocal harmonization. They sounded great in concert, and I picked up an autographed copy of their first CD.

I'd like to see Rush another time or two, they will be here in September.

Off my to see list (already seen)
The Eagles
Fleetwood Mac
Cheap Trick
INXS (with the original lead singer before he ended his life)
ZZ TOP
Pearl Jam
CSNY
Neil Young and Crazy Horse
Barry Manilow (yeah I said it, and I saw him, so there)

He played for about 2 hours and it kicked maximum booty!

I saw Alice's Welcome to My Nightmare Tour back in the old college days (1970-something). Awesome! Very much a showman, and the stage production (yep, it was like a play) was w-a-y ahead of its time. He doesn't take himself seriously, and that was fun, too.

Fogerty came through my town about two years ago, and a buddy of mine here at work went and said it was great. Sets, band, the whole 9 yards.

I think you've got two good prospects on you list, JJB. :thumbsup:

I think it's a state law here in MI that everyone must see him at least once in their lifetime.

Roger Waters is the only "true" concert I've been to, and is really the only one on my "must" list. If David Gilmour comes around here (not likely) then he is too, and if they reunite, but I doubt that'll happen. Queen would be awesome to see but I'm not completely sold on Paul Rodgers.

I need to make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land (aka Michigan) to see Uncle Teddy in his element. I have several friends who have moved to MI and say they will NEVER live in California again (kiss my Glo...). I'm beginning to have thoughts like that, myself, since my career is on the downward slope (22 years and counting....:tired:)

I like that state law, Cappy! :thumbsup:

I would only recommend making a move here if you have no use for employment. Ranking last in economic growth in the nation doesn't provide for too many job choices if/when you get here. I love it here, but I have no misleadings. I'll be gone as soon as I graduate.
