    Brag post - one of my best friends growing up played lead guitar on multiple Alice tours! He even had a line in Wayne’s World when the boys went back stage. Pete Freezin- almost his real name

    Just last month I took my 10-year-old daughter to her first concert in a small room at HOB Anaheim, where we saw Kitty Kat Fan Club and Koo Koo Kanga Roo.

    New Edition. Not the original hotness but the first reunion hotness when Bobby Brown wouldn't show up so it was just the 5 of them (original lineup plus Johnny) and not all 6. I was in college so that was probably somewhere around 96.

    When I look at my concert "resume'", I feel incredibly blessed to have seen the following:
    CCR
    Alice Cooper
    Dylan
    Springsteen
    Led Zepplin
    The Who
    Stones
    CSN&Y
    Traffic
    Genesis
    Frank Zappa
    Trapeze
    Dire Straits
    Lyle Lovett
    Pure Prairie League
    Crosby & Nash

    ...there are more shows I attended, but these are ones that were notably memorable...
    (edited for brevity and, well, to focus more on the shows now listed)
