I would be impressed if you saw Ozzie in his prime. Or IGGY.
Other than that, who cares.
Matter of fact, I did see Iggy in his prime. It was 2013 I think. lol

Aerosmith will be doing their farewell tour next year....Giving it up while they still have the chops. Will definitely be one to see, if you can afford it. I'm sure it'll be south of 100.00.

Just got tickets to Pitbull in Chicago, my wife is so excited. I like him, Fireball is a recent example of a good tune I like.

I have certainly heard of Duran Duran, but had to google them as I wasn't certain it was an artist or group.

David Bowie, the Who, Black Sabbath and the Doors are some of my favorite old time rock and roll music.

This weekend went to a free concert which was a tribute to Earth, Wind & Fire by a band called the Shining Star. Not my kind of music, but it was free and nice to get out, eat on the grass, etc. But a lot of the people there had a hard time walking up the hill. It still seems odd to me to see the band shout out, "do want to party!", and everyone being so old, many wave but don't jump up out of their seats. There were maybe 5% young people there.

Still, a lot of them seemed to want to party, maybe 8% got up to dance in the front.

I am hardly a party animal myself, but I like being around the action.

Do 90+ year olds speed date?


I figure that by necessity, all dating at that age has to be speed dating. Not a lot of time left for taking it slow....

The 90+ call it speed dating, but to me it looks more like a tortoise race.

I saw him when he was touring for Blizzard of Oz with the legendary Randy Rhoads.
But I would've rather seen him in the early 70s w/Sab


I saw AC/DC w/Bon Scott - that's probably my best " brag "

Pffft. I saw Black Sabbath when Van Halen was the warmup act, Pink Floyd when they played Dark Side straight through, LZ when they were touring on Physical Graffiti, Skynyrd, The Who, Neil Young five times, Rush five times, Elton John when he was touring on Yellow Brick Road, Emerson, Lake and Palmer just after they released "Lucky Man", and way more than I can possibly remember.

The stoner years. What a great time.

According to wiki, that Black Sab and VanHalen Tour was in '78. Pretty cool, but not really.
I'm talking seeing them in 1970-71 when parnoid came out. That's what I'm talkin about!!

Yeah, but it's hard to say that Ozzie was in his "prime" at that time. Paranoid was only their second album and their concerts for that tour were being held in small venues, like theaters and halls. Ozzie didn't hit his prime until a few years later when they could sell out much larger venues.

I always thought "Tiny Dancer" was one of Elton's best.

Yowser! That's just gross. I'm OK with some grannies. But 85 is more than 50 years older. Absolutely no. A million times over!

I did recheck the price of the tickets for Sir Paul here in San Antonio last year. I quoted $900.00 per ticket. That was correct. He was performing at the newly renovated Tobin Performing Arts Center and had not been to town in years. The ticket prices were so expensive because a portion of it went toward fundraising for the center. A few lucky souls got tickets for a few hundred bucks, but some people paid $3000.00 per ticket. The Arts Center is a small venue compared to mega auditoriums.

My best concert memories were at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, in the 70's and early 80's. A relatively small (maybe 3000 tops) circular venue with a revolving stage—decent acoustics, and not a bad seat in the house.

I saw Zappa & the Mothers (3 times), Santana (twice), Renaissance (twice), Gentle Giant, Captain Beefheart, Harry Chapin, Sean Phillips (3 times), Dr. John, Ian Anderson, Jeff Beck, Mahavishnu, Steve Vai, ELO, The Isley Brothers… and even George Carlin, when he was taping his second HBO special. Great freeking memories.

HA ,For 900 bucks I better be taken back in time when Paul George and John were still under 40 and get a hell of a lot more than a selfie. wth??
Santana at 12, I still love Santana.
Clapton at 17.
Just missed Prince and all of Eagles before Glenn and Prince died.
Just could pull a trigger and aim it at myself over that

Joe Walsh is coming in Aug , cheapest seats 103.

“Donations accepted”


HaHaHa…. :-)

Walsh without the Eagles? I dunno… you can only listen to “Rocky Mountain Way” and “Life’s Been Good” so many times….

Now, Don Henley…? Yeah, I’d do that one. He was on Austin City Limits recently. Great stuff.

" Walsh without the Eagles? I dunno… you can only listen to “Rocky Mountain Way” and “Life’s Been Good” so many times…."






HAHA - but don't forget " Walk Away " , also a good song

A friend of my sister's turned Henley down while at the beach way back in the early 80s and he said " don't you know who I am ???? "

Too funny

Well, Billy's got the Glitter that doesn't stay in Vegas, so you'll have to take a risk to be one of his groupies...

My first concert was Janet Jackson in the Tacoma Dome on June 6, 1990 (Rhythm Nation Tour). I ended up in the front row less than 50 feet from her.

She had a pair of tight black jeans that looked like they were spray painted on. She also ripped open her white blouse when she did "Black Cat". She was chocolatey delicious!

You are definitely way ahead in this****swinging contest. Date dependent as always. Since it has to be 60's up to early 70's otherwise, they were past their prime and it had gotten very commercial. Anything after 74 really from my reading of rock history.
