    OH Andy Williams I would love to have seen in concert..... I preferred his music to FS...


    A female?....definitely Streisand.... but I couldn't possibly pay the money it costs for a ticket to her concerts these days..I could have a holiday on that kind of money.. :D

    At this point in my life, I don't think there's anyone I'd feel excited about seeing. When I lived in Long Beach, I wasn't far from The Forum downtown and, at least at that time, everyone played The Forum, and as long as I thought to buy them ahead of time, tickets were easy to come by. My favorite was the Grateful Dead. I was never a Deadhead and, while I liked some of their stuff, I don't think I owned a Grateful Dead album. As a concert band though, they couldn't be beat. One song drifted into the next and, except for a break about halfway through, it was hard to tell when they had moved from one song to another. Another group that I liked, in their time, was Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Surprisingly, since they were after my time, I took my son to see Yes at The Forum since he wasn't old enough that I wanted him to go by himself, and they were a very good concert band. Amusingly, along those lines, when he came home with the Pink Floyd album, The Wall, and was raving about them, he was shocked to learn that they were from my time, and that I had seen them in concert a couple of times. If you remember, they hadn't done much for quite some time before coming out with The Wall, so he saw them as a new group. I'm afraid that fact dampened his enthusiasm a little bit.

    @Ken Anderson
    Isn't it something when the younger ones think a re-recorded song is the 'original' - the shock on their faces when I tell them its from the 60s - FAB !

    I was a big fan of ELP...as well @Ken Anderson ...and just as an side to your comment about the Moody Blues, my ex Brother -in-law was one of their roadies back in the 70's..


    The last band I went to see Live was last year for my 60th birthday... (Mike and the Mechanics) which of course is Mike Rutherford from Genesis ..one of my favourite rock bands of all time...

    July, 1975, Caesar's Palace parking lot, huge summer monsoon storm, many vehicles were wrecked there. Note the headliner name on the big marquee sign, if you can make it out! Frank

    ELO, Queen, Deep Purple, BTO, Moody Blues, Heart, Styx, The Association, Earth-Wind & Fire, Kool & The Gang, Chicago, Travis Tritt, Brooks & Dunn, George Strait, Diamond Rio AND any of the Motown groups. Same for my wife. There are others, but this is enough.

    Oh, can't forget Jackie Wilson. Wife loves his song Lonely Teardrops.

    Wife and I do love our music!

    Brigitte Bardot! Especially as naked as she was ever presented! Wow!
