Yup, I had that same exact feeling at one point. The only thing to really do is play some Iron Maiden (I know you have it) prior/during the next post.

Bruce Dickinson is quite an interesting character. Apart from being a trainspotter, he is also a pilot.

Pixel and e, I just ordered "Number of the Beast" on Amazon yesterday. I need some metal company while recovering here at my parents' in PA.

lb, I could never stop. I can't stop posting - the same way I can't stop talking.

I worked at the Graffiti in Pittsburgh for a few months in the late 90s (owner was a huge dick I should add). The business office had the posters of every show, including the poster for the Pistols first ever US show to be held there. It was cancelled. Oh well.

i love me some milwaukee's best! i prefer the leaded as the light version is for pussies.

I remember the Milwaukee's best (The Beast, as everyone affectionately called it). Glad those days are long gone.

My first big show was the Moody Blues (father took me when I was 10), Stevie Ray Vaughn opened, although he was not solo yet.

Seen Pink Floyd, The Who twice, Stones, and countless Grateful Dead shows. Old, eh?

my dad saw the beatles in london. he was on a business trip with his father, and waliking down the street he bumped into the owner of the newsstand near his house, who was also in london for business, the business being touting beatles tickets for a sold out concert.

i should mention that both my father and his newsagent are from naples, italy.

my only claim to fame was seeing motorpsycho on their last gig with the original line up, but the drummer is now back in the band, so that's not true anymore. not that i complain, it's fucking good news.

my dad was lucky, too

He always has a story about how mind blowing it was to see folks like Led Zeppelin, Beatles, Doors, Hendrix, etc., when they were small (well, maybe not the Beatles).

It was pretty amazing timing that all those bands had reunion toors while I was in highschool (and could blow off school to hitch hike to some show somewhere). Ah, good times

My Dad said he saw all of these shows while at university in a rural area - Slippery Rock in PA. Bands would do college tours. So now I wonder what the equivalent is today. I remember Bad Religion doing this back in the 90's. College rock.

I am done with drunk posts. No one needs that morning-after stress. I have a hard enough time keeping my "mouth" shut drinking water.

I had been out watching the games - totally disappointing. Neither game was even close. 3 Irish Car Bombs, about 6 beers. Slept like a baby.
