Oh... and another: Prince (yes, my tastes vary!)
Favourite Live Performer:
I've only been to three live performances.
James Taylor (Millennium concert)
The Judds (reunion concert, Raleigh NC)
Reba McEntire(Fancy, was way cool)
Of these three, the Judds were my favorite. I just love their song, Grandpa, reminds me of my own grandfather. I was forth row center and even got to shake Wy's hand and say hello's.

jan! you saw lou reed?!?!? i'm so jealous
Angus Young live is extremely orgasmic and will screw with your equalibrium the rest of the night. I will never forget AC/DC in concert that night in Irvine. I had a total out of body experience that night.
Bands still alive: Pink Floyd, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.
Jim Morrison and the Doors, I have a copy of the first digital recorded concert from the Hollywood Bowl in 1968, when they were at their peek. Bands refused to sign up with them in the early days because the Doors blew everyone away.
We've seen Neil Diamond quite a few times, but the last time he wasn't that great. Sad to see him really losing his voice. But he puts on a great show, and has a fantastic orchestra. I love his songs. After an hour of struggling with his voice, it isn't too bad, and is clearer. At first, though, it is real gravelly. In the old days, he wasn't like that. Everyone ages, I guess.
Also Reba McEntire. She had a broken leg when we saw her at the Tacoma Dome back in '96 I think. But it was still a great show. She had a moveable chair, on a conveyor type thing, and was all over that stage anyway.
Marilyn (a.k.a. Mulan)

I saw the Ventures at the Palimino
in the Valley.
Saw Van Helen before they hit it
big at the Golden Bear in
Its nice to be in the first few rows
of a live performance.
I once went to a David Essex concert. But in my defence I was only about 10 and too young to know any better.
There are loads of people I'd love to see, but thats the only concert I've ever been too
Although we did go to see Les Miserables which was brilliant.
Edited for my hopeless spelling
U2 (The Joshua Tree tour was awesome)
Bruce Springsteen (Not the greatest singer but the Born in the USA tour was powerful)
Gordan Lightfoot....NOT!!!! :)
RUSH was a pretty good concert. Would have loved to see the Grateful Dead before the demise of Garcia, but alas...are we sticking to Musical performers on this? Oh, I saw John Michael Talbot on the religious music side, that was pretty cool too.
