    Bob Dylan and Santana--TOGETHER. It was such a groovy time, even the cops were passing joints!

    My fave was a tie between the Pixies and The Violent Femmes...

    I also saw Iron Maiden / Twisted sister when I was 14. It was hilarious!

    Stevie Ray Vaughan - Wichita Falls, Tx. summer 1987 I think.

    Rolling Stones, ZZ Top, Fab. T-Birds - Halloween 1981 - Dallas

    Wish I'd seen:
    Had tickets to see the Stones with Van Halen as opening act (their first tour) in N.O. LA. 1978. My car got wrecked so couldn't make it. No one wanted to buy the tickets either. ;(

    others: too many to list!

    Wish I had seen - Pink Floyd, Dexter Gordon, and Van "The Man" Morrison.

    Worst Show - Bob Dylan (all smacked up circa 1978), as well as Johnny Winters, Dr. John, and Leon Russell all in the same condition (various years).

    Torn between two favorites: Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue in 1975 and Harry Chapin at Smith College in 1977. Both were incredible evenings.
