I should have added REM to my list. At their peak they were awesome.

I left The Beatles off purely because of all the screaming girlies. I went to see T.Rex at the point they stopped being a hippy duo and turned into and electric teenybopper combo. Ride A White Swan and Get It On had turned them into a big act and I was swamped with screaming prepubescent girls. Rolf Harris would have loved it!

Hendrix

Johnny Cash

The Clash

Sonic Youth

Fugazi

The Slits

Velvet Underground

I was fortunate enough to see Arthur Lee with a backing band back in the early 2000’s, but would have loved to have seen the original Love lineup as well.


#23

Just Nirvana and Bob Marley for me.


#24

I wish’d I’d seen more Slits growing up, too Won Ton.

Much discussion on Arthur Lee and Love in the Cover us in Glory thread. You’re amongst friends.

+1 for Cash and the Clash too.

Have seen Morrisey a few times, but yes that’s another great shout, Goatster.

Saw them at Poole Arts Centre, on the “Meat is Murder” tour in 1985. Finished with the title track and left the stage to the deafening sound of the abbatoir.

A new band called James supported them and I have seen them over 20 times since.

Was lucky enough to see Queen at Knebworth on the Live Magic Tour in '86.

Would loved to have seen Deep Purple live back in the day (wouldn’t go to see them now if you paid me).

Have always wanted to see Bowie live, but fear I may have missed the boat on seeing a worthwhile gig. Glass Spider TOur would’ve been great.

Have seen The Who, but would’ve loved to have seen them while Moon was still alive. Same goes for AC/DC, Bon Scott, yes - Brian Johnson, no thank you.

Remembered another one that I was too young for - Roxy Music, circa 1972, with Eno.

I saw The Who with Moon and without but they really should pack it in now. Without Entwhistle and Moon thet just arent The Who anymore. Saw Deep Purple in 1972 and the were awesome. Saw them again after Ritchie Blackmore had left and Tommy Bolin was on guitar and they were awful. Didnt think much of Black Sabbath live but there was a band called The Groundhogs that never made it big but were really good. Wasnt a great Zeppelin fan but saw that at Earls Court around 1974 and they were impressive live. Same with Bowie. Liked some of his stuff but wasnt fussed about seeing him. Was working at Glastobury in 2000 I think when he was headlining and he was really good. I have been lucky enough to see most of the bands/artists I like and have rarely been disappointed. Re King Crimson, I saw Greg Lake on tour a few years back in Tunbridge Wells. The place was less than half full but he put on a great show and included some tracks from In The Court of the Crimson King which were out of this world. Interested to hear that KC are touring again and will try and get to see them. Three drummers nowdays apparently.

I saw The Groundhogs about 20-25 years ago at the Tower Arts Centre in Winchester after a friend of mine introduced me to their music. T.S.McPhee was excellent.

Have seen Black Sabbath live several times and different incarnations of the band, but never with Ozzy. Ronnie Dio was my favourite Sabbath singer but there was a great line-up that had Neil Murray (Whitesnake) and Cozy Powell (Rainbow) and a great vocalist called Tony Martin.

That Sabbath line up sounds like Triggers broom from Only Fools And Horses! Was there an original member left in the band?


#35

Stevie Ray Vaughan. Wish I’d seen him live.

Although he died ages ago, I would have loved to have seen Freddie King.

Led Zeppelin would have been superb too, i’m sure.


#36

Gary Moore

Never saw him live and still gutted he has gone


#37

Tony “Tough Shit” McPhee. One of the most underated guitarists ever.


#38

I saw TS at the old Concorde…the Groundhogs were backing John Lee Hooker. I was so close to JLH he splashed me throughout the gig :wink:


#39

Wasn’t sure where to put this but as I never saw either band I thought it should live here.


#40

Buddy Holly and The Everly Brothers…

I can still distinctly remember hearing Cathy’s Clown for the first time…drifting across the garden on a summer Sunday afternoon…stopped me dead in my tracks.
