time of my life
Looks like I'm taking requests.
M wants to know my concert experiences.
Well, I've seen over 300 bands, but I can narrow down some of the high/low lights for you.
First concert: David Cassidy, Nassau Coliseum
First real concert: Kiss, Nassau Coliseum
Worst concert: Oh, so many. So, so many. Saw Bachman Turner Overdrive and fell asleep. Saw the "new" Clash about half an hour after I slammed my finger in a glass cassete case sliding door at Record World. Still can't decide if the pain of the smashed finger or the pain of the "new" Clash was worse. Coal Chamber - just a horrible live band.
Best: Hands down, Nick Cave last year. Billy Bragg opening for INXS was spectacular. Incubus, first time I saw them. Lou Reed. The Alarm in the pouring rain. Little Feat. Ice Cube. Blue Oyster Cult. Emerson Lake & Palmer. Type O Negative.
Any more post requests?
