God, I wish I could've seen ELP. Sighs.

He's freakin amazing!
Must have been 2003 or 2004 in copenhagen.

He's amazing onstage, agreed. The best part, though, is the contrast when you talk to him and he's not in performer mode. Incredibly soft-spoken, super-polite, and more than anything else wants to talk about golf.

I'm afraid that I can't say that I've ever been as "close" to the scene as some of you guys here, but over the years I've had the privilege to see and hear:

Crosby & Nash (after the CSN&Y breakup, before the reunion, after the etc.)
Gordon Lightfoot
Jethro Tull (in the 80's) and Ian Anderson (just last year - he is still amazing)
Simon & Garfunkel (not nearly as good live as they were in the studio, apparently)
Joan Armatrading (at Carnegie Mellon in the late 70's)
Eric Clapton (absolutely phenomenal)
Sting (OK, but slightly disappointing)
Peter, Paul and Mary (OK, I'm REALLY dating myself here...)
Garbage (surprisingly good live)

How cool. Did you have much to do with them or did they keep to themselves?


I was driving Ron Woods and his family, they were very interactive and respectful, I also drove the whole crew except for Kick to the concert and back.

One of those wow experiences...lol TY for asking

Rocco -

Ian Anderson is amazing. He has the energy of a 20 year old. His voice also seems to have held up well with time. And his music is still as different from anthing else as it ever was.

I generally hesitate when old rockers come to town - too much chance to be disappointed. I'd rather have the "original" stay fresh in my mind. But I made an exception here, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Love seeing live music, among others have been to Radiohead, Franz Ferdinand, Elbow, Jarvis Cocker, Blur in the past year! Seeing Muse this November (yay!).

All of the music is very sexy to write to as well and Alex Kapranos (lead singer of Franz Ferdinand) has been very inspiring lately!

Hello, btw, am new :D Just entered a story in the first time competition.

Now I'm wondering -- Is there already a thread on sexy-music-to-write-to playlists??

Pearl Jam- before they got big *awesome* one of the best nights of my youth.
REM- sonic youth opened and they sucked live, REM was having a bad night. They were still good, but messed up on the lyrics and then berated the audience for applauding. Kind of douchy.
Dee-lite- super fun small show. Broke my platform heel I danced so hard.
MC Hammer- don't judge me, I WAS an 80s girl. Surprisingly good. I have never seen another human with moves like that or that kind of stamina. He humped the stage for hours.
White Stripes- jack white kills on guitar and I would have his baby.
Muse- always a fun gig every time. The pipes on that man!
Dave Matthews band- best part was I met a whole huge SUV full of little people. Little people love Dave.
Barry manilow-such a great show. I love me some Manilow baby.
