Thanks Mr. Big. As I said in my original post, Ive seen the Stones twice, but it has been a very long time. Im actually really looking forward to seeing them again, and am pretty sure this will be the last chance I get.

Hey, don't count yourself out QB, you're not that old... ;D


Too funny! And while Im not as old as Mick, Keith and company, Im still no spring chicken! So for whatever reason, time to see the Stones.

The whole scene has changed so much. The bands we grew up with were huge.
When I was young The Stones, The Who, Richie Blackmores Rainbow, Frampton, Tull, Boston, The Good Rats, Springsteen.....
my teen years were a crazy time to be young and into the music. All started with the older crew I surfed with taking me to Led Zeppelin at Madison Sq Garden when I was 13yo.

Fast forward to adult family years with a wife thats crowd averse and it was done.
A couple of years back and my come of age daughters got me to take them to some rock festivals, the new thing, 2-4 days of multiple bands and stages. Hearing a whole new slew of bands that are smaller but still rock. Different but cool.

Im excited to be back into it, though Im one of the few oldies, earplugged and sober.

This summer, no longer working, Im planning to hit a couple, PinkPop and BBK live.
And a band I stumbled upon in NY in the late 80s, Living Colour in a stand alone show in Manchester.

I'm playing at  my hometown's  summer celebration, and a couple of art faires.  Lots of fun.  Make a little less than Ed Sheeran though ;)

I am still stuck in my time too much. I saw the Eagles on the Hotel California tour and Fleetwood Mac on the Rumours tour. I went to a stadium concert with over 100,000 people (Dog Days Rock Fest in Atlanta) to see Aerosmith, Santana, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Mother's Finest and a few others. I saw Lynyrd Skynyrd perform songs from Street Survivor (as well as their prior hits) a couple of months before the plane crash. I saw Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Yes, ELP, Foreigner, Foghat, Robin Trower, Alvin Lee, The Kinks, AC/DC, Beach Boys, Chicago, Derringer, Bob Seger and others I am not remembering all in the space of maybe 3 years. And yeah, there is a reason there are more I can't remember...

I saw Cage the Elephant a few years ago with one of the kids and that was a good show but most of what I have seen or heard in the last few decades just doesn't do as much for me.

Dont know why Im not, my daughters maybe. My two brothers still listen to only music from their time. Although my concert going had stopped, I still stayed plugged into the new music scene. This started as an avid fan of WLIR when growing up in NY and these days it is tuning into college radio stations.

And yea, the warm haze of the memories is definitely clouded.

Whats that saying - If you remember the 60s then you didnt go through them? So while my memory may also be a bit cloudy, it was a great time to grow up. And there was some very, very good music. And like RideTheGlide, Im still very much into the music of my youth. Mostly from the 60s but also some 50s. I just dont think there is anything that compares to some of the music from that era.

But truthfully, music is such a personal thing and we all have different tastes. I should probably also clarify that I do like music beyond the 50s and 60s. I actually like a wide variety of music, but my passion is the older 50s and 60s. I have a pretty decent collection of older music (mostly 45s) and one of my treasures is a 1959 Seeburg Jukebox (and wallbox) that I play my 45's on.

As for concerts, Ive been going for as far back as I can remember. And am still going to this day. I love live music, but then I also like stage plays and most types of live performances.

I am not judging, just commenting on preference. I just love about all music.
From classical, blues and jazz of all the years to the pop, rock, hip-hop, reggae and rap from the 1950s on. I regularly listen to it all. My brothers only listen to and attend concerts of 70-80s music. They focus on one thing where I get my pleasusure from a much wider pallet. To each his own.

And the music of my youth, The Good Rats, I was streaming it the other day.

The Good Rats played a ton of venues at the Jersey shore.  One of my favorites was Papa Popa.  Very cool band for sure J, and lots of great memories.

......Pop version of Journey and they played 7 songs from the first 3 albums.  The last time I heard those songs live was at Winterland around 1975. ..........If you like "Old" Journey, don't miss this show.  If you can't go, google Neal Schon Journey Through Time.  There are  a lot of videos on line of them playing last year.
Yeah...I remember.....

Last time I saw the Stones was '06.
Boise....
Idaho.
Holy shit. What a show.

Two weeks ago, my wife and I went to Jackson Rancheria Casino on Northern California, to see Journey Live.  Not the Journey that has been seen and heard over the past 30 years, but almost the original Journey. Neal Schon and Gregg Rolie, the original founding members of Journey, got together last year and did a single concert with 3 other very talented musicians.  That concert was named
If you like "Old" Journey, don't miss this show.  If you can't go, google Neal Schon Journey Through Time.  There are  a lot of videos on line of them playing last year.
Oh yeah....
