As I continue this blog and reminisce about the many Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band shows I saw (well not that many compared to some, but 23 in all), I can't help but think of the many other bands I've seen over the years. My junior year in high school through college was when I went to the most concerts. I've compiled a list below of the major headlining bands I've seen over the years. This of course doesn't count opening acts or smaller, more unknown bands. Still a decent list I think. Basically, if a 'classic rock' band came through the DC area from 1987-1994, I saw them. Well here's the list, the number in parentheses is the number of times I saw the band:
AerosmithI can't say that I've seen too many concerts recently. The sorry state of the music business, combined with raising a young family has been a bit prohibitive. Oh well, at least I have the memories (and slight hearing loss) to show for several years of seeing and hearing some of the greatest live rock bands ever.
Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman & Howe
Huey Lewis & The News
Little Feat (3)
Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Pink Floyd (3)
The Eagles (2)
