I remember my fist "date" It was with Sarah Konovalski and my dad took us to an Elton John concert. This was like between 1970 and 72. I was so pumped! Then there was Yes with Rick Wakeman. Roundabout, Fish, Six wives of Henry the Eigth. Led Zepplin with John Bohnam. Then there was the Moody Blues. And so many more that I can't remember. But my first concert was in 1965 or so, saw the Beatles. I'd tell you I heard them, but there were so many screaming girls I couldn't hear a freaking thing.
It used to be that you could get a ticket for a couple hours work. Nowdays it's a few days! I remember the first ZZ Top Barn Dance and BarBQue with Willie Nelson. I asked my boss for the day off. He said what if I said no? I told him I'd quit. He said OK so I did. I took a little hippie girl, we couldn't find a hotel room in Austin so we slept in my sleeping bag in a roadside stop.
I've been to some great concerts, how about you? I'd love to hear about them...
This is for you Kagan!
