    Perfect concert

    So...I'm sitting at my desk this morning waiting on reports to finish. Start cruising you tube looking for some tunes. Then I get the idea....who would make the best concert you can imagine....one that would truly rock and you would remember it till the day you kick the bucket.

    Me: The Cult opening for Tesla. Both of these bands rock like very few. Tesla is just incredible. Both bands are more about the music rather than putting on some silly show like so many do these days. This is what rock should be, imo.

    Grand Funk Railroad in 1972 at the Coliseum in Seattle. It was like riding in a convertible 'vette at 200 mph for two hours. I will never forget that show. Santana just a couple of months later was up there, too.

    BB King opening for Pink Floyd

    The only reason I want BB King to open is because when PF is done, I'll be to mellowed out for BB King.

    If dead people are allowed...you know like "all-time".....

    Then it would be:
    The Allman Brothers (including Duane) with special guest BB King

    opening for Pink Floyd

    That'd be a good one. I just saw that Flogging Molly is playing Red Rocks in September. I might have to catch that one if possible.

    I saw that too. I saw them in 2002 I think. They played in a park in FoCo. 500 fans all singing along, 1 day after Johnny Cash died. That was one helluva show.

    Queen opening for David Bowie.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    A few years back I saw Lynyrd Skynyrd opening for ZZ Top.

    I would prefer pre-plane crash Skynyrd, but it was one rocking evening.

    Almost anyone opening followed by Pink Floyd... I never did see them, although I have seen Roger Waters. BB King would be a great opener.

    Also, in a mellow mood, I would love to see a concert of some of the crooners... Maybe Frank Sinatra opening for Nat King Cole... But, I suspect Frank wouldn't open for anybody.

    I saw Prince a few years ago...he didn't need an opening band.

    Warrant opened up for Alice Cooper about a year ago...that was an amazing show.

    I'd like to see Jack Johnson open up for Barenaked Ladies.

    Ooooh! Jamiroquai head off for Stevie Wonder!

    I've never seen Queen, but I have seen David Bowie....it was one of the most amazing concerts I've ever seen. I think he did about 5 or 6 encores. He played for about 2 1/2-3 hours total.

    Seeing Douglas Adams jam with Pink Floyd.
    It happened, and I wish I had been there.

    It's not the bullet with my name on it that worries me. It's the one that says, "To whom it may concern".

    Really? I didn't even know he was a musician. What instrument did he play?

    I've seen a few really good ones back in my college days....haven't been to a show in many years.

    Some of the great shows I've seen were by Rush, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Ozzy and Ted Nugent.

    The best single performance I've ever seent though was when I was standing against the stage at a Joe Satriani show. That joker flat out rocked the house.

    The best opening performance I ever saw was when Queensryche opened...they played the Operation Mindcrime disc song for song. They were very tight.

    One guy that really impressed me was Hank Williams Jr. He played a number of instruments and did outstanding on each. It was a great show.

    Emmylou Harris and The Hot Band* — Ramones — Elvis Costello and the Attractions — The Chieftans.

    I'd have them draw straws for playing order.

    Get the local symphony orchestra in to play backup on some of the tunes, and for the follow-on fireworks show.

    George Clinton. Didn't need an opener. Small college venue. My friends and I got way too drained and left 4 hours into the show that was still going...

    Queen opening for Bowie would be a great one too.
