    Felt kinda bad for Bob, but he was also a giant dick head especially when he was drunk.

    Haven't been to a ton of concerts in my life. Two stand out more than the rest though. The first was Alabama in Raleigh NC when I was in HS. The concert was okay but holy shit there were tons of hot chicks at that concert. I ****ed one of the girls later that night. Second was Tom Petty in Little Rock a couple of weeks before he died.

    Great story, Jimbo. Glad you got to share such a good moment with your mom. I saw the Eagles with my uncle, and instantly was hooked. I listen to them at night a lot, when I cannot sleep. Them, and my dudes---The mutherfkin Bee Gee's..:D

    I saw Pearl Jam In the early 90’s. Haven’t seen them since but I’m not sure I’ll ever forget it. Crazy scene!

    I echo what you and schooner said. Concerts/live music of all types is the best.

    Oh, the Eagles.
    So, sometime around 2013 some friends said they had tickets for the Eagles in Indy. So, I ask my wife if she wants to go see the Eagles. She says, “No, it seems like a waste of money.” I’m surprised cause she loves concerts but decide, whatever.

    So, the day of the show comes (which we’ve long forgotten about) and she sees our friends post on FB that they are on their way to Indy for the Eagles concert. My wife says, “Omg! I thought you meant the Eagles football team?!?!?” As if I’ve ever fvcking said “Go Eagles!” in my life. I could’ve killed her. Ha.

    Anyway, a year later, Glenn Frey dies.

    That was the Eagles show I saw. Very happy I went for the reasoning you end with.

    Damn man! What an opportunity Laughing

    So sad about Glenn. The one thing I felt like my show was missing. But it didn’t matter considering the circumstances. That said, Glenn’s son was damn good, and it didn’t hurt they look like twins.

    I love Joe Walsh from the eagles. His solo stuff was kick ass.

    Two immediately come to mind. David Gilmour at MSG and the Black Keys. Both were fantastic.

    Metallica circa 1998 in Minneapolis, MN. I was 18/19 and grew up pretty conservative, so the experience was especially memorable because: 1) I'm pretty sure I got high from all the pot smoke by our nose bleed seats in the Target Center (upper deck was like sitting in a cloud, all we could see were the pyrotechnics); 2) a dude spilled a beer all over me and bought me one to make up for it; and 3) we got pulled over on the way home because my friend's vehicle resembled that from a hit and run. Metallic is a great show, and I think that one also had Kid Rock (in his Bwadadadaa days and not his... current iteration) opening.

    Anyway, my friend had been told his whole life by his southern mom that if he ever got pulled over to get out of the car and approach the cop, so he put that plan into action. It's 1:00 am on a highway in MN farm country and the cops do not take kindly to that, so the cops pulled guns, put my friend on the ground roughly, and spent about 45 minutes grilling him. After about 45 minutes, multiple rounds of statements, and an observation that I smelled like beer (I thought that I would get arrested), the cops heard over their radio that the real hit and run driver was caught and they let us go. This being before cell phones were in wide use, my parents were very worried, and it didn't help that their son arrived home at 2:30 am smelling like beer and telling tales of being in police custody.

    Best time I ever had at a concert was also the worst music I ever heard at a concert. Grateful Dead last concert ever, 1994 Soldier Field. Music was beyond terrible as Jerry Garcia was clearly on his last legs, but i was on 4 hits of acid and had the time of my life.

    me and the GF at the time bought 2 hits in the parking lot, took them, and then 20 minutes later decided they weren't working and bought 2 more. Spoiler: THEY ALL WORKED.

    Lol, I saw the dead post Garcia, and the first thirty something minutes into the show...I thought they were still tuning.

    Pink Floyd at Vanderbilt Stadium in '94. It was ridiculous. Back then we went to concerts all the time but nothing ever came close to that one.

    Springsteen in Tallahassee, ‘84 or ‘85. 4 hours non-stop. Right before Christmas. Broke local law and went past midnight. Gallon jug of beer.

    I've seen Bruce about 30x, and most of them either in The Pit, or non-Pit GA whenever I didn't get drawn in the lottery for The Pit. Two most recent shows were The River Tour from 2016 when I was in GA (floor standing behind the Pit) at the YUM,and then actually had seats for the show at Auburn Hills, outside Detroit...

    I've been going to concerts for close to 50 yrs,and I've seen most of the Greats. Stones,Who,every variation of CSN&Y, The Dead, The Band,Santana,Eagles,Beach Boys,Traffic, as well as seeing people like Tom Morello,Bob Seger,John Fogerty, Eddie Vedder and Neil playing with Bruce.

    There is nothing like a Springsteen show, esp somewhere where the fans are crazy like Italy, Sweden or like this video from Barcelona, back in 2002...

    So you’ve seen Springsteen throughout several decades? Think he’s still worth seeing?

    I’ve wanted to go to a Springsteen show, but I’ve assumed that it would be nothing like a show from the 80s.
