No Stevie Wonder? Poop. But I've been livin' for the city all this time!

I did get to see INXS in 1991 and Bone Machine and I saw the Fabulous Thunderbirds in 2002.

the Fabulous T-birds, J. Geils, Slim Harpo, The Blues Bros., Kim Wilson, Paul Rodgers..... sounds like an excellent iPod playlist to me!

Lessee, who on this list have I seen live:

Fab T-Birds (lots and lots of times, have seen them with Jimmie Vaughan and with Duke Robillard)

Lou Ann Barton (twice, once with Angela Strehli)

Um, comments are back on at Dooce.
Please stop by, as they are nothing without you.

Lets see....live, I have seen the Fabulous T-Birds, Kim Wilson (with Stevie Ray Vaughan at a benefit concert just before Stevies death), J. Geils Band (yes, I am an old geezer), INXS (took four teenagers to Indy for that one), the Blues Brothers (with Jim, not John), and Paul Rodgers. One of the very few good things about South Bend, culturaly speaking, is that we have a very vibrant blues and folk scene here. Too bad the same can't be said for pop, rock, jazz or classical.

Yay Dooce comments! I'd almost given up hope. Aaaaaaah.

Bear, I forgot to list J Geils, who I have seen once (Jim has seen them four or five times, most back in the "olden days").

I've seen J Geils band complete, and I've seen J Geils perform with Magic Dick in their Bluestime project.
Jim has seen SRV, but not me. We just passed up the chance to see him at Pine Knob a couple of months before he died (I had to work or something totally unimportant like that). Aaaaaaagh!

Hell, missed another one. I've seen John Mayall and whatever current version of the Bluesbreakers, too.

You've just been to so many concerts it's hard to remember them all. You need to start a spreadsheet. :-)

Did you get today off? This is the last Good Friday my company is taking off. Next year we get a floating holiday to use whenever instead.

Since I'm home I think I'll watch GH.

Squirl, realtime GH for me too! Woohoo!

We get a half day on good Friday so I always take the other half as vacation. I just love a three-day weekend.

I just hope I'm the first to make some kinda smart ass remark about a Magic Dick and a Pine Knob being in the same post. It's like the boys of the Who found the power of Altoids or something.

Hey GWB?? Was your Indy INXS show the one in 1991? If so, that's the one I was at, howdy neighbor!

Neil Young plays a mean harmonica. Where the hell is Neil Young?
