    I hardly ever get to see comedians or concerts. Besides the 2006 Virus tour, the only comedian I've seen of any note is Vos. And I haven't been to a concert in 5 years. :(

    I have seen Sabbath and Maiden though, which is pretty damn cool.

    My first concert was a Pennywise show I couldn't get into (sold out) in 1994. My last one was Dinosaur Jr about a year ago. Tho only other concerts I ever went to, I could count two hands. As for DJ's I have seen, jesus. Probably hundreds if not thousands. And for comedians, only a couple also. Lewis Black, and Bill Burr.

    Well, let's just say my parents where hippies, and the first concert I remember Was Led Zep at the Coliseum in the mid 70's. I also was a roadie for about a year. I must have attended over 300 concerts in my life. My favorites include: Stone Temple Pilots, Metallica, Billy Joel, and Red Hot Chilli peppers.

    Ronnie brought up Tom Petty who is obviously one of my favs this week since he's doing the Superbowl. They also talked about how they HATE when rock stars force the audience to sing parts of the song. He sort of attributed the gimmick to Petty doing Breakdown live way back when. I know I'm biased, but I LOOOOVE when he does that.

    Here's a clip from one of the first concerts I ever attended, The 1982 US Festival in San Bernadino, CA. I had squirmed up to the front right (stage left) and could see backstage all the goings on. Before his set, and/or even during one of the songs, Petty was drinking Jack Daniels straight out of the bottle and was pretty hammered when he sang this song:

    - Billy Joel (1998), at the Syracuse Carrier Dome
    - Aerosmith, with Candlebox, Nine Lives Tour, at the Albany Pepsi Arena
    - U2 at the Mellon Arena in Pittsburgh
    - Warped Tour 2002, in Rochester, NY (included Bad Religion and the Floggin' Mollys)
    - Pearl Jam on the Binaural Tour at the Post-Gazette Pavilion near Pittsburgh
    - Dave Matthews Band, '01, Buffalo Bills Stadium
    - Rascal Flatts in Lexington, Kentucky (ex-girlfriend dragged me there and I hated it)
    - John Mayer at Murray State, Kentucky
