    Im with poncho on sly and the family stone would be what id want to have seen the most. With sly flying straight of course. When i met larry graham i lost my shit and ive met hundreds of famous people. He was a big deal to me.


    I got to see a great band several times before they broke up called groundscore and i wish i would have found their music much earlier

    CoP opened up the only Alice in Chains show I've seen. The bill was Circus of Power, Masters of Reality, and AiC. We left feeling we had been brutalized.

    Must've been 88 or probably 89

    My memory fails me. They were touring on the EP

    It was some local band?MLB and Dogs D'Amour who were awesome.

    Wood died before the album (Apple came out) I was at a Cult show (in Toledo) the day wood died. Astbury announced it from the stage.

    I saw MLB at this rock bar in Toledo on one of there Mon night Rock nights for $1.04.

    WE played there a few years later with Alice in Chains.

    Van Halen in 1978, never saw them through the Hagar years. The new Van Halen I do not wish to see, I would prefer to live in a World with their albums up to 1984
