I saw the following:
Dio (twice)
Johnny Winter (3 times)
Guns N' Roses (Matt Sorum era, 92)
Pantera (Far Beyond Driven tour)
Leonard Cohen
Motörhead (several times)
AC/DC twice
Soundgarden
Kiss with original line up (Ace + Peter)
BB King, like 4 times at least.

I saw also Megadeth with Marty Friedman on guitar, amazing guy, but I think this one probably doesn't count...

Yeah on marty. Seen him too with megadeath while on tour with Metallica and suïcidal tendencies.
So many i cant name them either it was before my time i was too young or too broke or thought they would return again.Led Zep. Nirvana came to Calgary in March 1991 but i was 11 [ at the westwinds club ] but most people who were of age said they were there were not. Mudhoney came in 2001 and i could have seen them. Not guitar but Kraftwerk came by and i was broke, but i did see Judas Priest and rob still sounds like a chipmunk on steroids so that was cool.

Mountain - around '72? at the Oklahoma City Civic Center. Saw Leslie and Corky later in West, Bruce & Laing at the same venue...not even close.

Stevie Ray - The Cotton Bowl in Dallas, in '89, opening for The Who. This is when The Who toured with about two dozen people on stage.......SRV blew them away. And I'm like the world's biggest Who fan!

(I had seen The Who in '76 with Keith Moon and John Entwhistle still on this earth. I read someone said "like a religious experience" earlier in this thread...real close!)

Forgot the Dixie Dreggs. Tightest band I've ever seen.

I'll just list the band I only saw once that had one of the most influential guitarist for me, UFO

I saw them around the time Strangers in the Night was recorded before Michael Schenker had left the band, he was in his prime then and the entire band was in sync like few I've ever seen live...brilliant performance from them all and one I'll never forget.

Saw Pink Floyd at the Silverdome. I think that was 1989 or 90. I saw Nirvana at St Andrew's Hall in 1991. Great show.
