I grew up hearing my parents playing Jefferson Airplane.I think I knew all their songs by the time I was 13. The reunion tour in 88 or 89 I think was fantastic. I never thought I'd even get a chance to see them. I'm sooo glad I did. And, the Pink Floyd tours in the 80's. ANY show!
Orpheum, Boston 11/16/99. He closed but co-headlined with Lucinda Williams, and both sets smoked. Richard's solos were unbelievable on "Hard on Me."
Lupo's, Providence 7/23/03. Maybe 400 people there, this one showed up as his Live in Providence DVD, available on his website. We keep throwing around guitarist's names in theses forums (mostly, though, as who should "replace" Jerry which is a fun but fruitless debate)....this guy is my favorite guitarist. Actually, my favorite singer-songwriter-guitarist.
Listened to a live "Jennie" on the morning commute, one of my favorite song-opening lines:
"Trouble becomes you, it cuts you down to my size."
Jackie Greene came to free venue in the little city of Driggs, ID at a festival called Music on Main which is a free concert every Thursday in the summers in Driggs, ID. and man Jackie Greene just played so well. it was exactly what this little town needed. This town consists mainly of bluegrass music which is also great but once in a while it is really nice to hear some nice rock like this. he mixed the genre of music so well, with some faster paced songs using the electric guitar to more slower songs with his big ol' Gibson acoustic guitar, he did so well even coverd some Dead tunes really well and got that crowd young and old non-stop dancing. Great show,
Here's my early recommendation to catch one or both of these sure-to-be scorchin' shows.
12/31 is available on-line to view and listen!!! Yonder Mtn String Band is on the ticket too!
Will Jimmy Herring be chipping-in on lead guitar for the Dead tour come April 2009?
Maybe YOU had to much to fast, HE just came to play guitar...... Meadowlandschris
Bruce at the bottom line-76------ ALL bromberg at the bottom line.... The byrds 20th anniversary?? show at the stone pony in 83??? (Rick Danco, Blondie Champlain, Roger Mguinn, Chris Hillman)( I had a tape of this show from a shit recorder placed between two sets of speakers that was terrible- and like most other tapes, it came and it went--Dead at berkley in june 85--Dead in austin-86---Garcia band at music mountain (S. Fallsburg, NY--Hung and partied with jerry at my then girlfriends cousins house where jerry stayed for the week before starting tour at music mountain---HighLite of my life)AND the show was the funkiest I ever heard jerry play( I like to think it was my live Marley shows we were listening to).............
Duan Duan puts on a pretty good show

What's up guys, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up about the inaugural Chicago Bluegrass & Blues festival, this 11/22 at the historic Congress Theater, all benefiting the Saving Tiny Hearts Societies fight against the country's most common birth defect.
The first 10 folks that hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org will get a pair of tickets mailed to them. We're excited for you to help us spread the word about this righteous endeavor

..." one man gone and another to go..." During Soul Kitchen, Jim morrison shouted out he'd like another cigarette, and good golly, packs of smokes began FLYING up onstage. Setlist was rather short:
Cleveland Public Auditorium
Break On Through
Back Door Man
Five To One
When The Music's Over
Vast Radiant Beach
The Royal Sperm
When The Music's Over
Light My Fire
Jim was dressed in tight black leather pants and was animated throughout the show, not quite as much as Mick Jagger, but still very captivating.
