Heres a laugh. In 1978 I was 16. Big fan of the Rolling Stones. They were scheduled to play near me in Chicago. I told my best friend "Weve gotta see the Stones. Theyre in their 30s now getting old and this will probably be the last time they tour" LOL was that the understatment or what! Great show. Looking back Jagger WAS "young" and hyper.

Not so funny, in 1980ish my friend and I had Led Zep tickets. J. Bonham passed. Never saw them.

Then there was Heart in 1980s. My friend Jim's FAVORITE band. As Mott the Hoopel opened Jim slumped over. Took him to Medical. He was out of it.  Too much of something ,but ok. I asked if he could stay there. They said NO take him home. I gathered my other friends and went home. Never saw Heart.

The wife and I, have tickets for Thursday (tomorrow) of the 4 day CaliRoots festival..
It gets a little expensive to stay in Monterey during the Memorial Day weekend, especially when there are 45 bands in town for the festival..

So 1 day, is about all we are willing to spend this time around.
There is about 10 bands playing Thursday, but we are only trying to see 4 of them
Fortunate Youth
Stephen Marley
Dirty Heads

No Led Zeppelin unfortunately.

Most impressive one was This Will Destroy You with a lot of distortion guitar in a small pub.

I went to see a Wishbone Ash tribute band last week. I call it a tribute band because only one original member remains. That said, they were very good and did all of the songs on the album Argus to start with.
Next up will be a acoustic Hot Tuna concert in June. I saw the Airplane a couple times and Hot Tuna as well back in the 1970's
For those that mentioned Led Zep I was fortunate to see them 4 times. First show was their second stop on their first American tour. I knew right away they were special.

In 1965 I took my girlfriend to the Hollywood Bowl to see Joan Baez perform. Towards the end of her performance she stopped and waved someone in from the side of the stage. Some guy came out who she introduced as Bob Dylan. I had never heard of him and his singing didn't sound like any kind of "singing" I had ever heard before. I even apologized to my girlfriend for the lousy end of the Baez concert.

The link below has a footnote indicating the Bob Dylan had opened for Joan Baez at the Hollywood Bowl in 1963. I specifically recall that Bob Dylan came on towards the end of the concert so I am quite sure that it was the 1965 concert that I attended.
