    Musicians/Groups You Wish You Caught Live but too late now...

    I ran this idea a few years back, but there are new members out and about here these days.

    While not an exhaustive list, I wish I could have seen them in their prime:
    1. Nirvana
    2. Gene Krupa with Glenn Miller
    3. Sunny Day Real Estate
    4. Hum
    The only important thing these days, is rhythm and melody. Rhythm...and melody.

    Led Zeppelin announced a 1980 tour that never happened, that would have been my first concert. Instead I saw Styx...not quite the same.

    I wish I could have seen Stevie Ray Vaughan live. And Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd.

    The band/group that made "white rabbit" while I was on acid. the good ****. I heard stories.
    And most likely several other bands from that era,k if i was on acid. the good ****.

    It has to be the good ****. Other than that I think I'm, "covered" so to speak. And i don't even do (class a) drugs.
    But given the opportunity and the setting I'm willing to travel back in time and do lots of everything, yeah just give me ****iong everything in large doses. and white rabbit band. I'll sort it out i promise. I'd like a heroic dose thank you.

    Not they won't come around again, but I had tickets to see Tool in a pretty small venue. I bought tix off of CL and they were fake. I got in anyway, just kept walking but my girlfriend got tagged. She told me to just stay in and go but, yeah right.

    They told us to go to the ticket booth and talk to them but the line was about 30 people deep with the same problem. Stub hub only for me from now on

    Tom Waits.
    Even if he decided to do a show these days there would be no way I could afford to attend.

    I saw him in the early 80's performing Ghost Riders with the Outlaws. An excellent performance but sadly it was before I had an appreciation for his art.

    Wish I would have seen The Smiths.

    I was fortunate in seeing SRV way, way back when he was opening for The Pretenders.

    There's a DVD out of his television show, if you haven't seen it, it's a must-buy. All sorts of excellent guests, and the sound quality is pretty damn good.

    This is the only legitimate reason we need time travel!! If I had a time machine I think the first stop would be The Beatles last gig playing live on the rooftop. The Queen at Wembley, The Ramones at CBGB, Nirvana at Reading, Nirvana live at some little grungy club in Seattle before they made it big, Zeppelin, The Who, The Doors etc etc.

    The only two legitimate missed opportunities I really regret was missing Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros when they were part of Big Day Out festival back in 2000 when I had no idea who they were (I've since become a big fan of Strummer and The Clash, but no way I'll be seeing them live now), and I wish I'd pushed harder to go see the Smashing Pumpkins on the Mellon Collie tour in 1996 as a 15 year old kid, none of my friends were allowed to go and mum wasn't keen on me going alone. I've seen the pumpkins several times since, but seeing the original line-up on that tour before it all turned to **** would have been epic.

    I'm a big Tool fan. Saw them @ the Molson Amphitheater for their 10,000 Days tour. One of my fave shows for sure.

    I'm adding A Perfect Circle to my list as well as Led Zeppelin. There are others I'm sure. Someone mentioned The Smiths; hells yeah.

    Hell yes. I was just watching the Queen Live in Montreal and Live Aid DVD the other day. Freddie Mercury has to be the greatest front man ever.

    Lots of other good suggestions in this thread, makes me sit here and imagine what it would have been like to see some of these bands.

    Jimi Hendrix.

    SRV

    Steely Dan

    Deep Purple.

    Lynyrd Skynyrd.

    Sublime

    GOB just dated herself with the GoGo's. I'd prefer the Bengals myself.

    Van Halen 1984 Tour at the Oakland Colosseum. My best friend had an extra ticket and my overprotective parents said no.

    Still very bitter about that one.

    I wish I seen Crank Bait. Unfortunately the lead singer died way too young. Found dead down by the river. Apparently he starved himself to death after a 104 hour fishing spree.

    Saw Steely Dan during the Pretzel Logic tour. One of the best shows I've seen. First concert I ever went to was Deep Purple around the time Made in Japan was recorded. They were on a bill with Fleetwood Mac and Rory Gallager. Nice intro to rock concerts.
