    I've seen Better Than Ezra several times and they do put on a very good live show. They're a lot of fun. Very nice guys too (I've met them a few times).

    Every time I see Clutch they're always amazing so I'd probably have to go with them. Gigantour 2006 with Megadeth, Opeth, Arch Enemy, Overkill, and Lamb of God is a close second though.

    I would have loved to seen him perform! So jealous Ashee!

    Guster-I've seen them like 4 or 5 times in concert and everytime I just stand there thinking "wow..." And seeing Brian Rosenworcel (drool) beat the bongos with his hands until they're bloody makes me wish I was that passionate about something.

    When John Mayer first released "Room for Squares" I got tickets 2 nights in a row to his concerts. The 2nd one in San Diego I was 6th row center and during "Your Body's a Wonderland" he looked at me the entire time. It was awesome. He probably does that to some random girl at every show... but still!

    Lilith Fair 1998-first real concert and it was so much fun. It celebrated girls and being proud of being a woman.

    U2 Zoo TV tour
    I really wanted to see this tour. Tried to get someone to go with me to the Detroit show but no one wanted (losers). Turned out Bono bought pizza for the ENTIRE crowd that night.

    Re: Best concert you've ever been to?

    I'll cast another vote for Depeche Mode's 1988 Concert for the Masses at the Rose Bowl. It's not just because I was on the radio talking to the band when they announced the gig. It wasn't just the lightning show that had some synchronicity to it. It's not the food fight, which we watched turn from a two-man battle right below us into an entire stadium chucking everything that could leave their hands in any direction but up. It was Wire, Thomas Dolby and OMD warming us up. It was the biggest and best fan ending ever to "Everything Counts." It was the Rose Bowl. It was Depeche Mode at their peak, just one record removed from Black Celebration. It was everything.

    A close second: the 1997 KROQ Weenie Roast at Irvine Meadows. The Cure, The Offspring, The Chemical Brothers, Oasis, the Foo Fighters, Blue, Echo & the Bunnymen, Radiohead, Third Eye Blind, Reel Big Fish, the Wallflowers, Social Distortion, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Squirrel Nut Zippers and Save Ferris. That includes four bands I would and did see headlining at other shows, and another worthy of a night at the top of the bill. The only bad part was the Offspring being jerks and encouraging people to throw stuff. Rumor was that they were banned for life at KROQ shows, but that rumor must be wrong, given the 2008 WR lineup.

    A close third: 1998 KROQ Almost Acoustic XMas (Night 2): Depeche Mode, Billy Corgan, Garbage, Brian Setzer Orchestra, Goo Goo Dolls, Cake, Everlast, Semisonic, Soul Coughing. That's six artists I would have paid to see headlining.

    You should have gone. My aunt toured with U2 on the Joshua Tree Tour, and told me not to miss the Zoo TV tour... So I didn't

    THe Genesis show was great, and saw it two nights in a row at the Forum in L.A., that's when I realized that the show is the same note for note, joke for joke every night (shame really) even the Webley Stadium Laser Disc I got later was note for note the same.

    People I had dinner with (but didn't sing) that I can add to the list
    Elton John
    Madonna

    Re: Best concert you've ever been to?

    Rolling Stones, MGM Grand Garden, Las Vegas, 1994 - Mick and the boys came back to Vegas for the first time in decades and managed to cram all the bells and whistles from the otherwise outdoor Voodoo Lounge tour into an indoor arena. Jagger got younger as the night wore on. Keith Richards looked like death from start to finish. They played almost all their hits in an amazing show.

    Simon and Garfunkel, MGM Grand Garden, Las Vegas, 2003 - Paul Simon was as detached and aloof as Art Garfunkel was easy-going and affable, but oh could they still hit those harmonies. Their Old Friends Tour was a rare chance (and perhaps the last significant chance) to see them perform together live.

    Frank Sinatra, Golden Nugget, Las Vegas, 1986 or 87 - Still performing in his early 70s, Frank had about 2/3 the voice but 100% of the style that made him famous. There was a reason the man was a legend. I'm grateful I got to find out in person.

    You sure Frank Sinatra wasn't 1990 or 91? I think that was the last time he was performing.

    I had a chance to see him for free, but being a stupid punk kid I passed....DANG!!! It would be years before I got into Sinatra, and realize what a stupid mistake I made.

    Sinatra kept performing and recording for a number of years afterwards, but I definitely saw him in concert in the late 1980s.
