Talking Heads. Definitely Talking Heads. There was a spectacular concert in Central Park that I missed and have always regretted. Of course, Frank Sinatra and also big bands like Glen Miller. Another missed opportunity is Queen with Freddie Mercury.

I've seen the Allman Bros. but never with Duane. And I am grateful (!) to have seen the Grateful Dead with Jerry. Many of the bands I love have had a long history, but I've missed some of their best eras. I've seen Bowie many, many times, but never as Ziggy Stardust.

A band I would still like to see is the Rolling Stones. I think I would have preferred the Stones of times gone by, but I imagine they still put on a good show. Anyone know for sure?

I don't get to concerts much anymore. Over the years (read as: as I've aged!) I've gotten much more concerned about hearing loss and tinnitus, so I don't attend concerts without wearing ear plugs, and it sort of takes the fun out of it.

One of the best concerts I've seen was the Grateful Dead in the early 80's outdoors at the Santa Fe Downs. I loved Bowie's 50th Birthday show at MSG, and a real sleeper was Matisyahu at a temple in Scarsdale NY. There have been others that I can't think of right now.
