Frank Zappa at the Pacific Coliseum - his band was ridiculously talented, probably the best I've seen

Chili Peppers at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC - naked people everywhere, the whole crowd outside the VIP area was the mosh pit

Johnny Cash and Beck in Austin, TX - at the SXSW festival in 1994, Cash still had a lot of life in him

Garbage at the Metropolis in Mtl - for their 2nd record, went there with a huge crowd of people, it was like a private show

Paul Simon - Steve Gadd was playing drums, huge fan of that guy

I saw Zappa when I was pretty young, maybe my 10th concert out of 1000+, but it left a lasting impression

Elton John, 1972 in a small theatre/benefit concert, in London with Princess Margaret of all people in attendance. Then again when he did his Yellow Brick Road tour. Rod Stewart with Faces at the PC in and around '70. Roger Waters, with part of Floyd at BC Place in 1994, in fact the last two times he was through here. People in Berlin still talk about "the Wall concert in 1989. Saw the tail end of Don MacLean in the Royal Albert Hall, the sound was incredible. The Eagles in '03 was great, seats were better, almost sitting on the stage. Would have loved to have seen the Beatles anywhere, especially around their Sgt Pepper times, the Stones at BC Place the sound was terrible although it could have been where we were sitting in the nosebleeds. Queen would have been a great concert to get to see also. Too many to remember, and the first one ever was Iron Butterfly in the old PNE Gardens.
