Your Input: Ever catch your FAVE?
We thought we’d continue to play off the “Your Input” theme of LIVE music….
Bobby has seen his all-time favorite band, Rush, many many times.
By contrast, Andy’s all-time favorite band stopped touring before he was even born (The Beatles).
Have you ever seen your all-time favorite artist or band live?
Let’s hear from you!

Pink Floyd has been my all time favorite band since the early ’70’s. I finally got to see them live at the Orlando Citrus Bowl, in the pouring rain in ’87 or ’88. I remember it was March 30th, but I don’t remember the year for sure. I was a lot younger than and out of my mind most of the time!👍😎
Sadly, I (Andy) never saw them live, even in the Post-Roger era. And I probably could have.
Some of my decisions from yesteryear are EXTREMELY questionable.
Although I never got to see my all time favorite band,Led Zeppelin ( I did have tickets on order, in1980,but we all know what happened, there) I did manage to see Robert Plant, 3 times. That was awesome. I did see Deep Purple, perfect strangers tour, Twice. And I’ll tell ya,there was no other singer like Ian Gillan, back then!!!
Hi Joe! A buddy of mine had tickets to see them in Detroit, late in ’80… 🙁
Yes! Lucky to see Bowie.. I lost my sight at 27. My own 27 club lol but I was lucky enough to have my site when I saw Bowie twice and Lou Reed and also the Rolling Stones and many others but most of my bucket list has been completed without site which is OK no complaints here! How about flipping it and asking if there is any faves that we regret not seeing? And not actually those that stopped before we were born, not a slam Andy but I guess I mean more contemporary bands for example I wish I had seen Janis Joplin but she died when I was a little girl.
P.S Oct. 22 is the best day this year!!!
I (Andy) sadly never saw Bowie live. I know Bobby did. I wish I had. One of my musical regrets, Shelley.
The “REGRET” list is actually a very cool idea. Mine would be long, no question…
One of my favorites right there dudes 👍🏼👍🏼 CRAYON!!!
How does it sound and look to you, Mark?
Bowie ,Dylan,Queen, a lot of Aussie bands, concerts sell out in less than minutes here in west Aus, , and we seem to be too far away these days for the big gigs, sitting on tickets for London Grammar and Zucchero at the moment, its been nearly 2 years, but we wait.
Hi Shirl! It is SO AMAZING that you saw Queen and Bowie especially. Just marvelous. If only this damn time machine would start working!!!! I’m hoping still to see Dylan at some point before it’s too late.
I’ve seen my 2 all time favorite bands,Pink Floyd,Paul McCartney…
I also love the Beatles but was born 3 yrs after there break up..
There music is still resonate’s loud and clear
Hey Chris! Yes, the Fabs stopped playing live before my time. But as you say, the band SO RESONATES today… and the new Let It Be/Get Back project is so mouth watering… By the way, I (Andy) have seen McCartney live 8 times. Still not enough.
My favorite band (other than Elm Treason of course) is AC/DC. I’ve never seen them in concert, I almost went during the Black ice tour. I sure wish I had given that Malcolm has since passed away and touring seems pretty questionable lately.
LOVE hearing that. 🙂 Thank you, man.
I (Andy) saw AC/DC once with Brian Johnson. GREAT GREAT show…. I wish I would have seen them with Bon, but I was a too young, sadly….
Malcolm was a GREAT GREAT GREAT rhythm guitarist and composer. The riff man!
Seen loads of favourites. Where pretty lucky in Ireland for big gigs & festivals That was until Covid shite came about…. Hopefully get to go to some gigs again soon 😎🤟
Metallica, Guns & Roses, Chilli Peppers, Foo fighters, Velvet Revolver, Pink Floyd, Rodger Waters, Eric Clapton, Oasis, Liam Gallaher, Puddle of Mud, Royal Blood, Monkford and sons, U2 , High flying Birds, Verve, Snow Patrol, Queens of stone age, too name a few favourites, some of those seen more than once 😎🤟
Man, you have had all the BIG NAMES up your way. VERY VERY cool.
I like Crayon. Just love that Riff like its on a mission 😂. Like that i can see what your playing that i can attempt to mess your songs up lol
Nice list! Just wondering where in Ireland you are from I have been there twice and was planning to go in 2020 hmmm… looks like fingers crossed it will be 2022 but spending five days in Scotland and two in Ireland!
I live in Co Tyrone moreless on the boarder between North and South 👍. My Grandmother was from Glasgow Scotland. You can ferry across from Scotland to Ireland in a couple of hours and be only about 40mile from me 🇮🇪.
That is a sensational way to put it, Turlough! It’s a riff on a mission! LOVE THAT!
Very happy you’re putting Crayon on Bare Tones. Weird question, but could you consider it kind of a Rock Samba?
