Hum, it seems we all have more in common than just fishing. Went to lots of concerts in the 70's - Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Zappa, Bob Seager, Foghat, Kiss, Peter Frampton, etc. but truth to tell I don't remember them - didn't then and don't now. The "non-chemical" years have turned out to be the best - at least in terms of concert going - and probably everything else as well.

If you add up all the dollars we spent on concerts, think of the drake fest we could have today.BTW - it came to me last night after an agave & lime toasty, the name of the recording studio in Colorado was the Caribou Ranch. Anyone know if it's still in business? I seem to recall it burned down or something, under questionable circumstances I think. Insurance claims.

I concur, my (almost) sober years(insert yourn favorite occassional dark beer), have also beemy best years. It's great to go to a live music venue and actually hear the artist perform. Lifeis good! I'll be fifty real soon, if someonetold me 30 odd years ago that I would be aliveat 49 3/4, I would have thought they were nuts!

Roy Acuff, 1945 in the National Guard Armory. Someone with him sang "Old Shep" and I cried. Roy sang "The Great Speckled Bird" and Mama cried.Flatt and Scruggs, 1949 or 50 on top of the concession stand at the drive-in. It was misting and Earl had difficulty keeping in tune (skin head on his banjer was streaching because of the moisture).Frank Sinatra, 1958, Copacabana NY city. Mesmerizing.Chet Atkins, 1959, some joint on music row. We thought he would be at the Opry, wasn't. He jammed with whom I can't remember and we talked to him afterward. The thrill of my life.Charlie Bryd, 1960, dive in DC. When he played "Lullaby of Birdland" the hair rose on my neck.Johnny Cash, 1967, had to be helped on to a stool, which he fell off twice during the performance. He was great. Saw him a year later, sober and fat, he was awful.

crick addict, I'm with ya. So many times I think if someone so many years ago had said to me 'in so many years you'll be blah blah..., I would have said 'get the fuck outa here', but here I am anyway, WTF.Fatal 1940, that is an impressive list. Roy Acuff, damn... Frank Sinatra, 1958, Copacabana, double damn, that's some great stuff, thanks.
