For me, hands down - Floyd

Never got a chance to see them before they broke up. Odd, considering all the acid and shrooms I used to drop.....

Ummm yeah...I Guess I'd have to say Pink Floyd as well....as long as it's the "Wall" show.

I'd love to see the Smashing Pumpkins again. But I'd rather it be in the Siamese Dream days, instead of Mellon Collie when I saw them and they acted like total rock star snobs.

Floyd or the Doors.

Saw Floyd in 75 during their Wish You Were Here Tour.. I don't remember most of it

I want to see Abba

Or Black Sabbath or Deep Purple (LOVED DP)

Zepplin. If I could go 30 years into the past. Zep in California or somewhere on the west coast.

Tommy Dorsey Band.

I'm thankful I've seen several of my favorites in concert, so I won't have too many regrets. I would like to have seen Pink Floyd, but I'm not sure exactly when. Early 1970s?

Pre 1984 VanHalen. My first concert at 9 years old was VH the 1984 tour. Amazing and seeing boobies at 9 was a plus.

I got a bunch. Woody Herman and his Third Herd, that would be great. Also, The Misfits. And whatsisname Horowitz the pianist... I know, he's not a rock band, but he was a genius. And Glen Gould performing the Goldberg Variations.

And Black Sabbath with RJD, the Mob Rules tour. Heavy.

Maybe Elvis.

For me it's Catherine Wheel, or the Jellyfish. Grant Lee Buffalo was a great band too. Any of those would be great.

Brian Setzer one his own with a big band is alot different then that 3 piece sound, good just different.

Which reminds me of one that not many of you may know...........Morphine, yeah in a sence thats what broke up that band, but they rocked, not a guitar in the group.

Oh yeah, Men Without Shame was an awesome song!

Earl Slick's solos in that are so cool. Too bad Rhino hasn't re-released their albums. They did a great cover of "Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress" too.

Seriously, that's the best frontman you can come with? A squirming, nasally little worm?

Their songs were great, but he was and will always be a weird little douchebag. He did a duet with a very gay Elton John for chrissakes. Ugh.

I'd say Diamond Dave, Bon Scott, Robert Plant, Jim Morrison, Freddy Mercury, Roger Daltry, Ozzy Ozbourne all have a great deal more personality than Axl, who enjoyed but 2 decent albums and 15 minutes of fame.

No, I can come up with other frontmen too. But like I said, love him or hate him he was one of the best frontmen. When his ego and asshattery didn't get in the way. We're talking about stage presence, and not whether or not he's a "weird little douchebag."



Ok, whatever. He turns you on, and that's obvious.

I saw them in concert. He wiggled back and forth like a woman who has to piss, he got drunk, and he couldn't sing for shit.

On some planet, that's charisma. Not my planet tho.
