I'm going to see Pennywise tonight. I'm not necessarily a big fan, but somehow this is the 4th time I've seen them live.
Same for Social Distortion. I've seen them live probably 4 or 5 times, but don't own any of their albums. I some of it is from going to festivals like the Warped tour or whatever, but sometimes friends just drag you along. Is this unusual?
I've seen Social D as well, don't have their CDs.
Same for Todd Snider
Yep. (Pennywise is cool.... enjoy the show)
I've seen X, own nothing from them.
I've seen Felix Da Housecat, own nada.
I saw Social D twice, still own nothing...
I saw Spiritualized, own nada (don't really care to after that show)
I saw SuperSuckers once, own nada (but my GF does - does that count?)
I've seen Lenny Kravitz (for free), own nothing...
I've seen Peter Gabriel, own nada
I've seen Neil Young, own nothing... (does CSN&Y count?)
I saw Prince on his most recent tour, and until that night, I owned nothing (yet they were giving away his new cd when you walked in the arena - so much for record sales - they gave out something like 20K copies that night here in Dallas).
This isn't counting the festival shows like Ozzfest/Tattoo the Earth/Texxas Jam
I think that's it....
Lots of people do it. I know several people who's hobby is going to concerts. Big, small, they don't care. It's a concert and they love the mob.
I've only been dragged to two concerts and count myself unlucky in that, neither was to a band who I had any intrest in.
