Not quite sure why Seals and Croft was on the bill. That made as much sense as Sha-na-na at Woodstock

Holy cow!! What a great line-up!! I remember that very show. Not 'cuz I went - but because my mom wouldn't let me go!! I was the youngest of a group of pretty hip people, led by my very hip Uncle Brett. I was just 13. Poor ol' Mom. She thought there might be (gasssp!!) people smoking pot there! Naaaaaah!!

I also missed Jimi Hendrix at the Forum that same era - same reason.

Funny thing....when I was 15, I went to my first (of 25+) Grateful Dead show(s) - no problem. "No drugs there, no way, Mom ... I swear!"

I would be like "okay, I can die now." That line-up is insane. Howlin Wolf OPENING for Alice Cooper? Amazing!

Dayum, that must've been one kickass show! I saw Commander Cody & the Lost Planet Airmen in 1972 with the New Riders of the Purple Sage, Alice Cooper in 1970 with Lee Micheals and Howlin Wolf got away from me when I was on a liquor run while partying at a friend's place in Tarzana in 1982 and saw a crowd lining up for HW at a local club and didn't park the car in the middle of the street and run inside.

My first concert ever (free tickets)
- around 1971
- Witter Field, Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin
- Glen Campbell headlined, with comedian Totie Fields as the opening act. This was a free show, sponsored by one of the banks in my hometown to celebrate their 100 year anniversary. Everyone was amazed that a television star with real hit records would come and visit our town.

My first concert with paid tickets (paid by someone else)
- around 1975
- Marshfield County Fairgrounds, Marshfield, Wisconsin
- Buck Owens and his Buckaroos

My first rock concert (tickets bought in advance, by myself for myself))
- 1982
- Boulder Theatre, Boulder, Colorado
- The Stray Cats (and two days later I saw the Clash at Red Rocks)

My first concert was the summer before starting high school. It was The Plasmatics at the Whiskey a Go-Go. My next concerts after that were a few of the notorious Black Flag shows that ended in riots with the LAPD.

The Golden Bear was in Huntington Beach.

The city lost a lot of it's personality when this place and the Surf Theatre closed

My folks took us to see Liberace(!) when I was 5 or 6. He played for a private group of Aerospace workers.

First "real" concert: Nitty Gritty Dirt Band & Taj Mahal at the Golden Bear in Huntington Beach

Second was Black Sabbath at the Whiskey-A-Go-Go on their first U.S. tour.....had to leave halfway thru their set because my friend drove his dad's car

Loudest band: Lock-Up (pre-Rage Against The Machine Tom Morello's hard rock band)....stadium volume at a small club in Santa Barbara (saw Van Halen twice......not as loud!)

Drunkest band: Rod Stewart & The Faces.....he must have dropped the microphone a dozen times while trying to sing. Opening bands were Rory Gallagher and Deep Purple. Long Beach Arena

Also at LBA to see Wishbone Ash and Camel (U.K. bands) was some new band opening for them called Kiss. A tough act to follow....

Loudest?

The Who.

It was SO loud that ny girlfriend had to shout into my ear for me to hear her. We're talking pain!

There was also a Zydeco band at the Rock and Bowl in New Orleans. They made up for their lack of talent by just playing loud. Phew, did they suck! Loud is OK when the music is good, but when it's bad... that's a bad experience.
