You want to hear her hit some high notes, eh?

After much thought, here's mine. It's an all-Canadian special:

Venue: My dock (hey, all the concerts there so far have been a blast)
Opening act: Great Big Sea (Of course we have reinforced the cribs before this band gets us stomping!)
Main act: Barenaked Ladies. They're at their prime in my dream concert, playing mostly early 90s stuff
Special Guests: Crash Test Dummies join in on Brian Wilson.
After all the guests have gone, David Foster appears with just piano, and we sit in Muskoka chairs contemplating the stars while he plays the night away.

Sighhhh. It was the best concert dream I've ever had.

Time warp concert: The Who performing Tommy at the Met in NYC to 15-minute standing ovations. One of the legendary concerts of all time.

If only they hadn't had that last drink/hit concert: Jimi and Led Zeppelin at the Rainbow room in London 1970.

Time Warp 2: Pink Floyd The Wall Live in LA.

If only the people around him could have understood back then: The Beach Boys perform "Smile" for the first time at the Monterey Pop Festival, 1967.

As far as contemporary bands and "dinosaurs" I guess I've seen who I want to see.

This is an easy one. Early morning kayaking on Bowman Lake with loons calling in the distance and paddles quietly dipping into the misty waters.
I hear this every morning for two months while working in Glacier Park. No concert or stereo system can ever match this.

Glacier National - I haven't been there in 10 years. How tough is it to get a backcountry permit these days? This park is the most beautiful area of the United States in my opinion. So as not to completely hijack the thread: My dream concert would be Charlie Parker and Miles Davis performing in a New York Club (or as an alternative, Louis Armstrong in a jazz joint in New Orleans).

That's the one I've been trying to think of. Randy Rhodes... man.

Either that or a dream group/concert/jam with
Randy Rhodes
Cliff Burton
Keith Moon

Of course, I'm sure some of you will say that I'm crazy, none of them play the same sort of stuff, etc, etc. But hey...
I am the Doctor, and THIS... is my SPOON!

I'm going with SRV, Doors, Beatles, and Hendrix as well. I have been a very fortunate individual and seen a ton of awesome concerts in my day. Wiltern theater Los Angeles best place I've ever seen for a concert. Opening act Doors, Main Hendrix guest appearance SRV.

Never did get to see those four however.

Concerts I've seen

BB King with Ray Charles
Led Zep
Stones x 3
Kinks x 7
Elton John
Proco Harum x 3 (very under rated)
The Band x3 (Once with Bob Dylan)
Little River Band
Bonnie Rait
Almond Brothers (Brothers & Sisters tour)
Billy Preston
Leon Russel
Jose Flisiono (sp)
Humble Pie
Steve Miller x2
Deep Purple x2
Beach Boys
Bruce Springstein
Fletwood Mac
Steven Curtis Chapman x2
Chuck Berry
Who x3
Brain Setzer
Country Joe and the Fish (give me an "F" !!!)
Joan Bias
Canned Heat
George Benson
Bruce Hornsbe
Rod Steward
Billy Joel
Stevie Wonder
Kenny Logins
James Taylor
Hewey Lewis and the News x2
Blues Brothers (Steve Martin King Tut tour)
Dan Fogerburg
Tim Weisburg
Grateful Dead

Best Concert: Stones Ronnie Woods first tour with them

Worst Concert: Fletwood Mac (they actually played before Deep Purple) they both sucked that night.

(turned down chance to see Beatles at Dodger stadium when I was about 10 or 11.)

Most fun concerts: almost all the Kink's concerts
Best guitar: I've heard in person: Almond Brothers lead Dicky bates cleanest/fastest guitar I've ever heard (tuff call vs Led zep lead)
Best drummer: Lez Zep (guy who died forget his name John Bontom?)
Best bass: Billy Wyman Stones
Best rhythm: Keith Richards (nobody else even close)
Best Piano: Bruce Horsby
Best Vocal performance (Deep purple, I couldn't believe he could sing Space Truckin at the same octives as the studio version)
Best entertainer: Ray Davies of the Kinks
Most energy: Bruce Springstein

Groups I would never again pay to see: Fleetwood Mac (no talent), Steve Millier (way too short a concert felt cheated second time I saw them) and Deep Purple (short concert too messed up on drugs).
