  1. I think G&R were playing at the Banc of California Stadium not SoFi so that might be why the traffic wasn't horrible. Anyway, I saw the Black Crowes in San Diego on Wednesday and really enjoyed the show too. They played Hey Hey What Can I Do for an encore. It's great to go back to concerts again.

    Official Mascot

    That’s an interesting fun fact. Several years ago a newly discovered velvet spider that lives underground was named after Lou Reed. “loureedia” There is also a spider named after David Bowie but I don’t think it was discovered on Mars.🙂 Anyway, thanks for posting that!
  3. Like a couple of the other posters here, I would also like to see a Led Zeppelin show from early in their career. If I'm choosing an artist I never got to see at all, then the top two are The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix. Even though The Beatles were drowned out by the audience noise, just the experience of seeing them in person would be tremendous. In other words, if the choices were: (1) never got to see The Beatles or (2) saw The Beatles but the sound sucked, I would still go with (2). With Jimi Hendrix, seeing the original Experience would be my first choice but I would be ecstatic to see him any night with any of his bands. I've seen a lot of concerts but there are so many more I wish I had seen. If I had a TARDIS that was restricted to transporting me to concerts I would be happy. No paradoxes, no disrupting of the space-time continuum, just seeing lots of concerts.
  4. It looks like it will be a good read! I checked out your website too. I like seeing photos of visits to LZ related places.
  5. That whole weekend leading up to the show was so much fun. Starting when I stepped off the plane and the immigration agent asked how long I was staying. When I replied I was going home on Dec. 11 he asked in a dry tone if I was there for the Led Zeppelin concert. The gatherings the night before the concert, even the long wait to pick up ticket and wristband and then wait again in the merchandise line just built up the buzz and anticipation. Finally, standing in the crowd on the arena floor witnessing such a wonderful show. Truly, a spectacular adventure. Still hard to believe it was ten years ago.
  6. If I recall, the Plant character's line was something like "What do I know, I'm just the singer" but I thought it sounded sarcastic, as if his real meaning was: I'm not stupid so don't waste my time with bullshit. To me, he didn't seem clueless at all. Anyway, I know there isn't much point in me dissecting a small bit of a dead show but I just had a different perspective on that particular scene.
  7. Several years ago we were at a conference in Cincinnati and took a few days after to wander around in Ohio. Number one on the list for me was a pilgrimage to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. We really enjoyed it and I recommend it. We liked the Air Force Museum in Dayton too.
  8. The Beach Boys last night at the Hollywood Bowl.
  9. Like most of you, I have mixed feelings as well about the induction process for the RHOF. Some of my favorites are overlooked year after year while rappers and Madonna get in. I don't think I'm going to try for a ticket because of the travel expenses but I think it will be a great time for those who go. I did visit the museum a few years ago and really enjoyed it, so if you're going to see the induction ceremony, definitely take an afternoon to go to the museum.
