thanks for comment FH! I had the great privilege to see a number of classic shows, including Woodstock, Hendrix, Joplin, Doors, etc. but this one had to be in my personal Top Three, if not #1

wow!....you are a lucky duck!.......I was born just a little too late (1964) to be able to see live, what I consider to be the best time for popular music ever (1964-1976)....would have loved to been a little older..... everyone then had their own guitar sound or their own voice..........cheers

FH, I could not agree more and one day I think I will either write a long article about it or even a book, cause I was very fortunate to be at the epicenter at the right time (1962-1976) coinciding with exactly the age when one first gets involved with music and then I became, not fanatic, but very very interested in seeing top groups..never saw the Beatles or the Stones live but just about everyone else...the other one I regret most not seeing was Deep Purple, and surely a lot others, but the list is fairly amazing of those I was able to catch live....but even before the onslaught of British Invasion and then San Francisco sound and psychedelic and LA country rock and then harder rock we were heavily into the late 50's and early 60's groups of Motown and California surfin and Philly soul and the American Bandstand type groups..every day after school, if not playing sports, would rush home to see "Where the Action Is", hosted by Paul Revere and the Raiders
