    Pink Floyd at the height of their powers, i.e. any time after Dark Side Of The Moon until before The Final Cut. I'd certainly like to have seen one of their The Wall concerts.

    Queen, circa 1985-89.

    Of course, I am refering to attending live concerts, not so much watching them work in the studio, although in both cases I think I'd enjoy that too.

    Many, many ideas come to mind, but . . . The Beatles during the A Hard Days Night era. [​IMG]

    I bet Mozart was a total riot live.

    Charlie Parker in NYC in the early 50s.
    The Who in the early-mid 70s, perhaps the Young Vic Lifehouse concerts or the tour supporting "By Numbers"
    The Beatles clubbing in Hamburg in '62-'63
    Genesis performing "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway"
    Paul McCartney during the "Wings Over America" tourYup. I would love to see the debut of Piano Concerto 20.

    Probably an Adam & the Ants Kings of the Wild Frontier era show.

    Or...since she never toured again, maybe I should take in Kate Bush's first show...but I've seen it on DVD.

    Same situation with the Eurythmics - as intense as it would be to see their early era - that's on DVD too. Still, it would be amazing to see in person, knowing how big they were to become... yeah I think I'll go with the Eurythmics' back when they were brand new.

    Vocalese greats Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross.

    Dave Lambert was killed by traffic in 1966 while helping a stranded motorist on the side of the road. [​IMG] Jon Hendricks and Annie Ross have continued to perform (as recently as a few years ago), sometimes together, but it wouldn't be the same.

    For me it would be:

    The Moody Blues between 1966 and 1972.

    Jimi Hendrix during any part of his career.

    Nat King Cole during any part of his career as well.

    The Beatles on their last tour.

    The Eurythmics for me all the way.

    Having gotten the pleasure of seeing Annie open for Sting was a huge treat...though only getting to hear her live for an hour wasn't nearly long enought. It was truly a religious experience seeing her. It still send chills through me thinking of it. I really wish that she and Dave would tour together.

    Because I've seen many of the current bands already posted....I'll list the top three that I was too young to get a chance to see at the height of their skills...
    - Zeppelin
    - Zeppelin
    - Zeppelin..........

    (although VH live back in 1984 was awesome...or maybe I was just too young...)
