What big concerts have you been to? How were they? With a fair amount of luck, and money, I'll see the Foo Fighters when they play in Portland, Oregon on July 10th.
Since I started college I have seen Tom Petty, Ben Harper twice, Damien Marley, Damien Rice, Herbie Hancock, John Mayer, The Police, Elvis Costello, Del The Funky Homosapien, The Wu Tang Clan and Rage against the Machine. My favorite concerts were the Tom Petty concert and the second Ben Harper concert. However, seeing the Wu Tang Clan and Rage against the machine was probably one of the most intense experiences of my life.
I'm not overplaying them, I only know a few of their songs anyways. I'd just like to see them. My favorite band EVER is Nirvana, so getting to see Dave play live would be great. (although I think he was a better drummer than frontman)
Dave is one of my heroes. He almost exactly the same age as me and has talent beyond measure. He used to play the drums like a supernova. Constantly exploding.
I saw Nirvana 5 times with their first drummer, then twice with Dave. I tell everyone who would listen, that "Teen Spirit" is what it is because of the drums. Listen to the start of that song and tell me the chill doesn't start when Dave kicks in! Best show ever: Washington DC (forgot the venue) winter 1989-1990.
Prior to Nirvana, Dave played with Scream, a Northern Virginia band (Baily's Cross-Roads, to be exact) I saw about a dozen times (only twice with Dave drumming). Before that, Dave was with a band called Dain Bramage; that was the first time I saw Dave. He was the only remarkable part of that band, and no one noticed the other members were even there. It was like:"What's the drummer going to do next?" The guitarist and bassist were aware that Dave was going to leave them. Never saw Foo Fighters, and I agree with Binzing: Dave is not a guitarist/singer the way he is a drummer.
Yeah I saw RATM and WuTang in Detroit a few years back. So crazy. Not a big Wu Tang Clan fan but Rage was awesome.
God your one lucky SOB! (OK maybe not the SOB part, but yeah) I would have given soo much to see that. Kurt is my most influential idol/person, thing. While "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is good, it's far from my fav. Nirvana song...When you got to see them, what size were these concerts? The smaller ones were always really good, with a great atmosphere, from what I have seen, read, and heard.
Flogging Molly is the only concert I have been to.
