What's on your mind?
My first concert was at my high school it was Stevie Wonder with the opening band the James Gang. This happened at Maine East High School in Park Ridge Illinois I've been looking in a number of areas trying to find out the date and I think the year was 1970 or 71. If anyone remembers or locates the date please let me know.
I wanted to ask a question,
Who were all the bands that he played in before he got his own band
It was 1966.I was visiting San Francisco while staying with a very tolerant uncle who lived on Steiner st.Everyone in his apartment building told me to go to the Haight."Hate"? I thought? Huh?
Eventually someone explained that I should visit the intersection of Haight and Asbury streets.When I did this ,all the telephone poles were hung with concert posters that today sell for hundreds of dollars.
One caught my eye.It advertised Allen Ginsbergh reading his poetry together with Quicksilver Messenger Service at the Fiilimore west-I think.I went to the show really to hear Ginsbergh read.I'd read Howl and was impressed.
Ginsbetgh read a long poem re his driving to SF through 1966 America.The audience listened quietly and applauded.Then Quicksilver came on and amazed my 18' year old ears.I remember being surprised by the rhythm guitarists habit of barring the 2nd feet , playing a G form chord that sounded as A.I could just about play the guitar at the time.
I really enjoyed their live music and was always a little baffled by their career.
They did well with' who do you love 'but their career seemed to peter out after that LP.
Can anybody help me date this concert more accurately?Did anyone else
I went to this concert, one of my first. Procol Harum, LOVE, CTA-aka Chicago Transit Authority, later Chicago.
He jammed with DAVE EDWARDS NOT EDMONDS
I was born in Hartford, Connecticut, U.S.A. at just past noon on March 25, 1947. Reginald Dwight was born that very same day in the U.K.
In March of 1971 my sister, her husband, and their three-week-old son (born Feb. 23, 1971) attended Elton John's concert in San Francisco. I can find no chronicling of this event that definitely occurred. Paul, Joy, and Ted WERE there.
I saw Harry at these three locations all Aerie Crown apppearances and also both Ravinia Park appearances. Saw him about 1 dozen times. The list you have is not complete.
Sincerely Ken Cleys Harry Chapin Fan
Do you have the dates of the concerts you attended?

Did Odetta or Nina Simone ever perform at The Basement in Sydney?
In 1958 or '59 I spoke to Bo on two occasions after he played at my local roller rink. He actually set up and knocked down his own equipment right on the rink floor where a dance was held on Sunday nights. I knew Bo made guitars out of cigar boxes so I asked him about the one he played that night and he told me he did make it but he had big plans for the future. Bo said he was going to build a guitar with a transmitter in the body and an amplifier with a receiver tuned to the guitar's transmitter. He went on to say he was going to build a guitar without a wire attached to slow him down on stage. I reported the information to the Rock Hall 15 years ago but the curator made light of the information. When Bo died a few years ago his obit mentioned his interest in electricity and his self described "electrical engineer" title.

I hope someone can help! I am in search of a pearl jam European tour poster that is orange and has an African American man. I cannot find it anywhere! Even if it's not the poster I'm just hoping to find the image :)
Thank you so much!
It looks like the concert list for Creedence is missing the show that took place November 9, 1968 at San Diego's Community Concourse. The only reason I know about it is because my band, The Glass Menagerie, was one of the support acts (we were not the UK Glass Menagerie or the semi-successful Ohio garage band, but a local S.D. group more typically rocking frat parties and after-game dances). We rocketed to obscurity, but that night with CCR was a highlight and, for some reason, it's missing from most of the lists I've seen.
I have this old vintage concert Tshirt however no where does it have this place or date on their old schedules.
The concert mentioned in June, 1971 was at The State Fair Music Hall in Dallas, Tx. It is the one with Quicksilver, Chase, and ZZ. I was there. ZZ stole the show!
