Reply to "Top 5 (or so) concerts you attended"

I'm going for most eclectic.

Jefferson Airplane--Grant Park, 1969

The Band--numerous times, the first at the Aire Crown theater, 1971

Woody Allen (with, believe it or not, Jim Croce opening)--Mill Run Playhouse, 1972

Mahavishnu Orchestra--Aragon Ballroom, 1973 (my most jaw-dropping concert)

Steve Martin--Amazingrace, circa 1974 (He knew he was funny and he was going to kill you.)

Bruce Springsteen--Auditorium Theater, 1975 (better than expected, but never had interest to see again.)

Gary Burton with Pat Metheny and Mick Goodrick--Amazingrace, 1975

Keith Jarrett--Amazing Grace--1975

Pat Metheny's first group--Amazingrace-1976

Spinal Tap--Club Metro--circa 1986

Fishbone--Club Metro--circa 1986

Ron Carter with a string quartet (!)--Catalina Bar & Grill, 1999

Charlie Haden and Quartet West, Wadsworth Theater, 2004

Cream reunion--Madison Square Garden, 2005

Additional shows, Charles Mingus, Carla Bley, McCoy Tyner, Bill Cosby (pre-Quaaludes, 1969), George Carlin (in Vegas), Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, Cecil Taylor (the most difficult concert I've been to), Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes opening for Tiny Tim (!) and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (I the only hippie in a sea of greasers and girls with giant blonde bouffants).
