Allman Bros w Derek Joining them at 13 onstage-electrifying.Deep Purple,Child in Time-early tour. Geez there were a lot of great British Bands & groundbrekaking Southern US bands. favorite memories seem to be the earlier shows.


other memorable shows; Bob Dylan w the Band. George Harrison,just aft Beatles on Bangladesh w Clapton & a who's who. Savoy Brown,all of Hellbound Train. Rod Stewart w Small Faces.

Trying to do this by date but inexact
Johnny Winter. Highway 61. The band left the stage, he sat on the drum riser and it was just him and the drummer for about 10 minutes
Simon & Garfunkel- Bridge Over Troubled Water At Central Park. > 500,000 people and you could hear a pin drop
Paul - hey Jude, Let it Be
Wanton Marsalis, nightstage, Cambridge MA. Just wouldn’t leave the stage. The guys in the band jaws were dropping
Grateful Dead Boston Garden 91. Dark Star
ABB Mountain Jam, Orpheum Boston 2012. Ties with Beacon, merman>MJ with Miles Davis jam
TTB - Idle Wind with Derek alone on stage doing a Sahib Teri Bondi jam

Bob Marley and the Wailers 1978, Santa Cruz Civic Center , by far most iconic.

Watkins Glen easily most memorable, but I wish I could remember it.

This is a tuff one.

Ozzy In The early 90s did a small venue tour before his “No More Tours” farewell? Run. (He was quitting 25 yrs back, ha). I seen him at the Grady Cole Center in Charlotte which was like a small high school gym and it was splendid. Zakk smoked it.

* not to crack the Zakk egg as I know all about his one off with the ABB. I never understood that debacle because I think he was very capable of playing in that league and blew a chance of being a regular guest.

I have no idea to be honest, way too hard for me to peg one.

Seeing Umphrey's McGee play "Glory" on NYE with a full church choir from like the 5th row at Auditorium Theater in Chicago, was moving.

Saw Brandi Carlisle sing "The Joke" acoustic this week in front of like 300 people and every hair on my body standing up. Not just the song but her voice, OMG. (if you haven't heard that song though, listen to it....every human should hear that song)

Gregg, Taj Mahal, Mavis Staples sing Bonnie Raitt singing "Will The Circle Be Unbroken" is something I'll never forget.

Blessed to have seen a bunch of good ones including:

Led Zeppelin - Orig.
The Who - Orig.
ABB - Chuck & Lamar
and whole bunch of others but this sticks out as "Interesting"...

Atlanta Fulton County Stadium:
Headliner was KISS (ehhh)
Blue Oyster Cult was also on the bill and they were good
Johnny & Edgar Winter were there with Rick Derringer and they were great!
Their was one or two others that were well known - Maybe Mothers Finest was one
BUT...Very first act to open played a 30 minute set that smoked everyone else... nobody seemed to have heard of them... Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band YEAH! Katmandu was the only song I knew at the time but it was great!

Looking Back if I could have seen this show 5 years later the order of appearances would likely have been EXACTLY in reverse order!

Great question. Some good ones here. I know I can come up with more but The One For Woody show at The Roseland Ballroom in New York in 2000 is something I will never forget. I think I got back to my hotel at 5 or 6 AM. And Warren played the whole thing with every band.

Somehow I was able to meet Phil Lesh the next morning on Broadway.

I was at the Allman Brothers surprise reunion concert in Central Park in August 1978. I never felt energy and excitement at a show as that day.

It actually was a Dickey Betts and Great Southern show at the Schaefer Music Festival in Central Park. There were rumors that Gregg, Butch and Jaimoe would show but nobody knew. This was a time before the internet and cell phones, so when Great Southern finished their set, there was a noticeable stirring on stage. When the whole band walked out, the place shook like an earthquake. For those of you too young, the Allman Bros were the biggest band in the land during the mid 70's (remember they headlined at Watkins Glen). Great show. Somewhere in this website i've written about this show but i can look for the post later. It was absolutely amazing.

By the way, the first incarnation of Dickey Betts and Great Southern was an incredible band and they mostly played small places. Great great band

I was there also.Number one on my most memorable.When they started the second set and a few notes in Dickey introduced Jaimoe,the place went nuts.A minute later he introduces Butch and insanity was ensuing.Another minute and there wasn't even an introduction.Gregg just walked out.If there would have been a roof,it might literally have been blown off.

Some other memorable ones:

David Peel and the Lower East Side at Folk City in Greenwich Village in the mid 70s.Itv was memorable because after the show,the only ones there were me,my friend Joe,and the band when the door opened and in walked Bob Dylan.He got on stage by himself and did Knockin On Heavens Door.The best one song to an audience of seven I was ever at.

ABB 40th anniversary show,second row,at the Beacon

and of course

The final ABB show at the Beacon

Too many to remember, but Zappa having Sting come out to do Murder By Numbers in Chicago was pretty cool.

Of course many of the Beacon shows with guests - especially Little Milton and Eric Clapton............

One of my favorite was seeing Pink Floyd do The Wall in New York when they only played London, NY and LA....

Neil 1972 New Mexico. He raged and rocked and did a little mellow. Southern Man for the ages. It was the best show I ever saw.

Dr. John, September 2, 2005, four days after Hurricane Katrina made landfall. The band had been on the road and they still didn't know the status of the families or their homes. They only knew what they were seeing on TV. A very powerful and emotional show.

ABB and Grateful Dead at Kennedy Stadium in DC maybe around '73.

Couple nights of Gregg with the 24 piece orchestra

Brer — gosh. I would’ve loved to see Bob.

Off topic, but maybe the best music film I’ve ever seen is MARLEY.

I’m not a Bob fanatic but that documentary took me from a casual listener to a true fan.

Bob was the real deal.

Several ABB shows would make my list. But if I had to pick only ONE.......and this is from a 63 year old who starting going when he was 16.............it would have to be Led Zeppelin at The Forum in L.A., 1971.

My second show ever, I was 16. And to think I didn't even know who they were...........Led Zep III was their latest........my guitar playing buddy said, "This guy Jimmy Page............Oh Man...........we have to go to this." So I said, "OK". Gotta thank him to this day. I am not kidding you: 3-1/2 hours, 5 encores. An acoustic set in the middle, side two of Led Zep III. I may have been 16 but that didn't matter much...........I knew I was seeing something really, really special and that these guys were not just musicians, they were very very much advanced............

Little Feat opening for Carlos Santana in Orange Cty, Ca. just months after SRV died. Feat had just finished a good set and Carlos had walked out on stage, guitar around his neck to a thunderous ovation. Hands raised and in a matter of seconds the crowd of about 5,000 was paying close attention to the words he was about to share. He stepped up to the mic and said the following. "I would ask for a moment of silence for my friend SRV who is now in a place where he is bathed by a light that casts no shadow" Man, you could have heard a cotton ball hit the ground, Carlos remained motionless for a moment, head down and then stepped back smiled and started to play........amazing rock & roll moment.

Hard to do but i'll give it a try.

1 - Without a doubt, ABB at Fillmore East, I think March 1970. They opened the doors to the Fillmore and it was daylight as the ABB ended with Revival J Geils and I think Freddie King opened.

The rest are in no particular order.

2 - The Who at the Metropolitan opera house in NYC. Last round for Tommy.

3 - Derek and the Dominoes at Fillmore East. No Duane but Eric left no doubt who was the man back then, probably 1970.

4 - Santana at NY Academy of Music. During the Caravanserai era. I know some don't like it but for me that was the peak of his playing with the incredible Tom Coster on keys.

After those I would say Grateful dead at Fillmore east probably 1960/1970, Rolling Stones at MSG with Mick Taylor on lead, Zeppelin at MSG ,Concert for Bengladesh at MSG and Pink Floyd with Sid Barret at Fillmore east.

I am leaving out a lot of shows including Traffic, Tull, James Gang, Yes, ELP and others but whatever memory I have left still goes for the top 4. Maybe it is nostalgia or youthful enthusiasm but the old shows have the warmest memories for this Old Dog.
