The Libertines with Pete - any of 'em: Filthy McNasties, Love Music Hate Racism at the Astoria, The Forum, Rhythm Factory, etc. The Strokes at Arlene Grocery
and Nirvana, The Clash and Bob Dylan in the 60s (especially around Freewheelin') - not sure of specific shows.
manic street preachers astoria 1994. i'm pretty morbid.
reading leeds 1994...loads of great bands at that. also 1991 with nirvana.
ziggy stardust farewell.
any joy division gig. luckily, i've seen new order twice but still...
the smashing pumpkins farewell tour 2000, i believe? i kick myself for missing this constantly.
stone roses back in 1988.
Unlike Tangerine, I wouldn't go for the 66 Judas gig, but I would go for Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue. in 1975 Easy. If this doesn't electify you, nothing will. (This is actually from Renaldo and Clara but it gets the point across)
But above that by a million gazillion miles, the legendary Springsteen gig at the Hammersmith Odeon in London in 75. It is like friggen opera. Albeit testosterone charged opera. Plus the way he plays with his hat kills me! "There is an opera out on the turnpike, and there is a ballet being fought in the alley"
Or Bruce at the Roxy in 78. Look at the girls rushing the stage
Oh and Bruce in 2006 on the Seegar Sessions tour... but wait I was there! . Bruce shows Bob how to get better with age. Plus he was always more innovative. Try playing anything from any of his earlier albums and your fingers will fall off. Bob's beauty is simplicity but he was always too derivative Guthrie for me.
And Patti Smith closing out CBGB. Wish I had been in NY in October this year.
Anything Patti in the 70s
And call me crazy but Captain Beefheart, just the once, just for kicks
I have 70s addiction issues. And none of these people (Dylan aside) were into crack or nonsense or immaturity. It really shows. [YOUTUBE][/YOUTUBE]
I LOVE that Hendrix clip Tangerine. I dont think it is the same listening to a Hendrix record as seeing a vid. He is like Springsteen in the sense that they only reach their dizzy heights on a live stage
I would love to be at woodstock 69', that would be the most amazing thing ever!
And Bob was suppose to play there Sienna, but he couldnt do it because his son was taken ill. According to wikipedia 'he also was unhappy about the number of the hippies piling up outside his house near the originally planned site'. He is not a very fun guy is he.. Well thats why we have Pete Doherty.
I was waiting for that Hilde! Actually he is a real misery guts. I heard an interview where he said he didn't want to play cos he didn't like the idea of people on shrooms in silly clothes or something. Geesh, lighten up.
Yeah Raoul. Real barrel of laughs that one. Between the general and the crack.
