May 1964, Peter Paul and Mary at the Masonic Temple in San Francisco. Later that year, Bob Dylan (with a surprise visit by Joan Baez) at the San Jose Civiv Auditorium.

Great memories.

I think it was Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot and Mother's Finest, a triple header, sometime in the 70's.

The Yardbirds featuring Jimmy Page playing in the gymnasium of my high school, Christ the King, Queens, New York, 1967. I was standing literally right in front of them for the whole set and have an original print of this photo, purchased from the school photographer along with an interview in the original school newspaper given by either Chris Dreja or Jim McCarty. I also have all their autographs on a napkin.

Andrés Segovia

Wasn't he wonderful!

Many years ago, I saw him and later on saw Montoya both at Carnegie Hall.

Segovia played with so much feeling, but I felt that while Montoya was masterful in his technique, his performance lacked emotion, especially compared to Segovia.

I met Chris Dreja, he's a friend of a former coworker of mine. He was in the US to visit his daughter at college and dropped by the office for lunch with the coworker. I was too swamped with deadlines to go along, although invited, and too stupid to realize that the deadlines were BS. I should have gone. He had aged beautifully, by the way.

We've posted about this topic before and I've told the story of seeing The Yardbirds at my HS a couple of times but I never got to scan and post the memorabilia until now. So for rgG, $tevie, Fritz and anyone who'd like to see:





And the second concert I ever went to was:







Yep, $4.00 to see Zep plus Woody and Delany and Bonnie. It was truly an amazing time for music and to be into learning to play an instrument. These guys were such inspirations to me. :-)

This strikes me as a somewhat bizarre, albeit awesome, line up. emoticon-animal-004

Why on earth were the Yardbirds playing at a HS in Queen's? Is there a story there?

you don't find that kind of mix on shows nowadays. hell, you rarely see more than two acts on a bill.

Ted Nugent, about '78 or so. Right before he went bat chit crazy. I remember asking a coworker on the walk out to the parking lot if he was going, and he said he wasn't sure. He didn't know if he would like the opening act that no one had ever heard of. Turned out to be The Cars. :-)

I almost got to see Alice Cooper several years earlier, but I had to work at the family business so my older brothers and sisters could go. (last minute change, my sister wasn't going, but changed her mind after her boyfriend talked her into going. She wasn't a fan). rolleyes smiley
