I was a fairly nutso Led Zep fan through their first two lps, and was thrilled to know they would be playing in Raleigh, just a 90 minute drive away. They performed a very mediocre show consisting mostly of Plant's schreiking and Page's noodling around on the guitar. It really went nowhere. I haven't really paid any attention to LZ since, although I think that when he's on, Jimmy Page can really bring the goods. I also know that the concert experience involves the players and the fans so it could have been a bad night for me too.

Jethro Tull's "A" tour killed it for me.
ZZ Tops "Eliminator" tour ditto.
Still like their older stuff, but kinda nothing after......

Asia's 1st tour.
Total disinterest.

Some others I've repressed.....

Greetings n Salutations

For me it was Aerosmith Caifornia Jam 1976 . It ended my wanting to see them in concert though I stil enjoy listening to thier 70's stuff. What that concert did gor me though was "turn me on" to Santana and Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush. After all I was in 7th grade at the time and listening to kiss (forgive me) On the opposite trip... I didn't really care for listening to the Dead untill I saw them live.

Be blessed

When I worked for Tower I used to hear new albums all the time and when I'd go to the shows, I'd be dissapointed, but I can think of any specific bands.

The ELO tour (out of the blue) where they played side two of the record note for note.

Only it wasn't them playing It was lip syncing to tape. never saw them after that.
I felt betrayed.

Peace
John

I had a little trouble witnessing Jon Anderson of YES prancing around the Forest Hills Stadium in spandex sometime in the early 80's ...but if I closed my eyes, it didn't sound too bad!

Fleetwood Mac at Jones Beach was horrible. Stevie was way intoxicated and Mick Fleetwood had this electronic "drum vest" on and came around the front of his kit and beat himself like a gorilla for what seemed like forever. Guess he was waiting for Stevie to stumble her way back to the stage. Oy....

I saw the Tom Johnston Doobie Brothers in the summer of '73 I think it was. I was horribly dissapointed. Their sound system was woefully inadequate for the size of the venue and the harmonies were just not happening. I remember Jesus is Just Alright in particular, just awful.

Tom Petty on his Last DJ tour in 2002.
I used to be really into phish until I saw them play the first night in Camden NJ.
That was one of the worst concerts I've ever been to.

yeah, sure...lots of them!

black crowes jump to mind....followed by Marylin Manson. not like i was a huge fan of either but i had a Manson album that i was digging...then the creep starts sticking his finger up is a$$ right in front of me (front row does sometimes have it disadvantages).

Chris robinson was still on drugs when i saw the crowes (twice). they sucked...BAD.

Oh, and the Moody Blues where pretty bad too. but that was only 10 years or so ago....

Dave Letterman asked Chris if he learned anything from The Road.

Chris said "you don't have to drop acid every night."

I saw the Crowes open for Lenny kravitz a few years back and the tour with Jimmy Page.
They were really on those nights. When Chris is on he's one
of the best frontmen in rock. He had the crowd in the palm of
his hand at the Kravitz show. The energy carried over into
Lenny's set also. A very good night.

But if he is out of it, there is no energy.
I've heard some similar complaints about his new band.
Seems like he needs to remember what he told Dave.

Peace
John

I've seen the Crowes quite a few times in all different eras of the band. And they could be a GREAT live band. But they had some serious problems through some periods of their career and I saw some pretty bad shows as well. It's a shame when that has to happen. - Incidentally, I did get to meet the whole band once and they were all such unbelievably wonderful guys except for Chris & Rich Robinson... Too bad. I really liked Ed Harsch. A very funny man.

I was mad at Eric Claton for a long time for being drunk and a complete waste of my time. But I never gave up on him.

well, i met Chris Robinson when he was opening for Elvis earlier this year. great guy i thought.

also, when he opened for Mule on 10/10 in Philly he was really great. IMHO, of course....i think sobriety is doing great things for his music.

Buddy Guy, hands down ... I've seen him twice, and both times were a huge waste of time and money ..... It makes me feel bad to say it too cuz I realize his place in history and his huge influence on some of my favs ....

oh well ....

I saw the Crowes open for Lenny Kravitz a few years ago too. I thought they were much better than Kravitz was. I was never a fan, but that concert REALLY turned me off to him. A lot of BS rockstar posing and crap.

But Lenny's band smokes. Cindy is amazing as are the other cats.

I'd go see Cindy with Lenny or with her own band (jazzier) anytime.

Buddy Guy. Setlist: 20 or 30 songs started, 0 finished; bitch about the curfew; finish before the curfew and split.
Sometimes the timing's just not right. Finally got to see Clapton during the "Pilgrim" tour. I remember the usher waking me up "Uh sir, the concert's over!"
Saw Jeff Beck during his "Techno" tour. WTF was that?
Everyone can have a bad night but I also can't stand those groups that note for note their albums. Huey Lewis and Glen Frey come to mind there.

He's right.

Well, I saw Buddy sing Bill Withers' "Keep on Usin' Me" to Susan Tedeschi & I thought it was just great! I always meant to ask her what she thought of that. Linnie, I'm going to see the moodies tonight & the mule with chris robinson tomorrow night--same venue. I'm hoping to get Kate Hudson's autograph on my copy of "almost famous"--oooh, wouldn't that be cool! Moodies & the mule--gee, which one will I like more? the thing I can't figure is the moodies are $65 and warren is $25. I guess it's pretty obvious which one is the musical bargain.
