Jerry Lee Lewis
Atlanta City Auditorium 1968

My older brother took me.

Atlanta country staion WPLO-590 AM promoted the show.
The Killer almost blew the roof off the old place. First time I had heard rock n roll live.

I remember everyone on the floor standing on their chairs screaming for an encore.

If they got paid, they're professionals.

I guess my first might have been the Atlanta Symphony in grade school, say 1969 or so.

Some band playing at the NCO Club at Fort Jackson, SC in the mid to late 50s. Parents had took us there for dinner and they had a swing type of band playing there that evening. I was about 6 or 7 years old.

At my fathers Italian American Club Dance... I was probably 4 or 5. They had a huge stage in this hall they bought in San Francisco. I would just stand there mesmerized watching/listening to these sound coming from the stage

I'm sure I can't remember the first time, as we were taken to illegal VFW and American Legion clubs since infancy. Music was very important in my Dad's world, his personality would have fit right in here. First real one I remember is a shower of stars in about 9th grade, headliner was Hermans Hermits.

A Bob Hope USO show at Clark Air Base, Philippines in 1967. He had Raquel Welch and other performers that I don't remember anymore. I was seven years old and my dad was in the USAF and we had just been assigned to Clark after my dad returned from a tour in Vietnam. I had my little Kodak Brownie camera and snapped away happily, even though I was too young to really grasp what it meant to be in the presence of Raquel Welch!

Arf,
Dinah

Badfinger at the L.I. Arena. I think there were a couple of bands that night. I went looking for the bathroom and ran into the band and met Peter Ham. I was very happy to meet him, I don't even remember what I said, but I do remember I complimented him and he thanked me, kissed me and then left. The next day we heard he committed suicide overdosing on Nembutals. That left an impression on me. If someone wants to kill themselves they ought to try talking to somebody, maybe even someone they do not know who could be objective and give them a different perspective.
