What Singer or Band that you saw in concert that was a once in a lifetime thing (in other words your lucky you saw 'um) becuse that singer or band is dead or disbanded. The only one I can say I saw cuse of my age was Danny Joe Brown leading Molly Hatchet in 93. in west virginia.

Bon Scott with AC/DC was one...saw him with them 3 times.

Judas Priest with Ripper Owens instead of Rob Halford....I thought Ripper did a damn good job. I liked his stage presence. Saw them with Halford numerous times.

UFO with Paul Chapman...who I liked as much as Schenker.

Led Zeppelin at Atlanta Stadium...early 70's.

Rex Smith with his band called "Rex"...before he became a Wuss "teen Idol"

The Original Skynyrd and Skynyrd with Hughie Thomason.

Savoy Brown with Jackie "Jack the Toad" Lynton on Vocals.

The Original Black Oak Arkansas.

Uriah Heep with David Byron(Vocals) and Gary Thain(Bass)....Both Deceased now.

Trapeze when Glenn Hughes was lead Vocals and Bass

Tommy Bolin, David Coverdale and Glenn Hughes with Deep Purple.

Can't think of any others at the Moment.

I like this thread and at 4:30 in the morning after only sleeping a couple of hours before I head to the gym and work, this is off the top of my head:

Led Zeppelin-1977, MSG
Pink Floyd-1977 MSG, and 1980, Nassau Coliseum (Floyd is not Floyd without Gilmour and Waters)
Stevie Ray Vaughn-4 times
Roy Buchanon-Capitol Theatre, 1980
Rory Gallagher-Bottom Line, 1978
Jeff Buckley-3 times (first time was at Irving Plaza in 1994 and one of the best shows I ever saw)
Bon Scott-AC/DC at the Palladium, 1977-opening up for the Dictators
Ramones-Way too many times to talk about it
Tucker and every other southern rock band with a dead member
Dead with Jerry and JGB-Again, too many times to go over

Honestly, name a band over the last 30 years and I probably saw them.

Stray cats- 1st tour in a small bar
SRV- first tour in a ballroom
VH- 1st tour, small theatre
ABB- 1st row once, 2nd row once
Dickey- Front, leaning against the stage in a small bar.
He was 3 feet from me- He leaned over before starting and said to me "We've never player this close to an auduence before...hope you guys got earplugs". I said I did and that my buddy didn't. Dickey looked at him and said with a smirk "Well, I hope you already had your kids".

A couple of Jazzfest shows.....Johnny Shines, Lightnin Hopkins, Albert King, and Muddy Waters (Portnoy on harp) at the Warehouse.

Roosevelt Sykes, Muddy Waters (same band) and B.B.King (full band) on the riverboat.

Whoever mentioned EC with Derek got that right too. Sometimes you don't realize what's right under your nose.
