    I was pleasantly surprised with how her sound carried over from studio to live, especially that twangy pedal steel. Her voice wasn't the best live, perhaps that was just where I saw her though. But vocals are a very secondary concern for me. I really liked her show

    Special night. Wolfman's > Twist > Waves was an absolutely incredible 40 minutes of improvisational jamming. They played It's Ice late first set, which had eluded me for years, and capped the evening off with a beautiful cover of one of my favorite songs, Sweet Jane, by The Velvet Underground.

    Why'd they split again? I liked Omori's first solo record, never listened to the second. I love Whitney musically, but the vocals ruin most of their songs for me.

    Best concert - Foo Fighters 2000, Landmark Theatre. I had tics to see them at an earlier tour, and they bailed so they did a make up date, and I was one of the lucky people that won the chance to come to the soundcheck. Grohl asked us to shout out requests, and when I yelled "Poison" he joked about the Bell Biv DeVoe song, then shredded "Talk Dirty To Me." He also got some drunk 50 something on stage to sing "Carry On My Wayward Son." This wasn't even the concert.

    Most iconic concert - Woodstock 99

    Worst concert - Avett Brothers - Brewery Ommegang 2011 (Rained all day, unpaved lot, wife's car got stuck and we had to be winched out, only could see one song)

    Seen the most - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers/Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band (tie 3X each)

    Next concert - Toby Keith 2020 June (Xmas gift for my wife)

    Most fun concert - AC/DC - Philadelphia

    Wish you could see - Hootie and the Blowfish - oddly haven't had the chance

    Wish you could have seen - Edit - Bowie.

    Regret not seeing - 2011- Bruce Springsteen coming on stage to play with Gaslight Anthem in Asbury Park at Convention hall. Had tickets and couldn't go.
