The Tubes and Be Bop Deluxe Toledo sports arena White punks on dope?
Reminds me of an old joke I heard many years ago.
A guy is sitting in a bar and looks over at the guy sitting next to him, who is pouring beer over his hand. “What are you doing?” the first guy asks. “I’m getting my date drunk.”
Too many envious people in this company.
Melanie. And yes, I’m dating myself now. I was then, too.
Very first concert – The Carpenters (I don’t remember where exactly – somewhere in VA).
Alice Cooper, Edmonton, Alta. Unfortunately, Alice had injured himself in the previous concert and was only able to make it through two songs.
I saw Molly Hatchet in Des Moines in ’79.
Led Zeppelin. Oakland, California
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – A Day on the Green at Milwaukee County Stadium
First “Big Name” concert was James Taylor at MSU in 1970, of course that discounts have seen a bunch of “small names” like SRC, Frost, Julia, Bob Segar, Mitch Ryder. When I saw Segar and Ryder there were three other acts on the bill and it cost a whole 25 cents to get in. Segar played one of my Friend’s Senior Prom around that time as well.
The band Chicago in Cincinnati about 1976-78.
George Jones performed in my city. He was so drunk he could not sing. John Conlee finished the concert. The next year, the same issue. George Jones was never booked again.
John Zakour and Scott Roberts
