    What Bands....

    Since I am home sick today, and have not been on the board in what seems to be a million years, I thought I would pose a question to get a little something started on a very " sleepy" board.


    What bands ( dead or alive...) would you like to see, but have not had the opportunity????

    Okay.. here are mine....Not in order....

    1) U2
    2) Peter Murphy
    3) The Cure
    4) New Order/ Joy Division
    5) Depeche Mode
    6) Sade
    7) Garbage
    8) the Editors
    9) Bryan Ferry/ Roxy Music
    10) Janet Jackson
    11) Muse
    12) The The
    13) The Church
    14) Ikon
    15) Ultra Vox


    I am sure there are others... But i can not think of them on the spot... so let's wake up here.... or can someone please turn off the lights when they leave????????????

    I thought they were still touring but haven't seen them listed for any dates closer to me...New York is quite a haul from Iowa...

    As for a couple of the others I have listed the Kaiser Cheifs will probably be touring sometime soon since they have been promoting new tunes...and the ever present rumor of a Kinks tour still comes up every now and again...

    concert wish list

    I have always had a short wish list for must see concerts:

    Todd Rundgren
    Toad the Wet Sprocket
    Tears for Fears
    Aimee Mann
    Talk Talk
    Sonic Youth


    I may luck out this summer as both Todd and Toad are going to be in Wisconsin. Tears, sonic, and Aimee are all possible yet, but Hollis and Talk talk are tough to find. And I'll take a fixx concert anytime I can.
    I'm drivin' in my car, I used to be able to walk this far

    I keep thinking of more, list is getting too long

    ABBA, Alice in Chains (w/Starr & Staley)
    Anita Baker, Beatles, Bee Gees, Chris Botti
    Bobby Caldwell, The Cure
    Depeche Mode
    Echo & The Bunnymen
    Foo Fighters
    Peter Gabriel, Genesis (w/Phil Collins), Stan Getz
    Michael Jackson
    Bob Marley, Pat Metheny
    Pink Floyd (without/after Roger Waters), The Police, Prince
    David Sanborn, Soundgarden (or any w/Chris Cornell)
    Talking Heads, Paul Taylor, Justin Timberlake
    U2, Usher
    Kim Waters, The Who
    Yes (with Trevor Rabin)

    There are a ton of rap & hip hop artists I love, but I donít care for all the improv. & distortion Iíve seen on their TV live performances. Not meant as a diss, but itís just not the same.

    I don't know what I just said or why.

    Chris Botti is definitely worth whatever price you have to pay to get in to see him. One of the best shows I've been to in a long time.

    Queen
    Jeff Buckley
    Ultravox
    XTC

    I've been pretty lucky - have seen pretty much all my other faves - some by surprise. I got to see Squeeze when they opened for Fleetwood Mac and I didn't know they were playing 'til I was at the show! I was jumping up and down and most of the other people in line were wondering who they were.
