Eh, went to high school with her but don't remember her all too well so she couldn't have been that hot back then. I have a pretty good memory of those girls that were hot back then. Perhaps I should dig up one of the ole yearbooks.

It's quite possible, but there was a distinct period of post-HS, pre-implant Eva that was really hot.

Biggie

Sinatra

Interesting that so many people have said Rachmaninoff, particularly since many think Horowitz played the Third better. There is something to be said, of course, of seeing the master tame the beast. I saw Yefim Bronfman perform the Third this past summer - amazing.

Pavarotti. Too late...

Pantera. I don't know that I'd want to see them now, but I would have loved to have seen them when I was a teenager, or maybe my early 20s. Of all the really heavy bands I liked back then, Pantera was the only one I never saw live.

Also, the usual suspects: Hendrix and The Who in particular.

Yes. I keep hoping they'll actually do a reunion tour so I can see them. They are probably the top band on my "I was alive and a fan when they were touring, but I still managed to miss them and it kills me" list.

I did see Tom Morello when he did the first Nightwatchman tour, and I got to meet him during a meet-and-greet. That was pretty cool.

I wouldn't mind seeing Elvis in Vegas. If you could cherry pick the best shows, I bet he was really on a few times.

Michael Jackson, early Thriller era. I saw an interview with Jimmy Jam once and he was commenting on Prince as a live performer. He said he was the second best he'd ever seen. After Michael. His tone suggested that, yes, Prince is very special, but Michael is something else entirely.


Jeff Buckley on the Grace tour in a small bar in Dallas. This show was so poorly promoted that reps from Sony were out in the street giving tickets away to passers by. When I told them I'd bought my ticket weeks ago, they took my address and sent me a bunch of promotional materials and a CD in gratitude. They ended up filling the club with a bunch of Mexican dishwashers and businessmen and frat guys that were wandering around Deep Ellum. There were about 15 actual fans (including Eric Stoltz, who was shooting a movie in Dallas) near the stage and about 75 of these randoms talking loudly in the back. Buckley and his band came out and set up on stage amid the general chaos and inattention. He was so fucking cool - his hair was hanging down into his eyes. he was wearing a long fur coat and he looked totally high. He walked up to the mic, he shrugged the coat off his shoulders and if fell down to the floor, and he started singing the first verse of Mojo Pin a cappella with most of the crowd making a racket and ignoring the stage. By the end of the verse, the whole bar was totally silent and staring at the stage, jaws agape. That was the most unreal demonstration of stage presence I've ever seen.


Sooo jealous of the Jeff Buckley experience. I got goosebumps just reading this. +1 on Elvis and definitely the Rat pack in their day. I had bought tickets to the Zepplin show for Chicago when Bonham died.
