Your Must-See-Before-They-Die List

The Bob Dylan Show, ohhh myyy, three for the price of one!

The Bob Dylan Show, ohhh myyy, three for the price of one!

I have been compiling a list of performers I must see before they die for several years now.  The Eric Clapton Crossroads Guitar Festival took care of a few of the big ones for me; namely B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Willie Nelson, Robert Cray, Robert Randolph and The Family Band, Steve Winwood and, of course, Eric Clapton himself.  I still have Dylan on the list.  As crappy a performer I believe him to be, I don’t want to miss out.  Years from now, I don’t want to feel envious and left out when Dylan does die (or just disappears without a word) and everyone who ever saw him comes crawling out to say, “I saw him at such and such venue, mumbly and blahdeblah.”  I wanna be one of those douchebags!

Well, it looks like I will get my chance to cross Dylan off my list in a couple months.  I just bought tickets to The Bob Dylan Show. There is nothing so awesome as a summer concert, the smells and sounds and the energy.  Once I get my time machine working, I can go see a Jeff Buckley show, Bo Diddley, Janis Joplin, The Beatles, The Velvet Underground, Louis Armstrong and a whole pile of before-my-time acts.

    Live music is always such a disappointment to me that I do not have a list.

    I hope you have fun.

    This should be a great show! Have fun! Kind of like a small Farm-Aid. But I’m guessing each performer will have full sets.

    As far as a list is concerned, I don’t get away as much as I used to and no one ever seems to come up into my neck of the woods, so a list would just prove to be a disappointment and an exercise in futility. But I will mark Pearl Jam.
