@sodojka The band I played in was just a 4 guys that went to High School together in the Detroit Area (I grew up just outside of Detroit, Michigan). No one you would have heard of.
As for the concerts, it was 100’s so I’ll just stick to highlights so I don’t bore people. Starting with the bigger names. Pink Floyd, The Who, Rolling Stones , Santana, Queen, Rush, Bruce Springsteen, Bad Company, Aerosmith, Van Halen, Eagles, Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, REO Speedwagon, Foghat, J Geils Band, Jethro Tull, Elton John, Alice Cooper, Bob Seger, Kiss (2 rows from stage at the Olympia), Ted Nugent, Richie Blackmore’s Rainbow, Robin Trower, Yes, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Edgar Winter, Rick Derringer, Cars, Foreigner, etc. I’m leaving out a lot of bands, but I think I’ll stop there unless someone big comes to mind that I missed (I’ll edit the post to include them which I already have done a couple of times).
Best Shows Rush (a great, highly underrated band), Santana, Stones, The Who (1st ever show at the Pontiac Slilverdome - over 80,000 in attendance), Alice Cooper, Queen, Bruce. Elton.
Bands that were good every time I saw them (Just Great Live Performers) - J Geils Band (saw them 5 or 6 times and it was always a party where people were dancing in the aisles). Samr with Foghat. Bob Seger was always good (saw him at least 5 times because he was from the Detroit Area - same with Ted Nugent).
As for bands that I didn’t see that I really wish I would have. Mostly because people died before I had the chance - Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin (I had 4 prime tickets in my hand when John Bonham passed away ), SRV. I didn’t start going to concerts until around 1973 so unfortunately I missed those bands. The Beatles broke up before I ever had a chance to see them. I hope this post isn’t too long/boring
