Share whatever you want of the milestone

Oct. 2nd 1974. The New York Dolls and Lynyrd Skynyrd in Springfield, Missouri in what Was a bowling alley but I think itís a Church now on Glenstone. Not too far from chestnut expressway. They both blew my mind. Opened up possibilities.

Ozzy Osbourne, Ultimate Sin Tour, summer 1985 Omaha Civic Auditorium. Blue Oyster Cult opened. I remember when Ozzy appeared onstage. The lights were down and they were playing that song from The Omen (Requium something or other) and then Jake E Lee rips into the opening riff for Bark at the Moon and this cage that was elevated above the stage has like a curtain around it. The curtain drops, and Ozzy is sitting in the cage, hands held out as the cage lowers. When it touches the stage, huge columns of flames shoot up and he jumps up and starts singing...

"Screeeeams break the silence
Waking from the dead of night
Vengeance is boiling
He's returned to kill the light
Then when he's found who he's looking for
Listen in awe and you'll hear him
Bark at the moon"

I was blown away. There I was, 14 years old, and I'm seeing live and in the flesh the guy who I've seen on TV and in posters...it was surreal, awesome, and solidified my love of heavy metal.

GOD...I miss the 80's...

October 26, 1983 I saw AC/DC in Kemper Arena, wearing my home made concert t-shirt and rocking out in the nosebleed seats with my best friend. I was 13 years old, and my parents trusted my older brother to just drop us off and pick us up when it was over.

I remember a ton of skanky chicks, sketchy Mike Damone-looking dudes hanging outside trying to scalp tickets, and then the biker gang sitting next to us smoking weed all night.

They played For Those About To Rock as the encore, and I about shit myself.

Johnny Dare's Bday Bash at Sandstone in 2000 or 2001, I believe? POD, Nickelback, Mudvayne, Three Doors Down - a strange collection of acts. My parents took me and a friend of mine. We were in 6th grade.

1968 Vanilla Fudge at the Armory in St. Petersburg, Florida, I was 18. First civic center show was Deep Purple or Jethro Tull, both were the summer of '72 at Savannah Civic Center. Vanilla Fudge had just appeared on Ed Sullivan Show the week before, and their hit "You Keep Me Hangin On" was probably the hardest song ever at that time. If you're not familiar, it's the song playing in the last big action scene in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood movie. Here's the Ed Sullivan appearance. Carmen Appice on drums.

That was mine as well, at Municipal Auditorium in KC. I believe Black Oak Arkansas opened for them.

STYX 1973, Mcdonald Arena, SMSU Campus, Springfield, Mo. I was 12 yrs old, had floor seats with a buddy and took a hit off of every joint that was passed to me.
The first time the guy next to me turned to pass a joint he stopped, gave me the eye, shrugged and gave it to me.:-)
Good thing I only lived about a block away. I was high as a kite by the time the concert was over.

Just to give you an update since I know you're a Chicagoan now.....98.9 STILL has Candlebox in the daily rotation, haha (and that's why Pandora, SiriusXM and YouTube are so popular anymore).
