16 jan 2007, 09:34You would think that there could at least be a short delay in the subscriber profile like there is in the music charts.
It didn't waste any time updating my age, dammit! :-P
And TECHNICALLY, it's incorrect . . . until 1:45 PM cst, so there! :-P

12 jan 2007, 05:21The one-two combination of the death of Jerry Garcia and the arrival of the former L.A. Rams NFL franchise to St Louis kinda changed my direction for several years.
I had stopped playing gigs in the Fall of '94 . . . and just didn't have the same zest for music in general, THEN Jerry died. :-(
I discovered a similar "big event" atmosphere, albeit completely different from a concert type of culture, at that first Rams home game, and that kinda scratched the itch, not to mention, was very expensive! ($1000 per seat for the right to buy season tickets and $350 per season (until they won that Superbowl (YAY!)then it got REAL expensive) The only concerts I think I went to was in '97 (Styx w/ Pat Benetar . . . in the rain at a venue I HATE . . . I SO didn't wanna go, but, I was sweet on this girl and all . . . and in '98 saw The Other Ones and although it was amusing the see Phil Lesh singing "Mississippi Halfstep", I was very underwhelmed, even in combination with my very last attempt at enjoying that funny small printed perforated paper square . . . didn't work that way . . . haven't done THAT since . . . or several years before then, come to think of it.
But lets face it. No Jerry? No Dead. It disgusted me to no end when some members of the Grateful Dead masqueraded as The Dead with Joan Osborne (whom I really like, but . . .) singing the Jerry Songs. Hell, I'm still pissed about that! (I didn't realize how much until I was typing this)
My life in general was going in a direction that didn't support any real musical involvement, mine or anyone else's. I wasn't healthy - was in complete denial about it . . . and was more interested in just going to the tavern and getting drunk and forgetting everything, if but for a short while.
So that was the end of the "Musical Era" of my life, if I even pondered it at all then.(I did). I didn't even own an instrument from '95-2001. Little did I know what was around the corner!
Oh yeah! I saw Garth Brooks in the late in '96 (I was the only one a buddy of mine could find with a car and money for beer!) Had a great time too . . . I've never been into country music, but, Garth puts on a fantastic show! The encore, much to my amazement was Cat Steven's "Wild World" and *gasp* THE song that awakened me musically, at 5, "American Pie".

2 jan 2007, 07:49I suppose since I started this concert thing, I should at least try to finish it.
1980 - Superjam '80 - Busch Stadium (Sammy Hagar, Journey, Judas Priest, 2 others . . cant believe i forgot) Was well over 100 degrees that day . . the people I went to the concert with made a white on red banner that said "Sammy's Best Fuck The Rest" and at one point they got it to the stage and sammy held it up for all to see . . . Journey was particularly irritating. Watching steve perry prance around the stage like a pickle smoocher in the heat was dissappointing along with NO music from the "pre-infinity" era.
(speaking of Busch Stadium (The Old One) while surfing for more info about who played at SJ'80, I came accross this . . . those from the "where did ya go to highschool?" town will get a kick out of this, I'm sure :
1981 - Shooting Star (Kiel Opera House)
- Van Halen (Arena)
- ELO (Arena)
1982 - no concerts, but, in '82 I played my first bar! "The Filling Station" on the south side somewhere. I was 17 and got SERVED as well as played! Heh.
1983 - Neil Young (Solo) (Keil Auditorium)
- Eric Clapton (w/ Ry Cooder) (Keil Auditorium)
1984 - Yes (I think it was at The Arena)
1985 - Steppinwolf & The Guess Who (San Antonio arena where the NBA Spurs play . . . was very dfisappointed in The Guess Who, as there was no Burton Cummings or Randy Bachman)
1987 - Pink Floyd (The Arena - St Louis)
1988 - Grateful Dead (4 shows at Alpine Valley, E Troy, WI)(June)
- Grateful Dead (Buckeye Lake, Hebron OH)(July)
- Grateful Dead (4 shows Capital Center, Landover, MD)(Sept)
- Grateful Dead (Reunion Arena, Dallas TX)
1989 - no concerts that year, however I played at a very small one, "Woodstock Fast Forward" at Keiner Plaza in downtown St Louis in August. The promoter printed up Tshirts for the event . . . I've actually seen my name on a 'concert shirt'! *it was misspelled! lmao*
There's more, I'm sure. I'll add as I remember.
