Fantastic list! You are a definite music lover. But Os, honey, really? Were you just trying to slip that Aaron Carter in on us in the middle, in hopes that no one would notice? ;) Love ya!

Great list. I wish I had kept better track of the shows I've seen.

Cheeky Minx said...

I'm with the others, fabulous list! Funnily enough, I started my own not that long ago.

You have so many amazing artists, but I want to cry over Ella and Dizzy. You lucky, luck man. I need to move to the States... xx

i must have missed dizzy in the list. i agree with Cheeky regarding Ella, and am adding Diana to the *jealous* list.

i'm not much of a show go-er. i prefer the intimacy of garage/jam sessions.

we had a mannheim steamroller amongst the john denver vinyls. ;)

I've seen Skinny Puppy.

A few more, but you know? I've never been a big concert-type person. The most recent was a Red Hot Chili Peppers tribute band and they were GOOD!

My BT will die of jealousy that you've seen Jethro Tull and Pearl Jam :P
