Love Me My Live Music

I saw this on Anonymous Coworker's site today and couldn't wait to rip it off and bring it to my little blog. Anyone who wants to play along - please do!

Copy this list, leave in the bands you’ve seen perform live, delete the ones you haven’t, and add new ones that you have seen until you reach 25. An asterisk means the previous person had it on their list. Two asterisks means the last two people who did this before you had that band on their list.

Here’s my list (in no particular order and just because they are on the list doesn't mean these were my favorite shows, they're just all I can think of this morning):

1. David Cassidy (yeah, what of it.......)

2. The B-52’s** (it was during college......and I think I was there.....)

3. Todd Rundgren / Utopia / Kasim Sulton (duh)

4. Duran Duran (I will always be a teeny-bopper at heart.)

5. Queen (both incarnations, but I made out with a boy during the 1st version & kinda missed it)

6. Paul Rodgers (smoooooth)

7. Tears for Fears (one of my very favorite shows ever)

8. Bon Jovi (arena rock rocks!)

9. The Pretenders (another college show.....but I have a better recollection of this one)

10. The New Cars (duh, again)

11. Celine Dion (I know, I know....there goes my cool factor)

12. Collective Soul (phenomenal)

13. No Doubt (she's simply incredible live.)

14. Mae (okay, so I've got a little emo in me....be gentle.)

15. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers (how can you go wrong with TP & the HBs?)

16. Green Day (didn't Billie Jo make my "list" before?)

17. Matchbox 20 / Rob Thomas (KP & I crashed their hospitality suite!)

18. Cheap Trick (too many times to count)

19. John Mayer (I think I'm still melting.......)

20. Melissa Etheridge (I went alone. I had no idea I'd be the only straight female there!)

21. Elvis Costello (coolest geek I've ever seen)

22. Van Halen (both incarnations)

23. Meat Loaf (duh, once again)

24. Jonny Lang (That's MISTER Jonny Lang, thankyouverymuch.)

25. Aerosmith (yowza, how do they do it at their ages???)

Come on, join the fun! Try not to cheat by looking at your ticket stubs or iPod library.

I'll let you have David Cassidy AND Duran Duran, but Celine Dion? We might have to not ever talk again.

Cruiser, I'm with ACW...Celine Dion? I don't even want to know how much you paid (wasted) for the ticket either...

If I count a couple LAME christian concerts that would put my total up to 7. I don't get to play your game :(. But to make you feel better I'll list them and they can make fun of me too.

Creed (beginning drunk phase)
Toby Keith

AND drum roll to commence making fun of me.......................................Mariah Carey - Butterfly

OK, I saw Collective Soul on the DirecTV concert series thingy and they were sooooo good. I can't imagine how good they would be in actual person!
