just thinking

Jumping around Face Book this morning reminding me of my youth and the Rock shows I have seen. My first 2 were with Betsy, a dear dear friend (life's circumstances lead to many great friendships.) Well my 3rd show was Styx, the Paradise Theater tour. It was a date with a girl I had met, and I can't even remember her name. Thinking it was Lisa, I remember she smoked cherry tobacco in a pipe...
So any how, the show was awesome, one of the better rock shows I have seen. I saw Styx twice (second time was better).

I think the only show I saw that was close to that good would have been the night I went to the Aerosmith show at River Bend. That was a double bill including Ted Nugent.
As I think back I do remember some not so famous shows I have attended also. Here in Blue Ash (just a few miles away) the city has a summer concert series you can attend for free. I saw a Steely Dan tribute band there and the show was great.
Thinking about it I remember there were some pretty good shows I saw for free, including Heart, Kansas and the second time I saw Styx.
