There is an incredible book by Dave Marsh, The Heart of Rock & Soul: The 1000 Greatest Singles Ever Made. It's terribly biased and limited by the dates of 1954 to 1989 (publication date), but well worth a look by any rock fan, especially older lugs like me.

Throw in Bolton, put them all on one stage, and you have the four horsemen. My real favorite 100 would be just about everything by the The Beatles except Penny Lane and All You Need is Love. And I don't care too much for their early stuff either. All post-Rubber Soul.

this may be more for the confession thread, but what about music you liked/concerts you went to when you were young that you are wholly embarrassed by now...

I'll start with a concert: Great White and Firehouse (lived in a small town, if a non-country band showed up that you'd heard of, you went dammit).

Back on topic I love everything on The Smashing Pumpkins' Siamese Dream album, particularly "Soma"

"Geek U.S.A." off that album.

How about great concerts?

How's this, 1991, NYC, the Pumpkins and Red Hot Chili Peppers and the openers (and this is before they blew up) Pearl Jam.

I felt bad for the Pumpkins...Pearl Jam had people going nuts (and NO ONE knew the songs yet). So the Pumpkins play an ok set, then the Chili Peppers rip it up.

Left the show knowing I was gonna buy the Pearl Jam, realizing the Peppers kick unholy ass live, and that the Pumpkins were studio. Nothing wrong with that (try going to a Pavement show when they were stoned out of their gills) but they left a bitter taste in my mouth.

Great concerts:

The first live show I ever saw was Queen's "Play The Game" tour in 1980. Nazareth was the opener.

Queen was a magnificent live act, and even though I was only ten at the time, I still remember every detail about that show.

The greatest show I've ever seen, though, was Peter Gabriel on his "So" tour. An amazing theatrical experience.

Sadly agree about the Pumpkins live show, was truly, truly disappointed when I saw them after Melancholy came out. The Peppers in concert are fucking amazing. Best time I've ever had at a show. Never saw Nirvana, wish to God I had (I'm a Seattle guy). Sonic Youth are good. No Doubt (believe it or not) were a hell of a lot of fun, but this was when they were more ska and less straight up pop. Everclear is fucking horrible live, but still a fun show (can't entirely explain why, maybe because I was kinda fucked up when I saw it). I've never seen Pearl Jam...bizarre. They are playing at The Gorge (in Washington State) this year, but I can't go. I'm pretty bummed about that.

I was able to see Pearl Jam when they were touring with Neil Young in the early 90s. A great one-two punch.

Radiohead in Boston, outdoors.

I missed the '92 Lollapalooza, but I did manage to see the lineup with Primus, Alice In Chains, Babes In Toyland, Rage Against The Machine, Blind Melon, Front 242 and more. Pretty damn good.

I saw the Chilli Peppers, Pearl Jam, and Nirvana together in Del Mar at the end of '92. Fucking amazing show. Saw the Primus/AIC palooza too...in LA. That show was nuts.

"Going Gone", Black Eyed Peas with Jack Johnson on the new Monkey Business release. I could listen to that on loop all day.

Was the 92 Lollapalooza the one with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam? I saw that one in Houston and don't remember much. The next night it was Metallica and Guns and Roses in the Astrodome. We were in the pit and it was insane. I left the town with an incredible hangover and new piercings that I'm still wishing would heal.

I saw Radiohead on the very first tour, when they released Creep for the first time in the UK and it flopped. Rereleased it later and had a hit.
They were awesome, playing the univeristy of Glamorgan, on the self-same stage I played on a bunch of times during that period. I found out later a band I played with almost got a call to open for Radiohead that night, but the Uni made a decision not to. Damn, I could have said I supported Radiohead.
I have other Radiohead stories from that era, involving a bass player who looked like a muppet and large amounts of LSD. Ahhh, those were the days.
At about the same time saw Oasis on their first tour, only went because some girls we knew were going as they were determined to sleep with the singer. They ended up with the drummer (you know you are a hot band when even the drummer is scoring multiple college chicks), that was the drummer who was later fired.
To end up my pointless ramblings, I also remember a friend of mine bumping into Slash and Axl outisde some gig before they were huge (I can't even remember, I think they were supporting someone else at the time), my friend didn't have a pen, so he got Slash to burn a hole in his t-shirt with a Smokey Thingie. A very cool momento, but nobody believes you when you show them a burn in a T-Shirt and tell them the guitarist of the biggest band on the planet did that.

An amazing display of endurance going to both of those shows on back to back nights. How was the pit for the Lollapalooza show?

I saw the Metallica/G N'R tour as well from the upper decks at the Meadowlands. Even from all the way up there Metallica was phenomenal...and then Axl got booed off the stage about an hour into G N'Rs set. Pity the fools who opened up for Metallica in their prime.

I did Lollapalooza I, III, and V.

DAMN! But now you can tell the story of almost opening up for Radiohead...almost as good, no?
