I am so proud to see Junior Brown on that list!

George said...

Junior Brown is pretty wild. However, from my experience, I think the best artist or group concert to experience live is Barenaked Ladies. Those Canadians can rock!

Kyle said...

I once stood outside the Hard Rock Cafe in Orlando while the Barenaked Ladies wailed inside.

I can only wish I'd seen Rich Mullins in concert before he died.
Any chance you taped any of them and are willing to share?
Thanks!

I WISH! I only saw him once, in Chattanooga, doing a concert at some church. I had some Altanta friends in college who saw him several times. They got me hooked on him back in 1986, when we were college freshmen. A songwriter friend of mine, Lowell Alexander, even used to be Rich's roommate, in the early '80's. My old college band used to cover "A Few Good Men" from his first album. It was a fun tune to do and always got the crowd on their feet. That guy could really write some good stuff. I can't wait to get to Heaven and find out what he's come up with lately.

Wow! You have horrible taste in music or at least concerts

George,
I'd love it if you could ask around and find a Rich Mullins tape. I am willing to pay for it, should you find something.
I do not have the Few Good Men sheet music. Sorry!

By the way, I think your taste in music is just fine, lol!
And I love your pic and the Holy Crap comment. Funny!

I am surprised you omitted the Ray Charles/Chuck Mangione concert in Nashville that you and Jennifer took me to!
