Best concert you ever saw....

CSN - not a great show, but by far the best sound I have ever heard live.

Grateful Dead at Squaw Valley. Late 80's maybe? It was awesome. I actually came across the concert by accident. We we're hiking in the area, popped over a ridge and there beneath us were thousands of people lounging in the high meadows of Squaw Valley resort listening to the Dead grooving at 8200' They were set up at the bottom of the bowl and the music carried forever. I have no idea of how many people attended, but it did make the news that it took like 8 hours for everyone to hike down the mountain that night. They had to turn on the ski lights.

For a small club gig, a couple of the best I have seen were:

Dicky Betts', Berry Oakley's and Robby Krueger's sons formed a band (don't remember the name, it was B.O.K., or something like that). I wouldn't be surprised if Derek Trucks was in it too.

Another one was when a friend of mine was playing at the same club in '95 and Buddy Miles (drummer in Hendrix's Band Of Gypsies) sat in. Started with 'Them Changes' and then they did a whole lot of Hendrix. Still makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck and arms. Miles was interviewed a couple of weeks later and when he was asked about Greg, he said "He's the best guitarist I have played with in 25 years." Greg does clinics for Fender, played at Clapton's Crossroads Festival last summer, does clinics and writes method books for Hal Leonard Publishing. www.gregkoch.com

Summer of '82 or '83; Gary Wright, Lynard Skynard, Peter Frampton and Yes. A full day of outdoor concert fun.
24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.

Winter of '77 ...The WHO in S.F. The opening band was a (then) little known group...Lynard Skynard. They brought the place down!
The WHO started out great, but had to stop when Keith Moon passed out on his drum kit. They pulled a drummer out of the audience to finish the set.
