Post a video of a musical act you saw in real life.

If music were food, I'd have a garbage can for a stomach!

On edit: I see someone beat me to Rush's Tom Sawyer, so I substituted Warrior Soul, who did a concert in 1993 on Staten Island NYC that I've never forgotten.

14. Only because I have seen this live do I believe it is possible

What Clapton and Hendrix are/were to the 6 string electric guitar, Leo Kottke is to the 12 string.

If I hadn't seen this with my own eyes, I would never have believed there was only one person playing here instead of three:

26. On youtube somewhere

My brother turned me on to Kottke in 1971. I first saw him live in 1972. I was hooked for life. Went out, bought a few Guild 12 strings. Then, when I got a job that involved travel, I sought out the guy who built his guitars for a while, Božo Podunavac, and had Božo build me 8 or 9 guitars over the years as I could afford them. Four of the are unique custom models made just for me. Božo is in his 80s now, and is back in Florida, retired for the 15th time. I still have all those guitars he made for me. These were the last two: a matching pair. I still can't play like Kottke, but I got maybe halfway before I gave up trying to be his clone.

29. A friend turned me on to Leo Kottke in '73 or '74 and I was convinced that he was an old man...

.
.
.
... and I was also convinced... CERTAIN... that he had 3 or more hands.
.
.
.
Look for the YouTube videos of he and Michael Hedges playing together onstage!!!

34. I've seen most youtube videos of Kottke

Including the ones with Hedges (and Doc Watson and Chet Atkins, and and and).

I remember in 1972, when he was 27, he had this baby face that made him look 17, and it REALLY didn't compute with his deep speaking voice.

He was the lead act for the Mavishnu Orchestra, and 99% of the people there had come to see McLaughlin, Cobham and Hammer, but Kottke left a huge percentage of the audience absolutely blown out of their seats.

37. I had the good fortune to meet him at a party in Minneapolis in '72

 

He didn't play, just a social occasion. I was with a college friend who was also a very good guitarist. I didn't say much, just listened and absorbed. What a nice man to meet.

44. Lucky you!!

He professes to be rather a private man, so meeting him in such a situation must be a rare occasion, especially for those who know how important he has been in the history of guitar music. I get so many comments about hanging with Clinton, Dean and Obama--I would love the chance to chat with Leo Kottke!!

I was a Marine stationed on Oahu '59-'62, and went to this concert.
Sorry no live video.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=lcZkcLp1LAQ

Could barely hear him for all the teenys screaming and fainting.
This you tube clip sounds just like where I was standing.
What a disappointment.

21. Black Flag, where I suffered as collateral damage



Still remember it less as a concert and more as street fight between the audience and Henry. He pushed a guy into me, and I tripped over someone behind me. Fell on a misplaced stool, which gashed the back of my hand somehow. Why there was furniture present at an all ages show remains a mystery to me to this day.

22. I see a lot of big names, but there is a less known group I would like to mention.

They are not for the faint of heart. They are the rough and tumble "Piss Broke Rebels". I would suggest " Missin' The Gas" if you want to YouTube them.

They help to feed my rebel side.

31. Elton John, the same year as this recording, in a small theatre-in-the-round. He came out by...

.
.

... himself and played this and "Your Song" and one other pretty ballad -- and then
the other two in his power trio came out and they burned the fucking place down.

We saw this song live at our show and there is a youtube link of the tune at that show but it is of poor quality. If you are interested you can see it at youtube. The August 2011 show at the Fraze Pavilion in Kettering, Ohio. At that show, cameras were not allowed and in the bootleg you don't even see Dylan.

the drummer while continuing to sing. Everyone was saying who IS that?! Amazing.

43. Janis Joplin, Fillmore East 1969.

Right after she broke up with Big Brother. Went there disabled. The music was so loud you couldn't hear it- it just went through you.


And another:

Saw Roy Buchanan at a roadhouse outside of Baltimore in the early 70s. He spent half his time with his back turned to the audience...

45. Here are a few spanning a few decades

As a 15 year old, I got snuck into being the bassist for a group backing up these guys:


We also backed up this group (I was too young to be a member of the musicians' union, so I hid in the back of the stage):

Getting some bass tips from Larry Taylor! Henri Vestine was still lead guitarist in those days.

A few years later, while getting some training in the Boston area, we got taken to see these guys:


Many decades later I was at the recording of this (they never tour, so it was a rare occasion), and got lay down the guitar tracks!:
