Went to a Jerry Lee Lewis concert once. Someone asked him to play XXX,  he slammed the lid down over the keyboard and loudly announced: "if you don't like what I'm playing get the hell out!"  In about ten minutes, he was alone in the hall with his piano.
"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.

"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."
- J. R. R. Tolkien

Yeah, I saw Joe Cocker once.  Horrible.  He was so chemically altered I'm not sure he even knew where he was.

Had a similar experience with Warren Zevon.

The Kinks’ Dave Davies will return to the road this April with a tour of the northeastern quarter of the U.S. The nine-date trek opens April 9th in Collingsworth, New Jersey and runs through April 21st in Chicago, Illinois.

Along the way, the guitarist will perform Kinks classics as well as tracks from his 2018 LP Decade, a collection of unreleased songs that Davies recorded in the 1970s.

Davies also dropped a promo video for the April trek, featuring the Kinks’ “I Got You” and footage from the upcoming concert film Dave Davies: Strangers...

Concerts are not pleasant when you are on the Autism Spectrum but those were exceptions.

Last one I saw: Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver at the Mountains of Music 2018. Great show and they gave us seats up front.

Me, too. I had high hopes for Zevon’s show - really disappointed.

King Crimson, 2017 tour.  They're really strict on protecting digital distribution of their music, but there's a few authorized videos out there.  Certainly the tightest band I've ever seen, and run the gamut from progressive metal to orchestral rock.
