MEMORIES OF A COMPULSIVE CONCERT CONNOISSEUR:

AC/DC---Does it get any LOUDER than this??? Cannons fired, the huge bell bonged, bad boy ANGUS boogied. Shortly after BACK IN BLACK took over the world, when BRIAN JOHNSON still had full power of his nasty rasp. RONNIE MONTROSE's post-MONTROSE band GAMMA opened.

ADAM ANT---ADAM gone successfully solo from THE ANTS, with axeman MARCO PIRRONNI thankfully retained, and a hoppin' horn section added for "brass-kickin'" goodness. With virtualy unknown openers INXS, tho' that would change pretty quickly.

AEROSMITH---On their so-called BACK IN THE SADDLE tour of the early 80s, a test drive before their huge, tho' dumbed down rebirth. TYLER was in fine voice (not always the case), and the first four classic albums made up most of the show. Opening act? Who needed one?...

THE ALLMAN BROTHERS---Their last tour with guitarist DICKIE BETTS, who wrung out a beautiful 11 minute jam of BLUE SKY. New band member DEREK TRUCKS' talented wife SUSAN TEDESCHI guested for a three song set.

AMERICA---This long standing duo of DEWEY and GERRY didn't disappoint with their grabbag of 70s folk pop hits. Chuckles all around as GERRY prefaced a mid-set tune with: "...and here's another in the category of "Wow, they did THAT ONE too?'"

THE B52'S---Truly a PARTY OUT OF BOUNDS, this jerky/quirky day-glo pinata stuffed with hits, kitsch, and glitz. ZIGGY MARLEY opened with a warmly received set of BOB-channeled "riddums".

PAT BENATAR---Pat's always been a helluva voice wallop packed into a perky package. Local legend LISA GUYER opened with ex-BOSTON guitarist BARRY GOODREAU lending a hand.

BAD CO.---First the BRIAN HOWE version from the 80s, much too bland and mainstream for my tastes. Fortunately, I caught the original four-tet's only official reunion (late 90s), with PAUL RODGERS' glorious yowl front and center, as should be. The man put the "bad" in BAD CO. No encores...geezo, a FREE tune or two woulda been nice. DAVID LEE ROTH opened, and in spite of my low expectations, rose to the occasion ridin' an hour long set naturally heavy on VAN HALEN warhorses. The kid effortlessly whippin' out EDDIE's old licks looked too young to even drive.

THE BEACH BOYS---The last time the classic lineup of the three WILSON boys, MIKE LOVE, and AL JARDINE ever toured together, early 80s. Troubled guru BRIAN had emerged from his foggy exile for the occasion, but possibly should have stayed in bed. Still overweight and clearly confused, the low point was when he fell off his piano bench and rolled around on the stage while warbling an off key SURFER GIRL. The others rallied as well as could be expected, given the circumstances. Happily for his legions of fans, WILSON made a more than respectable comeback a couple of decades later.

MILTON BERLE---Who knew this MR. TELEVISION could still be so funny (and dirty!) in the late 70s? His insult schtick reminded me of DON RICKLES. Then again, they say UNCLE MILTIE "stole everything".

MEL BLANC---The "MAN OF 1000 VOICES" on a college lecture tour, a completely charming personality who introduced all the classic LOONEY TUNES characters (and others) he embodied, showed their cartoons, and fielded a hilarious question & answer session, replying, of course, in the guises of BARNEY RUBBLE and DAFFY DUCK.

BLUE OYSTER CULT---"Thinking man's metal" indeed. At a late 70s show, I was all but blown away by their legendary laser light show that would blind the GREEN LANTERN... let alone the music. BEBOP DELUXE (remember them?) started the proceedings. Next time, circa 1980, BOC headlined an outdoor show over ALVIN LEE, DR. HOOK, and MOTT THE HOOPLE spinoff THE BRITISH LIONS. ALVIN LEE delivered his patented brand of screamin' blooze and DR. HOOK wisely stuck to their early, raunchy SHEL SILVERSTEIN-penned class-sicks. The last concert I ever attended where coolers were allowed insie the gates. Sigh...

BOSTON---Appropriately, at BOSTON GARDEN on their maiden tour behind the biggest debut album of the 70s. BRAD DELP hit notes even dogs can't hear. So good I went back again a few years later.

DAVID BOWIE---Rock's chameleon ignored most of his best known radio hits in favor of cult classics at this late 70s Boston Garden gig. Translation: no SPACE ODDITY, no REBEL REBEL, no GOLDEN YEARS. But even obtuse BOWIE is still pretty good BOWIE. CARLOS ALOMAR on axe.

GARTH BROOKS---Biggest hat act in all of 90s country music, with a head to fill it. Pudgey, balding egomaniac swingin' down on a rope over Boston Garden, lookin' for FRIENDS IN LOW PLACES. A twanger who admitted to liking both KISS and BILLY JOEL. Did I mention he put on a great show?...

JIMMY BUFFET---Best part of any BUFFET concert? The party in the parking lot before-hand, natch!...a kooky, colorful combo of MARDIS GRAS, ANIMAL HOUSE, and BEACH BLANKET BINGO. Ask any PARROTHEAD. Oh yeah...JIMMY was terrific too.

GEORGE CARLIN---I'll chalk it up to a rare "off night", but he wasn't as funny as all those record albums and HBO specials. Before he started, CARLIN implored the huge club audience to kindly "keep the smoking down", due to his gig-ravaged voice. I was never a butthead anyway, but few complied to his request, unfortunately. Seemed to set the mood for the whole evening.

THE CARS---At Boston's legendary PARDISE club, where New England legends to be THE CARS were promoting their first (and still best) album. Their set consisted of that entire disc, plus a pair of "preview" tracks from the not yet released follow-up CANDY-O. Opening duo SUICIDE was almost booed off the tiny stage, due to AL VEGA's ultra-confrontational vocals and MARTIN REV's droning synth riffs...but unintelligible, antagonistic punk was the whole point of their act, after all. Booing and cries of "You suck!!" were music to their ears, i'm sure.

CHEAP TRICK---An energetic, hard to dislike band, i caught 'em their way up in a big Boston club, and on their way down 20 years later, in a big NH club alongside 38 SPECIAL.

SHAWN COLVIN---Solo acoustic club show. A charismatic "gal next door" performer who didn't shy away from audience requests, including a BEATLES oldie and a SESAME STREET ditty. She aimed to please.

CONFEDERATE RAILROAD---90s country group who burned out quickly after a few cheeky hits like QUEEN OF MEMPHIS and TRASHY WOMEN. Nonetheless, a solid night of singalong twang shang-a-lang.

CRACKER---Alternative rock's best kept secret performed as an acoustic duo, with singer DAVID LOWRY and guitar slinger JOHNNY HICKMAN serenading the club crowd via old CAMPER VAN BEETHOVEN ditties (from which CRACKER evolved) and reworked CRACKER classics. They were occasionally augmented by members of the opening act, a young bluegrass ensemble called THE HACKENSAW BOYS. An amazing "roots rock" evening. BYOB, no less. Yeehah.

ROBERT CRAY---I've experienced this charismatic blues slinger/soul singer three times, with highly varied sets in each case. In fact, he only played his signature SMOKING GUN at one of these shows! The opening acts were all stellar... Bloozer/rocker/twanger DELBERT MCCLINTON, songwriter to the stars JOHN HIATT, and hyperkinetic blue eyed soulman JAMES HUNTER. Obviously CRAY isn't afraid of a little healthy competition.

CROSBY STILLS & NASH---NEIL YOUNG was better solo than the three of them combined, but still an enjoyable rehash of the expected classics (What? No WOODSTOCK?). STILLS hoarsely spotlighted his non-CSN hits LOVE THE ONE YOU'RE WITH and FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH while NASH trotted out the protest anthem CHICAGO, his most famous solo tune. DAVID CROSBY mostly smiled a lot and provided his usual smooth backing harmonies.

SHERYL CROW---Opening act SEMISONIC (remember CLOSING TIME?) joined her on stage for a sweet, harmony-laden encore of DOBIE GRAY's always classic DRIFT AWAY.

RODNEY DANGERFIELD---When he finally got some respect in the 80s, he was suddenly everywhere...hit movies, TV specials, record albums, even LITE beer commmercials. RODNEY was still gigging too, tho' in classier places like THE CHATEAU DEVILLE where I caught him. I laughed, I shouted out punchlines, I bought the souvenier red tie with NO RESPECT printed on it.

RAY DAVIES---RAY's witty and informative one man show covering the history of THE KINKS (well, at least up to LOLA). Actually, a TWO man show, counting the anonymous axeman that provided estranged brother DAVE's lightning licks. The basis for VH1's popular STORYTELLERS series, which RAY created.

DIAMOND RIO, PATTI LOVELESS, MARTY STUART, TRAVIS TRITT---Every act staked out their own twang turf during this four hour show, with several STUART/TRITT duets among the many highlights.

BO DIDDLEY---Luckily, I caught BO's patented "shave and a haircut" bit at an outdoor blues festival; the lineup also included NILS LOFGREN and GEORGE THOROGOOD. DIDDLEY's band included not one, but TWO middle aged women on bass and piano, which seemed doubly cool. BO was as humorous and cantankerous as you'd expect, and he hammered home the musical goods in a one hour set of testifyin' RNB. High hopes for a BO/GEORGE mash-up never happened, but otherwise, a great day for blooze lovers!

DR. HOOK---Even thought this ragtag 70s ensemble morphed from down 'n dirty twang-rock to slick pop by the 80s, they were still their good ole sleazy selves in person. Frontmen RAY SAWYER and DENNIS LOCORRIERE channeled CHEECH & CHONG crossed with JOHNNY CASH for a set ripe with bad jokes, double entendres, high school hijinx...and last but not least...cool, funky music.

DOOBIE BROTHERS---Saw 'em 3 times over a period of 3 decades and many membership shuffles. The first was my introduction to concerts at the tender age of 14, before I even knew what a "DOOBIE" was. That and my third DOOBIES shows featured rockin'-rollin' frontmen TOMMY JOHNSTON and PAT SIMMONS, the second had blue eyed soulman MICHAEL MCDONALD center stage with PAT. GRAND FUNK's main man MARK FARNER opened for one of the shows.

THE EAGLES---Their last tour before breaking up for the 80s and 90s. 63,000 fans at the YALE BOWL in CONNECTICUT also got openers THE LITTLE RIVER BAND and HEART in the bargain. JOE WALSH was the best part about THE EAGLES; the rest of the band turned in a lifeless performance with little in the way of between song patter. JOE announced he was running for president. I'd certainly vote for him.

ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN---Updated DOORS psychedelia for the 80s punk crowd. Political folkie BILLY BRAGG warmed up the joint.

EXILE, TANYA TUCKER, CHARLIE DANIELS BAND, OAKRIDGE BOYS, ALABAMA---A terrific day of twang titillation...even tho' we stood in ankle deep mud for 8 hours under pouring rain in some NH cow pasture. Now THAT'S country!

JOHN FOGERTY---He'd recently gone back on the road to embrace his old CCR classics, after two decades of ignoring that rich legacy, due to legal battles. From the ominous opening chords of BORN ON THE BAYOU (complete with pre-recorded crickets in the background), this remains one of my fondest concert memories!

FOGHAT---Unfortunately, it wasn't a totally legit lineup either time i saw 'em. First was without frontman LONESOME DAVE, second was with (in a small club, no less!)...one guess which show was better.

THE FOOLS---New England's undisputed class clowns of rock & roll, best experienced in dank, seedy clubs while standing in puddles of cheap draft brewski.

FOREIGNER---Their first American tour, backing their mega selling debut album. They rolled out that entire disc, plus two tunes from their forthcoming DOUBLE VISION. No complaints.

PETER FRAMPTON---Twice, once when he was the biggest star of the year, at Boston garden. Fast forward 20 years, he was opening for fellow classic rockers REO SPEEDWAGON and FOREIGNER.

THE J. GEILS BAND---Hands down, two of the all time mightiest concerts experiences that have ever assaulted my five senses! Over 20 years apart no less. Howlin' PETER WOLF and those badass Boston boys are incapable of leaving an audience disappointed.

GRAND FUNK---MARK, DON & MEL's one and only official reunion (late 90s) was all this grizzled 70s rock fan could hope for and maybe even more. Too bad they couldn't keep it together a little longer...but that's rock & roll comebacks for ya.

THE GUESS WHO---Not some lame JIM KALE-led clone band, but the real deal...RANDY BACHMAN and BURTON CUMMINGS heading up a full scale 2000s reunion (minus KALE, not invited for obvious reasons). Chock full of GW staples and a couple of BTO hits for good measure, the five part vocal harmonies alone were well worth the price of a ticket. ERIC BURDON opened with a strong 60 minute set of weathered, psychedelic soul.

PATTY GRIFFIN---A solo acoustic club gig by this talented, soulful folkie from MAINE...more or less my neck of the woods.

HALL & OATES---Still vibrant blue eyed sousters in the 2000s, but opener KENNY LOGGINS ignored most of his hit catalogue in favor of recently forged, sickly love songs. At least he joined DARYL and JOHN onstage for a few H&O classics at show's end.

JOHN HIATT---Earthy songwriter to the stars, from THREE DOG NIGHT to BONNIE RAITT to B.B. KING. I first saw him open for BOB SEGER, next time he was giggin' solo, and the third time he was co-billed with ROBERT CRAY, with slide guru SONNY LANDRETH in his band to boot. It's doubtful that HIATT ever gave a really bad show.

HUSKER DU---This fierce punk metal trio of the 80s presided over my first (and only) bout of slam dancing witnessed up close and personal. I just stayed the hell out of it.

ELTON JOHN---At MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, with DAVEY JOHNSTONE, DEE MURRAY, and NIGEL OLSSEN, who played on all the 70s chartbusters. This was shortly after JOHN LENNON's death, so YOKO and her young son SEAN appeared onstage at one point. ELTON pulled out his heartfelt tribute EMPTY GARDEN...not a dry eye in the joint! QUARTERFLASH had the thankless task of opening for the master.

TOMMY JOHNSTON---Ex DOOBIES frontman who performed no DOOBIES material the night i caught his act in a tiny club. Well, he threw WITHOUT YOU in at the end, but by then all eleven of the audience members (literally!) had long lost interest.

KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND---People attending a KC show know what to expect...simple, groove-happy, dancefloor music...and they'll get it. 'Nuff said. Get out the platforms.

SAMMY KERSHAW---90s twanger remembered for song titles like QUEEN OF MY DOUBLE WIDE TRAILER and SHE DON'T KNOW SHE'S BEAUTIFUL. A strong fairground show, where all twangers past their expiration date go to die.

KINKS---The last tour of the legendary DAVIES BROTHERS, mid-90s. RAY opened on acoustic guitar for a frothy, fun-filled medley of folky classics including WELL RESPECTED MAN, DEDICATED FOLLOWER OF FASHION, and LAZING ON A SUNNY AFTERNOON, turning the 2000 seater club into a huge, raucous singalong. Then brother DAVE and the rest of the band emerged amid a metal cornicopia of glorious volume, power chords, and feedback for a sanctifying set of KINKS klassiks.

KISS---Caught their act twice, the original foursome both times...accept no substitutes! The first gig (late 70s) featured Detroit's criminally underrated ROCKETS in the opening slot. Next time it was JUDAS PRIEST in the early 80s. ROB HALFORD knows how to make an entrance...he roared onto the stage straddling a huge black Harley. A "special effect" on par with GENE's tongue and ACE's fireworks-shootin' axe.

CUB KODA---THE CUB-master of all things roots-rock. Mr. "SMOKIN' IN THE BOYS ROOM" was virtually a one man show unto himself...emcee/comedian/music historian/singer/guitar strangler. If you didn't have a good time bubba, you just weren't tryin'!

AL KOOPER---His TRIBUTE TO MIKE BLOOMFIELD show was a blooze-heavy delight of material associated with the late guitar legend, who KOOPER often jammed with. Band members included late night TV vets ANTON RIG on drums and JIMMY VIVINO on axe. Ex ROOMFUL OF BLUES belter/harp blaster SUGAR RAY NORCIA jump started the proceedings with a snappy set o' testifyin' RNB.


SLEEPY LABEEF---At over 6 and a half feet and 300 pounds, this loud-as-a-freight-train country rocker boasts a repertoire of rockabilly, RNB, and twanger tunes that numbers in the thousands. When Sleepy uncorks his unearthly bellow and heat-synching licks, watch out!

ALVIN LEE---Former TEN YEARS AFTER axe-meister unleashed the power of the blooze via mind-bogglin' licks, gutbucket vocals, and primal screams worthy of the WICKED WILSON PICKETT.

HUEY LEWIS & THE NEWS---The poor man's J. GEILS BAND, but a solid show when HUEY was king of the 80s. An acapella runthrough of THE IMPRESSIONS' IT'S ALRIGHT spotlighted their RNB roots.

DELBERT MCLINTON---As ROBERT CRAY's opener, this eternally underrated RNB belter extraordanaire blew some mean harp, and more than a few minds with his hearty mix of ballsy blooze, kickin' country, and good ol' rock & roll. Even as he performed, the man signed CDs being passed up from the front row, never missing a note or a beat.

DON MCLEAN---First solo concert i ever attended, in an intimate club the size of a large living room. MCLEAN, who was "UNPLUGGED" years before it became a fad, absolutely KILLED, armed with nothing more than words and an acoustic guitar.

MEAT LOAF---The former MARVIN LEE ADAY blew out both his voice and his load on mega-debut BAT OUT OF HELL in the late 70s, but was in relatively good form for this 90s club gig. Stuff from BAT #1 and its successful (tho drearier) followup BAT #2, virtually ignoring the half dozen still-born albums that came between. An anonymous backing band, none the all star players from his salad days. If MEAT was smart, he'd call 'em HAMBURGER HELPER.

JOHN MELLENCAMP...Hard to believe there was a time when "MR. COUGAR" had long hair halfway down his back. A cool female fiddler, two soulful backup singers, and an accordianist were along for the rootsy ride.

EDDIE MONEY---Blue collar/blue eyed soul from a cat who always looked like he might sleep on your sidewalk after the show.

JAMES MONTGOMERY---Long time New England blooze frontman who delivered the goods both times i saw him. Never a big star, but good enough to gig constantly up my way for the past 30 years.

THE MOVERS---Hot horn band of jumpin' jivers not unlike ROOMFUL OF BLUES. They went on to back New England soul fave BARRENCE WHITFIELD before pulling a vanishing act.

CHUCK NEGRON---One of THREE DOG NIGHT's trio of lead belters, CHUCK did justice to the classics most associated with his voice, including ONE, OLD FASHIONED LOVE SONG, EASY TO BE HARD, and of course, the encore JOY TO THE WORLD.

AARON NEVILLE, DR. JOHN, JOHN FOGERTY---Roots rock triple play at a so-called NEW ORLEANS fest. AARON brought the smooth soul and DR. JOHN brought the funk. FOGERTY's not even from the south, but his earthy swamp rock fit the bill well enough.

AARON NEVILLE, BOOKER T & THE MG'S, SALT N PEPA, MEAT LOAF, TAVARES, VILLAGE PEOPLE, CRASH TEST DUMMIES, LUTHER VANDROSS, ZZ TOP, many others (1994)---Another all day show with most artists merely spotlighting a hit or two, often to pre-recorded backing tracks. Stax legends BOOKER T & THE MG's turned out a 30 minute mix of effective "soul cool" instrumentals. But the real stars came out at night...LUTHER VANDROSS, spendidly decked out in a white tux and backed by a real live 20 piece orchestra, oozed a seductively soulful one hour set, and ZZ TOP shut down the evening with a dozen low-down, bloozey Texas rockers.

NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK, THE O'JAYS, DONNA SUMMER, VICKIE SUE ROBINSON, SHANNON, PETER WOLF, MC HAMMER, EXTREME, STEVEN TYLER, JOE PERRY, PAUL SHCAEFFER, many others (1991)---A huge all day radio station sponsered festival, where most acts only squeezed out a couple of songs apiece. The longer performances included PETER WOLF's heart-stoppin', soulful mix of J. GEILS goodies and MC HAMMER's one hour show-stealin' set backed by a 20 piece ensemble of singers, musicians, and dancers. DONNA SUMMER was accompanied by the always versatile PAUL SHAEFFER & THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS BAND, as were surprise guests STEVEN TYLER and JOE PERRY, who banged out BIG TEN INCH and WALK THIS WAY. Variety was the word of the day.

TONY ORLANDO & DAWN---At Boston Garden, for a Mother's Day show, at the peak of their mid 70s pop charting power.

JOAN OSBOURNE---Immensely talented, tho' wholly underappreciated blue eyed soul belter, who's worked with everyone from MOTOWN legends THE FUNK BROTHERS to THE DEAD. Some of the best RNB pipes this side of JANIS.

THE OUTLAWS & MOLLY HATCHET-Southern rock nirvana, with most of each band's lineup still intact at this late 80s gig.

ROBERT PALMER---His pleasing outdoor set of funk-rock, RNB, and dance music was cut short by a freak rainstorm. Last memory of ROBERT?...the natty one, slippin' and slidin' all over the stage, valiantly trying his darndest to finish ADDICTED TO LOVE.

PRIVATE LIGHTNING---Unsung New England art rockers whose one album was criminally ignored by all but their staunch circle of fans. Their heat-sinkin' live performances showcased leader/axeman PAUL VAN NESS' mind-shifting lyrics and the stage charisma split between sex symbol singer ADAM SHERMAN and perky fiddler PATTY VAN NESS. To know PL was to love PL.

QUEEN---At the absolute peak of their 70s power and pomposity. Sparkling moments included the band playing a short accoustic set while suspended high above the Boston Garden floor, as well as spotlighting a reel to reel tape machine that spit forth the operatic vocal passages of BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY. FREDDIE MERCURY seemed a bit hoarse this night...then again, drummer ROGER TAYLOR always handled their material's most difficult high parts anyway.

BONNIE RAITT, JACKSON BROWNE, DAVID LINDLEY, SHAWN COLVIN AND BRUCE HORNSBY---A memorable ensemble of all the acts sharing the same stage all night, jamming on each others' hits. Master of "all things with strings" LINDLEY preceed the show with his own eclectic set.

ROCKPILE FEATURING DAVE EDMUNDS & NICK LOWE--Retro rockers DAVE and NICK cranked out solo hits and much of their only official album under the collective name ROCKPILE. MOON MARTIN opened but i missed him, damnitall! Ever try to park in Boston?...

ROOMFUL OF BLUES---Neither lineup I saw featured ROOMFUL's greatest frontman SUGAR RAY NORCIA, but the newer singers held their own. Jivin' jump blues and rockin' RNB at its most swingin' from a true New England institution.

SANTANA---When I first saw the band in the mid 90s, CARLOS SANTANA had long helmed a high class oldies act...this time, supported by opening guitar guru JEFF BECK no less (surprisingly, no on-stage jams materialized)...By the early 2000s, SANTANA had fostered an epic comeback on the strength of an all-star duets album that won a ton of GRAMMIES. Buoyed by funked out opener MACY GRAY, CARLOS trotted out the hits old and new, his anonymous singer saddled with the unenviable task of cloning GREGG ROLLIE and ROB THOMAS, among others.

BOZ SCAGGS---First time with THE LITTLE RIVER BAND opening, a nifty all around show. Second time, BOZ was playing the intimate PARADISE club in BOSTON, crooning 30s and 40s standards better than ROD STEWART ever imagined. He also tossed off jazzed down versions of LOWDOWN and MISS SUN for good measure. BOZ is a tasteful guitarist too.

BOB SEGER---The king of Hearland rock, with no 70s SILVER BULLET singalong left unturned. Fellow midwesterner JOHN HIATT opened...one helluva double feature!

THE SMITHEREENS---Rollicking power pop entertainment for a BEER 'n BAR-B-Q blast held at the BUD plant in Merrimac, NH. Does it get any better than this?

RICK SPRINGFIELD---By far the most screamin'-at-the-top-of their-lungs females i've ever been tortured by, and that includes all the FILENE's BASEMENT sales combined. Due to RICK's simultaneous status as bubble-rock maker and soap heartbreaker, a mini-BEATLEMANIA mind-meld was goin' on that early 80s evening. With blessedly subdued opener TOM CHAPIN (HARRY's brother) folkin' out solo on his acoustic guitar.

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN---It's true. Ya really hafta be there in person to fully appreciate the gospel assault of THE BOSS. I was, thus I can testify. For over 3 hours, BRUCE and his mighty E STREETERS mopped up the floor with us. God only knows how many encores that night!

RINGO STARR & HIS ALL STARR BAND #1: LEVON HELM, BILLY PRESTON, CLARENCE CLEMONS, DR. JOHN, RICK DANKO, NILS LOFGREN, JOE WALSH---Memorable for both its lineup of roots rocker legends sharing an outdoor stage together, as well as for BILLY PRESTON's soulful rendition of THAT'S THE WAY GOD PLANNED as a total eclipse took place overhead. LEVON HELM and RICK DANKO dished out bar BAND boogie. JOE WALSH sang a ragged-but-right LIFE IN THE FAST LANE. RINGO served as jovial emcee, sometimes drummer, and slinger of BEATLES oldies. An incredible night of guilt-free nostalgia all the way around.

RINGO STARR & HIS ALL-STARR BAND #2: JOE WALSH, NILS LOFGREN, BURTON CUMMINGS, DAVE EDMUNDS, TIMOTHY B. SCHMIDT, TODD RUNDGREN---And the hits just kept on a comin'. Memorable snapshots include TIMOTHY B. SCHMIDT leading axemasters EDMUNDS, RUNDGREN, LOFGREN, and WALSH in an acoustic singalong/strumalong of POCO's cult classic KEEP ON TRYIN'. BURTON CUMMINGS gave a sweet rendition of THESE EYES alone oh his piano, then rocked the joint with AMERICAN WOMAN, served well by RUNDGREN's RANDY BACHMAN-esque leads. RINGO wasn't on stage as much as the first ALL STARRS tour, but his son ZAK STARKEY manned the skins throughout the show.

STEELY DAN---They rarely performed live in their 70s hey-day, so this turn of the century reunion of BECKER and FAGEN was a must-attend. Numerous highlights included the opening ditty BOSTON RAG as well as a jazzy voyage through their sublime 70s catalogue. DOOBIES alumni CORNELIUS BUMPUS on sax and keys.

ROD STEWART...I caught the rockin' rooster the 70s, in the 80s, and in the 90s. The consumate showman, and the only guy I know would dare rock a pink suit.

THE STOMPERS---Hard workin' Boston bar band helmed by the unflappable SAL BAGLIO. Party time rockin' RNB with an "OH OH OH OH" singalong seemingly worked into every ditty.

STYX---First time was in a large theater to support CRYSTAL BALL (TOMMY SHAW's debut with the band) with pop rockers STARZ starting things off. Second time around, STYX had made it to arena level, after GRAND ILLUSION made 'em superstars.

TAVARES---New England's best known soul siblings were down to a trio (from a 70 s quintet) by the 90s, but still capably dished out 70s soul and pop pleasures like IT ONLY TAKES A MINUTE and HEAVEN MUST BE MISSING AN ANGEL. Unfortunately, their superb covers of HALL & OATES' SHE'S GONE and EDGAR WINTER's FREE RIDE were not revisited.

SUSAN TEDESCHI---New England bred blooze woman who copares favorably to BONNIE RAIIT. A talent to watch...and listen to.

THE TEMPTATIONS & THE FOUR TOPS---Twice in the mid-80s, where the old MOTOWN magic reigned supreme. This was a post-DENNIS EDWARDS version of the TEMPTS, with original members OTIS WILLIAMS and MELVIN FRANKLIN still on board. New frontman ALLIE "OLLIE" WOODSON did a credible job filling both DAVID RUFFINS' and DENNIS EDWARDS' shoes, no mean feat. He also wailed their most recent hits TREAT HER LIKE A LADY and LADY SOUL. Co-headliners were THE FOUR TOPS, all original, with LEVI STUBBS still one of soul's best frontmen. They too were enjoying a comeback hit at the time, WHEN SHE WAS MY GIRL.

GEORGE THOROGOOD & THE DESTROYERS---The big bad boogie man headlined a Rhode Island RNB festival that also featured CHESS RECORDS legend BO DIDDLEY (THOROGOOD's poolroom opponent in his BAD TO THE BONE video). A fine-as-moonshine roots rockin' sets from both student and teacher, and a good day to have "da blooze".

TIL' TUESDAY---Boston's own, starring sweetly cool chanteuse AIMEE MANN, workin' the club scene...they covered THE LEFT BANKE oldie WALK AWAY RENEE that night. Soon after this show, MANN embarked on a respectable solo career.

PETER TORK---Shortly before the MONKEES' surprising 80's resurrection, TORK was slogging it out on the club scene, backed by his (badly named) 80s band THE NEW MONKS. The Pre-Fab Four's least interesting singer (tho' best player) interpersed old MONKEES material...the highlight being YOUR AUNTIE GRISELDA, if that raises any flags...with self-effacing patter and a good natured bluegrass cover of JACKIE WILSON's HIGHER & HIGHER. TORK's latest band is SHOE SUEDE BLUES...yes, a much better name!

STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN---More like RAVE ON. One hiply attired, splendiforous blooze-rockin' assault on all the senses. So glad I went, cuz he didn't get to do too many more gigs after this late 80s appearance.


VILLAGE PEOPLE---What can i tell ya? In the late 70s, disco had taken over and the VILLAGE PEOPLE were playin' the BOSTON GARDEN. The hallowed CELTICS parquay surface was transformed into a dance floor for one night and the backing orchestra was obscured behind a huge opaque curtain. Disco Queen GLORIA GAYNOR set the pace with a groove-humpin' set.

JOE WALSH---Everyone's fave axe-yankin' barnstormer took no prisoners at this (large) club gig, trottin' out JAMES GANG staples and solo singalong faves like ROCKY MOUNTAIN WAY and LIFE'S BEEN GOOD. No EAGLES material was spotlighted, excepting the marvelous IN THE CITY, which they appropriated from WALSH's catalogue to begin with.

MONSTER MIKE WELCH---Not as well knwon as his young upstart blooze peers KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD and JONNY LANG, but a constant on the new England club circuit. Given his "MONSTER" monicker by none other than DAN "ELWOOD BLUES" AYKROYD.

EDGAR WINTER---First time in 1980 at MR. C's ROCK PALACE in Lowell, Mass, where I became a lifelong fan of this multi-talented bloozer/rocker. Encore FRANKENSTEIN was an extended monster jam that shook the rafters that night. A deacde later, EDGAR was paired with old co-hort RICK DERRINGER for a club tour aptly dubbed WHITE LIGHTNING, a play on EDGAR's looks and RICK's licks.

NEIL YOUNG---A solo show in which YOUNG played piano, harmonica, acoustic and electric guitars, and pipe organ, jumping from old fashioned folk to his rock hits and back again. I never saw a show remotely like it and was duly impressed by the amount of variety and entertainment value one man could provide in an evening.

WARREN ZEVON---Another solo show, with ZEVON accompaning himself on piano and guitar, interspersing his quirky setlist with typical wry patter. Most of his macabre mambos turned into loud n' rowdy singalongs; the fans were literally standing on their chairs that nite. Folkie JONATHAN EDWARDS started things off swimmingly.

OLDIES SHOWS:

THE BOXTOPS & THE KINGSMEN---At this nostalgia event from the 90s, a slightly haggard ALEX CHILTON laid down cool MEMPHIS soul sounds backed by an all original BOX TOPS membership. A highly suspect KINGSMEN lineup bounded quickly through a mini frathouse party during the opening slot. I've spent far worse evenings.

LOU CHRISTIE---For a guy who hit big some 30 years before i caught his act at a fairground, LOU was amazingly within grasp of all those difficult high notes required to put across LIGHTNING STRIKES, TWO FACES HAVE I, and RHAPSODY IN THE RAIN. Like most nostalgia artists, his act was peppered with obvious VEGAS-style jokes, anecdotes, and stories.

JOEY DEE & THE STARLIGHTERS---The PEPPERMINT TWISTER himself, backed by anonymous STARLIGHTERS at an 80s fairground show.

THE DOVELLS---A far cry from the original blue eyed soul quintet, this being a low budget oldies show held in the 80s in a small school auditorium. Their dressing room doubled as the MEN'S ROOM, cuz I saw 'em in there primpin' out their afros and admiring their tacky jumpsuits when I went to take a leak. Original lead singer LEN BARRY wasn't on board; in fact, only one DUPREE was left, with a new guy along for the ride! The local four piece band hired to back 'em up gamely chimed in on harmony vocals. Opener/emcee BOBBY LEWIS was much better, pumping out a short set of soul-rock and his one big smash TOSSIN' & TURNIN'...at least BOBBY was who he said he was.

THE DIAMONDS---Lead singer DAVE SOMERVILLE and three hired hands, but they brought back the good ol' days of doo-wop for about an hour this warm summer night. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

THE DUPREES---Like THE DIAMONDS, probably one original member at best. BUT!...I DID get invited along with my buddy MIKE to join them onstage for semi on-key backing doo wop vocals as they covered DION's classic TEENAGER IN LOVE. A stunt pulled at every gig no doubt, but this was my one oh-so- brief, shining moment in the spotlight.

BILLY J. KRAMER, HERMAN'S HERMITS, THE TROGGS, BADFINGER, and GERRY & THE PACEMAKERS---Billed as a 20th ANNIVERSARY OF THE BRITISH INVASION concert in the early 80s, HERMAN'S HERMITS lacked frontman PETER NOONE and BADFINGER was short on two key members (both victims of seperate suicides). BILLY J. started things off with a few BEATLE-esque singalongs, and GERRY MARSDEN closed with his mellow croonings. Overall, a pretty fair disappointment.

PETER NOONE---Speakin' of PETER NOONE, I got to see a REAL HERMAN'S HERMITS show in the 2000s (at a fairground, natch). PETER NOONE's boyish good looks and chirpy vocals helped cleanse my pallette of fake HERMIT backwash.

HERB REED'S PLATTERS---Original PLATTERS bassman HERB REED and a cast of "ringers" plying the oldies circuit, which has been inundated with suspect versions of THE PLATTERS, COASTERS, and DRIFTERS for decades. At least HERB stuck his name out front.

THE VENTURES-Easily the best "oldies show" i ever witnessed! Three outta four original VENTURES played at this 80s club gig where I sat through both hour long sets. Not only did THE VENTURES do their own classics like WALK DON'T RUN and HAWAII FIVE-O, they jammed on EVERYONE ELSE's stuff too...REBEL ROUSER, WIPEOUT, TEQUILA, you name it. I had the pleasure of walking out that night while chatting with the band. Hell, I'd have gladly carried their guitars anywhere!

COVER ME!

Throughout the history of popular music, performers who don't write songs have covered those who do...and even those who DO write occasionally tackle someone else's material. Many artists, at least the better interpreters like ELVIS PRESLEY, JERRY LEE LEWIS, and JOE COCKER made a career out of it. In 1990, an album consisting entirely of BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN cover tunes was released, cheekily named after his hit single COVER ME. The disc contained several bona fide smashes by artists like PATTI SMITH and THE POINTER SISTERS who benefitted from tackling the BOSS' prolific catalogue, as well as sublime efforts from DAVE EDMUNDS, JOHNNY CASH, and BOSS proteges GARY "U.S." BONDS and SOUTHSIDE JOHNNY (notably absent was MANFRED MANN'S EARTH BAND, who scored a chart topper with BLINDED BY THE LIGHT and a further Top 40 hit with SPIRIT IN THE NIGHT). Hundreds of all-covers albums have hit the market since COVER ME by artists in every field of music. In addition, dozens of performers like SPRINGSTEEN have been the subject of so-called tribute albums...CHUCK BERRY, HANK WILLIAMS, THE BEATLES, BOB DYLAN, CAROLE KING, ROBERT JOHNSON, JOHNNY CASH, FRANK SINATRA, MUDDY WATERS, BILLIE HOLIDAY, JIMI HENDRIX...as well as legendary record labels such as MOTOWN, SUN, CHESS, and STAX. I've compiled Top 10 lists of my favorite cover tunes of acts like SAM COOKE, HANK WILLIAMS, and THE STONES; in most but not every case, the artist being covered also wrote the tune. These lists will provide some insight into a performer's influence on their contemporaries...for example, THE BEATLES began life tackling CHUCK BERRY, LARRY WILLIAMS, and CARL PERKINS ditties before LENNON and MCCARTNEY evolved into the most popular songwriters in rock music.
