Concerts I've Attended

One of my favorite theologians is Ben Witherington, a prolific author and professor at Asbury Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky. Lately, he's been on a rock-n-roll nostalgia kick. He's written about his 10 favorites shows, his favorite song writers, favorite guitarists, favorite vocalists, and favorite albums. Which got me thinking...

Earlier this summer I was going through a box of old stuff and inside I found an envelope of ticket stubs from concerts I've attended over the years.

Here's a list of shows:

The Who, Devo, Joan Armatrading, Love & Rockets, The Ramones, Talking Heads, Adrian Belew, Big Country, PIL, Genesis, Bruce Springsteen, Kansas, Blackfoot, Pretenders, Phil Keaggy, Allan Holdsworth, John Renborn, The Bears, Robert Fripp & the League of Gentleman, John Cougar Mellencamp, ZZ Top, the Call, Simple Minds, the Eagles, Steve Miller Band, Eddie Money, Bruce Cockburn, Firehose, Husker Du, Peter Gabriel, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Replacements, Faith No More, Echo & the Bunnymen, Miles Davis, Frank Zappa, Eric Clapton, Lime Spiders, B.H. Surfers, Beatlemania, Beach Boys, Undercover, Altar Boys, Hall & Oates, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, Richard Thompson, Tubes, Utopia with Todd Rundgren, the Monkees, James Brown, Martha and the Muffins, Daniel Lanois, U2, Tommy Emmanuel, 77s, Lou Reed, K.D.

Mom once said, "All those show are going to make you go deaf!"

I'm glad I can still hear. Because there's this show coming up...
