Subject: The Concert List
From: DonMeixner
Date: 05 Apr 10 - 08:56 AM

This is because of the thread about best and worst concerts. I tried to remember the best and the worst. The worst was easy, Tim Hardin, he never showed, but the best was too hard. So a listing from old calendars, ticket stubs, handbills and my associative memory gives me this list
I realized over the years I'd heard a lot of great music. Some names are missing, and it is only half complete.
