Subject: Musicians you wish you'd seen live
From: Chris Green
Date: 19 Nov 04 - 06:59 AM

Not really sure if this is BS or not - if you think it is feel free to move it below the line!

As a bloke in his mid-twenties, it occurs to me that, through death or retirement, I haven't seen a lot of my favourite musicians play live. Then, being the shiftless layabout that I am, I started to make a list.

Nic Jones (I was five when he had his accident)

Stephane Grappelli (no excuse as he was still touring in his final year of life)

Bach (for obvious reasons)

Sandy Denny

Anyone else got any performers they really wish they'd seen?

Dire Straits, Michael Jackson, Crowded House and Michael Hedges, for ones where I could have gone but didn't.

For ones where I was too young or not yet born, all the great 60s, 70s and 80s rock bands - Stones, Kinks, Animals, Hendrix, Led Zep, Floyd, Queen, Meatloaf, Iron Maiden, Levellers. (Yes I know I could still see some of them - but they're none of them rocking like they used to.) Also Django and Dave Brubeck on the jazz front. And just about any of the bluesmen from the 30s.

Graham.

That must have been a difficult choice between CCR and Pentangle, Jerry. I am not sure what I would have done.
I enjoyed the Bob Dylan gigs I saw, but I would have liked to see him younger. I didn't see him until 1978 for the first time. I would love to have been able to see Mississippi John Hurt close up. I should have seen Tony Rose. I should have made the effort. I did see Peter Bellamy and Nic Jones before the accident. I am glad I did.

Mark - A friend of mine was the son of missionaries in China. His father once spent a week travelling with Will Rogers on a train across China. When his son - Kent - heard about this he told his father that it must have been wonderful to spend so much time with such funny person as Will Rogers. His father replyed that after a week on a train - even Will Rogers isn't funny anymore.

Stanley Turrentine was a great, bluesy sax player. I'm close enough to New York City to get down to hear him, but the last couple of times he played clubs, I had another commitment. And then he up and died. I did get to hear some other great jazz musicians though, including Louis Armstrong, George Shearing, Tal Farlow and Bob Scobey with Clancy Hayes on vocals.

Sorry, Bill. I really enjoy seeing the breadth of music that Catters love. It gives me a better feel of who they are...
