Now there's a name I haven't heard for over 40 years. Kid Ory was still playing in New Orleans when I was growning up around there. I heard him live several times in the early '60s, once sitting on the floor a few feet away. Thanks for triggering the memory.

For purposes of this discussion, I assume "Live" means "in the flesh" as opposed to live television. In the latter case, my field expands exponentially, as it would for others in my age group (67). TV first came to my rural area of central California in around 1949-50. I was able to see a lot of great performers on shows like "Omnibus," "The Firestone Hour," "The Ed Sullivan Show" and many others - everything from grand opera to classical orchestral to jazz to pop to folk and blues. In the early 1950's, they would often show little clips of performers between regular programs. Turner Classic Movies sometimes shows these "One Reel Wonders." They ranged from old jazz and big band groups to individual jazz performers like Jack Teagarden or Kid Ory and singers such as Marian Anderson and Ma Rainey.

Paul Robeson, of course!

I was limiting my list to performers I might theoretically have seen since they were alive during my lifetime. If I expand the parameters to include people who died before I was born I would have to add Caruso, Jussi Bjoerling and Chaliapin. Come to think of it, I think Kathleen Ferrier died before 1957.

I'm grateful that I've seen so many great ones- Dylan, Willie, Joan Baez, Seeger of course, Neil Young, Judy Collins,Kris Kristopherson,Townes Van Zandt, Van Morrison, but missed too many.

Some people mentioned Fred Neil. Did he pass??? I loved his music.

Dan Fogelberg - who I saw for part of a concert and my bf at the time
               didn't like him, and made us leave. (Of course, that
                relationship didn't last long, but I somehow never
               had the opportunity to see Dan again)

A quick list:

Muddy Waters
Waylon Jennings
Johnny Cash
Cyril Tawney
Big Mama Thornton
Manitas de Plata
Clancy Brothers with Tommmy Maken (did see Liam Clancy and Tommy Makem in separate gigs)
Kenneth McKellar
Kathleen Ferrier
Pavarotti

Steve Goodman, Mississippi John Hurt and Kate Wolf have long topped my list. Libba Cotton, too - though technically I think I probably did see her - but I was too young to remember. For living people, Junior Brown - I was in Austin two years and never made it out to see him!

One of the neat things about this thread is the number of people mentioned that I have been able to see live - and in some cases meet.

In my list I meant Elvis Presley (1954-1956, not 1964-1966, of course).
Lucky enough to have seen many on Uncle Phil's "seen" list, and on his "wish list":-

Stephane Grappelli (Canterbury UK, c1973) - his sensuous improvisation on the middle eight bars of "Someone to watch over me"
almost gave me an erection.
Bob Marley (London 1978 - marvellous)
Josh White (St. Pancras Town Hall, London c1959). Saw Jesse Fuller about the same time.

As for more I wish I could have seeen, the list could go on forever.

"I also expected to see some more recent N American performers like the Duhks, Mammals, Old Crow Medicine Show, The Greencards, Rodrigo e Gabriela, or Uncle Earl."

I think the thread is supposed to be about people who you can no longer see, because of death or retirement or bands going their separate ways.

I've seen the Duhks and Old Crow. Both were excellent. But Old Crow I don't think i'd ever tire of seeing live. One of the best bands of any genre to emerge in recent years, IMHO.

I can't believe I read it all. I took notes. Here are performers someone wished they'd seen that I have seen: The Beatles, Fats Domino, Bob Dylan. Mississippi John Hurt, Pete Seeger, Sonny Terry and Brownie Magee, Ramblin' Jack Elliot, Earl Scruggs, Arlo Guthrie, Jean Richie, Seamus Kennedy, Marty Robbins, Tish Hinojosa, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Sons of the Pioneers, B.B. King, and Joe Ely.

Here are performers from the thread that I have never seen but would like to (except the dead ones, of course, that would just be icky). Stephane Grappelli, Jimi Hendrix, Django Reinhardt, Bob Marley, Rolling Stones, Jimmie Rodgers, Woody Guthrie (and Woody and Cisco), Bill Monroe, Doc Watson, Steve Goodman, Muddy Waters, Johnny Cash, Booker T & the MGs, Janis Joplin, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Townes Van Zandt, Leadbelly, Lefty Frizzell, Dave Van Ronk, Jefferson Airplane, Carter Family, and Josh White.

I was surprised not to see Willie and Waylon, Bob Wills, Jerry Jeff Walker or Merle Haggard since there were other country music performers on the list. I also expected to see some more recent N American performers like the Duhks, Mammals, Old Crow Medicine Show, The Greencards, Rodrigo e Gabriela, or Uncle Earl.

Who I would love to have seen would include (in no particular order):-
Billie Holiday, Elvis Presley (1964-66), Gary Stewart (sadly departed and much under-valued honky-tonk singer), Charlie Mingus,
Louis Armstrong (preferaby 1927.......), Joe Ely Band of late 1970s (with Ponty Bone, Lloyd Maines and Jesse Taylor), oh and loads more.

Cyril Tawney , Stan Rogers, Ewan Mccoll. Townes van Zandt. Saw Jimi Hendrix in the late 60's at Philharmonic hall in NYC of all places. A classical brass ensemble opened up the show. Jimi was about 90 minutes late and didn;t seem to into it that performance. Maybe he was just having an off night. The next night I saw The Incredible String Band for the first of many times and it intensified my interest in more acoustic music. I saw several references to Eva cassidy in the previous entries. I'm not familiar with her. Any info would be appreciated.

A couple of mentions of Tom Waits in the thread

I saw him in Berlin on 15th November and seeing him in London tonight ( 23rd November ), the last date on his short European tour.

The man still has it. In great form. He is a very powerful performer, puts a lot into his singing and has great technique. Not everyone likes his voice ( or voices ) but then you pays your money and takes your choice.His band , Marc Ribot, Larry Taylor and Brain are getting better and better as the tour progresses.

The piano only makes an entrance for the encore, worth the wait though.The material is more dirty bluesy now but it is still a hell of a show

Catch him if you can

Eddie Cochran..

i used to know an old balding teddy boy
who saw his last ever gig..

New York Dolls..

David Johannsen, the bands surviving singer,
is now doing
some excellent old blokes country blues solo CDs..

Pentangle..

at the time they were touring "reflections" & "solomons seal" material..

Michael Chapman..

when Mick Ronson was his backing guitarist
[dunno if they ever gigged,
or just recorded 'fully qualified survivor' together ]..

The Sweet..

I want a time machine now..
so i can travel back
and buy tickets for the xmas 1973 gig
that became one of the finest heavy rock live LPs ever recorded..

Jack the Lad..

saw them on the telly when I was a kid,
but i'd love to have been in the front row
of a hot sweaty gig
to really experience their threateningly entertaining
shovel [& pick axe ???} wielding
belligerent mineworkers clog/morris dance routine..

The Move..

at the Marquee club, of course..

MC5..

the good period between 'back in the usa' & 'high time'lps

Mr Fox..

though i have a vague suspicion they might not
have been very good live..
..but if Carolanne Pegg ever gigged any of her solo
stuff with Albert Lee as band guitarist.
definitely put me down for a ticket on the guest list..

Dexys Midnight Runners..

1982/3 Celtic soul brothers line-up touring "Too-Ry-Ay" Lp


..and i reckon mid 60's earlyish line-up

Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs

would have put on a show worth remembering..

ok.. that'll be more than enough memory straining
to be going on with..
tried not to duplicate any of the big names already mentioned,
most of us might desire to have seen for real..

errrr.. I just wish i could remember some of the great gigs
i have been to..
