For Those Who Once Rocked

What bands have you seen that don’t exist anymore? What bands did you miss seeing?

We had a discussion at work this week about bands that we wish we could have seen. It got me thinking about what bands I could have conceivably seen during my concert-going years that I missed, as well as the bands and musicians that I did get to see before they disbanded or passed away.

With that in mind, I made a list of the bands I’ve seen or missed as of the date of this post.

Concerts I wish I had seen, but missed my chance:

  • Queen
  • Barry White
  • Cranberries
  • David Bowie
  • John Lee Hooker
  • Lou Reed
  • Morphine
  • Nirvana
  • Plasmatics
  • Prince
  • Sinéad O’Connor
  • The Cars
  • The Clash
  • The Kinks
  • The Pogues
  • The Who
  • Twisted Sister
  • Type O Negative

Concerts I did see before someone critical passed away (I have been very lucky):

  • Avenged Sevenfold with The Rev
  • B.B. King
  • Charlie Daniels
  • David Crosby
  • Etta James
  • Huntress
  • Jeff Beck
  • Joey Jordison (drumming for Slipknot)
  • Katie Webster
  • Metallica with Cliff Burton
  • Motörhead
  • Nell Carter
  • Ozzy Osbourne (still alive but no longer touring)
  • Pantera
  • Ronnie James Dio
  • Rush
  • Slayer
  • Soundgarden
  • Stevie Ray Vaughan
  • Stone Temple Pilots
  • The Ramones
  • Tom Petty
  • Tony Bennett
  • Voivod with Denis D’Amour
  • ZZ Top with Dusty Hill
