KISS in 1984. King Kobra was the opening act with Carmine Appice on drums. I remember one song where they brought out concert toms on stands and both guitar players played them along with Carmine on his kit. This show convinced my to get my first kit.

Wow! That's funny, 'cause...


I saw King Cobra, around the same time, headline in a small club, outside Baltimore, called "Coast to Coast". Which is not even there anymore.

Good show, but I don't think KK ever made more that 1 album, which I DO have. ;-)

Slayer - 1990 in Santa Cruz, CA. People started throwing trash cans into the pit, I was terrified (but in a good way).

Yeah, the cool thing is, they have a little fenced off section up on the lawn just for kids. They can run around and play with their little friends while Mommy n Daddy can enjoy the show. Mind you, we kept a close eye on em, but I think its pretty damn cool for a venue to provide such a place. Its safely at a distance from the loudspeakers and its just sooo cool to watch my little man runnin around in his tie-dye shirt with all the other littl-'uns. Twas a great show by the way...

I like the lawn section up there, I found out they were playin there the night after, and same last night with Levon Helm in Lowell. When I was up there though I didn't see the little kid area.

Ha. Man is was so AWESOME! When Slayer was playing and the circle pit started up I got so scared. I had to idea what to expect. I'd seen videos with them but those are nothing compared to a real mosh pit. Then everyone ran at eachother, started pushing everyone, and since I was kinda small I kept getting pushed over and trampled. This one neo nazi guy helped me up once, some huge (and I mean HUGE) guy fell on Neo Nazi. Neo Nazi headbutt me right in the nose and my nose broke. My nose broke cleanly so there wasn't any blood

Then Lamb of God, the Wall of Death... That hurt so so so so much. I my head kept getting pounded on, I fell on the floor and someone stepped on me. The guy helped me up later. Then a big fat guy was crowd surfing and he fell off right on top of me. I hurt my hip, my back, and my ankle really bad.

Dave Lombardo was incredicle, as was Adler. It was awesome, I want to see them again but my mom won't let me after what happened...

When I saw Slipknot, I had a broken nose and I passed out in some guys bathtub, naked and heavily bruised.
My mom wasn't too happy.
I'm not aloud to drink heavily at concerts anymore.

It was either REO Speedwagon or Phil Collins' first solo tour.. Both concerts were the same month if I remember correctly (BIG if :-)) at the Cincinnati Gardens

I thought I was something cuz I scored 3 tickets for Phil Collins in the 1st row on the floor...

We were at the end of the first row, so we spent the whole show staring at speaker cabinets 4 feet in front of us.

The only thing I could see was Phil's right hand on the snare when he played (being a lefty)

It was worth every penny...
