Supertramp - early seventies. don't recall which tour but the sun rising to School to open the concert is implanted in my mind until Alzheimer's takes it away. My first smell of dope at that concert.

The exact year is a little foggy, mid seventies, but it was April Wine with Rush opening at the Niagara Falls Memorial arena.

The Allman Brothers at the Capital Centre in Landover, MD in '75. Muddy Waters opened for them.

I was my first concert and my sisters' last. A guy sitting next to her was drinkin' Jack Daniels, snortin' coke and smokin' weed non-stop for the first hour and he eventually vomited all over himself and his girlfriend. And then he sat there in his own vomit for the rest of the show, too effed-up to make a trip to the bathroom. So my big sister never attended a rock concert in an arena again.

But I was not deterred. I was just gettin' started. 8)
