I was fortunate enough to see everyone on my list...

Tangerine Dream in San Francisco in the early 90's. Pink Floyd on the Animals tour in the 70's, SRV in the late 80's. And Genesis in the late 70's. Unfortunately after Gabrial left but they were still playing all the PG era songs.

I also say Aussie Pink Floyd a couple years ago playing the full DSOTM and WYWH albums. Very professional and the closet thing to live Floyd anyone will ever be able to see again.

jetskiprosx 08-30-2011 5:46 PM

I only have one favorite that is always playing. Never get sick of hearing their stuff. The rest of my music goes on rotation depending on how I'm feeling.

O.A.R....!

It's hard to choose a favorite Floyd album...Animals is pure genius and I know that was a hell of a show. Gilmour's lead on Dogs is one of my favorites.

Chic! I'm a relatively young guy but as guitar player and just a fan of good musicians, Nile Rodgers is a hell of a player.

You have great taste in music :D Absolutely love me some Miles Davis. I have sampled a ton of stuff from him.

ottog1979 09-02-2011 3:26 PM

I'm very eclectic so it's hard to nail it down to just 5, so I'll go with these three for now

The Who
Wilco
Stevie Ray Vaughan

hatepain 09-02-2011 3:32 PM

Thanks Jaybee. Incidentally I still rock your 80's mix every now and again.

Van Halen - Have seen them a dozen times starting with Dave on the Diver Down tour.
Chris Isaak - Been listening to him for 25 years. One of those musicians that I like just about every song he writes.
Randy Rogers band - My most recent favorite. Been a staple on my ipod rotation for the last year. "Texas Country" is it's own genre.
The Cars - My very first rock concert back in 1982
Foo Fighters - had listened to them for years, but really just discovered them 3 years ago. Much like Chris Isaak, I like everything Dave puts out.

I found this really difficult to narrow down to just 5 acts.
