Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs at a little village fair, on a stage low enough that a little boy could rest his chin on it and almost touch their toes. It was more than a few days ago.

I would like to apologize to anyone I have *not* offended. Please be patient. I will get to you shortly.

Many more that I wanted to see but circumstances would not permit. The one that haunts me most was missing out on Led Zeppelin in 1979 during my senior year of high school. A friend offered me a ticket after his girlfriend broke up with him. But on such short notice, I couldn't get off of work to go n her place so he got somebody else. Why did I have to be so responsible as a 17 year-old?! I should have called in sick or just quit to go see Zeppelin! Hindsight is always 20/20!

I've been keeping a "bucket" list of guitar players I want to see before I die. I completed it this year when I recently saw Robin Trower.

Here's a list of guitar players I've seen live. Some more than once. Some are no longer with us.

Robin Trower
Jeff Beck
Buddy Guy
Eric Clapton
Carlos Santana
David Gilmour
Jimmy Page
Jimi Hendrix
Alvin Lee
Steve Miller
Pete Townshend
Randy California
Frank Zappa
Keith Richards
Andrés Segovia
Al Di Meola
Nils Lofgren
Jorma Kaukonen
David Crosby
America (all three: Bunnell, Beckley & Peek)
Neal Schon (with Santana and with Journey)
Stevie Ray Vaughan
John Fogerty

You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24

Too many to remember easily. A lot that aren't big arena acts, too.

Recently I saw:

Wood and Wire
Brandi Carlisle

and many others at the Old Settler's Music Festival.
