We will never know world peace, until three people can simultaneously look each other straight in the eye

Just a few, either at the Red Fox Inn in Bethesda MD or the Cellar Door in Georgetown. Neither is a "concert" venue, but rather a small, intimate club (~200 seats, very close to the artists).
The Seldom Scene
Starland Vocal Band
The Country Gentlemen
Doc and Merle Watson
New Grass Revival
I know I'm leaving out some, due to a hasty attempt at recollection.
all your sig are belong to us
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.
Nashville pussy and Motörhead.

Brooks and Dunn
TCB all the time...
Van Halen X3
ZZ Top X4
Credence Clearwater Revival
Charlie Daniels Band
Lynyrd Skynyrd x3
Guns & Roses
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.
Al Di Meola
America (all three: Bunnell, Beckley & Peek)
Neal Schon (with Santana and with Journey)
Stevie Ray Vaughan

"If you’re a leader, you lead the way. Not just on the easy ones; you take the tough ones too…” – MAJ Richard D. Winters (1918-2011), E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne
"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
