Tough one! Sooo many good bands out there. I know my top 3 concerts better than bands, because the venue makes so much difference in quality of show.

1) Roger Waters - 1990 in Berlin at the Wall.
2) U2 - Reunion Arena 2001. All You Can't Leave Behind Tour
3) Dream Theater - some small club in Dallas. Scenes from a Memory tour, 1999 or 2000.

Tool and RHCP would both be up there for me. Problem is that I've heard them so many times, they're not go-tos any more.

Here's a project I'm working on that's a bit insane. Rolling Stone Top 500 albums of all time - 2012 edition. I'm almost done with 200 of them.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1OON ... sp=sharing

It's boring reading, but it's been an enlightening project. Even some classic artists, I really don't know the albums as a whole. To save money growing up, I'd go with the greatest hits albums. It's only been since Spotify, that I've had access to ....practically everything. I've been going back in time a lot to stuff I missed.


Revelations from that list that I didn't know much about: Funkadelic - Maggot Brain, Echo and the Bunnymen - Heaven Up Here, War - The World is a Ghetto, Gang Of Four - Entertainment, PJ Harvey - Storeis from the City, Stories From the Sea, The Minutemen - Double Nickels on the Dime, Wire - Pink Flag, Dr John - Dr John's Gumbo, Roxy Music - For Your Pleasure, Talking Heads - More Songs About Buildings and Food, The Beach Boys - Smile (2011 version) <---Holy Crap!!!, Modern Lovers - Modern Lovers, Buzzcocks - Singles Going Steady, Randy Newman - 12 songs, Jay-Z - The Black Album, Black Flag - Damaged, Jethro Tull - Aqualung, David Bowie - Station to Station.


I can tell you my 3 faves in senior year in college were:

1) Janes Addiction
2) Faith No More
3) RHCP

No idea what they are today.


EDIT: I think when I got the Sublime box set, I played that for 6 months exclusively.

Let's be honest. It all sounds the same.

This is an amazing post. Good call on Bowie, Dream Theater (Live at Budokan!!), Talking Heads (listened to Name of this Band way too many times to be deemed healthy during grad school), PJ Harvey and 6 months of Sublime. Strong work dude.
