First concert (summer '67) was Every Mothers Son and the Turtles (!). Second one (late summer '67) was the Doors (a whole different experience!). Other great early concerts: Allman Brothers ca. winter '70/71 (with the full original lineup); John McLaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra (yeow); Jeff Beck; etc. It helped to be going to school near NYC... I saw the Stones in July '72 and at the time thought I was lucky to be seeing them before their career was over...!

Ex-Mrs. wineturtle The First suggests this may be the New Years Show of 1959 that we attended together.http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b15/m ... an0002.jpg

Great line up one way or another.

With Brigitte Bardot thrown in, one would have to agree!

My first concert in 1967 was a local band 'The Cryan' Shames'. They had a large following in the Chicago area from 1965 until '69, with a couple of top 40 hits.

Buddy was spectacular, of course, beyond description. Still, my favorite is Joe Morello.

Reminded me of a trivia question I heard recently: Which group is the only one to have a top 10 album (I think it was top 10, not #1) on the rock/pop chart five decades in a row (60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s? I surely would have guessed the Stones, but that's not the answer.

Yes (and that word is not a clue) but some lineup changes no doubt (I don't know enough about their members to know who's come and gone.)

Bob Seger and The Siver Bullet Band? Don't think he has done anything of note this decade though.

edit-would have to be just him-SBB not formed until the seventies

A rather stupid, very indirect clue: think of a specific Harvard professor who lost his "O".

Harvard prof Timothy Leary would be O'Leary if he hadn't lost his "O" and 'twas Mrs. O'Leary's cow that started...the Chicago Fire. We have a winner! It's Chicago. Heard it on Friday Night Gold or some such radio show. Chicago did some shows-I don't know if it was a full tour-together with Earth, Wind, and Fire this year and they were supposedly pretty good concerts. (Tell me someone would have gotten it off of clue #2: "Wait till next year.")

Chicago had a Top 10 album in the 60's - really? Chicago I came out in 69 and was not a big hit till the next year, when they hit it big with Chicago II. I believe that Chicago I went on to be a big seller, but I sure don't remember they were Top 10 in 69 (but my reference books are at home, so I can't be sure). Anyone?

I must admit I did not do the research to confirm this. You know, "Well, they said it on the radio, so it must be true."

OK, so maybe it was a top 20 each decade. Their first album hit #17 in 1969. See above link.

I got burned on this very thing. A DJ said that "The Letter" by the Box Tops was the shortest #1 pop tune at 2:06 or some such, when that was not true at all, as I soon found out when I was corrected (multiple times!) here.

Perusal of their discography reveals no clear top 20 in the 90s or 00s but several in that timeframe with "Information not available yet" under the chart info listing, so who knows. But they had quite the run with their first twelve albums, reaching these chart positions: 17, 4, 2, 3, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 3, 6, and 12.
