    My memory is not very good, so undoubtedly I'll forget many and in no particular order:

    - Frampton, pre "Frampton Comes Alive" and a bunch of times afterwards (my wife and I have met him several time over the years as well)
    - Grand Funk, early '70s
    - RUSH, starting around '76 and a bunch of times afterwards (again, my wife and I have met the boys several times over the years)
    - Jeff Beck
    - Heart, the Roger Fisher years and a couple of times after that (I met them back in the '70s. Really only care about RF. Nancy was a JERK!)
    - Queen
    - Uriah Heep
    - ZZ Top, the LOUDEST band I've ever seen
    - Boz Scaggs
    - Steve Miller
    - AC/DC, not my favorite
    - Thin Lizzy, Gary Moore was filling-in for Robo (YEA!!!! Not that I don't like Robo)
    - Journey
    - Cheap Trick
    - Edgar WInter
    - Blue Oyster Cult
    - Max Webster
    - Pat Travers
    - REO Speedwagon
    - Buddy Guy
    - Larry Carlton
    - Lee Ritenour
    - Yellowjackets, a bunch of times (again, my wife and I have met them, almost each time we've seen them)
    - Spryo Gyra
    - Jeff Golub
    - Robben Ford (met him too)
    - Robin Trower
    - Robert Cray
    - Chicago
    - Tower of Power
    - Sting

    There are a bunch more, but I can't think right now.

    This is completely true. Me and 4 mates went to see Eric Clapton on 15th of August 1976 in Blackpool. In our eyes he had lost 'god' status so we thought we would just roll up and buy the tickets but it was sold out. To console ourselves we hit the bar, the Imperial Hotel, Blackpool. They had a poolside bar in the basement. Guess who strolls in, the man himself with Marcy Levy and Yvonne Elliman (I think). I think he was somewhat 'worse for wear' but I got his autograph (still got it) and he asked for a cigarette which I gave him. On a roll I asked him for tickets for the show and he gave me 2. We then went upstairs with the rest of the band and Harvey Goldsmith ? a man in a suit and blagged a couple of more tickets. We followed the tour bus to the gig and got another ticket just as they went in. All our tickets were front row with the bands girlfriends etc. To cap it they had an after show party back in the Hotel, free food and booze ! Eric didn't show to this. Happy days !

    I'm not gonna list every band I ever saw.
    Legendary is subjective, some will be generally considered legendary, some will be legendary to me after all, I bought the tickets and went.

    Sir Paul McCartney
    Sir Elton John
    KISS
    Van Halen original amd w Hagar
    Triumph like 6 times
    ZZ Top
    The Guess Who, sort of. Bachman Cummings w some other original members

    Aerosmith a few times,
    Judas Priest a few
    Scorps
    Bon Jovi
    Many 3 day rock festivals here. Lotsa bands.
    Many others

    Probably the coolest show would have been the US Festival in 1983.

    ibmorjamn, on Be Bop Deluxe (Bill Nelson is a legend to me) I went to see them on 22/07/1974. This was at the Hardrock Theatre, Stretford, Manchester a month after Axe Victim was released, ticket price £0.80 (I keep my old tickets). They were supporting Cockney Rebel. In the car park was a Morris Minor Estate car (not exactly rock n' roll !) In it was a white suit hanging up obviously Bill's stage gear. Be Bop were great with Bill using his trademark feedback etc. I have a Marshall JTM 45 re issue and had it hardwired by an amp tech in Yorkshire about 5 years ago. The guy (a lifelong Be Bop fan) also makes custom amps and he made one for Bill Nelson. He told me that when Bill came to collect he asked Bill to play some of his old material. He had the amp tech close to tears !
