We've always been huge Led Zep fans. Back in the day they were THE band to listen to. I was in high school between classes when we got the news that John B. died. Absolutely shocking. I'd see them now, just for the experience, but it would never be the same.
Rush just played here last week, I wish we'd known, we would have gone! It was a sold-out show. I saw Rush several times in the early 80's, I love their early music. I also saw The Stones in 1982 in London, but it wasn't an impressive show, then again I only like a few of their songs. Around 1980 my then boyfriend invited me to come with him to both AC/DC and Sabbath shows, but my parents wouldn't let me, and I have never forgiven them! LOL. We did see Ozzy at the Ozfest 7-8 years ago, he was awesome. We were near the stage to the side, facing Sharon who sat through the whole thing, out of most people's sight. Speaking of AC/DC, we got one of our dogs from the drummer's (Phil Rudd) wife 17 years ago. She was breeding border collies, they were renting a farm in California while they were recording an album. Best dog in the world, he died last year.
I'm a total fan of hard rock.
Not a huge fan of Hendrix or Kiss at all, though.
