50 Bands

My best friend, Alex, and another girlfriend, Nicole, tagged me recently in their facebook posts that lists 50 Bands/Acts that they have seen in their years. Ordinarily, I don't participate in these things but this one was really fun.

Since I go to so many music festivals and I can name 50 bands I saw this past April at Jazzfest, I tried to limit myself to those concerts that I actually paid money to see individually.

No judgement, please.

Ok, you can judge.

Well, crap. That makes my lone entry - Neil Diamond - really sad!

Although, I recently saw Mandisa! Does that count?

L- why yes, mam, it is Jack Wagner the one and only! Saw him at the Meadowlands in NJ with my cousin. Summer of 84ish? Rosie O'Donnell opened. Not kidding.

As for Bread...
If a picture paints 1,000 words then why can't I paint you?
