    By the way, who here can make me turn green with jealousy and claim they have been to a Nirvana concert?

    My wife and I lived in Portland, Oregon when they played there in 91 or 92. We decided not to go because we were both working a lot. AAAARRRGGGHHH!!! Talk about a bad decision!

    I did !! I saw them in a rock festival Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 1993. They claimed it was their worst gig ever, but in fact, I had a great time, it was one of the best concerts I've been.

    But I never had the chance to attend a Soundgarden concert. I actually liked them much more than Nirvana.

    My fave band is Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, I've seen them a few times.
    When I lived in Sao Paulo, I used to attend more concerts, now not so much.

    Now, I would LOVE to see Leonard Cohen live. This would make me turn green! :mrgreen:

    In '91 I saw them in October and they were just getting huge. To the best of my memory they played about half of Nevermind and most of Bleach. I honestly don't remember the crowd much at that one. The one in '93 I remember because Kurt was just not into it, he kept taking his guitar off. We were late anyway and didn't get a great vantage point. But they did do man Who Sold the World which made up for a lot.

    That's where I saw the Beatles -- in 1964 and 1965. My son and I just moved back to Portland this past Wednesday. Things sure have changed since I was a kid. Sooooo much more traffic.

    We're heading up there next September to drop my daughter off at college. I've heard the same thing about the traffic. We moved away in '93. I loved it up there. Have you been to Voodoo Donuts yet? It's supposed to be amazing.

    Red Hot Chili Peppers-Gnarls Barkley in 2007. Slick Rick also in 2007. Ted Nugent and Lynyrd Skynyrd, forgot the year.
    All three concerts were amazing. Good times!
