Which rock musician from the 1970's do you most wish to see play live before they die?
A lot of these men and women are getting pretty dang old, a lot of them are in their 70's now, and they won't be able to perform live in concert for much longer. Myself, I'd like to see Plant, Page, Jones, and Jason Bonham; but then again I'm dreaming.
Me, I want to go to as many Leon Russell Concerts as I can. He is 72 and has some health issues. I'm gonna miss him when hes gone. He is an amazing piano player and song writer. That gravely voice isn't much different now than it was then. I'm going to Kansas City in October to see him. Mya caCD player has nothing but him playing 24/7
I've never seen Ozzy either. I actually prefer the Dio era of Sabbath over the Ozzy era but obviously that ship has sailed (RIP Ronnie!)....so if I had a chance to see the Ozzy lineup now I'd jump at it. They ain't gettin' any younger after all.
I'm going for three: Keith Richards, Mick Taylor and Ron Wood. Keef'n'Ron complement one another (if it wasn't for Mick T leaving, Ron wouldn't have joined the Stones), and Mick T. played on stage with them in Hyde Park in 2013, 44 years after his first concert with them. Mick's personality didn't really fit in with theirs - he was a purist, they're performers - but they were gobsmacked when he left shortly after 'Exile -' was recorded. He lost out on the royalties and his career didn't go too well after leaving. He's ballooned, but his playing is still top rate (as demonstrated when he joined them on an extended 'Midnight Rambler'. Whilst Mick T went through the notes standing next to Mick J, Keef'n'Ron 'duetted'). All in all a solid sterling silver performance recorded for posterity on DVD + CD's (x2). Rock on Wes!
Cool! A Stones fan. Of course as a small time student of music, I also love The Stones! I just wonder if I could enjoy seeing them live....maybe I'm wrong for feeling this way, but I just dont' want to see Mick Jagger pretending to be 20 on stage
He's got too many creases to pretend any more. It's his strutting the fans go for - the lights go a long way to keep the illusion alive, but we all know he's knockin' on a bit. What the hell. While he can strut his stuff, let him. He's the front man
I love the BeeGees. I don't think there is one song they have sung that I have not liked. One of them has already passed, I think. The 70's are one of my favorite decades for songs. My favorite song in the world is "Your Song" by Elton John. Would not mind seeing him either...Ewan McGregor did a rendition of "Your Song" in the movie Moulin Rouge while was phenomenal.' So, I guess, in answer to your question I would not mind seeing either of these two. Great question! Blessings, Sparklea
