OK, all you current/former concert goers, hunting and fishing obsessed outdoor folk I see many references to your music of choice on here and what you listen to on the radio. It's time to list all the bands you've seen in concert (if you can remember them through all the purple haze...aka hippie lettuce afterburn, beer, and jack daniels) in your lifetime. The lists should be interesting. Here is my list, some bands I've seen more than once.

Styx
Mahogany Rush
Ozzy Osbourne
Ted Nugent
REO Speedwagon
Tom Petty
The Romantics (please forgive me)
Boston
.38 Special
Charlie Daniels
Pat Travers
Marshall Tucker Band
Firefall
Willie Nelson
Chris Ledoux
Travis Tritt
Sawyer Brown
Trish Yearwood
Tracy Lawrence
Loverboy (please forgive me)
Van Halen
Foghat
Hall & Oates
Cheap Trick
The Cars
Bad Company
John Mellencamp - kickoff of Scarecrow tour

Wish I'd seen KISS, Aerosmith, Eagles.
