    Ok, I'm not a huge concert goer, been to a few when in the Army stationed in California. But, of the ones I have seen, two famous acts come to mind that I would bet very few, and maybe no one on this board has seen live.

    Yes- Mid 80's at The Cow Palace in San Fran.

    Robert Plant (with the Honey Drippers)- Mid 80's Cow Palace.

    Yes, by the way, was freaking incredible.

    Saw Roseanne Barr attempt to sing the National Anthem at Jack Murphy Stadium back in 1990. One of the most disgraceful and disrespectful things I've ever seen.

    I imagine plenty of people have seen any acts that I have caught. Jethro Tull and Emerson Lake and Palmer are a couple that have not yet been mentioned though.
