I was never into going to concerts. I'm not sure I even went to ten let alone having a top ten. Nor could I come close to remembering dates.
If I had to list my favorite, I'm not sure it would even qualify. It was my first real date with my wife. Some time in winter 1993. Norwalk City Hall. Fairfield County Symphony performance of Beethoven's Ninth.
I later learned of her absolute disdain for classical music.
My first concert - no idea when - was Seals & Croft, and they blew me away. I wasn't expecting much, but they rocked a lot harder than I expected.
Best would be either Jethro Tull or Santana. Both in small auditoriums in Germany. Very intimate and full of energy. Stanley Clark played with Santana.
Most memorable is tied between Elton John and Styx, because they were "dream" concerts for my wife.
