Pretty cool, Napster... :tup

On a related note, I just ordered pretty much everything else of theirs I was lacking on CD... mostly their early stuff. I was always a fan of theirs. Hell, I even like the most of the poppy stuff. Please don't tell anybody... :unsure:

:lol:

In 1983 saw ZZ Top and Zebra at Market Square Arena in Indianapolis , Sammy Hagar was supposed to open but canceled. I was already into Zebra and loved the change (never been big on ole Sammy).

In 2004 saw Rush on the R30 Tour with Riky Rathchild at the Verizon Music Center in Noblesville.

Very good shows, even without the mighty Hagar... 8)

This is a great thread idea. I actually have a list of the major shows I've seen, although I'm not 100% sure about the dates of some of the earliest shows. I'll have to try to organize them by date so I can contribute to the thread. :B

Up first though, I have to get my shit together long enough to write a review for the BLS show this weekend. :oops:

In 1981 MTV kicked off with "Video Killed the Radio Star" by The Buggles featuring Trevor Horn and Geoff Downes.

I actually watched the first few hours of MTVs first day... including the moonman promos and the Buggles video. Who knew that 30 years later, the network would still be popular? ...and have absolutely nothing to do with music of any kind? :lol:

I'd like to mark the anniversary of the last time they actually played a video. It's gotta be approaching the decade mark at least... :P

No shit. Why do they even call in Music Television? VH1 Classic channel is the only one I know that still plays videos. Plus they have That Metal Show.
