Well, if I am not mistaken, it was made illegal in Japan to talk about the effects of Fukushima, and yes, TEPCO and the government were involved in a huge coverup.

This is the way I understood it to be as well.

Is it true the guest hadn't heard of the incident in Simi Valley? Did she mention Chalk River Labs?

Burton Cummings too.

He must have a drinking problem or something because I think I've heard of him crashing before. Maybe he is the Danica Patrick of 70s rock. Some people chronically drive into stuff.

Glenn Frey and Tom Petty bummed me out as well.

Another thread reminded me that I forgot to include DEVO in my list. I saw them in June 2011 when Fukushima was smoking, the Gulf was mega-polluted, and Coastgab was useful. It was a free concert in the street. They probably played for about 90 minutes and it was a high energy set. They didn't play Jonee or Social Fools for some reason but did Urge and Mongoloid which are probably my two favorite songs of theirs. The setlist was this:

 1 -- Don't Shoot (I'm a Man)
 2 -- Peek-a-Boo
 3 -- What We Do
 4 -- Going Under
 5 -- Fresh
 6 -- That's Good
 7 -- Girl U Want
 8 -- Whip It
 9 -- Planet Earth
10 - (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (cover)
11 - Secret Agent Man (cover)
12 - Uncontrollable Urge
13 - Mongoloid
14 - Jocko Homo
15 - Smart Patrol/Mr. DNA
16 - Gates of Steel

DEVO Corporate Anthem


18 - Freedom of Choice
19 - Beautiful World

So true.  Did you know it won't snow in Africa this Christmas? :P

Oh wait, maybe I'm wrong!

I used to think that was an inane lyric.

I still have my 7" Band-Aid record

Looking Glass reminds me of that TV docudrama from 1984 when war broke out in the Gulf of Aiden or Whoremoose or wherever and the media personalities were monitoring the wires while doing interviews with real life politicians. It was actually pretty good.

If I died, I wouldn't come back and freighten my loved ones.

It's probably best not to weigh them down with tariff sheets and packing tape like that anyways.

RCH is live tonight, right?

I really enjoy most of his shows. I just wish he was on earlier.

I was reading his thread earlier and the chat from last night indicated a guest host. I haven't listened since Fred's station carried his show. I tried listening when he was on that 500 watt station that played the Rat Pack music but he was always pulling a Ferris Bueller. The blogtalk radio server has no direct link to the stream and my computer's fan spins too loudly to hear the show.

He is definately on too late. Especially working in EST timezone.

He alienated his fanbase by disappearing for many months from DMDN and KCAA, and who knows who else. In the beginning I actually enjoyed his show more than Art/MITD.

Awesome list. The Ramones - Ozzy Osbourne - Iggy & The Stooges - Iron Maiden - Ministry.  I envy ya!

My regret was not seeing Ministry sooner. I would have liked to have caught them somewhere between 1992 and 1996 for maximum experience. I saw them on the tour for Houses of the Mole and they played a typical anthology of hits plus some new ones of the time like No W and Warp City. I have since unsubscribed to Al. He literally writes songs praising Antifa now. It literally is a song title and he thinks masked George Soros commies throwing rocks in the streets is a good idea. Even the Revolting Cocks went on tour without him last year, they probably think he has flipped his fucking lid.

The first time I saw Ozzy was in a night club, less than 1000 person capacity, Geezer played bass. It was a pre-tour warm-up show. I think it cost about $40 to be against the barrier in the front row between Ozzy and Geezer.  Money well spent.

Concerts today are fucking expensive. I was gonna go see Elton John for shits and giggles but the cheapest ticket is $350 plus taxes and service charges and it is way up on level 200 or something maybe higher.

It's very difficult to get tickets for arena shit these days. Me and 2 friends bought Nine Inch Nails tickets off a scalper 2 years ago for $200/each and the guy even knocked $100 off each ticket since we got 3. He wanted $300 per piece but we kind of knew him so he cut us a deal for the three. Anyways, $200 is not a lot for floor tickets in an arena these days. I lost my friends but I wormed right in there and got within 3-5 heads back of the center of the barrier by the middle point of the set.

Check out the cost of Ozzy tickets for this tour. Or GNR tickets the past 2 years. Greedy stuff. Then resellers will E-purchase all the good tickets and relist them on ticketmasters site at twice the original absurd price.

Best to see bands in small venues and halls these days, and buy pre-printed GA tickets from blocks held at local independent record stores. The days of lining up at TM at 10am and being first come first served is long over.

<MITD's magik number is 78>

115380 will take the lead over OSOM. That target may climb if OSOM is active between now and tomorrow.

I had to make 2 edits... Jerry Reed ended up in the wrong list. And the Tiger Army date was off by 10 years.

Fishbone was good despite the dive. Apparently he pulled that shit about five years ago and broke some woman's neck. It went to court.

All but 3 of these concerts were general admission. I had to sit in a fucking seat for Iron Maiden 2005, Metallica with the figure 8 stage, and Marilyn Manboobs.

Also to clarrify, that is Shelton (Hank the third) and not Hank Williams Jr. It is the son of Jr, grandson of Sr. He has his grandpa's voice. I think he is banned from entering Canada because the Reverend Horton Heat and the Supersuckers did a tour with him and he was on all dates except the Canadian ones. I am not sure I will ever go back to the USA to live or to visit.

Fear recently opened up for The Misfits/Glenn. Possibly at the NJ show in May. Lee Ving was also recently seen playing with his old Decline era bandmates (minus Derf who died a couple years ago). He also popped up in a lot of movies and TV shows.

PS: Mustaine apparently lives in Nashville now (I read it on Blabbermouth a while back).

I rarely see shows anymore. I recently saw The Tea Party in December at The Horseshoe on Queen. Before That it was X celebrating 40 years, which was the same week as DRI who I have seen several times but not within the last 25 years. L7 is coming soon, I will probably go and check them bitches out.

Lucinda Williams came last year for 2 nights of shows, I would liked to have seen her but I didn't go. It was the middle of winter and I was unmotivated. Maybe next time.

- Marilyn Manboobs -- 1999 Columbus Ohio, a fancy theater with bowl seating, forget the name of the venue
- Rush, The Guess Who, AC/DC, Rolling Stones -- Downsview Park Summer 2004

Concerts paid for but canceled because of riots, pandemic disease, crack use headaches, death, and booking issues... in that order:

- The Exploited, 2003
- Concrete Blonde, 2004
- Bad Brains, 2012
- James Brown, scheduled for winter 2007
- Nina Hagen, 2016 cancelled with no explanation (gen admission only, $100/ea)

I opted not to get a refund on The Exploited ticket. I still have it. The event is on YouTube if you search montreal riot 2003 LOL.

Concerts skipped for unlogical reasons and permenently regretted because I am a stupid fucking cunt:

- Johnny Cash (Bandshell CNE Toronto, I was going on rides like The Zipper etc and skipped Johnny and June), I pulled similar shit with Johnny in 1992, 1994, and 1996.
- Guns N Roses/Metallica, 1992
- Gwar, 1992, 1994, 1995, 1998 (fuck me / what the fuck was I thinking)
- Heaven And Hell, late 2000s (Black Sabbath w/Ronnie James Dio)
- Slayer, mid 1990s (I thought Lombardo would come back, he eventually did but I tuned out by then)
- Wanda Jackson, about 5 years ago played a shithole dive on my street. Not sure why I didn't go. She fucked Elvis and soon she too will be dead.

If I could go back in time I would like to see these bands:

- Judas Prist, Irvine Meadows 1991
- US Festival 1983, I would watch Judas Priest then go home.
- Fear, Los Angeles 1980
- Black Flag circa 1984
- Queen, any decade or album cycle
- Live Aid, Philly July 1985 (The Cars, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath with Ozzy, Tina Turner, The Pretenders, tons of others)

- Slade, whenever their heyday was
- Bauhaus, circa 1983
- The Bangles, Christmas/winter 1987
- The Cramps, circa 1980
- The Mamas And The Papas
- The Highwaymen, sometime in the late 80s
- The Traveling Wilburys, 1988
- Prince, Purple Rain tour cycle
- Demented Are Go circa 1987 with the classic band line-up
- Dead Kennedys circa 1984
- Concrete Blonde
- Howlin Wolf
- Screamin' Jay Hawkins
- Amy Winehouse
- Venom, circa 1981
- Jerry Reed, in the late 1970s

Still alive, I would like to see the following:

- Nina Hagen
- Patti Smith
- The Donnas
- Aimee Mann
- Juice Newton
- Public Enemy
- Sue Foley
- Loretta Lynn
- Tom Jones
- Hank III
- The Stray Cats
- Rosie Flores
- Kate Bush

Hopeful reunions:

- The Smiths
