VU's "Live '69" is one of my all-time favorite albums. It's been years since I last listened to it, but I definitely remember the part where Lou asks the audience if they want a long set or two short ones.

My notables aren't as impressive as yours, since I'm a few years behind you. But I've seen the Stones (Voodoo Lounge tour ... blech), Dylan a couple of times, Alex Chilton, and a few SST punk bands back in their pioneering days in the early- to mid-1980s, such as Black Flag and the like. I've seen the Replacements. I don't know if I have ever met anyone who has seen the Beatles. John Entwistle once walked down the college drag where I live, and I saw him, but was unable to go to his concert.

And I'm starting to sound very lame ...

Oh yeah. I saw Jonathan Richman on three separate occasions.

I saw Richman just once, somewhere around mid/late 80s. Loved it.

I should have seen more of the punkers but i had issues with showing i was more punk and they was just kids. Mostly being a bad sport cause my band didn't win a record contract or fame.

As for pop name dropping (ie. your Entwhiste story), Thursday I was surprised to come face to face with Lil John when coming off an elevator. My guess (based on the tenants of the building) he was going to see an investment banker.

SKEEE SKEEEEEE!

oh yeah

I saw Alex Chilton washing dishes on Bourbon St. in New Orleans.

He's better with a guitar but I haven't seen him either. I think. There are some nights I am not sure what I was seeing.

cheers.
