Some people make lists of things they want to accomplish before they die. Others - like me - make lists of bands I want to see before I go gently into that good night.
I was thinking about my list this past weekend. There are still a lot of bands left to see - but I've also made quite a dent, especially this past year.
My master list (in absolutely no order):
Guns n' Roses
Rage Against the Machine
I'm sure my list doesn't fit with some trendy/hipster/indie magazine crowd. Those types probably list bands like Death Cab for Cutie and Arctic Monkeys or something. I think for a band to make your "death list" they better be classic. Sure, I like a lot of new bands - and quite frankly I've seen all the ones I really dig.
I'm doubtful I'll ever see Led Zeppelin, but they are on the list because they are a big dream. Guns n' Roses made the list - but I mean the classic line-up, not Axl Rose and Friends. We'll see if that comes to fruition. I can't even imagine how much tickets would cost for that reunion. I bet scalpers are already praying for that day.
So, who is on your list? I bet we share a few bands in common!
