I was around 8 when I saw Miles Davis .
Guess Who, CNE 1971
I was around 6 or 7 when my parents forced me to sit through the Oak Ridge Boys, Lee Geenwood and Ronnie Millsap at the Strawberry Festival in beautiful Plant City, Florida.
The first concert I went to by choice was Rush when I was 12.
Wow. Where and when? What do you remember?

I was 10 years old and I went to see the Dutch/Belgian singer Raymond van het Groenewoud. My dad was with me.
Raymond noticed me (I was in the first row), and whispered to me: "Isn't it time to go to bed, my friend?"
He was joking ofcourse, but during the show he kept checking that I was alright. Fond memories of that gig, my first real rock & roll show.
Less than 10 when I went to the symphony for the first time, 10 or 11 when I saw my first jazz concert (Wynton Marsalis), 15 when I saw my first rock concert (Santana).
For my 14th birthday, got to see Creedence Clearwater Revival at the L.A. Forum in October of 1971. Still have the stub - tickets were $6.00!!!
I attended my first concert at 10, it was Liberace at The Greek Theater. The following year, I saw Michael Jackson at Dodger Stadium. Then, at 12, I saw Rush at The Forum. That's a pretty unusual start to a lifetime of concert going.
