On my old website, I made a list of some of the artists I had seen in live performance over the years. More of a memory test than anything. Maybe it says something about my tastes in blues, jazz, rock, folk and "popular" music. Note- I never saw The Beatles or Elvis Presley live (wish I'd been in Tupelo in 1956).

This list does not include "classical" or "contemporary" music.
