It’s not the side-effects of the cocaine
I’m thinking that it must be love
Written by David Bowie
From the album Station To Station
As unlikely as it may seem I saw a number of “classic rock” bands for the first time two decades or more on from when they first set out. David Bowie on his Sound + Vision tour, a tour which he swore would be the last time all of his hits were dragged out and paraded on stage. Considering the fact that he retired from touring on stage in 1973, I took this statement with a grain of salt, but it was still one killer show.
I saw the Black Crowes opening up for Robert Plant at the old Maple Leaf Gardens. Rod Stewart at the CNE Stadium anyone? Truth be told I really wasn’t that impressed with Rod the Mod. Haven’t been back to see him since. Even got to see the closest thing any of us will probably ever come again to seeing the mighty Led Zeppelin in concert when Page and Plant brought their tour to the Skydome Skytent. I am, of course, assuming that you were not one of the lucky few that got to see LZ’s reunion at the O2 Arena in London, England in 2008.
So check out, if you dare, all the concerts that the 90’s had on offer for me.
