I have been thinking of writting this one since ages but never got my head down and did this. But here it is now. These are shows i can see everynight, if i had a chance – the top notch. In no particular order.
Hariprasad Chaurasia at GS Medical College, Mumbai, ’95?
This concert was on the terrace of GS medical sometime in 95/96/97. It started late in the night, got over at around 1.30 in the night. Was simply awesome.
Parikrama at Mood-Indigo, Mumbai, ’95
Wow, what a concert it was. The entire concert was like a medley of classic rock. Saw this one with Girish Phadke and rest of the gang. Can’t forget Kashmir, Another Brick. Awesome.
Jazz Yatra, Rang Bhavan, Mumbai, ’02?
This one had best of Indias Jazz Artists. Carl Peters, Ranjit Barot, Louis Banks. Awesome. Highlight was Carl, his son and Ranjit. Awesome stuff.
Steve Morse and Dixie Dregs, BB King Cafe, NYC, ’05
Man, this concert was full of energy. I was on a high even after 3/4 hours after the show (no alcohol involved – it was just the music).
Paul Simon, Key Arena, Seattle, ’06
Happy Music and a genious vocalist. Awesome, amazing. And i had great seats too. 🙂
Damien Rice, Beneroya Hall, Seattle, ’07
Phew. He can bring you to tears man. Amazing show. Can never forget the unplugged version of "Cannonball". Hats off.
Derek Trucks Band, Tulalip Casino, Seattle, ’07
Woo man, Derek Trucks is god. The super solo on "Key to the highway".
Steve Vai, Moore Theater, Seattle, ’07
He can talk with his guitar. He is an absolute genious. What a show. I came back from India, left my bags home and drove to Moore theater. LOL.
Neil Young, WaMu Theater, Seattle, ’07
Absolute genious. Woo. I can never forget him singing "After the goldrush". Best acoustic show, the 1st set was. And he was no less with the electric guitar. Die Hard Neil Young fan forever.
