First: Cinderella and White Snake at UNCW's Trask Coliseum. They were there for Azalea Fest. I must have been 12 or 13.

Best: Emerlad Isle Beach Music Fest 1995 (the music was an afterthought)

Worst: Kid Rock & Cheryl Crow

I've also enjoyed all the Wide Spread Panic shows I've been to.

My wife is from Cadilac, MI and KISS came to her town and spent a week there and played a free concert at the high school in 1975. She was too young to remember but her brother said it was unbelievable.

First: Matchbox 20

Best: B.o.B

Worst: Gym Class Heroes (Although, it wasn't them. Travie McCoy was an amazing performer and it was so much better than I anticipated. The problem was the sound was so beyond terrible, you couldn't make out what was going on half the time.)

Yes, I know I'm young.

First: Poison/ Warrant in Columbia great show but was creeped out that the bassist of Poison was staring me down like a piece of meat dude wanted me and I was 13 or 14 at the time.

Best: Tie AC/DC at the North Charleston Coliseum or The Faith No More/ Metallica/ Guns n Roses concert at Williams Brice Stadium

Worst: Cinderella/Extreme/ Davis Lee Roth concert at Ladson Fairgrounds wasn't that the show was bad but 100 degree weather all day almost killed me ( I was taken to Trident Hospital after passing out from the heat and booze)
