I saw James Brown at Bonnaroo 2003. I know he was getting up there in age but he absolutely killed it and had the huge crowd in the palm of his hand. It was his birthday and they had the audience sing happy birthday to him. He seemed genuinely touched by it.

Artists I wish I could go back see:

Led Zeppelin

Hendrix

The Doors

Bob Marley

Grateful Dead in their prime

Radiohead (still have a chance for this one)

Saw KISS twice on one their first reunion tour. Phenomenal shows, sat about 5th row center stage for the first one. Would have loved to have seen them back in the 70s, but I was barely old enough to walk at the time, lol.

My list (in their prime - no particular order):

Queen

Journey

The Police

The Doors

Bee Gees

Beatles

ELO

Fleetwood Mac

Eagles

AC/DC with Bon Scot

Hendrix

Two great shows with old dudes that had to be as good as any in their Prime.

The Cure in Charlotte at TWC arena. A 3 hour no break concert that was incredible and recorded on HDNET.

Iron Maiden at Verizon Wireless ..a semi religious experience.

Opeth at Amos's Southend CD quality sound at a "Good Volume"* Good Volume..further proving I am too old now. also some of the best live guitar tone I have ever heard.
