    Wow... too many.
    I can list 20 of them and still left a lot out.
    Besides, I’d say 90% of those you already listed (the other 10% it’s people I’ve already seen live) myself. For those I never saw live, I would probably add:
    - Robert Johnson anyway anyhow anywhere
    - The Who at the Marquee in Wardour Street in 1967
    - Uncle Tupelo at Cicero’s in St.Louis in 1991
    - Husker Du at 7th Street Entry in Minneapolis in 1987
    - Ramones at CBGBs in 1977

    ... and I could go on forever.

    Top of my list would be the Doors at the Whiskey in '68 when they were supported by Led Zeppelin.

    Then we'd have:
    Hanoi Rocks (I have seen all of the members in various projects (except Razzle RIP)
    The classic Skynyrd lineup
    Cab Calloway
    The premier of any of Mozart's work. (or Beethoven. Or Chopin. Or Liszt...)

    I saw Lynyrd Skynyrd at their peak. Ronnie kicked the monitor off the stage and said, "this PA sucks." Then they broke into Sweet Home Alabama. That's about all I can recollect at the present time.
