    The Paladins at the Continental in Austin, TX again.
    The best and the loudest rock’n’roll gig in my life. My ears are still ringing if I think of it. :)

    If I’m picking I would day Rob Zombie, his is probably the funnest show I have seen. But honestly I couldn’t care less if I ever went to a concert again. Costs way to much drinks and food cost to much and the crowds that get belligerent ruin it.
