    If you had a time machine and could see any artist/band in any era, who/when would it be?
    I’ll start:

    The Stones ‘72 tour (my dad saw this show in Boston, and I hate him for it.)

    The Cramps (anytime)

    Screamin’ Jay Hawkins (anytime)

    Hank Williams (anytime)

    The Gun Club (1984)

    Jerry Lee Lewis (‘64 Star Club show)

    Dylan (1966)

    Bo Diddley (1960)

    Link Wray (1960)

    The Velvet Underground & Nico (1966-67)

    Black Flag (1983)

    Buddy Holly (anytime)

    Little Richard (1950’s)

    Howlin’ Wolf (anytime)

    This is really hard i’m gonna force myself to stop or else it’ll get exhausting...

    Eddie, Gene, and Little Richard down under 1957! Man, could you imagine?!
    I believe It was after that tour when Little Richard decided to retire from the world of “secular” music.
    That lasted a couple years.

    I go to sleep at night wondering about these things...what was the day like for the Burnett's brothers when they recorded Rockabilly Boogie...or when the Wraymen were loading their gear in to play a biker bar....or record Deuces Wild. I interview bands for a magazine called Mad Music for Bad People and the 'time machine' question is always there.

    Well.... Elvis of course, at any time in his career.

    I would definitely like to nip back 2000 years or so to catch JC and the Apostles to see what all the fuss was about. :)

    The Stray Cats in the early days

    Eddie and Gene (My mom and pop both saw both of them live, at different venues as it was before they met :( )

    Buddy Holly

    Black Sabbath any time in the early days

    John Hartford at absolutely any time in his career

    I would love to have seen my favorite trios in their young edgy heydays. Rush and The Police in the 70s.

    Graceland tour.

    Belly on their youth, 90s.

    This would definitely be a long list but top 5 are:
    Miles Davis band of the 60s - early 70s
    Pink Floyd in the late 60s - early 70s
    and lastly...
    There were so many hard bop era jazz combos that I'd love to have seen live that it's hard to pin down individual lineups, they probably all rank right up there w/ the previous 4 as well. Picking one (well 2) I'd say either one iteration or the other of Thelonious Monk or Dizzy Gillespie's outfits in the 50s.

    Josephine Baker, circa 1927... She did a lot more than just dance in a banana skirt...
