My Band Bucket List
I love music. My mom really deserves all of the credit for my love of music. When I was growing up she rarely watched TV, but played the radio or put stacks of 33 records on the old family stereo. Her favs were Elvis, Kenny Rogers, Simon & Garfunkel, and Englebert Humperdink, to name a few. As a result, I enjoy a wide range of music; from Elvis to country music to classic rock to 80's bands.
As I've rocked through life, I've been able to see some truly amazing bands and performers like . . . U2 (twice), Van Halen (w/Sammy Hagar), Tears for Fears, OMD, Bryan Adams, Thompson Twins, The Cranberries, Air Supply, Howard Jones, Kenny Loggins, Collin Raye (twice), Garth Brooks (was a dream come true), Trisha Yearwood, Alan Jackson, Keith Urban (one of the best concerts ever!), Tim & Faith, Martina McBride, Billy Currington, Trace Adkins, Clint Black, Kenny Chesney (twice), Rascal Flatts, Keith Anderson, Vince Gill, Duran Duran, Billy Idol, and Depeche Mode, just to name a few.
My hubby and I were talking tonight about our Bucket Lists of bands and performers we still want to see. Here's my list:
Def Leppard (I so regret not seeing them in high school!)
Journey (W/Steve Perry but I know it will probably NEVER happen.)
Pat Benatar (Wish I could sing like her!)
Kool & The Gang
Huey Lewis & the News
Kenny Rogers (He comes to Vegas all of the time. I can't believe I haven't gone to see him!)
ABBA (They don't sing together anymore, do they?)
I sincerely hope all of the above performers are still alive and still singing. (I try to keep up on the latest deaths in music, but sometimes I miss one.) Wonder which one I'll cross off my list next?
Who's on your bucket list?
