Grand Funk Railroad. About 5 years ago. Awesome!!! High energy rock and roll! They played a benefit concert in Detroit, for Bosnia, that turned into a US tour. The venue they played in Atlanta (Chastain Park) really blew goats, but the music was great!

I would have to say Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. I think mostly becuase it was spring break with lots of Bikinis and lots of beer!!! I saw them at Spinnakers in Panama City Beach. I,ve been wanting to bring them to my club for a concert but haven't been able to work out the details yet.

My favorite was Rush (Hold Your Fire tour, 1988). Would have loved to have been there for the making of All the World's a Stage.
I saw Buddy Guy a month ago at a small club in Jacksonville. He played for 2-1/2 hours. I sat 5 feet from the stage. Lost a bit of hearing, I'm sure.
Next would be REO Speedwagon back in '85.
In their heyday, I would have loved to have seen Lynrd Skynrd, Journey, Styx, Foreigner, Alice Cooper (back in the 70's), and the original Van Halen.
Blue Oyster Cult is my next concert goal.
I have caught Rush in concert 8 times now dating back to the 2112 tour in ( I think) 78 Last saw em in 96 for the Test for Echo tour. They are so professional and the music sounds like you're sittin in the studio next to them. Not to mention it ROCKS.Neil Pert(drums) is simply amazing to behold. There is no substitute. Peace y'all Cyberkhat.
