    And so you see, I have come to doubt
    All that I once held as true
    I stand alone without beliefs
    The only truth I know is you.

    Temple of the Dog... both nights for Philly. I had an exam that a professor wouldn't work with me on for taking it early or late. Would have been quite the drive and I needed that day to travel. 

    Still pissed that I missed them.

    Soul asylum/ Meat puppets. Had won free tix, but it rained and flooded real bad on our side of town. Couldn't make it to venue.

    Tibet 98.  Best festival lineup ever.  (PJ, radiohead, chili peppers, Beastie Boys, REM, beck, dave matthews, etc).

    My ride bailed last minute.  

    I was there.  Great show...though the rain really screwed things up.  No Beck and shortened sets by PJ, RHCP etc.  This was Fruscientes first show back though.  PJ cut their set short so RHCP could play a few songs.  They used PJ's gear.

    I had tickets to see both Blind Melon and Nirvana in late 1993.  Had to miss both because I was a high school freshman and didn't have a ride.  bummer

    “I know this song so well, I can smoke a cigarette, have a drink, brush my teeth, take a shit, and mow the lawn while singing it. But I'll only be doing a couple of those things during this version.”
  • Beck- St. Louis 2000, Midnite Vultures tour

    Road trip freshman year of college.  Stopped in my hometown to pick more friends up and just got snowed in by a horrible blizzard, could not make it. Never did get a chance to see Beck live.  One friend that drove straight through by himself loved the show though and certainly rubbed it in to us.

    Black Crowes- Chicago Theatre 2010

    I won free tickets for this one, I think it was their acoustic and electric set tour.  Had a very very minor outpatient surgical procedure a couple days before that I didn't think would stop me from going.  Day of I just didn't feel well enough yet so couldn't go last minute.

    Concert gods sometimes even luck out- another near miss was the only time I saw The Rolling Stones in 2003 at Comiskey in Chicago.  Leaving from college again, I had let a buddy borrow my car to go back home.  Which was not good when our friend who was driving bailed last minute on the concert due to work, last second scramble to borrow a car successfully. That was one I would have been super bummed to miss!

    No time to be void or save up on life, you gotta spend it all.
