    wow, on the cusp of the 50th PJ show, any plans to make it super special!??! My 30th show was on my 30th B-day!

    I'm trying to tie a work trip in to the Atlanta show. I figure that will be a pretty standard festival setlist but hopefully my 51st wll be extra special :) and out west

    Metallica (6)
    Queens Of The Stone Age (6)
    Static-X (6)
    Stone Temple Pilots (6)

    I'm confused, is this the top 5 bands you have seen live? or your top 5 bands and how many times you have seen them? Cause if it's the latter i will change my answer :?

    my "updated" list

    Pearl Jam- 3
    Metallica- 6
    Black Keys- 4
    Black Rebel Motorcycle Club- 5
    Alice In Chains- 3 (Jerry Cantrell solo- twice)

    1. Pearl Jam - 24
    2. The Black Crowes - 28

    The rest are not necessarily in my top 5 because I love some bands but either never got the chance to see them or have only seen them once. So the following are bands I have seen a lot but may not be favorites anymore. If that makes any sense at all.

    3. Metallica - 16
    4. Van Halen - 12
    5. Alice in Chains - 1

    Some great tastes on here...I'll do my best to select a top 5:

    1. Pearl Jam (19x)
    2. The Black Keys (8x)
    3. The Who (1x)
    4. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band (3x)
    5. The Roots (8x)

    I guess for favorites I have some honorable mentions (in no particular order), like the Red Hot Chili Peppers (1x), Foo Fighters (3x), Michael Franti & Spearhead (6x), Ben Harper (9-10x), Jimi Hendrix (0x), Beck (1x), Neil Young (1x), Gaslight Anthem (0x), Nirvana (0x), Soundgarden (0x)...I am sure if I sit here this list will go on for miles...

    I'd love to see Beck again. I only caught him in '08 when you could tell he was getting tired of touring and decided to go on a hiatus not long afetrwards.

    MMJ - 2 (just this month. I was late to the party)

    After that I'm not sure. Have seen a bunch of bands that I have enjoyed live, but probably not worthy of my top 5 list.

    Eagles of Death Metal
    Tom Petty
    Billy Joel
    Green Day (sounded great live, but their show was kinda cheesey)
    Kings of Leon (dead to me after first two albums. hearing sex on fire and Use somebody live was end for me)

    The top 3 have kinda ruined concerts for me. Most bands just don't compare to those live acts

    Here's my pathetic resume:

    Led Zep: 0 (but Page/Plant twice, including at the Spectrum)
    Pearl Jam: 2 (soon to be 3)
    Radiohead: 2
    Neil Young: 3 (once he played Greendale :sick: ; other 2 times awesome)
    John Coltrane: 0 (died about 10 years before I was born)

    Other notables:
    Foo Fighters: 4
    Death Cab for Cutie: 3
    Toad the Wet Sprocket: 2
    MMJ: 1
    Pink Floyd: 0 :cry:
    QOTSA: 1
