My First Concert


My first concert....Devo at the Stanley Theatre, Pittsburgh, PA, 1980. That was an education. I was a middle schooler wearing a turtleneck, surrounded by folks with chains hanging between their nose and ears. Good times!

Whip It Good!

Ah, memories, Penny! My first concert was Chicago with James Taylor as a lead in! James was coming from being on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson for the first time at the Civic Arena which they are now tearing down.:( Wish I had a tape of that concert! It was great.

Hi Nancy, my Pgh buddy! I also saw Carly Simon in concert in Pgh, for one of the shows when she got severe stage fright. Best show I saw in Pgh was Diana Ross...crazy good!

My mom took me to my first big concert at the Hartford Civic center to see John Denver. I was only 10 or 11 at the time!
