Favorite Concerts: The Who at the Aud in December of 1979, the night after 11 members of The Who "family" were killed. I talked with Roger Daltry backstage that night after the concert It was by far my most surreal backstage concert experience. The show was one of the most emotional a Buffalo concert crowd would ever witness. Led Zeppelin at The Aud in 72, and Bruce Springsteen at The Aud in 1980. Bruce and I talked about Motown music and 1950's autos after the concert ended after 1am!
Biggest Concert Thrill: Seeing Paul McCartney for the first time.
