Wish I'd seen The Jam and Stone Roses.

Seen Weller 4 times solo and love it when he plays The Jam songs, but it has only been about 5 different songs now.

As for bands I have seen, not many the people would call classics, but I did see Smashing Pumpkins before they split up. Ian Brown opening with 'I wanna be adored' was amazing.

Wish I'd seen the Cocteau Twins...don't think they toured much however but I would've been too young.

I have seen Liz Frazer sing Teardrop with Massive Attack though...quite a moment I tell you !

The only band that I wanted to see were probably my favourite band of all time
THE CLASH.

Manged to see Joe Strummer band before the great man passed away !!!

Loved The Jam as well managed to see them a couple of times including in for the sound check at Carlisle
One of the bouncers wanted to hit me for some reason?
And we travelled from the lake district to the farewell tour via mini bus to wembley arena then come home.

OH to be young and daft again !!!!!!

Was lucky to get to see most bands I like. From early Queen as support, to Stone Roses, and everything inbetween, too numerous to mention.

Only ones I never got to see cos was too young were Hendrix, Sweet (with Connolly, saw them as a three piece in Liverpool '81 though) and T.Rex.
