My favorite concert was the Foghat concert at Cobo Arena in 1975, because it was the first concert I ever went to.

Trans Siberian Orchestra is probably one of my favorite concerts. It's a great story, incredible music and when I've gone with my husband, I had the best company!

Radiohead at Red Rocks. the clouds swirled in and created a surreal natural backdrop that no sound or light tech team could ever hope to duplicate.

Meadowbrook in the early 80's. George Thorogood was the featured act. Little Feat opened for them. After one song I saw a guy come from back stage to join them. I remembered that Eric Clapton was at Pine Knob the next night. And yes it was Clapton and he played the rest of the set with Little Feat. Graet night.
