    they have another "summer sun" which was the last one. kind of boring.

    Ira needs to get his guitar out again though. Pedro and I saw them a few months back and it was keyboard hell.

    Waitaminnit!!

    You actually SAW Captain Beefheart?

    Will you be my dad?

    Sure. Now go get me some cheese whiz, boy!!

    Captain Beefheart was the opening act for Jethro Tull's "Thick as a Brick" tour. It was my freshman year in college. I stayed in line for hours, and hit a grand slam with 8 third row center tickets.

    My brother was a drummer in a rock band at the time, and he brought up his hippie buddies for the show.

    Good times.

    I saw Honeymoon Suite open for Jethro Tull. Tull was fine, Ian got his flute on, but Honeymoon Suite is by far the worst band I've ever seen and I've seen Krokus.

    Guided by Voices probably belongs on this list. Donna Summer and James Brown too. I'd be inclined to add Sisters of Mercy as well.

    Excellent call on the Kinks, btw, WOY.

    I would say the Pixies four-LP-length run was untarnished if not for the awful, flaccid Bossanova.

    lGuided by Voices as a worst live band? Are you out of your mind?

    GBV 1992-1996 Everything before Tobin Sprout left, and Bob went all egomaniac and fired the rest of the band. I dig John Petkovic and Cobra Verde, and all, but GBV was about Bob and Tobin to me.

    This date in Guided by Voices: They played a show with The New Bomb Turks and Thomas Jefferson Slave Appartments at the Alrosa Villa in 1996. I remember falling face first into a pile of leaves and moss and compost in somebody's back yard at the afterparty. Ron and Bob still make fun of me to this very day...Haven't seen Bob for awhile, though.

Couple that with your list and their early stuff like Kontroversy and the best Brit invasion debut album of them all and you've got an amazing two-decade run.
    These two albums have massive replay-ability....

    Minutemen--all three LPs released in a 22 month span--touring all the while. Unearthly.

    I had to endure both Saxon AND Krokus as duel opening acts for Cheaptrick one night (circa 1983?)
