There's seems to be a meme going around that induces bloggers to post the group they first saw in concert. Besides some pathetic agape-love christian rock and some very excellent live jazz I saw courtesy of my parents in the seventies, my first real concert was The Dixie Dregs, 1981, in an old movie theatre in Petaluma, California. Steve Morse, their guitar player, went on to join Deep Purple. There's not much of The DD on YouTube, but here they are in 1978. Is it worth mentioning that I was sharing a big bag of weed with a group of friends, and that my memory is very hazy? I remember the stage colors, bright pinks and reds, most of all.
Wow, no wonder I never made it to a Day on the Green.
