My Bucket List Bands

When news hit that Malcolm Young was too sick to record, and possible tour, with AC/DC, one of my fellow on air jocks, Bobby Guy (from Great Country 102.5) asked me if I had seen them live.  I answered “yes” because I’ve seen pretty much everyone live.  He then asked me one tough question, “what bands are on my bucket list?”  Meaning, what bands have I not seen live that I need to see.  That’s a really hard question because I’ve seen pretty everyone worth seeing.  Let’s examine further:

  • Iron Maiden:10 times
  • KISS: 5
  • Judas Priest: 8-10
  • Sabbath/Ozzy: 10-12 combined
  • GWAR: I lost count, but probably around 10-12
  • Van Halen: 2
  • AC/DC: 2
  • Alice Cooper: 4
  • Motley Crue: 4
  • Metallica: 2
  • Megadeth: 3
  • Motorhead: 2
  • Dio: 3 (2 times solo, once with Heaven and Hell)
  • Pantera: 3
  • Queensryche: a lot

I’ve also seen The Stones, Rush, Ace Frehley, Danzig, the Misfits, Marky Ramone, The New York Dolls, Slayer, Anthrax, Testament, Rob Zombie, Mike Ness, Mastodon, Opeth, Ghost…and those are the ones off the top off my head!

As you can see, I’ve seen a ton of my favorite bands; some have been in sold out arenas, while others were in tiny clubs with less than 100 people.  So this got me thinking, who haven’t I seen live?  Who are my “bucket bands?”

I had to think long and hard about this, but here it is, in no particular order, my bucket list (granted the majority of these bands are underground metal acts) :

  • King Diamond
  • Manowar (assuming they don’t cancel, again, I’ll be seeing them in November)
  • Social Distortion
  • Tom Petty
  • Foo  Fighters
  • Electric Wizard
  • Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats
  • Carcass
  • Pentagram
  • Candlemass

Now, I’m sure many of the artists, if not all, listed above are unfamiliar with you, and that’s ok.  The point of this pointless blog is for you to think of artists on the top of your “bucket list.”  Feel free to comment below on yours, and let me know if there are any artists I’ve missed.
