      I can't remember. Ha ha, joking. My college years were 1968-1972 in Berkeley, so I saw Jimi, CSNY, Clapton, Santana, the Dead, the Stones, Tower of Power, Steve Miller with Boz Scaggs, and on and on and on. It was great!

          In New Jersey--On campus: The Pretenders, The Shirts, Blotto, Dave Edmunds, The Ramones with Blue Angel opening (Cyndi Lauper was the lead singer), Ellen Foley, Frank Zappa. Off campus during my college years: the Plasmatics, the Cars, Adam & the Ants, DEVO, The Police, Joe Jackson, Southside Johnny, The Smithereens (many times; they were still just playing local clubs).

          Can you guess the decade by the bands?

            During college years? EVERYBODY! (Hendrix, The Band, Howlin Wolf...... & everybody else)
            On campus? Muddy Waters, Albert King, Sun Ra, Sha Na Na (before they even had that name, their first ever gig, Columbia Univ. choral group "the Kingsmen" put on a "Greaser Nite" spring of 69... later to my surprise they showed up at Woodstock as Sha Na Na),Elephant's Memory (pre John Lennon... they had to dumb it down for his songs) Grateful Dead & last but not least the inimitable David Peel & the Lower East Side!
            Probably some more if I ruminate on it a while....

              Oh yea, probably The Holy Modal Rounders, & I think Buddy Guy too, hard to remember. Maybe Mothers of Invention? These were all on campus

                      If it makes you feel any better, I flunked out a couple of times. I liked everything about college except, what did you call those things? Oh, yeah, classes.

                          Me also my brother. Especially those 8:00 a.m. s.o.b.'s Are you kidding me? And as a final straw I had final exams scheduled for my three core classes on a Friday. As it developed Bob Dylan and his girlfriend at the time Joan Baez, were scheduled to appear that same Friday at N.C. State University. That was a "no brainer". Skipped the exams and went to see Robert Zimmerman and Joan. Flunked all three classes, but had a memorable night at N.C. State. You've got to vote with your heart.

                            For the record Rev, I attend many events and second lines here in the city where I'm one of the few Pale Faces in the crowd. I don't recall seeing YOU at any of them.

                              I did a year and a half of part time community college just to keep reality and my Dad off my back. Saw a lot of shows during that time, just none on campus. College of Lake County wasn't known for it's extracurricular activities. It's where a lot of the burnouts went from Libertyville High School. My High School. We told the girls we went to UCLA just to impress them, but to us it stood for "University Closest to Libertyville Area". Marlon Brando and Tom Morrello from Rage Against the Machine were LHS alums.
