Memorable moments in live rock history



U2 finally arrives today here in Tampa Bay. Will Bono be waving the white flag during Sunday Bloody Sunday? Not likely. But when he did it at Red Rock back in the early 80s, it was, in my mind, one of the top 5 moments in live rock history (and I said so on the podcast yesterday). But it begs the questions: What are the other four? I'm so glad you asked, otherwise I'd have nothing to blog about this morning.

5 (tie). Madonna's "Virgin" act ties with Michael Jackson's "Moonwalk" on MTV award show.
4. Queen rocks Live Aid
3. Bono and the white flag at Red Rock
2. Jimi Hendrix plays the Star Spangled Banner
1. The Beatles on Ed Sullivan

And by the way, after listening to the new podcast a half dozen times, I can say I STILL can't remember the name of the girl we tried to leave behind at the U2 concert. Clay, help!
