80's - everything (my wife is 5 year younger than me and hates everything 80's, so I like to drive her crazy by playing the "who sang that song" game

90's - it actually started late 80's but continued on, MACGYVER!

Grateful Dead 10.14.94 MSG. Amazing Scarlet->Fire, got the boys a standing ovation.

Also 6.19.95 (Giants Stadium). Friends and I were 5th row Jerry side...he comes out for the 2nd set, straps on his guitar, steps up to the mic opens his mouth to sing...starts laughing uncontrollably and steps away...don't know what was so funny, but they busted out Iko Iko after he regained his composure. Was also the last show I saw.

OR.....

Don't remember which particular show in June '93 @ Giants Stadium. Traffic opened and it was the first time I had floor seats. We walked in as Traffic was finishing up their set...they were playing Dear Mr. Fantasy w/Jerry sitting in. I will never forget walking on the field, seeing the stadium lights pop on at one point and seeing the entire place JUMPING. You could feel the whole place shake...it was unbelievable.

All that and when I started dating my wife....5.1.94. For our 1yr anniversary she bought me tix to see the dead the night before the show mentioned above when we were 5th row. Heh, I didn't even take her to the show...she wasn't really into them. Too bad because that would have been the 1st and last time she would have seen 'em.

Melissa Etheridge Concert Garden State Arts Center 8-92, 1200 women making out to her music, that was an experience I won't forget. I'd say one of favorite things from 90's was the internet, great invention. Cell phones that weren't the size of brick were great too.

80's - Skid Row and High School Dances laughing

90's - Pearl Jam and tailgate parties and drinking Miller Light by the bonfire knowing damn well I shouldn't be there.

Hey, I did that just last weekend! Lit a fire in the copper tub in the backyard, put on some tunes and just stared into the fire throwing back a few miller lites...
