Writer's Block: Legends of Rock
There are a few concerts that go down in musical history—Altamont, Woodstock, Live Aid, the Hannah Montana Best of Both Worlds tour—as legendary experiences. What live show stands as legend in your own experience?

We were fifty feet from one of the speaker towers; that show probably contributed to the tinnitus that plagues me to this day.
In fact, I have already written about it over here.
