Only one rule - limit yourself to bands you could realistically have seen but chose not to/were unable to.

Siouxsie and the Banshees
The Ramones
Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros
Curve (denied by tour being cancelled after the drummer got himself arrested)

Me too!

I think the '98 tour was a reformation of sorts but it fizzled out.

The Ramones.


Still kicking myself in the teeth for not going to at least one of their many farewell tours. Didn't see it coming that one day they would actually stop touring Surprised
One time in 93 I had tickets for a festival they'd play with The Cramps. Unforseen circumstances made it impossible for me to go that day. Crying or Very sad

The Sisters of Mercy, Hultsfred, Sweden, 1991.
Just an hour away from the place I grew up. Several people at school talked about how good they were, some even suggesting I should go to see them to experience something awesome. But I only recognised the name and didn't go. Only 4 months later I discovered the band - and what I missed Rolling Eyes

Iggy and the Stooges, Stockholm 2002. Had all the time in the world and had started driving from Stockholm. I decided not to turn around after hearing it on the radio on the day of the gig Rolling Eyes

Motörhead. Had lots of occasions, and now it's too late Sad

Bowie without a doubt.
Had the chance to see him during the Earthling tour, but thought it was too expensive...

Still kicking myself in the head for that.

A lot of good bands last Graspop, due to a severe knee injury during the festival proper.
Had to miss Emperor that way, and that really sucked!

In my lifetime? NIN, Kate Bush, Lana Del Rey amongst others (largely cash-related).

Other than that - Led Zep, Hendrix, early Sabbath etc.

The Ramones - got a last minute request from a co-worker 89/90/91'ish, she suddenly had a spare ticket. I could have seen them for FREE! But I made some lame excuse, knowing her big and tall, mean looking boyfriend (that scared the hell outta me, always those nasty stares) also was in the house (actually, the OLD Fryshuset). OMG, I still regret it to this day.

Ah yes, Bowie for me too...
Missed him on the Earthling tour and swore I'd go the next time.
In (I believe) 2004 he was going to play Werchter festival. Pixies and PJ Harvey also so for the first time ever I bought a ticket for that festival. Werchter festival was so middle of the road I never wanted to go there, but changed my mind for Bowie. Needed to see him.
Days before the gig came the bad news: he suffered from a heart condition and cancelled the rest of the tour. Gutted... He never performed again.

I just wish I could remember the gigs I've been to. But really regret missing the sisters at RAH.

Would very much liked to have seen:
Siouxsie and the Banshees, as I had all their records up to one point.
The Jam
A really good full-on reggae concert - obviously Bob Marley and the Wailers would be great but would settle for any of the old school guys.
I'm quite into my 80s electronic so would have enjoyed some early Yazoo and Human League
I'd also have loved to have seen Tom Waits before his voice went south

Yep, I did as well. Silly man.

Crying or Very sad

I should've gone to more early Manics gigs, more mid 90s Suede gigs and more Pulp gigs. Esp. more Pulp gigs.

Bolt Thrower

I discovered them very late, only a couple of years ago, and when I had decided to see them next time they came around, their drummer died and they split up...

Yeah, and the poor man's Bolt Thrower (Memoriam) is just a shadow of that...
