I love concerts a lot. I think they are the most fun events to go to. I've been to a lot of concerts and seen a lot of different musicians over the years. And so I'm wanting to know, what is your favorite or most memorable concert that you've been to in your life? There are so many good ones. Which is your favorite? Mine is either Dave Matthews or Paul McCartney

The best concert/gig I ever went to was in 1997 at the Cobram Barooga sports club on a Saturday afternoon, there was three bands Custard, The Fireballs and The Fauves. I sat against the foldback speakers at the front of the stage and watched the show, I wore three t-shirts and asked my friends to go and get them signed for me.

The best show I've ever been to was AFI. Yahoo music holds a contest every year to pick "the next big thing," and in 2006 when I saw AFI the band that won the contest was Nightmare of You and the prize was to tour with and open for the AFI Summer Shudder tour. So for starters, I got a new favorite band at that show because I'd never heard Nightmare of You before that but fell completely in love with them. But the AFI show was amazing. Whereas at most concerts the fans call out the name of the band to get them onto the stage, AFI fans chant "Through our bleeding we are one," which is a little chilling the first time you hear 1000 or more voices in near perfect unison. But that's the best part of the show, the energy and unison of the audience. It's nearly fanatical but truly amazing. You have to be there to truly understand how it feels.
