I've seen Cheap Trick before and they put on a great show so I'm looking forward to that. 38 Special kicks ass live too. Other than that it will be nice to just to get away from everything for a few days, listen to some tunes, and drink myself into a coma.
Not quite Compost this year
I like Cheap Trick a lot as they are one of the longest running power pop bands in history and I imagine they rely upon the older material for the majority of their set. I last seen them wayyyy back in 1983 and haven't gotten around to check them out since..but I would without any arm twisting, believe me.
Other than that, I really like Grand Funk Railroad and UFO a lot and would love to see them. I can stomach 38 Special in small doses (let's say a set)..the rest I'd be out in the parking lot drinking thru I think.....ZZ Top especially pisses me off in that it's talent wasted for the most part...they hit it big with that goofy synth sound as a backing track on Eliminator
and never let go of it....they've been coasting ever since. Billy Gibbons is a great guitar player, no disputing that...but he could do so much more than he does and it makes me mad...as a result, I don't know if I could sit thru a set of theirs or not now.
