Probably the Beach Boys with my parents at some car show in the early seventies, or some country star like Merle Haggard or even Johnny Cash or the Carter Family, but on my own? Blue Oyster Cult with Foghat on BOC's Cultusaurus Erectus Tour '78 or '79. Awesome! And if I didn't spell that album correctly, it's because it's not their best one!
