Musically: The first time I Selling England by the Pound (when it got to the "dance right on" part) was absolutely magical.

Real life: Having Toby Driver recognize me from a previous concert and then signing my vinyl copy of Coyote (and me generally freaking out like a little kid)

I started college in 1969....too many memories over the next 5 or 6 years to recall and usually when we were listening we were ...uh..in an altered state.

I did really enjoy seeing Yes in 1973 and Tull in 1974........that was special.
Saw KC 3 times in Chicago in the 80's and early 90's....wish I could have seen them in the Wetton years but I was never in the right place at the right time....it's always about timing.

Shows by Yes (2010 and 2013), Jon Anderson (2011) and Roger Waters (The Wall Tour, 2012).
Sex with Supper's Ready playing on the laptop beside the bed (don't try it; too chaotic).

I met Adrian Belew during the intermission of a Belew and the Bears concert at a small venue in Lexington, KY. It must have been around 1986. I asked him what it was like being part of the second coming of Crimson. He said something to the effect that the band was an adventure in great musicians with even greater personalities.

We laughed, and he headed on to prepare for the second half of the show. His energy is incredible.

I remember hearing Pink Floyd's The Wall at College when someone put the album on during a break, and nobody went back to class... we just sat there in awe of this collossus.

I also cherish going to Yes concert a few years back in Melbourne at the Palais Theatre. Met some nice PA members too and really felt good hearing the legends belt out all thier classics. I nearly died when Starship Trooper cranked up.

Seeing the last ever concert by The Nice in Oct 2003 in Watford (London), UK. After the show got to talk with Lee Jackson for a few minutes, he was genuinely cordial and very gracious.

 Getting my PA review of Viljans Oga published on Anglagard's facebook page, then sending them a message thanking them, then getting a reply back from Johan, then becoming friends and talking with him on facebook. Guys, he's super nice. That's a band of truly wonderful musicians and wonderful people. Thumbs Up

Lots of memories.

 Perhaps my purchase of Classic Yes a few years ago and listening to it over and over--later leading to my collection of all things early Yes, and about a month of only listening to that music. also..

discovering Rennaisance (on radio)

 the two winters I spent doing my prog rock themed radio shows 

one night when I created an epic playlist and spent about 5h of close uninterrupted listening (Lets see.. I think it was Gates of Delerium, Echoes, Octavarium, Supper's Ready, Close to the Edge, Ommadawn). I think it left me floating

Not as much for concerts for me, except the Baja Prog festival the last two years was very memorable.

How about some Indian prog bands?  I'm familiar with musicians who are Indian influenced (Fareed Haque is a good example), but no native bands from India!  Please share what you like and what is popular!

^Thank you very much!  I'll start digging into those!  I personally LOVE Indian instrumental music with tablas (ragas), and Fareed Haque weaves Indian sounds into his brand of fusion!
