Obviously that would be my preference, but not an option. I wasn't even a glint in my dad's eye when a lot of my favourite bands were at their peak. I've been able to see a few, Sabbath, Purple, Uriah Heep, Bowie etc - and I'm much happier to say I got to see them before they pass than I would be if I were to compare them to their peak. Like you, Hendrix, Beatles, Floyd, Zappa, Rainbow would have all been high up on my list. Sucks I'll never get the chance.
