I've been to very few concerts in my life. The only ones I can remember are Jimmy Buffet (an awesome concert here in NoVa), Roger Whittaker (saw him at the Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfurt, Germany, many years ago), and Gary Lewis and the Playboys (at the Allegheny County Fair in Pittsburgh back when I was a teenager). I saw Don McLean in concert at Penn State a long time ago as well ... he was finishing up the concert with "American Pie," and when he really started into the guitar whanging after the slow introduction, one of the strings broke with a very amplified TWANNNNNNGGGGG. He stopped, sat in silence for a second or two, then looked up at the audience and said, "Damn ... I broke a string!" The crowd went nuts, he replaced the string while carrying on an impromptu conversation with the audience, then started up again. A great concert!
