This list only includes acts that have made a name for themselves. There would be countless other lesser lights if I could remember whom they all were, but there are over 200 here, ain't that enough?! When I've seen an act more than once, I put the number of concerts after the name.

For the truly obsessed, check out my Grateful Dead set lists and Bob Dylan set lists.

I've also seen Nelson Mandela, Mikhail Gorbachev, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton speak. More importantly, I've heard Allen Ginsberg recite his poetry. I've also interviewed Ted Kennedy and Barney Frank. And shook hands with Gary Hart and Bill Clinton. I washed my hands shortly after each of those two!
