Just saw AC/DC in Feb with 60,000 of our best friends! Amazing show!

I love alot of the bands on your list, I would especially like to see Van Zant!

... I saw Led Zep in 1977 when I was just a teen ager! I had just graduated HS!

How about some Stevie Ray Vaughan?
Eric Clapton
BB King
Johnny Lang
Traffic
Allman Brothers
Have you ever heard of Gary Moore? He does an amazing song titled "Still Got the Blues for You." (among others)
He originally played for Thin Lizzy.
Jeff Healey Band

My husband like Pink Floyd so thats on the stereo alot.
...and lately we've been getting into some country artists as well.

Rob Plant went to school with my mother in law and lives in the same town as me .
Lizzy were a fantastic outfit also,there are sooooo many to list.
Managed to see AC/DC twice .Hopefully finances permitting we will go to Donnington Download this year as DC / Motorhead /Slash are all headline acts spread over 3 days + another 60 Acts
Still now't gets close to being at the front and at the feet of Skynyrd.

I saw AC/DC in '77 as well, with Bon Scott. I think Brian is an amazing replacement. He has an incredible voice.

We didn't have great seats for AC/DC but it is a different kind of show...just to rock and roll... so it was ok. If you get to go, you won't believe the props. It is like a show from the 80's. Cannons, trains, a giant Rosie...Too funny!

With Lynyrd Skynrd you feel really a part of the songs, and when you sit up close ( esp with kids) you are, in our view- engaged. The band really goes out of their way to shake hands, high five, and give stuff to the kids in the front rows so it is a really neat experience.

I too have seen AC/DC twice in the late 70's....... first time they opened for Forener, second show they opened for Thin Lizzy, and both shows were with Bon Scott, although I have seen many acts over the years (still have ever stub, beleive it or not) Southern rock I can live without.

Bands I listen to now are :

Rebel pride
southern gentleman
Blackberry smoke
Preacherstone
Hogjaw

Southern rock rules !!
