  1. I’ll never forget 10/20/72.. I was 17 and in the morning my family gave me my first car, a 1966 Mustang and that night I picked up my friends and drove us to the Civic to see Bowie..who blew our minds.. I’ll always remember when Bowie did ” Rock and Roll Suicide ” and he got to the ” give me your hands ” line..we were all standing and reaching out our hands to him…gawd it was so amazing to be young in the 70s.. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.. and I was fortunate enough to grow up in Santa Monica so I saw so many fabulous bands there..

    • Fortunate was and is the word. Anyone who got a true taste of the ’60s and/or ’70s was very fortunate to have lived that history – amazing times!
      Thanks for visiting, I appreciate knowing that others enjoy remembering or hearing of those days.

  2. I believe that Bowie played in Los Angeles in 1971 on a “Man who sold the world” tour. He played at a small club but I don’t know which one – it may have been the Whiskey.

    • I remember hearing that too. The Big Buzz for Bowie was with the SMCA concert as it was broadcast on the radio and was considered his U.S. “debut”.
      Thanks for visiting the site!

  15. I was at the Hollywood Palladium on March 12, 1973 – the day before my 17th birthday. It was incredible. Recently we saw the ‘Jean Genies’ (a David Bowie tribute band) perform in a nearby roadhouse. It sent me back in time to this amazing concert. Thanks for this column. We must have been at several of the same performances during that era. I was at ‘Before the Flood’ and ‘4-way Street’ concerts at the Forum where I also saw Lee Michaels, James Gang, Led Zepplin, Jethro Tull, and others. I saw the Band (1976) at the Hollywood Bowl and Cat Stevens (1972) at the Greek Theatre. Many memorable nights were spent at ‘micro’ Woodstocks camping out in the Forum parking lot to buy tickets the next morning.
